Last week the GOP establishment purged four principled conservatives from their committee assignments.
And at a closed door caucus meeting on Capitol Hill, Speaker Boehner reportedly warned members that leadership is watching their “voting patterns.”
It appears the GOP establishment is going all-out to maintain their iron grip on the Republican Party.
You and I can’t allow establishment Republicans to punish conservatives for voting their values.
The petition urges John Boehner and Paul Ryan to stop purging fiscal conservatives from committee assignments, and to reinstate the four already purged from their positions.
You see, according to news reports, two of the congressmen were purged from the Budget Committee for voting for a five-year balanced budget plan – instead of Paul Ryan’s budget which balanced in twenty-eight years.
Apparently, it seems that not toeing the establishment line is grounds for purging fiscal conservatives from committee assignments.
Our country is $16 trillion in debt, the “official” unemployment rate is just under 8%, and assaults on our liberties continue on a daily basis.
It’s time for Republicans to get serious for a change.
It’s time for my colleagues to stop insulting Americans’ intelligence with tired talking points and phony “solutions.”
Instead of caving on their no tax pledge with phony solutions like the $800 BILLION tax hike put forth by leadership in the house, Republicans should be leading the charge for lower taxes and smaller government.
But I’m afraid, for that to happen, you and I are going to have to force my colleagues to recognize you will not tolerate Republicans being indistinguishable from Democrats.
And I believe one sure way to do that is for you and I to let the GOP establishment know constitutional conservatives won’t tolerate them purging fiscal conservatives from their committee assignments.
You and I must not sit back and allow the GOP establishment to maintain its iron grip on our party.
