Obviously the action of the 189 legislators to vote on a bill was constitutional, just as it was constitutional of the 184 legislators who opposed it to vote against it. Whether the bill itself is constitutional is irrelevant for the legal action sought against the 189 representatives. So why are these three representatives seeking the removal of 189 legislators? What precedent do they have to remove someone based on how they voted on a bill?

These three individuals did not elect 189 representatives. The people did. It is disrespectful to the people of New Hampshire to try to override their votes because they disagree on the passage of the bill.
