Ocala, Florida — A town meeting summed up in a few short important words.
Like many Americans, United States Congressman Ted Yoho (Republican) wants President Obama gone. To be more precise, Yoho wants Obama impeached.
During a town meeting tonight, March 17, 2014, Yoho was quite candid about his feelings toward Obama and what the mediocre president has done for the United States of America and residents in his district.
He said Obama does not enforce laws passed by congress.
Yoho said Republicans in Washington don’t have the stomach to impeach Obama. The tone of Yoho’s voice just fell short of calling Washington spineless.
Yoho accused John Boehner of not following through with bills proposed by other congressman to sue Obama, stating Boehner and other Republicans don’t want to rock the boat, so to speak. Yoho said they are not pressing forward because they are too busy trying to get elected in November.
Someone asked Yoho about the situation in the Ukraine and Yoho’s response was surprising.
Yoho said, It was Obama’s weakness as a leader that helped foster Russia’s bold intervention on the Crimean peninsula.
Yoho said, take a look at what is going on with the Ukraine, Iran and Syria. He said, “We have never been challenged like this. People are becoming emboldened against America, it is time we come together as Americans.”
Yoho also touched on “Obamacare.”
Yoho said, “The Supreme Court said the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land. For us that want to get rid of it, it is the law of the land in its entirety. You cannot pass the law and only implement the part you want to implement. It’s unconstitutional.”
Yoho said the administration has changed several parts of the law, which were not authorized in the original implementation of “Obamacare.”
Yoho also wants to see the IRS tax code rewritten, and Americans may soon see a plan put into place that could do just that. Yoho did not go into great detail with the plans during the meeting.
Yoho said, “Americas problems are not going to be solved in Washington, they are going to be solved at the local diner and at the coffee shop. “
Referring to the administration, Yoho said,“If people are breaking our laws, trampling up the Constitution, how long do you put up with that?”
“Are we not a country of laws?”
Whether it be a political stunt, or sincerity, Yoho has certainly gained a lot of respect from Floridians for having the courage to stand up to the Obama Administration, and calling it as he sees it.
