The Washington Examiner recently reported that Republican House Speaker John Boehner is under intense public pressure against his election as speaker and his revenge against Congressmen Daniel Webster and Rich Nugent, who have been removed from the Rules Committee as a result of their opposition to Boehner’s leadership.
It is rumored that NJ Congressman Scott Garrett could also be removed as chairman of a House Financial Services committee. Garrett is the only NJ Congressman who voted against Boehner on Tuesday.
It is great news to see that voters are standing up and speaking out, and that it seems to be having an effect. The Examiner indicates that Boehner may be rethinking his recent actions to penalize opponents.
Here’s what you can do TODAY to keep up that pressure. The worst thing that could happen would be for the voters to think their calls have had the desired effect and back off.
1. Call your Congressman’s office to express your opinion. If your representative is a Democrat, the message should be that the voters have spoken and want a change of direction in DC, and that you expect your voice to be respected by your Congressman.
