Arizona Citizens Supporting Honest Representative Government At All Levels
After a group of Republicans nearly scuttled the Obama trade effort last week by voting against a procedural rule dictating the debate terms for the trade bill, House leadership is pushing back.
National Journal reports that House leadership has removed three of the dissenting members from the GOP whip team.
The repercussions come as House Republicans prepare for another procedural vote to bring back Trade Adjustment Assistance — a key portion of the Obama trade effort to pass Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), which would grant the president fast-track authority to negotiate trade deals — as late as July 30.

[Editor: to quote one of our very astute members: "Free trade… right. Because freedom is always crafted in secret by those who stand to benefit most from whatever is being done, and by posting armed guards at the door to make sure no one else sees what’s going on." Think about this. Doesn't this sound more like blackmail or extortion to you?]

Only the Republicans voted for Boehner. );-[
Please note that Representative Paul Gosar did NOT vote for Boehner!
You are right. Good for Gosar.
Right on Barbara! Boehner should have been dumped long ago, but too many have been corrupted already! The problems do not lie in or with Arizonans - although not exactly 100% pure - are so much better than many others.
It's a long hard road we've chosen to be on.
Stick with it.
Why is it always the Republicans who try to cater to the so-called "independents" ... WHO ONCE WERE Republicans? Because they know that catering to Democrats is a lost cause, and the Republicans tell them "I won't hit you again .. I promise" !!
The "promises" of the Republican party MEAN NOTHING, as exemplified by those who vote for Obamatrade and along with Boehner and McConnell. We need change from the INSIDE ... to get rid of RINO's like Robert Graham, McCain, McConnell, Boehner, Flake, Schweikert, and Franks. They all smell like socialist Democrats to me.
If I were Trent Franks, I would consider this a badge of honor.
i agree, i was surprised to see his name on the list
talk about strange bedfellows on this vote!!! LOL
McSally votes with the Dems most of the time..... what a disappointment she is.... no less than I expected but it was sure hard to make the "R"s understand that there is something worse than an Democrat and that is a Repub hat votes with the Dems the majority of the time..... (she is big time beholding to Boehner so don't expect that she will do any different from here on out!)
