Body control no longer depends on which member is grasping that big stick
Congressman John Boehner was reelected to serve as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, however, for a second time, his leadership has been questioned by fellow Republicans who voted for alternative candidates.
The following Republicans all voted for alternatives to Boehner.
Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI), Rod Blum (R-IA), Dave Brat (R-VA), Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), Curt Clawson (R-FL), Scott DesJarlais (R-TN), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Scott Garrett (R-NJ), Chris Gibson (R-NY), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Walter Jones (R-NC), Steve King (R-IA), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Mark Meadows (R-NC), Richard Nugent (R-FL), Gary Palmer (R-AL), Bill Posey (R-FL), Scott Rigell (R-VA), Marlin Stutzman (R-IN), Randy Weber (R-TX), Daniel Webster (R-FL) and Ted Yoho (R-FL) *
These 24 Representatives honored their word, promising the people who sent them to Washington, they would work to reign in an out of control government. The only way to begin such a monumental task is to replace leadership in the House of Representatives. After the votes were tabulated, these mutinous challengers may have walked away losers of a battle, but many among their ranks, believe the outcome of this war will be decided when Conservatives regain complete control in 2016.
Until then, some say we are 'stuck with this sniveling RINO- intellectual-corpse.'
