Leonard Lance must go!

Author: Rory B. Bellows

Even mainstream Republicans are realizing the farce that is Leonard Lance’s congressional career. He votes for SCHIP expansion, he votes for the Lily Leadbetter Act, he votes for paid family leave and now he votes for the Cap and Rape bill. And this guy claims to be a fiscal conservative?

Do you realize this Cap and Rape bill prevents you from selling your house unless it meets federal energy efficiency standards? There is no way Congressman Lance read this bill and his dereliction in voting for a bill that he had not read is grounds for firing him. This bill is a massive federal power grab and was a key component of the Obama agenda. Lance rationale is that we need to make America more like New Jersey. For Congressman Lance to say we need to make America over-taxed, over-regulated and completely hostile to business is bullet in the brain stupid.

I’m usually not for intra-party firing squads but Lance’s “representation” of his district has proved that he is a loyal foot soldier for Chairman Obama. The sad part is, this is a 180 degree for Lance. In the State Senate he was viewed as a reliable vote against outrageous spending and big government boondoogles. If Lance’s first few months are indicative of how he will vote on Chairman Obama’s attempt to socialize medicine, 7th district Republicans will have a hard time makig up their mind as to which primary challenger they are going to vote for in 2010.

    uh, sort of not true.

    under the bill, new and existing buildings – residential and commercial – built prior to 2014 would not be affected by this legislation. that’s right — those homes built prior to 2014 would not be covered by the bill.

    In fact, New Jersey is already moving toward adoption of energy efficiency standards in their state building codes. A bill has passed both the Senate and Assembly.
