Last week Robert Bowtwell posted the Obamacare organization chart. The story has taken a curious turn. When GOP members of Congress began to send the chart to their constituents, the Franking Commission ordered them to stop. In a memo sent Monday to Republicans on the House franking commission, Democrats argue that sending the chart to constituents as official mail would violate House rules because the information is misleading.
While I’m sure that the debate over the future of private healthcare in this country is certainly important, is it neccessary to keep duly elected rpresentatives of the people from communicating with the people? This is the first time I can recall that communications between a member of Congress and a constituent back home have been prevented because the majority didn’t like what was said.
If this is the standard then I have a stack of mailings from David Price the Franking Commission may want to look at.
