Fire Boehner: We Only Need 16 Votes to Depose Boehner
5 years ago

If conservatives want to keep the House and win the Senate, we need to fire John Boehner as speaker of the House. We only need 16 House votes to do it.

As most conservatives know, Boehner and the House GOP Steering Committee decided to purge four conservative House members from their committee. Congressmen Justin Amash and Tim Huelskamp were removed from the House Budget Committee, and Congressmen David Schweikert and Walter Jones were cut from the Financial Services Committee.

Amash, Huelskamp, and Schweikert were targeted because they were too fiscally conservative—all three have voted against Boehner’s debt ceiling hikes. Amash and Huelskamp were the only two GOP votes against House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan’s budget.

Amash explained that vote at yesterday’s Bloggers’ Briefing at the Heritage Foundation, “It’s unacceptable to have unbalanced budgets until 2040.”

Conservative Group Launches Campaign to ‘Depose’ Boehner from Speakership
5 years ago

The backlash against Speaker of the House John Boehner’s removal of several conservative members of Congress from committees continued Wednesday, with one conservative group calling for Republicans to “depose” Boehner from his speakership.

American Majority Action (AMA) is launching a #FireBoehner campaign. If 16 members of the Republican Party abstain from voting for Boehner as speaker in January, he will be one vote shy of the 218 necessary to confirm his speakership.

“Speaker Boehner has been an abysmal failure as speaker, and his latest purge is the nail in the coffin for conservatives,” said Ned Ryun, president and CEO of AMA. “Boehner has neverwon a negation [sic] battle with the White House or Senate — and he’s been nothing short of an embarrassing spokesman for the conservative movement. It’s time for him to go.”

The GOP is getting bashed daily for letting us go off the fiscal's all their fault....I don't know what the answer is.....let obama have whatever he wants so in two years the people will be so upset with the dems and obama that they will vote them out.....or fight to save the rich from being raised taxes so it can save the govt. for 7 or 8 days???

Does anyone think, that any budget cuts that are made will truly decrease the deficit??? obama and the dems will just spend whatever they save from the cuts....that's how it will work.  They say the middle class will not see any tax increases.....are they forgetting obamacaretax????   I think we better start taking "doomsday" serious folks and start preparing!!!
