John Conyers Appreciation Thread

Just because. And because anyone who was on Nixon's Enemies list is a national treasure.





I love you! I loved you during the Clinton Impeachment! I loved you during Grand Theft Election Ohio! I loved you during Downing Street Memos! I love you still! You are the best in Congress and you are MY Congressman, even though I live in Texas. So, you better stay in Congress and stay vocal for all of, especially those of us who don't have anyone who speaks for us.

3. Here's my favorite thing about Conyers:

The United States National Health Care Act, or the Expanded and Improved Medicare for All Act (H.R. 676), is a bill introduced in the United States House of Representatives by Representative John Conyers (D-MI).[1] The bill had 88 cosponsors in 2009. The act would establish a universal single-payer health care system in the United States, the rough equivalent of Canada's Medicare, the United Kingdom's National Health Service, and Taiwan's Bureau of National Health Insurance, among other examples. Under a single-payer system, all medical care would be paid for by the Government of the United States, ending the need for private health insurance and premiums, and probably recasting private insurance companies as providing purely supplemental coverage, to be used when non-essential care is sought.

4. He wanted to impeach Bush and Cheney.

When 90-percent thought they were the real thing, post 9/11, he tried to do the right thing. Too bad so many new Democrats didn't listen to him.

7. During some rough times we could count on Rep Conyers to stand up for freedom.

 

Hold a hearing in a cloak room. You go Rep Conyers. And frack those that have tried to silence you.

10. Why the Hell did Conyers fuck up the ballot petition in the first place?

 

He's been in the house for almost 50 years. I would think he would have staff who knew the ballot procedure.
