  •  Is Boehner chairmanship purge part of planning (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    for an agreement on the feared "fiscal cliff"?

    Freedom Works is in a snit:
    In the final days before the start of a new Congress, John Boehner (Office Phone Number: 202-225-0600) and the Republican establishment is quietly purging crucial House committees of strong fiscal conservatives, including:

    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)

    These three principled legislators have stood with the Constitution even when it was unpopular to do so. Their dedication to the principles of lower taxes and limited government is now being punished by a Speaker who would rather concede to the big spenders in Congress instead of making the tough choices.

    Could it be a wolf gnawing off its leg to escape a trap?

    "A young man who wishes to remain a sound Atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere ". C. S. Lewis
