Steve King gets it. Michelle Bachman gets it. What is wrong with Boehner? With Cantor?

h/t to texasgalt for the King link.

According to sources familiar with discussions among House Republican leadership, Boehner and Cantor were informed by GOP leadership staff that it would have been “relatively easy” to gain the necessary votes to change House rules to allow the Bachmann-King amendment to be included in the continuing resolution. “It has been done in the past without a lot of sound and fury,” says a current House member. “You change the rules and then you include the amendment that you want now that the rules have been changed. I don’t know why this situation is any different.”


Boehner, along with the GOP House Leadership, are deliberately and forcefully preventing Congressmen King’s and Bachmann’s efforts to ACTUALLY defund ObamaCare. Are they deliberately protecting ObamaCare by hiding behind rules they could easily change?

No more games Mr Speaker. No more sophist nonsense. We didn’t hire a pansy don’t be a pansy.

Do the right thing. Keep your word.


We need to turn the pressure up.

      We’re not talking loud enough.

    Boehner is listening to “the people.” The ones that matter to him. Those in his district. And until he sees them organizing politically to take him out in the primary, don’t expect him to go out on a limb and fight to change the status quo.

    If the conservatives Republicans in his district do not demonstrate that they are going to present a credible threat to Boehner’s chances of winning his 2012 primary election, why should he change? All things being equal, he’ll cruise to a primary and then general election victory.

    And that goes for every other House Republican. Until they see “we the people” flocking into the Republican Party to fill up the empty precinct committeeman slots — which allows them to then create a credible threat to the incumbents’ chances of winning the primary election — you won’t see any change in the incumbents.

    If “we the people” don’t fight for our rights, why should they?

    We get the representatives we deserve. We elected them, didn’t we?

    Want to “do something” that will matter? Become a precinct committeeman as a start.

    Thank you.

    For Liberty,

    Not only do those two get it, there is not ONE talk radio host that is not pissed off at Boehner and Cantor, I mean Levin, Hannity, Rush and Chris Plante up my way are so ANGRY at what Boehner is doing you can bet that if he were to ask them to do it one more time it will be voted DOWN!

    Marco Rubio said he will not vote anymore for continuing resolutions, period! Boehner has reached the end of his power with this pathetic tripe!

      Amen Jaded, but isn’t the disconnect bigger than merely the CR vehicle, or even the 100-39=61B. Its the refusal to end the Pelosi-ObamaCare-CR Rider for $100B+/year that S King spoke of?
