To: Rep. Mark Meadows (NC-11) and The United States House of Representatives
Fire Mark Meadows
Mark Meadows has been a force of drama, gridlock and partisanship since he entered the House in 2013. He recently filed an unjust motion to oust Speaker Boehner from his position, and it's time to hold Mr. Meadows accountable.
Why is this important?
Recently, Congressman Mark Meadows has filed a motion within the House of Representatives for Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) to vacate his speakership. Meadows accused Boehner of bypassing Congress, creating a series of crises to force votes on legislation and punishing his members. The grounds of that resolution are far fetched and ridiculous. Speaker Boehner did not create a series of crises to force votes, nor did he ever bypass Congress. Speaker Boehner has a political role to direct his members, and he has the power to appoint or remove members to committee spots, chairmanships, etc. Meadows was a victim of Boehner's punishments, as he lost his Chairmanship of the Subcommittee on Government Operations. Meadows ultimately got his chairmanship back, but not even that has satisfied Meadows. Since entering Congress in 2013, Meadows has been a contributing force of intense partisanship and gridlock, and was a major contributor to the 2013 Government Shutdown. Meadows has complained about the way he was treated by the Speaker, but he should wonder why he was punished. It appears everything must fit his rigid and far right ideology, and if something doesn't fit it, it's automatically bad. Meadows has states that he's doing this to "cause a discussion", perhaps we should start a discussion about Mr. Meadows. By signing this petition, you're asking Mark Meadows to resign from the 114th Congress. Our elected leaders should be more then drama queens and ideologues. I think the people of North Carolina's 11th District, The House of Representatives and the United States of America deserve more then Mark Meadows's extreme partisanship.
