The U.S. House of Representatives cast a nearly unanimous party line vote today to Fully Fund the Federal government under a continuing resolution, with the exception of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) commonly referred to as Obamacare.
Two intelligent Democrats voted with the Republicans to defund Obamacare, but one DIRC* voted with the Democrats to continue down the road to Socialized Single-Payer Government Controlled Healthcare.
The American people have expressed their overwhelming desire to repeal Obamacare in poll after poll over the last 4 years, but apparently Representative Scott Rigell from Virginia who represents the people of the 2nd Congressional District either has not been listening, or more likely does not give a damn what his constituents want.
In the truest traditions of Democrats like Jim Moran, Rigell abandoned the people who elected him in favor of Democrat policies designed to destroy the greatest health care system in the world, and replace it with a Government Contolled, Single Payer system that every other civilized country in the western world has tried, and are now running away from.
In 2010, Representative Rigell rode into Congress on the Tea Party wave; this quote is from his bio on the web site:
“Scott Rigell (“RIDGE-ull”) was elected to represent Virginia’s Second Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives in November 2010 and is currently serving in his second term. He serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the House Committee on the Budget.
Since taking office in January 2011, Congressman Rigell has made creating jobs, strengthening our military, controlling federal spending, and changing Congress his most urgent priorities.”
Serving on the House Budget Committee would seem to bring some insight into why the rest of the Republicans in the House voted to defund this monstrosity, but obviously Representative Rigell does not see things the same way his Republican colleagues do.
Lately he has been the “go to Republican” on MSNBC and CNN, and he is seen frequently in the company of far left Democrats. Perhaps it is time he leave the Republican Party and follow his true leanings and join the Democrats.
At least the good people of the 2nd District would know where he really stands.
If you are as displeased as I am with what Representative Rigell has done to his constituents and the people of Virginia, you can find his contact information here on his website.
If you are tired of *Democrats in Republican Clothing (DIRC) running as conservatives and then voting like Democrats, contact Representative (and I use this term loosely) Rigell and voice your opinion.
