What Has Speaker Boehner Done for Americans Lately?

Leigh Bravo · Jan. 6, 2015

John Boehner has promised over and over not to fall into the status quo trap. He has promised over and over not to give in to President Obama. He has promised over and over to fight Obama’s illegal amnesty. He has promised over and over to give the Congress over 72 hours to read bills. He has promised over and over to curtail the spending that is sending middle class Americans down the proverbial drain. He has promised to fight President Obama. He has promised again and again and again. Speaker Boehner has made more false promises to Americans as Obama has lied to Americans. Is John Boehner a Republican or a Democrat? The line between the two seems to get smaller and smaller.

In the Washington Times, Matt Kibbe, President and CEO of Freedom Works, was quoted:

“With a growing Republican majority in the House and a historically high number of liberty-voting fiscal conservatives within it, there is an urgent need to replace Speaker Boehner with fresh, bold leadership that better represents the views of the whole caucus.

"Speaker Boehner has kicked fiscal conservatives off committee positions for voting against his wishes, caved on numerous massive spending bills at the eleventh hour, and abused the legislative process to stomp out opposition by holding surprise votes and giving members little time to actually read the bills before they vote.

"An effective Speaker would be someone who leads through action, consistently doing what Republicans promised the American people they would do. We need someone willing to shake up the status quo!”

It is time for change! The Republicans swept the November elections because the American people were demanding change! They are sick to death of the status quo! They are sick of Obama’s pen and phone and want someone who will lead the charge to break that pen and cut off service to Obama’s phone!

In 2013, a total of 8 Republicans voted against Boehner’s continued speakership! Today, the number opposing Boehner is growing. it is time for all Republicans to vote “NO!” The American people are demanding change, they are demanding payment for their votes! We are ready for a real leader to tow the conservative line. Boehner is not it! The voters are watching and keeping track of those who vote “YES” and those who vote “NO!” A vote for Boehner is a vote for the status quo!

The Republican party has been given a gift! The majority of the House and Senate. It is time to do the job that was promised. Stop the spending, stop illegal amnesty, secure our borders, pass the keystone pipeline, de-regulate small business, defund Obamacare and offer up something better, get the American people back to work, stop the growth of government overreach! Do your job and represent your constituents! Republicans finally have the opportunity to take the White House in 2016, but not if they refuse to do the job they were elected to do in November, 2014. Give the American people a reason to show up to the polls! Surprise us and stand up and fight for this country. The United States of America!

The American people are mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore. It is time to step up to the plate, vote Boehner out and get down to the work of getting America back to where it belongs – the strongest economic force in the world, the most powerful country in the world, the country who stands as an example to all. A place where the American dream is accessible to all!

Contact your representative and tell them to “VOTE NO TO BOEHNER!”
