Great Report from FrontPageMag on Pete Hoekstra of Michigan and John Shadegg of Arizona:Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives
The Washington Times | Tuesday, August 19, 2008
Republicans in Congress are staging a historic 21st-century Boston Tea Party on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.On Aug. 1, Speaker Nancy Pelosi – without addressing gas prices that continue to hover near $4 per gallon – adjourned Congress for five weeks, dimmed the lights, turned off the microphones and C-SPAN cameras and attempted to remove the press and visitors from the House chamber.
Republicans refuse to leave the chamber (Go-Team!)because the issue is about much more than gas prices. It is about much more than energy. It is about the U.S. economy, jobs and national security. It is about who we are as a people. (snip)
The Capitol is the People’s House, not the Speaker’s House. (snip)Republicans should continue the 21st-century Boston Tea Party in Washington until Democrat leaders heed the American public’s call to action and allow America to access the significant energy resources we have placed off-limits for purely political reasons.
Not one more barrel of foreign oil. Not one more American laid off because we choose to leave our vast energy resources untapped. And, not one more dollar spent to fund our enemies.
These Radical, Environmentalists must be stopped.
They represent Pelosi and company NOT America!
Contact your Congressmen and let them know you SUPPORT these Great Republican Patriots!
