Tea Party Congressmen Being Thrown Out of Committees: Portends Boehner Will Bow to Obama and Raise Taxes

This is extremely troubling.  

In 2010, We the People spoke with our votes and flipped the House for the Republicans while installing Tea Party candidates.  The “mandate” (as Obama likes to call it) was clear:    Smaller government, budget cuts, and no new taxes.   After all, everyone knows that the TEA in Tea Party stands for Taxed Enough Already.

Well, it seems the Repuglicans haven’t yet got that memo and think they can run roughshod over the Tea Party Congressmen so that they can raise taxes without having to cut any budgets.

Okay.  Go ahead, Boehner.  Play that game.  We the People are gearing up for 2014.  Let’s just wait and see what happens if you keep this crap up, okay?

Conservatives removed from financial committees by GOP House leadership


The fissure between the GOP establishment and Tea Party members in Congress blew wide open Monday evening when conservative members of Congress were suddenly removed from House financial committees.

RedState’s Erick Erickson was the first reliable source to share that conservatives were reportedly being removed from the House’s finance related committees by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio).

Shortly after, Roll Call reported that Rep. David Schweikert of Arizona had been removed from from the Financial Services Committee “for bucking the party line too often.”


Roll Call later added that Walter Jones of North Carolina had also been removed from that committee. Additionally, Reps. Justin Amash of Michigan and Tim Huelkamp of Kansas were removed from the House Budget Committee, which Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is currently chair and will continue to chair in the next Congress.

A press release issued by Huelskamp’s spokeswoman Karen Steward says that the freshman Rep. “was given limited explanation for his removal but clearly his consistent, principled, and conservative votes have riled the GOP Establishment.”

“It is little wonder why Congress has a 16 percent approval rating: Americans send principled representatives to change Washington and get punished in return,” Huelskamp said in a statement. “The GOP leadership might think they have silenced conservatives, but removing me and others from key committees only confirms our conservative convictions. This is clearly a vindictive move, and a sure sign that the GOP Establishment cannot handle disagreement.”

After news broke conservatives, were immediately outraged. Tea Party organization FreedomWorks even called for a ‘hostile takeover’ of the party by Tea Party activists.

    Here we go again the ‘good old boys’ ‘country club’ and ‘checkered pants’ Republicans doing little for ‘We the People’. These bozos and poor excuses for elected representatives, have once more sold us out, As I have said before all they care about is holding onto their seats, an servicing their Big Business Buddies and special interests. Hell no! They do not want to stop spending, they are just as feckless and callous as the DemocRATS.

    From American Thinker:

    “The United States finds itself in a circumstance once thought unthinkable. An ill-educated and near morally bankrupt society increasingly made up of those dependent on government combined with a governing class whose primary interest is themselves. The nation cannot, therefore, make any meaningful course correction unless and until the people finally understand they have been lied to and conned by the current establishment. That will, in all likelihood, not occur until America faces imminent collapse and the citizenry turns on those who brought the nation to its knees.”

    If we go over the fiscal cliff the demorats WILL blame the repusakins and good luck electing another repusakin to anything including dog catcher.

    What the repusakins need to do is agree to the tax increases on those making over 500 thou per year and INSIST on getting this agreement that the mortgage interest deduction for this group of people (mostly Calif. liberals and east coast liberals who use this deduction on their mega mansions to drop their adjusted net income) is eliminated, also insist on some entitlement cuts.

    If the repusakins take out full page adds in the newspapers telling the public that they are FOR raising taxes on the “rich” and some entitlement cuts NOW not maybe some time in the distant future, they are not responsible for driving the country over the cliff — the president is. With full page adds the news papers HAVE to run them other wise you will never see the repusakins side in the print or TV news.

    In 4 years when unemployment is 11% or more, inflation is at 9% or higher, the national debt is at 26 trillion and our bond rating is BBB the repusakins should have no problem keeping control of the house, taking control of the senate and presidency. THEN LOWER THE TAX RATES to what the repusakins want. Get rid of those communist bureaucracies the EPA and the education department (give the money to the states). The repusakins should be able to take control the government for the next 16 years.

    IMHO the party bosses and their sycophants, lackeys, and yes men, are actively participating in the destruction of the party. These selfish individuals and fools think that the conservative base and movement will just fall back in line, shut up and be still. We have news for them just as they needed our support when they were climbing the ladder, we can support others, I can’t wait for 2014.
