Notice Of Termination

I believe every single Republican in the House of Representatives with the exception of the 20 who voted their conscience and said “no” to the healthcare bill, should be served with a termination of employment notice, effective immediately. Below is a sample of such a notice:


To:        Paul Ryan, former Speaker of the House

From:  We The People of the United States of America

Date:   04 May 2017

Re:       Termination of your employment


You are being given until 5:00 p.m. to remove any and all personal items from the Capitol Building and any other offices you may have occupied as a U.S. Representative.  Your final pay will be forwarded to you by the end of the month.

The reason for this termination is that you have failed to do your job.  You failed to put the best interests of the nation and its citizens above your own personal interest and that of your co-worker, Donald Trump.  You were hired to represent the people in your district, and instead you just voted for legislation that would very likely cause pain, suffering, financial devastation, and ultimately death to a vast majority of those people.  As your employers, we deem your behaviour to be unacceptable, and therefore your termination is effective immediately.

Please do not disgrace yourself in future job endeavors by requesting that we provide you with an employment reference, because if you do, we will be completely honest and “tell it like it is”, that you were without good morals, without conscience, and did not act honestly nor with integrity.

One final point.  Your health insurance will terminate at midnight on 31 May 2017.  A representative from Human Resources will contact you within ten (10) business days regarding your COBRA options.

Sincerely,

We. The. People


Note that there were 20 Republican members who voted their conscience and are excluded from this memo.  One abstained, and may be put on probation.  To find out how each representative voted, click here.  My initial intent was to send an actual hard-copy, snail mail copy of this ‘memo’ to each of the 217 who voted ‘yes’, until I realized that would cost me $106.33 in postage alone.  Not being wealthy, and having better things to do with my money, I have decided to email them a copy.  I hope many will get on this bandwagon and at least let their representatives know they will not have a job after November 2018.  This utter disregard for our well-being is an abomination not to be tolerated.  The simplest e-mail form I have found, for those who are interested, is here.

  1. Dear Jill,
    Your termination letter is spot on perfect. I will print this letter and I will send it to all republicans who voted against it. It would be worth every penny. I am presuming that I have your permission. Let me know soon, if this is not the case.
    Hugs, Gronda

  2. Jill, I posted this on your reblog. This is germane to your point. Keith

    To further indicate that is all about style than substance, and this President cares little about the details, several Republican Congressional representatives did not like the AHCA bill they voted for per The Washington Post. They felt pressured to get Trump a win in the House. These same folks know the Senate will alter it significantly (which the GOP Senate leadership as already said) and it may not ever survive a reconciliation process. Yet, they needed to pass something.

    The CBO will likely not be kind to this bill as they were the first one. These guys are running victory laps over screwing over 24 million Americans out of healthcare. To be frank, not waiting on the CBO scoring and voting for something only for political reasons is extremely poor stewardship and malfeasance in some respects. That is this Independent voter’s opinion. But, what do I know, I just try to be a voice for those who rarely have a place at the table and certainly not this table

    • Well, I don’t know if the republicans in the Senate will necessarily show more courage, but with the bill requiring 60% in the Senate, it will not likely pass as it stands now. I understand they will be ‘modifying’ it before sending it to the Senate, so who knows what that will amount to. Sigh.

    • Yes, it must pass BOTH House and Senate. If it goes to the Senate “as is”, it does not stand a chance of passing, as it would require 60 ‘yes’ votes. There are 48 Democrats who would all vote ‘nay’, and 52 Republicans in the Senate. However, I am given to understand that they will be making some major modifications to the bill before it goes to the Senate, in an attempt to make it more palatable to Democrats. Quite frankly, I do not believe there is much they can do that will get it through the Senate, but I could be wrong. Looks like there was a lot of bullying, browbeating, and bribing that went on to get the votes in the House. Sigh.

        • Yes, pretty much. And, if they make modifications in the Senate and it passes, then it has to go back to the House. It will likely be a long process, despite their attempts to push it along quickly. I hope it ends up ‘dead in the water’. 🙂

            • I have serious doubts. Any modifications that would make it more palatable to the Dems in the Senate, and they need at least 8 of them to vote ‘yes’, would then make it hard to pass in the House next time around because of the Freedom Caucus. I think it will die, and eventually they will wise up and start fixing what is wrong with ACA, which is what they should have done to start with. But then, what do I know? 😀

              • You’re my go-to for politics 😀 One thing that hit me was looking at how they want to take Medicaid away from people making $15K. That’s nothing. How do you begrudge someone who barely makes enough to pay rent on a crap place and groceries something to help them get healthcare? It’s just so heartless.

                  And thanks! I’m honoured to be your go-to for politics! 🙂
