Retaliation begins…

Retaliation BeginsThe revenge on the Congressmen who voted for new leadership in the House of Representatives has begun.  There are several reports of members being taken off committees and being removed as sponsors of legislation.

From the Politico, ” John Boehner is getting revenge. After he secured his third term as speaker Tuesday afternoon, losing 25 votes on the House floor to some relatively unknown members of the Republican Conference, Boehner moved swiftly to boot two of the insurgents from the influential Rules Committee. That could be just the start of payback for the speaker’s betrayers, who might see subcommittee chairmanships and other perks fall away in the coming months.”

It is clear that the leaders on Capitol Hill will continue to not listen to the voices of the people.   From Politico, “We don’t need these fringe guys as much as we did anymore,” said a GOP leadership aide, speaking on condition of anonymity. “We can let them walk on certain bills, and it just won’t matter. That gives us breathing room.”

Please send a kind word to those who stood up for principles in the Speaker Race. NOW is the time to call those 25 members who put themselves out there for us and tell them how much we appreciate their efforts. Some are NEW members.
