Congressman Mark Meadows
North Carolina Congressman, Mark Meadows, has filed a House Resolution demanding that John Boehner vacate the Speaker Chair of the US House of Representatives.

Every conservative in this country needs to contact the Capital switchboard, (202) 224-3121, voicing our support of this resolution. We also need to contact the office of Mark Meadows, (202) 225-6401, to assure him that we wholeheartedly support him in this action. Full text of the resolution is below.

114TH CONGRESS
1ST SESSION

H. RES.

Declaring the office of Speaker of the House of Representatives vacant.

Whereas the Speaker of the House of Representatives for the
114th Congress has endeavored to consolidate power and
centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of the
435 Members of Congress and the people they represent;

Whereas the Speaker has, through inaction, caused the power
of Congress to atrophy, thereby making Congress subservient
to the Executive and Judicial branches, diminishing
the voice of the American People;

Whereas the Speaker uses the power of the office to punish
Members who vote according to their conscience instead
of the will of the Speaker;

Whereas the Speaker has intentionally provided for voice
votes on consequential and controversial legislation to be
taken without notice and with few Members present;

Whereas the Speaker uses the legislative calendar to create
crises for the American People, in order to compel Members
to vote for legislation;

Whereas the Speaker does not comply with the spirit of the
rules of the House of Representatives, which provide that
Members shall have three days to review legislation before
voting;

Whereas the Speaker continues to direct the Rules Committee
to limit meaningful amendments, to limit debate
on the House floor, and to subvert a straightforward legislative
process; and

Whereas the House of Representatives, to function effectively
in the service of all citizens of this country, requires the
service of a Speaker who will endeavor to follow an orderly
and inclusive process without imposing his or her
will upon any Member thereof: Now, therefore, be it

1 Resolved, That the office of Speaker of the House of

2 Representatives is hereby declared to be vacant.
