Monday evening, the Androscoggin County Republican Party capped off an exciting evening with the overwhelming approval for a pro-resolution. With large turnout due to the Grand Opening of their new Headquarters just prior, there were many people on hand for the vote.
Durham Town Republican Secretary and Maine Tenth Amendment Center Androscoggin County coordinator Jason Greene took the microphone in New Business to introduce a resolution calling upon Governor Paul LePage to recall the Legislature to a special session to nullify Obamacare. Greene was solid with his introduction, getting the crowd pumped up with cheers in opposition to Obamacare. He then included a brief history, both early American and then recent, by discussing the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions and then connecting it to Maine’s leadership on the REAL ID Act. “Because of this, the law is basically gone and is not being enforced” he told the crowd. “We can do the same with Obamacare!”
Following the reading of the resolution, he officially made the motion, seconded by Turner Town Republican Secretary Amanda Christakis and Auburn City Republican Chair and Maine Tea Party founder Pete Harring. With over one hundred people present, both citizens and legislators, the resolution was only opposed by two individuals. It passed, overwhelmingly.
Androscoggin County Republican Committee has taken the lead, a lead hopefully other county committees will follow. If the talk in opposition to Obamacare is genuine, and not simple campaign rhetoric, than this is a no-brainer. The only answer we have left is to nullify!
