Amash To Boehner: You’re Not Doing A Good Job & You’re Not Welcome In My State

After a GOP purge of Tea Party conservatives Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI) and Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) from the House Budget Committee and Reps. David Schweikert (R-AZ) and Walter Jones (R-NC) from Financial Services Committee, a campaign began to depose Speaker Boehner in the incoming Congress. Recently though, Rep. Amash has said that Speaker Boehner is not doing a good enough job and that he would not be welcome in in his State’s district.

Amash told reporters on Wednesday, “If Speaker Boehner wants to come back to my district, he’s not going to be met with very much welcome.”

This was in response to being cast off the House Budget Committee, but Amash, being elected in 2010 has made it clear from the beginning that the GOP needs to stick to its principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility. During a press conference he spoke of his lack of confidence in John Boehner’s leadership.

“I spent a lot of time saying, ‘Speaker Boehner is doing the best job we can do.’ I did that for a year, a year in a half. But we’re not doing the best job we can do,” Amash said. “We need people who are going to be bold, we need leaders.”

“This is about who’s fighting for the American people,” Amash said. “I want to speak out now because I want to encourage my colleagues to be more outspoken.”

I’d say he has his fingers on America’s pulse with regards to Boehner. Not only is there a campaign to depose Boehner, but now RedState is pushing for conservatives to blast Congress with phone calls demanding that these four conservatives be put back on their committees.

Not only are we not able to rely on the GOP, as a whole, to be fiscally responsible, it seems that they are even willing to punish those who are!
