I sent an email to Rep Vern Buchanan (R)

You've lost my vote, Congressman Buchanan.  

>  Buchanan has been targeted by conservative media for not standing up to defund Obamacare. As Nathan Mehrens, president of the Americans for Limited Government, explained: “When it counted, Representative Buchanan was nowhere to be found in the fight to defund Obamacare.”
Buchanan has said he wants to repeal Obamacare, but when pressed has said he would like to keep certain portions of it.

>  At a time when the conservative members in the Florida delegation were attempting to defeat the Boehner-Pelosi “Doc Fix” bill that is slated to cost over $200 billion dollars over the next ten years, Buchanan aggressively championed it and praised its final passage: “This bipartisan bill is a testament to what Washington can accomplish when we work together to solve problems that will improve the lives of others.” [4] This legislation will do greater damage to an already ailing Medicare program, exploding costs while making zero substantial or lasting reforms.

>  When House conservatives fought tooth and nail to hold the president accountable and defund his unlawful amnesty actions, Buchanan cheerily backed the establishment call to surrender and hand the administration a clean DHS spending bill. Buchanan even went as far as to mimic Democratic talking points during the fight, raising concerns over using Department of Homeland Security funding as a leverage point to undo the illegal actions (the only constitutionally accepted means for doing so). He said: “I think it would be a cloud over all Homeland Security, in my opinion. We got to have people on guard, because we have real threats to our country that are going on. It would also create uncertainty... Immigration is broken; we need to fix it… and we will."

>  Florida House conservatives led the revolt at the beginning of the 114th Congress to unseat Speaker Boehner and replace him with a more conservative leader. Rep. Buchanan not only abstained from this effort, but as anticipated, supported Rep. Boehner at the expense of the effort. As the press reported: “While Floridians were at the heart of the revolt against Boehner, U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Longboat Key, was not among the group. Buchanan’s support for Boehner was never in any jeopardy. Buchanan said he thinks Boehner has done a good job in finding ways to work together with everyone in the Republican caucus.” Buchanan later said, “Boehner has been an effective leader.” [6]

You strongly supported the TPA/TPP (Obama fast track)

Lets not forget all the spending...

"Mr" Buchanan, if yours is the only name on the next ballot, I'd rather stay home.  You don't "represent" your constituents. You represent the DC-machine; and yourself. As "WE" are paying the price for your securing your prestigious "chair" in the House Ways and Means Committee.

ps:  I'm posting this on the internet; and I'm emailing it to my local group members as well.   Referring to Obama, back in 2009, Rush Limbaugh once said:  "I hope he fails".  I hope the same for you in the next election.  

You'll be RELIEVED to know that this will be my last contact (what "contact"?!) w/ you.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
