Senate Conservatives Fund Calls for Boehner To Be Replaced as House Speaker

Debt ceiling debacle

The Senate Conservatives Fund says that it is time for House Speaker John Boehner to go and they will keep track of the GOP lawmakers that support their effort to oust him from his leadership post.

The group, which is targeting several incumbent Republicans in primary races this year, said Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, has sold out small government principles on too many occasions and the last straw came this week when House GOP leaders signaled they were going to support a bill to increase the nation's borrowing limit without attaching any strings to reduce spending.

One response to “Senate Conservatives Fund Calls for Boehner To Be Replaced as House Speaker

  1. They should have gotten rid of him as soon as the Tea Party put him in the Speaker’s chair.

    The policies John Boehner championed in the House are the reason why the Tea Party rose up–and they’re the reason why the Tea Party didn’t rise up from within the Republican Party.

    He used to be Bush’s man in the House on TARP and the prescription drug benefit–now he’s basically Obama’s man in the House on spending!

    Should have thrown his ass out years ago. He doesn’t belong in the party that Goldwater and Reagan built.
