Obama, you may not care about anything but your agenda, but the rest of America is greatly concerned about Sgt, Andrew Tahmooressi and the fact that YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING TO REMEDY HIS SITUATION!
House Republicans, however, will: 
Now some House Republicans are taking action because President Obama won’t, according to a report from Fox News.
Appearing with Greta van Susteren, Montel Williams and Rep. Matt Salmon announced a House subcommittee hearing into Tahmooressi’s situation.
The Marine has been in a Mexican jail since the end of March after crossing into Mexican territory carrying all that he owned in his pickup truck because he was in the process of moving from Florida to Texas. His possessions included three legally-owned firearms that Mexico considers “military grade,” and therefore illegal. Tahmooressi has insisted all along that his border crossing was accidental.
The subcommittee hearing is scheduled for Oct. 1.
“The president has had ample opportunity to pick up the phone and call the president of Mexico,” Salmon said, speaking of his reasons for championing the hearing.
The least we can do is try to get this Marine out of jail. Thank god that someone is finally doing something. OORAH, Sgt, Tahmooressi. We’re coming, brother.
Williams, a 22-year veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps himself, says that Tahmooressi suffers from PTSD as a result of his combat duty and is not getting the treatment he needs from the Mexican government.
“This is about taking care of our soldiers who give us the right to speak out this way,” Williams added.
