Dear Sen. Pilcher-Cook,
Oh Mary….what a difficult time for you. I had to reach out when I heard the news. You were removed, pulled, yanked or as they say given the old heave-ho as chairwoman from the Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee.
Kansas Sen. Mary Pilcher-Cook, a Shawnee Republican, was removed from a committee chairmanship Friday for adding an Obamacare amendment to an unrelated bill, a violation of Senate rules, said Senate President Susan Wagle.
Pilcher-Cook’s amendment would have forced a Senate vote on Medicaid expansion, which she opposes.
We can’t have the Senate voting to expand Medicaid so Wagle just shoved your right off that committee to send a message.
Your response took her to task.
“Instead of allowing members to stand on principle and vote their conscience, she seeks to push conservative principles aside and push her own political agenda,” she said in a statement.
That’s right Mary! How dare she push her own political agenda. Oh the outrage. Kansas citizens don’t have time for this type of political theater. We need politicians such as yourself who don’t do such things and never push their own political agendas.
