CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES NOW AND TELL THEM TO REMOVE BOEHNER AS SPEAKER TODAY BEFORE THE EVENING VOTE!
LIGHT UP THE PHONE LINES!
I have a sneaky plan but I need to know how many votes it takes to force a new election for Speaker and whether or not the minority party can count in that vote.
The GOP conservative should rebel in the House against Boehner and vote him out as the Speaker and replace him with a conservative Speaker willing to do battle and take Obama to the mat.
In fact the GOP should take the following line in talking to Obama.
"Look, Barry, we have the votes to stop you cold and we have decided to do that.That's the discussion a real Speaker of the House should be having with Obama.
"We control the government funduiing and we are going to exercuise that control.
"We are talking about a complete shutdown where not so much as a dime will be available for you to even heat the White House, so get ready to stay at the local Holiday Inn on your own dime for the duration.
"the only thing we will fund during that time is the US military you hate so much.
"When you are ready to talk about seriously creating a budget...one that is balanced by the way, and reducing the debt...and we are talking about a true reduction in the actual amount we owe, not just a reduction in the percentage of your spending increases, and we are talking anout an end to ObamCare. When you are ready to seriously talk to us about those things...get back with us.
"Oh, BTW, Barry. One other thing we will fund is the following. The House of Reprentatives will meet each day with the express purpose of impeaching your sorry backside every single day for the next 60 working days. Impeach you each day on different charges. 60 times, Barry. When you get ready to talk to us, then the first thing the Senate will do will be to act on those 60 impeachments before anything else.
"So, we have the votes, and we are firm. Give us a call when you are ready to talk. Bye now."
Could they actually call together a vote to do so in the very short amount of time before the vote on this bill? The problem is that it is Congress - it would take at least a full day to get them to even agree to call a vote on this at all. And only the group within the GOP that explicitly represents the Tea Party could be counted on to remove Boehner as House speaker.
They had their chance in Jan but didn’t pull the trigger.
They (the Conservative Republicans) knew full well what they were getting.
I am not happy with Boehner, but the real failure here are the REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE!!!
They need gone far more than Boehner!
They are the ones who capitulated... A default was not going to happen, but the Senate republicans gave away the store.
Tea Party needs to focus on increasing its caucus in the Senate and growing its house presence, period.
Blaming it all on Boehner is silly.
If you are going to go down that road, it will have to be after this vote this evening. But, to be sure, there will be plenty of chances to do this since this fight is of course just gonna periodically resurface again and again anyhow.
The real failure here is with the electorate. They re-elected Obama and gave the Dems the Senate.
Until we change that, it is just pipe dreams.
Most of those people have long since disappeared, or they're singing a different tune now.

Here is the end game. Is it worth going to the mat to resist?
please stop injecting common sense and logic into the discussion.
RINO Radio hosts are doing their best to keep him on life support,, like our nation,, wheezing to an inglorious end,, abandoned by those who swore oaths.. GoPoop.
Sorry. I forgot where I was.
Agreed,, but folks need release and relief..
As of September 26, 2013 there were 232 republicans, 200 democrats and 3 vacancies.
A majority vote of 432 reps is 221.
All of the dems can be counted to vote for Boehner. But they will need 21 republicans to join them in keeping him as Speaker.
So it is feasible to hold an electronic poll right now just among republicans to see if 221 will send a signal to Boehner. They need not have the entire House vote on this. They just need a count to let the Speaker know he best cancel tonight’s debt ceiling vote.
I just tweeted and emailed my rep, Ted Yost, to call for Boehner’s resignation. I said we need a real conservative as Speaker.
I’ve said all along the Tea Party congressmen should vote to elect a true conservative speaker and ask the republicans to “join” them. Then kick the ones who vote for Pelosi out of the party.
Please help me get elected to add one more to the House Tea Party Caucus:
