So, just how am I to the right of Virginia Foxx? For starters, I would have signed the Mulvaney letter vowing to defund Planned Parenthood. I issued a challenge to Foxx to sign it. Our Republican controlled House of Representatives has had control of the purse strings since the 2010 election and they have continued to fund Planned Parenthood, Obamacare and Obama's amnesty. I would never have told constituents that Ted Cruz was brainwashing people during the defund Obamacare fight. I would have been standing shoulder to shoulder with Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to defund Obamacare. See my blog post about our visit to Virginia Foxx's office back in 2013 here.
Why is it time for Virginia Foxx to go? She's a member of the failed leadership that has failed to stop Barack Obama's liberal agenda. A leadership that has chosen to ignore the will of the people!
Here is a partial list of the reasons I have chosen to primary her:
*She is a six-term incumbent career politician who is a member of leadership
* She voted to fund Obama's amnesty twice. The first time outright when she voted for the $1.1 trillion spending bill that funded it. Second time when she voted to move the senate amendment to HR 240 to the floor for a vote. If you don't support Obama's amnesty, you try to stop it at every step along the way.
*She supports NSA spying and voted for additional measures like CISPA.
*She voted for Boehner against our will, continued to support him and was standing at his side when he resigned. She also voted against removing Boehner as speaker.
*She voted to re-authorize the failed Bush-era NCLB that gave rise to common core (it has been sitting in the Senate since this summer). Remember that we pressured the House to pull HR5 last fall, then they passed it when we weren't looking this summer.
*She refused to sign the Mulvaney letter vowing to defund Planned Parenthood.
*She voted to fund Obamacare and PP since becoming a member of leadership in 2010.
*She voted for TPA & also voted yes on HR 2146 that gave fast track authority for TPP.
*She voted for H.R. 2 -healthcare bill that will increase our nations debt by $500 billion. A prime example of back room deal between Boehner/Pelosi and buying votes.
