Five Reasons to Vote Out Mississippi Rep Steven Palazzo
1. He stands firmly on the wrong side of history.
2. Displaced people who’ve lost everything? Yes please!
3. Broken record is broken.
4. He’s anti-American Worker
- He voted YES on the Preventing Greater Uncertainty in Labor-Management Relations Act. A bill specifically written to not only make it more difficult for unions to organize but to also allow companies to legally fire anyone who complains about inhumane working conditions.
5. Pro- Domestic and Sexual Violence? Yep.
Five Reasons to Vote Out Arkansas Rep Eric “Rick” Crawford
1. He’s pro-hitting children with cars.
- Okay, okay no he’s not. Well, at least, I don’t think he is? But he did vote against Safe Routes to School for children walking and riding bikes to school.
2. He hangs out with…well, the worst people.
- No, this one isn’t an overstatement. With love for both The Tea Party and Ted Cruz, it’s hard to take this guy seriously.
3. He’s a fan of flushing tax payer money down the drain.
- He started this year off with co-sponsoring, yet another, anti-Affordable Care Act “ObamaCare” bill. The HR 3811 - Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014, which I personally refer to as the “Scare tactic bill,” has a sole purpose of scaring anyone who signs up for the ACA. If and when your personal information gets stolen, they’ll let you know.
4. Gay Marriage an American value?
5. Violence + Women? Sure, why not?
Five Reasons to Vote Out Louisiana Rep Steve Scalise
1. Well that’s a solid argument.
2. Solid arguments are this guy’s thing, eh?
3. American by birth? Nope.
- Just because Steve Scalise got his citizenship through birth doesn’t mean he believes others should.
4. You should fight for your country….unless you’re gay.
5. Well, violence isn’t that bad, amirite?

Five Reasons to Vote Out Texas Rep Kenny Marchant
1. My constituents don’t want it. Yeah, that’s it!
2. Government shutdown?
- Rated 0% by the National Education Association which is a bit disconcerting when you realize that he’s also a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce as well as the subcommittee Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education
4. Civile Rights? No thank you.
5. No surprises here.
Five Reasons to Vote Out Wisconsin Rep Reid Ribble
1. He leans heavily on the “It’s Obama’s fault” lie.
2. If he can’t blame Obama, he blames “Obamacare.”
3. He wants what now?
- He called for resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius because…wait for it…wait for it…the federal health care website had glitches.
4. Social Security? Yes, that’s a good bargaining chip.
5. This freakin’ guy…
Five Reasons to Vote Out Alabama Rep Martha Roby
Special: Vote Edition
1. A vote that wasted tax payer money
- Voted YES on HR 7- No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (This was nothing more than political peacocking. There is no Federal Funding going toward Abortion, therefore, this bill as well as the voting on this bill, were completely unnecessary)
2. Business as usual
- Voted YES on HR 3362- Exchange Information Disclosure Act (Yet another bill about the Adorable Care Act “ObamaCare.” This bill was used as a scare tactic, telling people that if/when they signed up, their personal information MIGHT be compromised but hey, if it is, we’ll tell you)
3. Second verse, same as the first
- Remember that time you read #2 and found out that she voted YES on a bill simply to scare people away from signing up for the Affordable Care act? Well, that wasn’t the first time. She voted YES on HR 3811-Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014 (Does it sound similar to the one directly above? That’s because it’s almost identical. More wasted time, tax payer money and political peacocking)
4. Anti-Constitution? Yep.
- Voted NO on H Amdt 498 - Specifies That Certain Fees Do Not Limit the Right to Petition (The sole purpose of this amendment was to cap petition fees so that anyone could legally petition. A right that is protected by the Constitution of the United States of America but is now being challenged and made more difficult with fees)
5. Okay then…
Five Reasons to Vote Out South Carolina Rep Mick Mulvaney
1. Um…it was a typo? That’s believable, right?
- When discussing why he voted against the bipartisan debt deal during the government shut down, he listed funding for the “Lords Resistance Army” as one of the pieces of “Pork” that had been added to the bill. But…um…after being pressed on the matter…it was decided that it was…um…just a big ole typo.
2. He legislates against working Americans.
- The infamous, “Working Families Flexability Act of 2013" Bill that, if passed, would have rendered overtime pay a thing of the past, was not only something Rep Mulvaney supported but was actually a co-sponsor on the bill.
3. On the other hand…
- He’s a big fan of protecting the bonuses of CEO’s and more to the point, keeping those bonuses quiet.
4. This isn’t a great minority to be in, buddy.
- He was one of the few (On either side of the isle) who voted NO on bill HR 1960 - Authorizes Military Sexual Assault Victims to Decide who Determines Their Case (This is one of the few bills that pretty much lives up to it’s name…so yeah, he voted against it)
5. Oh of course he did…
Five Reasons to Vote Out Oklahoma Rep Markwayne Mullin
1. He doesn’t know…well, anything.
- While it would be disappointing, though not surprising, to find that many Americans don’t know that there are 3 branches of government, it’s far more concerning when someone who works within one of those branches doesn’t know.
2. Know stuff, he doesn’t.
- While defending the Duck Dynasty star, he stated that the comments made were “Protected by our Constitution.” Which technically, is true. Except, the Duck Dynasty star was never being held or even questioned by the Government. Since the “Freedom of Speech” portion of this nation’s Constitution protects our speech from the government stopping us from saying something and not, as Rep Mullin suggests, public backlash or the potential to lose your reality show.
3. What? No, really. WHAT?
- According to Rep Mullin, if you’re physically fit, you have no business on Food Stamps.
4. Hypocrisy? Who him? Noooooooo!
- While being proudly anti-food stamps and often speaking about how our government needs to stop giving “Hand outs” he seems to be suffering from a bit of memory loss.
5. Wait, why did you vote against it again?
- His explanation for voting NO on the Violence Against Women Act is that it had language about protecting gay, lesbian and transgendered victims (How dare THOSE people expect to not be abused) but when taking a closer look, you’ll see that he also voted NO on the original bill. The one that didn’t include the “Offending” language. His vote was even more disturbing as this bill also included much needed protection for Native women. As he, himself, is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, he is well aware of the extreme physical and sexual abuse being inflicted on Native people, specifically Native women. He tried to back paddle by pointing out that he’d supported a bill that specifically protected Native women (H.R. 780) but this bill has been sitting in Committee for over 2 years and is not expected to pass.
Five Reasons to Vote Out Pennsylvania Rep Scott Perry
1. Partisanship is wrong but ya know, not.
- In an interview with Chris Matthews, Representative Perry said, “This is a negotiation by an intractable president who will negotiate with Syria, who will negotiate with Putin, who will negotiate with Iran but won’t negotiate with 50 percent of his countrymen.” Then, in the same interview questioned not just Chris Matthews but all Democrats ability and/or willingness to read the discussed bill. He first stated that he was “Surprised” that Chris read the bill and then went on to say, “You know, most Democrats, as a matter of fact, I’m surprised any Democrats read the bill.”
2. If something he doesn’t like works, he breaks it.
- In his bill, H.R. 3755: Union Tax Fairness Act of 2013, the goal is to stop the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) from waiving certain fees for those that can’t afford it.
3. He votes against working Americans.
4. When in doubt, scare.
- Voted YES on the HR 3811 - Health Exchange Security and Transparency Act of 2014 bill. The sole purpose of which is to say that WHEN your personal information is stolen through signing up for the Affordable Care Act you’ll be notified within 2 days.
5. Women? He loves them. Well, maybe “Love” is the wrong word.
- He voted NO on the Re-Authorization of the Violence Against Women Act but then…
- Gave a speech asking, “Who will speak for underprivileged women?"
