Seems they pulled this bill off the calendar after I asked for yeas and nays. That's the power of the recorded vote. https://t.co/lvKNdgQtBx— Justin Amash (@justinamash) July 14, 2015

Rep. Justin Amash kills a bill simply by asking for a recorded vote.
Hats off to Rep. Justin Amash! When the trouble making Congressman from Grand Rapids asked for a recorded vote on a measure that would funnel money to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Breast Cancer Research Foundation House leadership folded and pulled the bill. Under the scheme a commemorative coin supporting breast cancer awareness would be minted and the proceeds funneled to Susan G. Inc. Conservative objected to the bill because of the foundation's support for the baby parts dealer Planned Parenthood.
