John Boehner Needs to Go ~ Here is How You Can Make it Happen.

     

You can do something RIGHT NOW that will not take much of your time, but that can effect some much needed change in Washington, as soon as JANUARY 2013:

Send a letter or contact your representative to tell him or her you want them to ABSTAIN from voting for John Boehner’s renewal as Speaker of the House.   Only 16 members are needed to abstain from supporting Speaker BOEHNER in January.
 

You may not know how they vote until January, but it’s worth a shot. You should keep a copy of what you send, and follow up on how they voted. 

There are 233 House Republicans next Congress, and assuming no Democrats would vote for Boehner as Speaker (you never know), If 16 conservative Republicans abstain from voting, he would not regain the Speakership.  These are the four House Tea Party members and Fiscal Conservatives who were purged from at least two Committees on December 3rd:

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (KS) – House Budget Committee (96% FreedomWorks Lifetime Rating)
Rep. Justin Amash (MI) – House Budget Committee (100% FreedomWorks Lifetime Rating)
Rep. David Schweikert (AZ) – House Financial Services (96% FreedomWorks Lifetime Rating)
Rep.  Walter Jones (NC) – Walter Jones of North Carolina House Financial Services Committee

The legislators are dedicated to lower taxes, limited government and constitutional principles. The 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.  Please check the link at the bottom of this page for direct information from the AMA.

The following is a list of House Members Behind the Purge:

John Boehner Speaker
 
Eric Cantor Republican Leader
 

Paul Ryan Chairman Budget Committee

Kevin McCarthy Republican Whip

Peter Roskam Chief Deputy Whip

Cathy McMorris-Rodgers Republican Conference Chair

James Lankford Policy Chair

Lynn Jenkins Conference Vice-Chair

Pat Tiberi Region VI Representative

Jeff Miller Region XI Representative

Cynthia Lummis Small State Representative

John Boehner’s speakership has been abysmal.  He has done nothing but slam the Tea Party behind closed doors. It is obvious that John Boehner is afraid of Obama’s shadow, yet continues to disrespect the constituents he is supposed to represent.  He betrays us on a daily basis, and is corrupt enough to act against us for personal gains.

Anti-Conservatives like John Boehner do not deserve to be in the position he has been entrusted with. He is an irresponsible steward of that trust and a liability to the Republican Party.

It’s time for him to go! If we stop John Boehner, it will be a small, but important victory for us.

Now let’s get busy!!  Here is the letter you can send along with the list of Representatives to Contact.

Dear Congressman/Congresswoman (last name),

I respectfully ask that John Boehner be removed from his position as Speaker of the House by abstaining from a vote that it to take place for his renewal in January.

His removal of Representatives Amash, Huelskamp, Jones and Schweikert from the Budget and Financial services committees is reprehensible. It is the latest of many examples of his disdain for Conservatives and in this case, four who are aginst his willingness to capitulate on tax increases.

As a citizen of the United States of America, I am deeply troubled by direction our country is heading.  We need a Speaker who will stand up to a president who is pushing a destructive socialist agenda!

I strongly disapprove of Mr. Boehner’s actionsBoehner’s actions this week and his weak leadership since 2010 is jeopardizing our national security and I am urging you to abstain from voting for his renewal.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

*****

    I think we evolved one corrupt government, with Republican and Democratic sides. I think that at least half of the political ‘fights’ are just to put on a show for us, so that they appear to be working for us.

    With few exceptions, I want to ‘Throw them all out!’

      I have a whole lot more to say on that, Bill. Thanks for bringing up the R’s and D’s working together, they do it to keep us all at bay.

      I wanted to add this link as well. http://www.businessinsider.com/boehner-offers-to-push-back-debt-ceiling-for-a-year-2012-12 Is this someone who we should entrust with our confidence? No. He will not change. We cannot live in hope only to be disappointed again.

      Today Scott was officially named Jim DeMint’s replacement and it is a promising sign that some of our voices ARE being heard. Let’s hope our message continues to make a difference.
