On Friday evenings’ “The O’Reilly Factor,” Laura Ingraham filled in as host and said that according to her sources a coup may be underway in Congress to remove the current Speaker of the House John Boehner after all of his tax proposals have basically moved farther an farther to the left’s desires rather than stood for conservative principles. Now comes word from Ingraham that Paul Ryan may be selected to take his place.
“I had a well-placed conservative voice today on the Hill email me and said he’s beginning to hear rumblings — I already gave something away, ‘he’ — he’s beginning to hear of a move to replace the speaker of the House,” Ingraham said. “We’re in the middle of this tussle with the Democrats, more than a tussle, and is that the right time to put that out there? And people are floating the name of Paul Ryan to be House speaker. But Ryan did support … Plan B.”
Boehner saw his proposals slapped back at him twice last weekend and his adoption of “Plan B,” which was formerly endorsed by Nancy Pelosi was also shot down this week. Boehner has been heavy handed against fiscal conservatives and has broken his own pledge to not raise taxes by submitting the proposals he has.
In addition, citizens have been campaigning against Boehner as Speaker in the new Congress and if the lack of votes on “Plan B” are any indication of what will be taking place, then I’d say it’s safe that he will lose his position.
