House Speaker John Boehner's decision to take plum committee assignments away from four conservative Republican lawmakers after they bucked party leaders on key votes isn't going over well with conservative advocacy groups that viewed them as role models

Looks like the Republican party is in it's death throes! This was interesting - I'd love to know ALL the real reasons Boehner did this!

I wonder if Boehner ever imagined he'd be the school monitor to a bunch of petulant children...not that I feel sorry for him.

I think it's already been proven that the tea party was a bad idea. They've done enough damage already. They can be removed from committees, but it's up to the voters to remove them from office! I hope none of them wins another term.

If the Tea Party had stuck to the "taxation without representation" dialog, and spoken truth to power about all the money spent on The Wars, all the subsidies to Big Oil, and taxing the wealthy their "fair share," they might've gained momentum. What they turned into was a nightmare from hell since they were funded by the Kochs and ALEC. Is anyone sensing that the dominoes are falling? Makes my day.
