Revolt!

“Get your a** in line.”
If the events of this last week tell us anything it is that we need more Tea Partiers in both houses of Congress and that the old establishment ‘Pub pols must go. The removal should start with Boehner and McConnell. I admit that Boehner has shown some spine in his refusals to allow any tax increases (maybe), but as far as actual cuts, he’s been the usual establishment wimp.

Boehner’s proposal yesterday didn’t meet his pledge for more cuts in spending that the increase of the debt limit.  When the CBO exposed the flaws, $800Billion over ten years instead of $1.2Trillion and only $1Billion in cuts this year, Boehner was quick to “revise” his scheme.  To what, we don’t know.  It’s a repeat of Pelosi’s, “You have to pass it to see what’s in it.”

Tea Party Activists Revolt Against Boehner Amid Debt Crisis

As House Speaker John Boehner frantically pieces together a plan to rescue the nation from financial disaster next week, members of the Tea Party movement who helped propel Republicans back into power last fall are calling for his head.
“Boehner must go,” Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips said in his blog on Wednesday, calling the speaker a “big government Republican” who “worships at the altar of massive spending.”
“We need a speaker who is a leader. We need someone with courage and vision. Boehner has none of those qualities. He is not a leader,” Phillips wrote. “John Boehner simply wishes to be the manager in chief of the welfare state. His vision of the GOP and the speakership involves golfing, drinking and not rocking the boat.”
 Boehner’s response was, “Get your a** in line.”
Washington (CNN) – House Speaker John Boehner leveled tough words at fellow Republicans Wednesday, telling conservatives who are unhappy his bill doesn’t go far enough to “Get your ass in line.”
Boehner’s admonishment came during a closed-door meeting, during which House GOP leaders sought to rally support for their debt bill, according to two Republican sources who attended the meeting.

The Ohio Republican told members he was working hard and didn’t want to turn around and not see an army behind him.

 Yes, Boehner needs to go.  There are some that say he must be replaced as speaker with someone with true conservative principles, Representative Allen West would be good.  At least he stands behind his words. After Schultz attacked West, he responded by saying she’s, “not a lady,” and was, “vile.”  Of course, the dems get upset when a ‘Pub doesn’t just stand there and accepts insults without responding.

I have been unhappy with Marco Rubio because of some of his comments in the past.  However, he has the guts to stand up to the dems and uphold his conservative principles.

I repeat.  Boehner must go.  I sincerely hope the Ohio Tea Party runs someone against Boenher come the next primary.  Boehner is unfit to hold office.
