It Can Be Done! Obamatrade Almost Loses on a Procedural Vote!

Breitbart is reporting tonight that the procedural vote advancing Obamatrade to Friday’s showdown was nearly lost – the rule nearly lost on a 217-212 vote.

Some key points:

  • 34 conservatives voted NO on the rule.  (Rep. Dave Brat voted against the rule; Rep. Morgan Griffith did too)
  • 8 Dems voted for the rule
  • Several other Republicans voted FOR the rule but may vote NO Friday.

It will be close Friday.  Keep calling Congress – it is being heard (emphasis added):

Glyn Wright, the executive director of Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum, tells Breitbart News:

We are grateful to the 34 Republicans bold enough to vote NO on the rule. It was a tough vote for many, but a bold statement about the disgraceful policy and process. We hope that more members will show this kind of courage tomorrow. I am told by many Members of Congress that the calls from constituents against the bill are running 20:1. We will see tomorrow who is listening to their constituents and who is beholden to big business and leadership.

We’ll see who stands for sovereignty and the Constitution.  It doesn’t matter what pork you bring back to your district – you should be primaried if you are a Republican and vote for Obamatrade.

Read this:

It still remains to be seen what happens next, but one House Republican aide from an office that’s publicly undecided, voted for the rule but is unlikely to support Obamatrade on final passage told Breitbart News that if the outside pressure from grassroots and conservative media continues until the final vote, it’s likely Obamatrade will die on the floor on Friday.

“My sense is the same [that there’s blood in the water everywhere around this deal],” the aide said. “They won’t stop till they have the votes. In reality this is Barack Obama’s fault. He’s never been good at politicking or leadership for that matter so the root of why this will fail is all on him – and the last 6 years of his presidency.”

Pray and if your Virginia GOP Congressman is not named Griffith or Brat, call them tonight or tomorrow!  If your name begins with A-Z call tonight and if your name begins with A-Z call tomorrow!  (A nod and thanks to a great patriot Sue Long)

    The DUPLICITOUS Rob Wittman switched his vote at the last minute after promising that he didn’t support TPA. He’s Boehner’s boy through and through.

    • Gene Lefty says:

      The Honorable Congressman Rob Wittman voted NAY to both trade bills in the U.S. House yesterday, along with Brat and Griffith.

      Congressman Wittman is as good as it gets in Washington. I think that you owe the good Congressman an apology.

      Are you man enough to admit that you are wrong and apologize?

    “Men without Chest” as CS Lewis describes them are always willing sellout.
    30 Pieces of Silver is what it takes! They too will regret their actions if they sellout.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
