Yesterday Freedom Outpost’s Kevin Fobbs asked “Will Speaker Boehner’s Purge Of Tea Party Membership On Key House Committees Backfire? That question came in response to Boehner and the GOP leadership removing at least four fiscally conservative Tea Party members from both the Financial Services Committee and the Budget Committee, including Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ), Walter Jones (R-NC), Justin Amash (R-MI), and Tim Huelskamp (R-KS). Well Kevin’s question has been answered and quickly I might add. The American Majority Action has launched a campaign to “depose” the Speaker from his position.
The AMA’s campaign is #FireBoehner. According to the press release:
American Majority Action (AMA) has joined numerous other conservative groups in denouncing House Speaker John Boehner for purging four conservative House members from their committees.
However, AMA has taken it a step further. Beyond denouncing the Speaker, AMA’s President and CEO, Ned Ryun, has called for GOP members to fire John Boehner as speaker.
“Speaker Boehner has been an abysmal failure as speaker, and his latest purge is the nail in the coffin for conservatives.” Ryun added, “Boehner has never won a negation battle with the White House or Senate—and he’s been nothing short of an embarrassing spokesman for the Conservative Movement. It’s time for him to go.”
