Virginia Senator Webb voted against the repeal of Obamacare yesterday (Feb. 2), and Virginia Senator Mark Warner skipped the vote altogether. The vote count was 47 for repeal and 51 against repeal. If Misters Webb and Warner had followed the will of the people and voted for repeal, the bill would be on the President’s desk. Yes, he would veto it, but wouldn’t that be a grand spectacle.
Warner and Webb have once again thumbed their nose at the people. Every poll that has ever been done on Obamacare has shown that most people did not want it passed in the first place, and most now want it repealed. But Warner and Webb don’t care what we the people want; they care about forcing their extreme left wing agenda on us no matter how we feel about it. They think they know better than we do what is good for us. They think they are our rulers, not our representatives.
We have an opportunity to explain some things to Warner and Webb in 2012 (Webb) and 2014 (Warner). George Allen has announced that he will seek the nomination to run against Webb, and another good candidate will no doubt emerge to take on Warner. You know what to do.
In the meantime, you can call their offices and let them know how you feel:
Senator Mark Warner: 540-857-2676
Senator Jim Webb: 540-772-4236
Yes, it is worth while to give them feedback even though the vote has already happened. They need to hear form you; there is always a next time.
