Replace the Speaker
Republicans in the House of Representatives are preparing to support yet another increase in the national debt limit and they're not even trying to do anything to balance the budget or stop Obamacare.
Republicans are giving up because they know that winning is impossible when their leaders are determined to lose. These leaders have telegraphed weakness to the Democrats and sabotaged conservative efforts so many times that Republicans now have no leverage. There's only one solution.John Boehner must be replaced as Speaker of the House.
Conservatives helped Republicans win a majority in the House of Representatives, which made it possible for John Boehner to become Speaker. Unfortunately, he has chosen to ignore us and help President Obama enact his liberal agenda.
Instead of using Republican control of the House to stop bad legislation, Speaker Boehner has used it to increase spending, raise the debt limit, increase taxes, pass a bloated farm bill, and fund the implementation of Obamacare. Instead of fighting for conservative principles, Speaker Boehner has completely surrendered to the Democrats.Unless we install a new leader who will actually go on offense, Democrats will never fear us and we will never have any leverage.REPLACE THE SPEAKER
There are 232 Republicans in the House today and it requires 218 votes to be elected Speaker. If 15 Republicans refuse to vote for John Boehner at the beginning of the next Congress, he won't have the votes to be re-elected and Republicans will be forced to pick someone else for the job.
Several conservative groups including For America, Tea Party Patriots, and FreedomWorks have already called for Speaker Boehner to be replaced. Now it's time for us to join them. Here's what we need you to do.Sign our petition urging House Republicans to "Replace the Speaker."
This is very important. We need people to stand up and be counted.We need to show House Republicans that Americans expect more from them and want them to replace John Boehner.
The Speaker is elected by House Republicans and they're ultimately responsible for his actions, especially if they're unwilling to replace him after all he's done.
We created a list to track which House Republicans support the Speaker and which ones want to replace him. In the coming weeks, we will tell you which members need to receive the most phone calls.But first, please sign the "Replace the Speaker" petition.
Republicans must know that conservatives expect them to make a change at the top and we're not going to give up on this until John Boehner is gone.
It's sad that it has come to this, but enough is enough.
We will never stop the massive spending and debt that are destroying our country if the Republican Speaker of the House surrenders to the Democrats and stabs conservatives in the back.
