In November of 2010, Americans sent a clear message to Washington D.C. to repeal Obamacare and reduce spending. Upon the transfer of power in January of 2011, you gave a press conference in which you stated you had heard the American people loud and clear, and you vowed to repeal Obamacare and "significantly" reduce spending. We understand that since the GOP only has control of 1/3 of government, the repeal of Obamacare could not happen. The Senate flatly disregarded our message and voted to not repeal. During BOTH debt-ceiling increase debates, you seemed to give in rather quickly to Democrats regarding spending cuts that would take effect now. As of today, the repeal of Obamacare has not been brought up again, and Americans are still waiting for "significant" spending cuts.
So here is my question:
Mr. Speaker, given that Americans witnessed your inability to stand firm on spending cuts during the debt-ceiling debate, will you do what the American people asked and expect you to do?
