As far back as when this moron co-sponsored SEIU legislation in our state House through her sheer cowardice for lacking the guts to hold regular, open town hall meetings and dishonesty in fooling people into believing she stands up for them on dreck like the CRC scam, has Jaime Herrera been anything BUT Cathy McMorris's butt-boy... or should I say, butt-girl?
I wondered why she was able to scam an Appropriations seat given her complete lack of production on Transportation, where this simple idiot had two years to spike the CRC.
Let's see if the following has anything to do with it, shall we? Freedom Works asks us:
Rep. Tim Huelskamp (KS) - House Budget Committee (96% FreedomWorks Lifetime Rating)
Rep. Justin Amash (MI) – House Budget Committee (100% FreedomWorks Lifetime Rating)
Rep. David Schweikert (AZ) – House Financial Services (96% FreedomWorks Lifetime Rating)
These three principled legislators have stood with the Constitution even when it was unpopular to do so. Their dedication to the principles of lower taxes and limited government is now being punished by a Speaker who would rather concede to the big spenders in Congress instead of making the tough choices.
Call John Boehner and tell him to restore these genuine fiscal conservatives to their respective committees.
Call House Speaker John Boehner Now
And then, this little tidbit from The Hill:Office Phone Number: (202) 225-0600
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) warned his conference on Wednesday that leaders are "watching" how the rank-and-file vote to determine committee assignments, according to sources in the closed-door meeting.
Boehner addressed the firestorm over the removal of four lawmakers from plum committee assignments at the weekly GOP conference meeting.
According to Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.), one of the lawmakers denied a spot on his current committee in the next Congress, Boehner did note "that we [leadership] have punished four members, he claimed that it had nothing to do with their conservative ideology, but had to do with their voting patterns."
Also removed from committee spots were Reps. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), Walter Jones (R-N.C.) and David Schweikert (Ariz.).
Huelskamp added that Boehner warned GOP lawmakers that "there may be more folks that will be targeted ... 'we're watching all your votes."
"It was a message to the Republican conference in general, especially the comment today that there may be more punishment coming if you don’t vote the right way,” Huelskamp said.
More, if you can stomach it.A source at the conference meeting disputed Huelskamp's characterization of Boehner's point, noting that the Speaker said "some votes factored into [the decision to remove lawmakers from committee assignments] but it wasn't just [votes], it was a bigger picture than all that, that caused this to happen."
The crux of the problem is that Democrats have successfully employed a "divide and conquer" strategy when outspoken GOP House members "gratuitously bad mouth the leadership," a separate source told The Hill.
So, let me get this straight:
The GOP-controlled legislature of Florida redistricts Allen West out of his district so he'll lose; these conservatives are denied continuation in their fiscal committees... Jaime Herrera doesn't accomplish a damned thing, the CRC is still breathing down our necks thanks to that bimbette and SHE gets what appears to be rewarded by an Approps seat assignment?
Barak O'Boehner indeed.
In the end, RINO's are going to screw us all. And that means O'Boehner and RINO Jaime Herrera.
I believed her to be despicable when she parachuted in here. I still believe her to be a disgrace to anything remotely conservative. And when she acts as McMorris's puppet, she'll be shafting us all in the process... as she "porks it up" and does her best top bring home the bacon for her buddy Tim "The Liar" Leave-it.
She will be in lockstep with whatever the O'Boehner/McMorris cabal wants. And that cannot be good for us.
