Conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus have a strategy to actually kill President Barack Obama’s nuclear arms deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran—rather than “play fight” against it, as GOP leadership wants to do.
“House Freedom Caucus members are poised to demand Wednesday that Republican leaders delay a vote on an Iran disapproval resolution until the White House has revealed all ‘side deals’ with Iran,” Roll Call’s Matt Fuller wrote late Tuesday. “And if GOP leaders don’t delay the Iran disapproval resolution, HFC members are discussing voting down the rule for the resolution on Wednesday.”
Fuller quotes Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC)detailing the newly emerging strategy.
Meadows is the House Freedom Caucus member who has put forward a resolution containing a motion to vacate the chair—a fancy term for throwing House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) out. The strategy centers around the fact that President Obama has not followed the law with regard to the Iran deal, specifically a bill that was signed into law from Sens. Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) and Ben Cardin (D-MD) and therefore the deal is no good.
“I think the plan is just to say that there’s a law on Corker-Cardin, it hasn’t been followed, we can’t ignore it, so to continue on with a vote in light of the administration not adhering to the law would be erroneous and really usurp the authority of Congress,” Meadows told Roll Call.
ALL ARE GOOD !! WOULD LIKE TO SEE TRUMP AT THE HELM AND ALL OUTHER IN KEY POSITIONS !!
boehner is a POS along with his brother in the rainbow house!
I am afraid that Boehner will appeal to the Democrats - because they can vote too- and the Democrats will vote to let him keep his leadership position, because Boehner has voted with the Democrats. Pelousy will get the deme to rally around Boehner, because they know that if a conservative gets the position, their dreams of Communist America may come to a halt.. And they want to keep their cushy jobs. They have it so good- they vote themselves raises, wreck the country (and make us taxpayers pay for our own destruction!)
Still, it is worth the effort. I commend Meadows for his effort.
I PRAY EVERYDAY THAT OHIO WAKES UP AND VOTES THIS GAS BAG PIECE OF SH## OUT OF OFFICE IT IS IN OHIO'S HANDS
