Uprising Against RINO Boehner

It’s good to hear that at least some Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives aren’t going to just roll over and allow a gutless surrender-monkey RINO step into the Speaker position again unchallenged.

From the Daily Caller:

A conservative House aide described the current thinking among those voting against Boehner, similar to the one employed two years ago: To win the speaker’s race, Boehner needs the support of a majority of people present. If everyone in the House votes, that would be 218. The new Republican majority in the House will be 247.

If 20 Republicans vote for someone other than Boehner, under that scenario, the Ohio Republican will not have a majority and the body will have to vote again until someone reaches that threshold.

If this would happen, these conservatives hope Boehner would drop out of the speaker’s race and another Republican candidate would run for speaker.

John Boehner’s “leadership” has been absolutely pathetic.

The U.S. House has “the power of the purse,” i.e. the constitutional authority for originating spending bills in our form of government. This means the U.S. House can set the agenda for how much and how little is spent; it can’t control it (for the Senate has to approve bills originated in the House, and the president has to sign them into law), but it can set the agenda…and then fight for it. Sadly, the U.S. House has largely taken a pass on this role since the Tea Party gave control to the “Republicans” and Boehner four years ago, allowing trillions of dollars of spending with hardly a fight.

Meanwhile, we get liberal proposals and pushes out of the “Republican” controlled House for Leftist agenda items like amnesty for illegal aliens.

Please, contact your representative and ask them to vote against John Boehner for Speaker, and for a real conservative who understands the principles that made America great–and is willing to fight for them.
