House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) joined forces to pass a Social Security ripoff bill -- without allowing the House to actually vote on it!
The full details on what happened are below.
But you must know, we don't have much time to stop this bill in the Senate.
Harry Reid has scheduled this Social Security ripoff bill, HR 4302, for a vote on Monday night.
The bill needs 60 votes to pass.
We need as many Americans as possible to contact the Senate IMMEDIATELY and urge them to reject HR 4302! Tell them to send it back to the House so they can finish working on it!
Republicans and Democrats alike are angry at what happened last week.
Representatives were still working on HR 4302, the so-called "Doc Fix" bill. This is a $180 billion patch to the Medicare system, so that sequester cuts won't go into effect this week.
By all accounts the bill WAS NOT EVEN FINISHED.
HR 4302 had been fast-tracked, so it needed 270 votes to pass in the House.
However, on Thursday, Pelosi and Boehner's lieutenants suspended the rules and held a voice vote on the bill with only a handful of Representatives in the House chamber.
The "Nays" won the voice vote, but the bill was declared to be passed!
"Outrageous," said Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) tweeted, "GOP & Dem leaders rammed it through by 'voice vote' in empty House chamber. Not right."
THE BILL WAS NOT EVEN FINISHED WHEN THEY RAMMED IT THROUGH!
There's no mechanism in the bill to actually PAY for this $180 billion, so the money will have to be robbed from Social Security funds!
Harry Reid needs 60 votes to pass this bill on Monday night. Please tell the Senate to reject this bill and send it back to the House so they can finish it! Boehner, Pelosi and Reid are not allowed to pass bills in the same way that Obama signs his unconstitutional Executive Orders!
"Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips and from the deceitful tongue" of the likes of Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Boehner! (Psalm 120:2)
We either have a representative form of government or we do not, folks. Boehner, Pelosi, Reid and Obama think that they can pass "laws" in this fashion and get away with it.
These four liars have angered almost every Representative and Senator in both parties with this stunt.
But there is still time to stop them! We need 41 Senators to vote NO.
The vote on HR 4302, which will steal from Social Security to pay for Medicare, doesn't take place until Monday night. Send your FaxGrams immediately and urge the Senate to send this UNFINISHED bill back to the House!

Dear Senator Lee:
The House of Representatives did not hold a proper vote on HR 4302, the so-called "Doc Fix" bill. They held a voice vote on the bill with only a handful of Representatives on the floor and the "Nays" won the vote. There was supposed to be a 270-vote threshold to pass it.
The bill was not even finished yet and Representatives were still working on amendments to it. It was rammed through the House in a surprise vote. There is no mechanism in the bill to actually PAY for the "Doc Fix" yet. If you pass it, Congress will once again have to loot the Social Security funds to pay for it.
Since this bill is incomplete and was not properly voted on by the House, you must send it back. If you pass HR 4302, you'll be no better than Obama passing new laws on his own with his "pen."
You must vote NO on the so-called "Doc Fix."
