I have been pretty rough on my Congressman Bill Posey because I too often feel that he does not stand out as a leader among conservatives. He has aligned himself with Boehner too many times for my liking AND he is not prone to support legislation designed to pull back the reins on government before he “has a chance to read the bill.”
Sometimes I feel like I never get a straight answer from his office. They say one thing that sounds good, but then it sounds like there is a walk-back before the discussion is over. That is extrememly disheartening if a clear answer is not given.
I must say that I was beyond happy that Bill Posey voted against Boehner as Speaker of the House. That is one of the most gutsy votes I have seen him take. I am extremely thrilled that he stood up for change in Washington D.C.’s status quo because as noted in a previous post, I am no longer a fan of John Boehner.
So THANKS BILL! Thanks for standing up for change, for risking your position in D.C. by opposing John Boehner. Please know that I have your back and I will stand up for you if Boehner uses thuggary retaliation as retribution for your courageous vote.
I also thank the other four comprising the #FloridaFive of the #24Stood4Us. YOUR courage to work for the 60% who want Boehner ousted is duly noted and will not be forgotten!
