Coup Against Boehner Brewing in the House

On Tuesday, an eleventh-hour motion was offered by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) to officially “vacate the chair”, which if passed would remove from Speaker John Boehner the power of the gavel.

The motion came as a surprise to the entire House just as the calendar came to a close ahead of the summer recess when members leave for district meetings.

Meadows insisted the move was not a cheap political stunt, as some of his colleagues suggested, but rather a shot across the bow in hopes that House leadership will see the need for a serious ‘family meeting’.

Meadows was joined by other staunch conservative in the GOP caucus arguing that Boehner’s style of leadership represents a consolidation of power designed to silence opponents and reward those who tow the line for the Speaker’s agenda.

  1. Good, let’s get this uber RINO out! Since the mid-term elections when the GOP increased their numbers in the House and took the Senate, neither Boehner nor his counterpart in the Senate, McConnell, have done a thing to advance conservative causes in the Congress. They need to be replaced.

  2. NO ONE WILL DO A THING–OBAMA ALLOWS THEM TO MAKE TOO MUCH MONEY THE REPUBLICANS KEEP BORROWING, FOR HIM TO SPEND ON ILLEGAL ALIENS-
    BILLIONS & BILLIONS borrowed from who knows where
    it seems that the republican leadership is bought & paid for by the democratic billionaires.

  3. I am so sick of these corrupt RINO’s. I hope they all have seen their last days in Congress with the next election for them.
