Rep. Huelskamp: Committee Removals "Only Confirms Our Conservative Convictions"

Huelskamp and others were removed from the Budget committee after voting against Ryan's budget plan as weak sauce last year

Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp said Wednesday that House Speaker John Boehner removed him and other conservative Republicans from key committee posts for conservative votes against House leadership this term.

The allegations mark the second straight day the Tea Party-backed Huelskamp has lashed out at Boehner and other House leaders for perceived punishment when they return next year for another term.
