Here are the 11 Conservative Republicans Speaker John Boehner is Aiming to Destroy

A handful of conservatives in the House of Representatives have been agitating to stop the leftward drift of the Republican Party. But their efforts are not appreciated by the left-leaning Republican power structure and their leader, House Speaker John Boehner (R, OH), has been using his power to destroy them. Here are the eleven Republicans the establishment GOP is aiming to destroy.

There are a very few conservative leaders in Congress. Boehner does us a favor by highlighting just who those leaders could be…

As the Heritage Foundation notes, “Over the last few years, 11 Republicans have been punished by for bucking party leadership. Here’s who they are:”

  • Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, removed from Budget Committee
  • Rep. Rod Blum of Iowa, denied a spot on the National Republican Congressional Committee’s fundraising initiative for vulnerable House members
  • Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona, removed from the GOP whip team
  • Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, removed from Budget and Agriculture Committees
  • Rep. Walter Jones of North Carolina, removed from Financial Services Committee
  • Rep. Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, removed from the GOP whip team
  • Rep. Mark Meadows, lost his chairmanship of House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee
  • Rep. Richard Nugent of Florida, removed from Rules Committee
  • Rep. Steve Pearce of New Mexico, removed from the GOP whip team
  • Rep. David Schweikert of Arizona, removed from Financial Services Committee
  • Rep. Daniel Webster of Florida, removed from Rules Committee

So, with liberals out there to be targeted and their policies destroyed, our “Republican” establishment power structure is more interested in attacking and destroying other Republicans.
