“If you believe in the Balanced Budget Amendment that says we’re balanced within five years, you’re purged [from House committee assignments by John Boehner and Eric
Cantor].” – Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)
Eric Cantor and John Boehner betray conservatives and ignore the 2012 Republican platform to restore the American economy: “Prosperity provides the means by which individuals and families can maintain their independence from government, raise their children by their own values, practice their faith, and build communities of self-reliant neighbors. It is also the means by which the United States is able to assert global leadership.”
Cantor, Boehner, John McCain and the likes of Republicans who act contrary to the mandate of the voters, sow the seeds of a third-part movement. These are weakening the Republican Party as much as this sitting president.
How are we different from the Democrats? We voted conservatives into the House to differentiate ourselves from the socialists Democrats, but Boehner, Cantor and McCain appear ready to “go along to get along”. Boehner even suggested a “one on one” meeting with Obama to resolve the budget impasse.
Mr. Boehner, we expect you to meet with the conservative members of the House we voted into office, not make a back-room deal with the head of the Democrat Party.
