Local GOP May Censure 4 Legislators

At its meeting Tuesday night (agenda here), the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee will consider a resolution to censure four Kootenai County legislators who voted for the controversial state health exchange, favored by Gov. Butch Otter in response to Obamacare. Here's the resolution that will be considered:

Whereas, the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee (KCRCC) voted overwhelmingly against the establishment of a State Insurance Exchange; and Whereas, several of our elected officials ignored the will of the majority of the KCRCC, and those who attended the KCRCC hosted legislative hall meetings, and voted in favor of the Exchange; therefore Resolved, the KCRCC formally censures Representative Frank Henderson, Representative Luke Malke, Representative Ed Morse, and Senator John Goedde.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Kootenai County Administrative Building, 451 Government Way, Coeur d'Alene.

Question: Am I the only one who considers this action extreme?
