Current Speaker of the House John Boehner is set to be re-elected again on January 6th….or is he? There has been a recent movement to unseat the Ohio Congressman, who has served in this position since 2011. There is a need for at least 30 Congressman to vote for someone else, in order for this to happen and the support is adding up! One vocal rep standing out against Boehner’s re-election has been Congressman Jim Bridenstine from OK. On Bridenstine’s Facebook Page earlier today he stated: “I will not vote for John Boehner.” Listing the CRomnibus Bill as the number one reason why, “a $1.1 trillion spending bill which funded the government for 10 months and blocked our newest elected Republicans from advancing conservative policy and delivering on campaign promises.” I wrote a blog on what this asinine bill is a few weeks ago-check it out here.
I personally would LOVE to see someone else take Boehner’s spot!!! This Tuesday will be interesting! Stay tuned!
