Boehner is (politically) dead; long live Boehner 2.0?

Boehner is (politically) dead; long live Boehner 2.0?

*********************************************************

Conservatives achieved a great victory when #Boehner resigned. Boehner’s resignation was the result of conservative and Tea Party pressure and resistance from within Congress and more importantly from without.

A collective “High Five” to all.

The bad news is #KevinMcCarthy is in line to be #Speaker, and he appears to be Boehner 2.0.  He is also inept giving #HillaryClinton a political life preserver by saying the Benghazi committee is intended to harm her politically, and #KevinMcCarthy opposed Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi committee.

Now more than ever we need strong, principled, courageous, conservative Rep leaders in the House and Senate.  [Regarding Mitch McConnell, sign the petition at http://firetheleader.com/]

Under the House rules, the Speaker needs an absolute majority of the votes cast, 218 if all 435 vote.  The Reps have 247 members so if 30 or more refuse to vote for McCarthy, he will not be Speaker.

This is a top priority of Redlands Tea Party Patriots.  http://www.teapartypatriots.org/news/will-house-conservatives-make-their-mark-on-history/

If you do not want Boehner 2.0 here is what we can do.

Call, email, and/or Tweet your Rep member of congress and/or any Rep member and urge him or her to vote for someone other than McCarthy.  [Repeat as many times as possible]  Even if you are not from the district, leave a message.

At this point, we do not need to agree on who should be Speaker, we only need to make sure it is not McCarthy.

  • The 24/7 Capitol switchboard is 202-224-3121.  Call and ask for your or a member of congress.  After hours, you can leave a voicemail message.
  • Or, go to http://www.house.gov/ to find your or a House member by name or zip code.  From there you can find his/her home page with contact information including district office number and usually Twitter handle.
  • Or, Tweet from your Twitter account.
  • Or, Tweet from the member’s Twitter page by clicking on the links below.

Boehner resigning was a great victory for the conservative cause.  Let’s not fritter it away by allowing the #Establishment to replace Boehner with Boehner 2.0.
