How Republicans Will Govern – ‘Boehner defectors booted from panel’

benghazi 2

Get rid of those who disagree with you……

‘Multiple House Republicans are facing apparent retribution for declining to support John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) reelection as Speaker’.

‘Florida Republican Reps. Dan Webster and Richard Nugent have lost their spots on the House Rules Committee. A spokesman for the panel confirmed Webster and Nugent’s departures but didn’t elaborate on the circumstances’.

House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas) did not express opposition to forcing two members off of his committee’.

‘Sessions, who supported Boehner’s candidacy, said the conference needed to reconcile after the “open fight” on the House floor’.

‘The powerful Rules Committee controls how legislation is considered on the floor, with members appointed directly by the Speaker’.

  2. Hmm- this is a bad thing? Let’s be honest here- the list of those republicans who voted against Boehner reads like a rogues gallery of some of the worst far right extremists in our government. And many of the very same people most responsible for dragging the GOP to the right and willfully choosing to gridlock our government rather then help govern.

    I’d say too bad all they can do is kick them off panels….

    • To me it’s a bad thing by way of reducing their exposure. This small group is leading the Republicans. Expose them. Without the ‘credibility’ that being on a committee brings, regardless of the committee, it’s just some rep standing there. But when so and so on the ‘Rules’ Committee speaks, it adds extra perceived weight.
      So again to me, this small group is determining the direction of the Republican party. Keep and increase the exposure they get so that the independents and the huge mass that didn’t vote will say – “not them’.
