House GOP Circulate Plan to Oust Boehner

Several conservative House Republican members are contemplating a plan to unseat Speaker John Boehner from his position on January 3, Breitbart News has exclusively learned. Staffers have compiled a detailed action plan that, if executed, could make this a reality.

The Republicans, both conservatives and more establishment members alike, are emboldened after the failure of Boehner’s fiscal cliff “Plan B” on Thursday evening. Dissatisfaction with Boehner is growing in the House Republican conference, but until now there hasn’t been a clear path forward.

Those members and staffers requested anonymity from Breitbart News at this time to prevent retaliation from Boehner similar to what happened to those four members who were purged from their powerful committee assignments a few weeks ago. Their expressed concern is that if Boehner knew who they were, his adverse reaction toward them would be much more brutal than losing committee assignments, such as a primary challenge in 2014 by a leadership-sponsored candidate.

    The problem is not—not—Boehner. The members of the House have a right and obligation to vote their best judgement for the good of the country. If these are Tea Party people who believe and understand that raising taxes is the wrong thing to do, and they are willing to face the voters on this issue–who can say they are wrong? Or as the Rep. from Ohio said publically calling them “Chuckleheads”. Really? Who is he to say they should agree with him or they are “Chuckleheads”?
    The congress and President all had a hand in making this disaster! Now, we should have confidence in their blather that they will fix this? People like Conrad, Dorgan, Pomeroy, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Reid, Pelosi etc. etc. made this problem—-so who has the gumption to tell the American people that there will be real pain if the fix is to be applied!
