Jackass ! – Speaker Boehner Removes Fiscal Conservatives From House Financial Committees…

Some, heck, many, were wondering why we thought it prudent to quickly dispatch John Boehner into the land of perpetual irrelevance.   Let.There.Be.No.Further.Doubt.

WASHINGTON DC - 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.”

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.  (more)

    and what exactly is the GOP party line these days? Perhaps booting the conservatives off the financial services committee is tied to an Obama request

    Who Cares!. Let them raise taxes. As long as they leave the deductions alone. Most people never take advantage of them. The the Gops can blame the Obama tax hikes. The stupid Gops should be going after more deductions not less. Even if the rate is 50% as long as deductions are there you can bring it down to 10%. Eliminating deductions is the worst idea I ever heard.

    And yet you will have Republican after Republican, still in denial, talk about how divisive it is to go after “our own.”

    Wish they would understand that the party elites are NOT “our own.”

    If Boehner was doing a decent job as Speaker of the House, they would have already passed articles of impeachment of Obama.

    In 2010 the GOP rode the TEA party wave to take back the house in convincing fashion.
    In 2012 they ignored and marginalized the TEA party and got beat badly by Obama, probably the weakest candidate for president ever.
    Now, going into 2013, the lesson the GOP has somehow taken away from this is that they need to ignore and marginalize the TEA party even more.
