Pink Slips for Congress

November 18, 2009 by  

washingtonVoters in Washington are tired of being disappointed regarding their health care and other legislative efforts and have sent out 5 million “pink slips” to the members of Congress.

“These pink slips are a call for fiscally responsible and constitutionally responsible Americans,” said Rep. Steve King of Iowa.

The pink slips are a symbol of job dismissal. With Rep. Trent Franks, R-Arizona, saying members need to vote the will of the people or be fired in the next election.

Franks stood in front of plasterboards with dozens of the pink pieces of paper which had been attached, where he told reporters, “You are looking at just a sample of the 5 million pink slips that Americans have sent to Congress.”

Those Americans, he said, are “people who are saying to members of Congress that ‘we are fed up with the absolute out-of-control spending, and we are going to respond and do what we can to take our country back.’ ”

They dont mention which political party are being targeted as part of the campaign protest.

Although the website WorldNetDaily may hold some answers as in their online store for just $30 you can order to have one ( a “notice” ) delivered to every member of Congress.

The notices say lawmakers should oppose “government health care”, “cap and trade”, “hate crimes” and “any more spending”.

This campaign started in September and a commercial firm hired by the website delivers the “notices”.

World Net Daily, also offers such things as the online sale of a bumper sticker that says “You lie!” The words have become a slogan against a range of Democratic issues, popularized after an outburst in September by Republican Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina during a presidential speech about health care.
