The Neutering of the Republican Party in Congress



Why in the world would the GOP so completely relinquish their power of the "purse to the purse" to the President and to Ms. Pelosi and Senator Reid in the Congress without any fight for basic party principles in the deliberation over the massive year-end appropriations spending bill introduced this week?

I am very disappointed, frustrated and discouraged with the current state of the Republican Party. Why did we work to help the GOP gain the Senate and increase House membership? We are about to witness today, December 18, 2015, the complete and utter cave-in of the GOP to the Democrat Party perverse progressive agenda of
Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. There has been no apparent change in the actions of Paul Ryan who appears to be a regurgitation of
John Boehner, Boehner 2.0. All talk and no action. The Party surrenders it principles for what reason I do not know. Is it with the avoiding confrontation with the hope of maintaining power and/or the status quo? 

Here is the email I just sent to my two RINO reps in Congress. I don't expect that they will do anything, however.



To:  Senator Rob Portman (R-OH)
        Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH 12)

Re:  Omnibus Appropriations Bill

Please do not vote for the Omnibus Bill today. It funds every major point of the Obama/Democrat Progressive Agenda including:

* ObamaCare
* Syrian Refugee Resettlement Program
* Planned Parenthood
* Obama's Executive Amnesty
