Impeach and Investigate House Speaker Boehner.

In recent events, House Speaker Boehner has gone from being the cartoon villain of the republican party with the funny name that is pronounced differently than it is spelled, to being a serious threat to our nation. That's why I created a petition on calling for his removal from office. I'd appreciate it if everyone signed it. It goes as follows:

House Speaker John Boehner has repeatedly called vote after vote to defund the Affordable Healthcare Act, wasting millions in taxpayer money in the process. He has recently threatened to shut down the government if he doesn't get his way. This would endanger the lives of every American citizen, because the government would not be able to respond to a national disaster quickly enough.

We call for the immediate impeachment and investigation of Speaker for the House John Boehner for negligence of duty, wasting of Taxpayer Money, and Endangerment of American lives. His actions warrant an investigation into his private life, and who he is receiving funding or "gifts" from.

Impeaching Boehner is even less in the cards than impeaching Obama. The House will never agree to impeach Boehner and the Senate will never agree to impeach Obama. 

If we were to amend the Constitution in some hard-to-imagine day, one of the amendments I'd love to see is the addition of a referendum process whereby the populace could bypass the legislature to propose and ratify laws.

"free healthcare"? how do you figure it's "free"? The doctors and hospitals work for nothing? The money has to come from somewhere.

(to H3xx 2 hours ago)

Yes, Warren, and if you should find yourself without insurance someday, we will see that you get at least basic care. Is there something wrong with that? How do you justify a system that makes rates lower for those who qualify by throwing those who don't under the bus?

But he used the term "free" nothing is for free, the money has to come from somewhere

Warren. There are 313 million people in this country. If we make it so people have the power to prevent disease by seeing the doctor anytime they feel off, instead of going to the doctor only when they're about to die, the the costs will be negligble. Pennies to save a person's life and keep them healthy, instead of thousands to stave off death for a week or two.

Dont get hung up on the word free. Its free at the time of the visit. And incredably cheap if we keep people healthy.
Comment by Warren on September 24, 2013 at 12:48pm

You and Unseen aren't getting my point though

Free government programs are not free

Comment by H3xx on September 24, 2013 at 12:53pm
If they're managed properly, then they're extremely cheap. Your argument is that a few penies isnt free. Ours is that it may as well be.

I agree H3xx. There will be front-loaded costs, but health care costs should go down over time. And since we are as a people getting poorer day by day, this is becoming necessary. Anyway, the way health care costs have been rising over time, considerably faster than inflation, the economists have said that the system is heading for collapse anyway, unless SOMETHING is done. The day would have been on the horizon when only the rich (who don't need insurance as much) would be able to have it.

The Republicans, as Republican thinker Newt Gingrich has observed, only seem able to say "no" and really have little to offer as an alternative. If they have a way to get the uninsured insured, let's hear it.
