A Resolution of the Mohave County Central Committee

Censure of US Senator John McCain


ü  WHEREAS, Senator John McCain unilaterally negotiated with the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to secure Republican votes necessary to pass a number of              controversial Presidential nominees;

ü  WHEREAS, President Obama nominated;

o   Gina McCarthy for head of the Environmental Protection Agency, an environmental bureaucrat who supports anti: job/consumer policies;

o   Richard Corday to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFRB), an unaccountable, unconstitutional agency created by the Dodd-Frank legislation;

o   Thomas Perez as Labor Secretary who has a known record for abusing power as Maryland’s Labor Secretary, handing political appointments to Big-Labor bedfellows;

ü  WHEREAS, Senator McCain provided the votes necessary for the confirmation of the above   nominees;

ü  WHEREAS, Senator McCain’s “deal” was nothing more than capitulation to the Senate Majority Leader, giving him everything he asked for;

ü  WHEREAS, Senator McCain claims in defense of his actions, that they were taken to prevent the Senate Majority Leader from “going nuclear” and illegally breaking the Senate rules to pass these nominees;

ü  WHEREAS, the position of Mohave County Republicans is that Senator McCain should call the Senate Majority Leader’s bluff and force him to get the votes necessary from members of his own party;

ü  WHEREAS, Senator McCain has not acted in a responsible manner during paid working hours and has instead been found to be playing video games, thus disrespecting his colleagues and the     Arizona people he represents;

ü  WHEREAS, Senator McCain has violated the Republican Party principles and the Republican Party Platform by consistently speaking out publicly against his own party members that vote in alignment with the US and Arizona State Constitutions; 

ü  WHEREAS, Senator McCain voted with Senate Democrats on the 2013 Budget Deal that does not uphold Republican principles of fiscal responsibility;

ü  THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that Senator McCain do the following: cease deal-making and negotiations for Republican votes that undermine the Senate Republican Leader and the            republican constituents he serves;

ü  FURTHERMORE, the conduct of Senator McCain, is unbecoming a Member of the United States Senate, weakened the Senate Republican Leader and is hereby strongly rebuked and condemned.
