Conservatives Being Removed From House Finance Committees

By that political whore, John Boehner. The liberalizing of the Republican Party is underway, folks. Soon enough, we’ll be just like every other shithole on the planet. Our “conservative party” will be comprised of nothing more than non-radical liberals.

The fissure between the GOP establishment and Tea Party members in Congress blew wide open Monday evening when conservative members of Congress were suddenly removed from House financial committees.

RedState’s Erick Erickson was the first reliable source to share that conservatives were reportedly being removed from the House’s finance related committees by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio).

Shortly after, Roll Call reported that Rep. David Schweikert of Arizona had been removed from from the Financial Services Committee “for bucking the party line too often.”

“This morning Congressman Schweikert learned there was a price to be paid for voting based on principle. That price was the removal from the House Financial Services Committee,” Rachel Semmel, Schweikert’s spokesman,told POLITICO. “We are obviously disappointed that Leadership chose to take this course, but Rep. Schweikert remains committed to fighting for the conservative principles that brought him here.”

Roll Call later added that Walter Jones of North Carolina had also been removed from that committee. Additionally, Reps. Justin Amash of Michigan and Tim Huelkamp of Kansas were removed from the House Budget Committee, which Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is currently chair and will continue to chair in the next Congress.

    Time for a new party anyway. No great loss.

    Leading from behind. The cowardice and lack of principle showed by the GOP lately is disappointing as hell. One electoral defeat, and the party is imploding. The Speaker needs to remember the reason he is in that position in the first place; because of the tea party and the 2010 election.

    John Boner is no alpha male.
    Pathetic rollover pussy.

    Boner is behaving as if he has plans for a presidential run. He needs to get that out of his thick head. Ain’t gonna happen.

    Presidential run?

    Um, no.
    Boehner is behaving like a man who only understands cementing his own bureaucratic powers. He isn’t a vision guy, just an ankle-biter who’s played the insider game long enough to grab his position by attrition.

    And its now our/Ohio’s job to get the guy PRIMARIED HARD. Any Tea Partiers in Ohio listening? Get your candidate ready to run against this turd. He’s going to be weaker than 2010 and to be honest, I’d vote Democrat just to hand him his political ass on a steaming plate.

    I hope his district has the balls to do the right thing and challenge him. If that fails, stay home and let the bastard lose. He’s working for the enemy.

    Dems been ruling over Repubs regularly… seems they are much more devious at painting them into a corner…. slick willies, perverts, tax evaders, and charlatans… the kind you meet at the circus or fair grounds… con men, liars, theives… etc…. Not an ounce of dignity or self respect in the lot of them.
