Don't Go Wobbly! We need you, Republican Congressmen!
Here’s Your Target List of Wavering Republicans
-- The Legislative Action Center is up and running again
UPDATE on GOA’s site: First, a note about GOA’s Legislative Action Center, which is hosted and managed by Congressional Quarterly. Many of you tried to take action on our alert on Tuesday, but found that the site was not working.
CQ had “fixed” some broken features over the weekend, but apparently, they “fixed things real good” -- it was impossible to send messages to House Reps. Well, CQ has now repaired their mistake, thus making it possible for you to take action on our most recent alert entitled “Obama: I will not negotiate.”
As always, thank you so much for taking action and for letting us know when the site is not running as it should. You guys are our “first responders” in the battle to preserve our liberties, and we rely heavily on you to let us know right away if you are experiencing problems with the Legislative Action Center.
LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: According to The Washington Post (10/1/13), there are now 12 Republicans who are willing to support a “clean” Continuing Resolution.
Translation: They are willing to stab gun owners in the back and to vote with Democrats in funding the ENTIRE government -- including voting to fund the unpopular, anti-gun ObamaCare law.
Will House Speaker John Boehner be able to rein in reluctant Republicans?
1) Scott Rigell (R-VA)
2) Pat Meehan (R-PA)
3) Charlie Dent (R-PA)
4) Peter King (R-NY)
5) Devin Nunes (R-CA)

7) Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA)

12) Lou Barletta (R-PA)
Plus, there are four more who, according to the Post, are on the fence and might be soon voting with the 12 above. They are:
13) Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV)
14) Steve Womack (R-AR)
15) Dennis Ross (R-FL)
16) Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ)
