Meadows has filed a motion to vacate the Speaker's chair, an action that if successful would remove Speaker of the House John Boehner for his role as the leader of the House. The Congressman came to this point after Boehner tried to remove him from a subcommittee chairmanship after Meadows voted against one of his pet projects. Meadows went public with the disagreement and Boehner ultimately relented, but the Speaker's penchant for depending on Democrats to put his agenda over the top further stirred the ire of Meadows and other conservative representatives. The idea was therefrom hatched, and the motion was filed just before the House adjourned for its August recess. Boehner had considered bringing it to the floor right then but it appears that there was some question as to whether or not the Speaker had the votes to fend of the motion.
So now here we are in September, with Congress back in session as of this morning, and the motion is still on the table. Will Boehner bring it up, try to ignore it, or try and come up with some other way to avoid it? That's the question here today and I hope that citizens throughout the country will contact their representative's office and ask for fast consideration. I don't know if Meadows has a chance of winning on the motion, but I think it's important that it be discussed since Boehner has truly been a disaster as Speaker. Frankly, he has acted more in unison with Obama than he has the majority of the House and it is now patently obvious.
Want to know why outsiders like Trump and Carson are gaining so much traction with the base of the Republican Party? It's because of the actions of men like John Boehner and his Senate counterpart, Mitch McConnell, who came to power based upon their promise to fight Obama and immediately upon victory doing just the opposite. The voters want that to change fast and no one knows it better than Representative Meadows, who has heard the message loud and clear from his North Carolina constituents.
Thank you, Mark Meadows, for bringing the subject to the forefront and we wish you every success in moving the House into a position of supporting the people who put Republicans in power. We want no more excuses, we've heard enough of them to date. It's now time for action, and your motion hopefully might be the beginning of the end of the reign of the weakest Speaker in our lifetime. God bless you in what you are trying to do.
