Fwd: A REAL BETRAYAL from Rep. Rob Wittman on TPA & TAA

Friends - Once again Congressman Rob Wittman has deceived us! Please CALL NOW to tell Rob to VOTE NO on trade agreement issues today!  Yesterday he changed his vote on bills he said he would vote AGAINST! [See voting here:]  Please pick up your phone and tell Congressman Wittman to keep his word and vote AGAINST all parts of the "ill-conceived" trade agreements!

Please read the email below, Sent to me at 8:15 p.m. Thurs. night:

You need to flood the phone lines and let Rep. Wittman know that he showed his real colors today.  This is very disappointing:

"McHenry found Rep.
Rob Wittman on a corner aisle and somehow convinced the Virginia Republican to flip his vote. When McHenry and Wittman finished their conversation, Wittman got up from his seat, walked to the speaker's dais shaking his head, and eventually took a green card to switch to a yes on the rule."
Roll Call June 12, 2015  "Trade Rule Passes Despite Conservative Mutiny"
Sent: Thursday, June 11, 2015 5:40 PM
Subject: NO to TPA, TAA, EX-Im, & NO Subsidies for Obama Care
Congressman Rob Wittman:
Two weeks ago on Wed. May 27th at a Lancaster dinner event, you looked me straight in the eyes and told me you opposed the ill conceived Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for this President to be granted "fast track" authority to negotiate trade agreements for our country.  You also stated, looking me in the eyes, that you were also opposed to the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA). I took you at your word, as well, when you said you would not allow the Ex-Im Bank to be re-authorized.  I wrote to tell you we were proud of your stands on these issues. None of these are worthy of passage.
However, we again hear that,  guess who,  Speaker Boehner, is pressuring House members to vote for procedures and amendments to support this legislation that Pelosi and Obama want our Congress to approve "so we can all find out what's in the bill!"
Your constituents are fed up with this going along with the RINOS  and the Progressives, just to get further along down the 'road to serfdom.'  And how is that "We'll repeal and defund Obama Care" promise coming?  We also understand some of the House Republicans are not brave enough to stand up and let the Supreme Court (King vs. Burwell) to strike a devastating blow to Obamacare, but have plans to subsidize it.  We can not afford this! 
At that Wed. May 27 event, you told the crowd that the Republicans were prepared with health care alternatives, including one from retired Rep. Tom Price of GA. Well thought out alternatives that eliminate the mandates and reduce the cost of health care  would allow coverage for what people want, not what government dictates. Any law that is passed should extend to all citizens, with no exclusions. Opportunity for All- Favoritism to None!
We continue to watch how you are voting.
Lyn Neira,
Lancaster County


Opportunity for ALL, favoritism for NONE!
