This is outrageous. In my previous post, It is Time to Apologize to the Tea Party, we learned that Michele Bachmann was not talking to reporters about her vote to renew John Boehner’s speakership at the last minute, and wondered if it was because she was embarrassed, or hiding something. Well, now we may know why she kept quiet! John Boehner was losing support and about to lose his Speakership, but just like ObamaCare was passed with bribes, Speaker Boehner may have used similar tactics to convince the few needed to vote for him by rewarding them with favors, favors including being made part of certain committees, or giving certain bills a chance to be looked at in committees.
According to Congressman Louis Gohmert, “We don’t do earmarks anymore. That use to be the way you would get people on board.”
Thankfully, Congressman Louis Gohmert shared what he knew about this vote in an interview with Larry O’Connor of Breitbart News linked below:

Now, GOP Voters, I am addressing this to you. You need to let your representatives know that the State’s concerns can come second to the nation’s, and that you are willing to SACRIFICE a bill or two if the country’s needs are not being met. Replacing John Boehner would have been a start in the right direction, but yet another opportunity has been wasted. Please tell them to stop using the state as an excuse for doing the WRONG THING!
The following twelve representatives did not play Boehner’s dirty game. They deserve our praise and recognition. They will probably be outcasts now in DC.
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM) Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) Voted Present: Rep. Stockman (R-TX) Abstained: Rep. Labrador (R-ID) Rep. Mulvaney (R-SC).
Everyone else betrayed us:
