A Conservatively Strong GOP house needs a true Republican leader.
A message from your conscience.
PLEASE consider talking to your newly elected rep about one of the most important decisions he/she will make very soon. The Hastert rule being ignored brought us medicaid expansion, and will cost us more in gas taxes very soon. From a Facebook post:
After the shellacking of the Dem Progressive agenda yesterday, it is time for the MIGOP to wake up and change direction. They need to realize that they dodged the bullet and rode the wave of Anti Democrat voter sentiment, NOT a wave of Pro Republican Sentiment.
The MI House republicans could start by electing a new House leader that will not be a rubber stamp for the Guvnerds’ agenda. Rumor is that many of the House Republican caucus want a chance to vote on the Hastert rule. I would challenge Cotter to make a Few Points into a Platform that would Garner him support from many of the incumbents and from most of the Newly minted Freshman.
1. Promise to allow the Caucus to vote on adopting the Hastert rule.
2. Promise to allow Tom Hooker’s heartbeat bill to be put on the floor.
3. Promise to allow ALAC (Rep. Tom Hooker again) to be put on the floor.
4. Promise to not allow Elliot Larsen, and other Legislation that does not have Majority Republican support to see the light of day.
We already face too much danger from the Lame Duck session. We can expect many of those term limited out, Jase Bolger, randy Randy Richardville, Haveman, and others seeking future appointments and Government job opportunities, to attempt to curry favor with the Guvnerd, and special interests.
A strong stand now would garner support, and help place those currently seated on notice that Business as usual will not be part of the agenda after Jan 1.
Call your newly elected Rep and tell them to support Kevin Cotter for speaker.
