Tag: John Boehner

Screaming at an empty room!

Over 560,000 Letters were generated and sent to the “‘Don’t Be Yellow: Dump Boehner Now!’ campaign,” but they will arrive too late. The House voted to keep Boehner today, and this momma is MAD!

Why, because the voice of 560,000 people was completely muted in today’s vote! At this point I don’t think “they” (our elected officials) hear us at all! And they certainly DON’T have a spine!!! DC mantra: “Go with the flow, don’t make waves, or else the Establishment will devour you, or better yet-you won’t be placed on the committee you want :(“

House Reps are also lying by saying that they “HAD” to vote for Boehner because he was nominated in November, and this is NOT true, others were nominated and our representatives had a choice!!! The others who were nominated and could have been picked were:

1) Ted Yoho

2) Daniel Webster

3) Louie Gohmert

My representative DID vote FOR Boehner-which just shows me that he does not represent my voice. The house could have gone bold here, but they opted to do whatever the hell they wanted, not what we wanted! How can you call for change, if you don’t make changes???

I am however proud of these 25 Reps that stood up to the Establishment and voted against Boehner:

  1. Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.) — Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)
  2. Rep. Brian Babin (Tex.) — “present”
  3. Rep. Rod Blum (Iowa) — Rep. Dan Webster (R-Fla.)
  4. Rep. Dave Brat (Va.) — Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.)
  5. Rep. Jim Bridenstine (Okla.) — Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.)
  6. Rep. Curt Clawson (Fla.) — Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)
  7. Rep. Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.) — Jordan
  8. Duncan — Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.)
  9. Rep. Scott Garrett (N.J.) — Webster
  10. Rep. Chris Gibson (N.Y.) — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.)
  11. Rep. Paul Gosar (Ariz.) — Webster
  12. Gohmert — Gohmert
  13. Rep. Tim Huelskamp (Kan.) — Webster
  14. Rep. Walter Jones (N.C.) — Webster
  15. Rep. Steve King — Webster
  16. Rep. Tom Massie (Ky.) — Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.)
  17. Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.) — Webster
  18. Rep. Rich Nugent (Fla.) — Webster
  19. Rep. Gary Palmer (Ala.) — Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.)
  20. Rep. Bill Posey (Fla.) — Webster
  21. Rep. Scott Rigell (Va.) — Webster
  22. Rep. Marlin Stutzman (Ind.) — Webster
  23. Rep. Randy Weber (Tex.) — Gohmert
  24. Webster — Webster
  25. Yoho — Yoho

FYI-Boehner might be ousted-

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!
