I support H.Res. 16 ("Amending the Rules of the House of Representatives to prohibit the consideration of any bill") because... This bill needs to be passed. I personally, am so tired of seeing bills that try to sneak something completely unrelated to the title through. You will have gained my vote by supporting this.

I support H.Res. 16 ("Amending the Rules of the House of Representatives to prohibit the consideration of any bill") because...the practice of sneaking things into bills in order to get them passed even though they would never pass on their own, absolutely has to stop!

I support H.Res. 16 ("Amending the Rules of the House of Representatives to prohibit the consideration of any bill") because...This bill is desperately needed and it is long past due. Please pass H.Res. 16 into law promptly so that the dishonest practice - of slipping special-interest legislation through on the back of other legislation - is no longer tolerated or legal. Taxpayers have had enough of such behavior and will not continue to stand by while our tax dollars are misappropriated. A big thank you to Rep. David Schweikert.

I support H.Res. 16 ("Amending the Rules of the House of Representatives to prohibit the consideration of any bill") because...it would make it easier for congressmen to promote good common sense legislation, instead of voting on something that may have something bad hidden in it's pages.
