Boehner Wins Speaker Vote, #ConservativesNeverForget2016


While it was a long shot, and despite blowing up the capitol switchboard, John Boehner is once again elected as Speaker of the House. There are gonna be a lot of ticked off conservatives back home in the districts, just sayin’.

Here’s the list of 25 brave dissenters as reported by the Washington Post:

  1. Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.) — Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)
  2. Rep. Brian Babin (Tex.) — “present”
  3. Rep. Rod Blum (Iowa) — Rep. Dan Webster (R-Fla.)
  4. Rep. Dave Brat (Va.) — Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.)
  5. Rep. Jim Bridenstine (Okla.) — Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.)
  6. Rep. Curt Clawson (Fla.) — Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)
  7. Rep. Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.) — Jordan
  8. Duncan — Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.)

  23. Rep. Randy Weber (Tex.) — Gohmert

And here is the link to the U.S. House of Representatives contact list. Peruse it and notice the number of newly elected folks who campaigned on Tea Party, Constitutional values and failed to stand up to be counted in this historic attempt of an overthrow of the establishment Republican Party.

No doubt the elected, both incumbent and freshman, aren’t too worried that the memory of this vote will carry much weight in two years when they are all up for re-election. If the results of the 2014 elections didn’t get their attentions, perhaps the 2016 elections will teach them that #ConservativesNeverForget2016.
