Only 16 Republicans Needed to Oust Boehner as Speaker

If 16 House Republicans abstain from voting for John Boehner as Speaker of the House in January, he will be one vote short of the 218 required to retain his position as Speaker of the House, a conservative group said Wednesday.

After Boehner removed several conservatives from key committees, the American Majority Action launched a “#FireBoehner” campaign to depose him from his speakership, the Daily Caller reported.
