Dear Garth Kuhnhein,
Over the last couple of weeks the failed leadership of the Republican party has taken full stage with the exposure of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as a liar on the Senate floor and the challenge to the leadership of John Boehner as a the Speaker of the House of Representatives. The challenges to the Republican leadership are welcomed and encouraged by voters that are fed up with empty promises. The press is on the side of the establishment and downplays the importance of the challenge to Boehner's leadership. In this Cincinnati Enquirer article it says the resolution to vacate the chair is, "seen as largely symbolic by many political experts." But looking behind the smoke screen of the "political experts" what is the possibility of the resolution passing and Boehner being removed?
First let's look at the timing of the resolution. It occurred just prior to the August recess. Speaker Boehner tried to call the bill to the floor for a vote and kill the resolution before the Representatives went home for the August recess but he was unsuccessful. This alone shows a weakness as now the resolution calling for the removal of Boehner is alive and open for discussion when YOUR representative is home for recess and YOU have access to them. Now is the time to tell your representative that it is time for a change in Republican leadership. We need a change for the better, a change that will unleash the power of liberty.
Second, lets look at how this resolution can come to the floor for a vote. The press is trying to squelch the oppositon to Boehner and makes a big deal about it being sent to a committee to die. However if Rep. Meadows makes a motion to Vacate the Chair from the floor a vote must be taken within 48 hours. Heritage Action provides a good analysis of how this works in the PDF attached at the bottom of this email. So the answer is that if enough Representatives get their ears burnt about the failed Republican leadership and they tell Rep. Meadows they will support him then Meadows can force a vote. The original resolution filed by Meadows is our call to ACTION. It is our challenge, our signal to action to tell our representatives that a change in leadership is needed. Third, how many votes, how many Representatives are needed to force Boehner out and Vacate the Chair? Assuming all Democrats would vote against Boehner it only takes 30 Republican votes to oust Boehner and every Representative voted. The last challenge to Boehner's leadership fell short by five votes.
Fourth, what groups are supporting the removal of Boehner? FreedomWorks Backs House Effort to Remove Boehner Speakership and CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“Every time defenders of freedom need a leader, John Boehner has failed us. It’s time to remove Boehner from the speakership before it’s too late to pass bold reforms. Under his speakership, the Republican-controlled House has allowed taxes and spending to increase and their agenda revolves more about pleasing lobbyists than standing on principle. It’s time to end the Boehner Blunder.”
Now is the time to contact your Representative, express your frustration with Republican leadership and tell them you have their back and will support them in their vote to Vacate the Chair! If all of our Kentucky Representatives will vote with Thomas Massie the change we need can start. If Thomas Massie is your Representative....call him and say keep up the good work!
Call your Rep. Support the effort to VACATE THE CHAIR!

Most people in the country know nothing about this. This is a government program that is not only a waste of taxpayer money it is a threat to our country. It is happening in Kentucky and we are learning more about it every day. The combined Tea meeting 7pm, September 24 will have a presentation on this very important topic. Please plan on attending and invite your local elected official to attend. Click here for a video to learn more, or click here to go to the Refugee Resettlement Watch website.
The Refugee Resettlement program is alive and flourishing in Louisville. If you live in and around Louisville you need to educate yourself about what it happening.

KENTON COUNTY TAX INCREASE!
Did you know that the Kenton County Fiscal Court approved the county budget a 4% increase in property taxes? This despite the fact that Kenton County now has over $28 million dollars in surplus that represents over 35% of the annual operating budget!
The Fiscal Court has another vote in September to set the actual tax rate. Yes this tax increase can be stopped! Commissioner Beth Sewell and Commissioner Joe Nienaber ran for office and asked for our votes based on their fiscal responsibility. Call them and tell them to stop the spending...stop the additional tax!
Commissioner Jon Draud was the lone vote against this tax increase. This is what Commissioner Draud had to say about the tax increase,
"It's not appropriate to make a 4% increase with a 35% reserve," Draud said during the meeting in Independence. The county has $28 million in reserves.... River City News, Wednesday, June 10, 2015
What can you do? Send the Kenton County Commissioners a letter, call them and attend a Fiscal Court meeting and make your voice heard. Next Kenton County Fiscal Court meeting, Tuesday, July 28th, 2015 7:00PM Kenton County Courthouse 303 Court Street 3rd Floor Covington, Ky. 41011
NO ADDTIONAL TAX.. STOP THE SPENDING
