Skip to comments.Boehner to members: Leadership is watching your voting patterns
Posted on 12/05/2012 3:35:23 PM PST by Windy City Conservative
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) warned his conference on Wednesday that leaders are "watching" how the rank-and-file vote to determine committee assignments, according to sources in the closed-door meeting.
Boehner addressed the firestorm over the removal of four lawmakers from plum committee assignments at the weekly GOP conference meeting.

Now why on earth would I do that?
My topic is general voting patterns. You don't seem to think our leadership should any longer take voting patterns into consideration.
WE CAN FORCE HIM OUT!
I imagine he has.
The Speaker of the House assigns and re-assigns.
No mystery really.
Uh no.... Those who can't see a difference between Pelosi and Boner need a head transplant. Let's keep our wits about this and methodically push for a replacement.
You obviously don't.
I imagine he hasn’t. So I’m going to say he has NEVER removed someone from a committee for having a too liberal a voting record and challenge someone to prove me wrong.
And we’re watching your actions, Boehner. I don’t like what I’m seeing.
Mr. Boehner, we are watching the votes too (for a long time)
Updated Congressional Vote Scorecard
I did my original vote scorecard some time in 2008.
Note the yellow highlighted votes on key issues.
I don't think so:
This article has info about new members who are fighting the fight. Do not look for Boehner to get credit for appointing these members, however.
Apparently Boner does. Time to deny him the Speakership, no matter what it costs.
The question is will Pelosi become the majority leader in January, 2013 or January 2015?
And thereby willy-nilly assign members thereby never achieving any cuts or elimination of agencies.
It's nice that it's not just the Paulists and what was the libertarian wing of the party seeing that now that it's the conservatives' turn.
Well, if you don't have the facts (you're only imagining) I don't know why you would say he has never done so.
I'm sure as Speaker he has assigned and re-assigned because this is what Speakers do every term. Whether they may have been liberal, conservative or just plain inept I do not know.
I'm also not a Republican shill.
Boehner is going to lose this fight. I'll be pushing for that.
Reap the whirlwind.
Your vapid promises of cuts and elimination of agencies is empty and void. Point me to one.
Your time is over. Adapt or don't.
Can you follow up with a comment? Not sure what your point is.
The point is I’m inviting Boehner defenders to show us how even handed he is.
You would have a better chance of getting cuts or elimination of agencies by picking random people off of the street since neither party never has and never will do that. There might be 3 people in the house and senate who aren't power mad narcissists, and you don't get power by cutting spending and eliminating agencies.
Yet you imply they should not be considered in House assignments?
Your vapid promises of cuts and elimination of agencies
LOL. Where did I promise this?
