Is Boehner Done? Congressman Makes ‘Unprecedented’ Move To Oust Speaker

In a bold, “unprecedented” move, a North Carolina representative has taken action to oust House Speaker John Boehner from his leadership position, and it could mean the end for the Ohio Republican.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R) filed a resolution on Tuesday, which would effectively strip Boehner of his Speakership, after he says pressure from others caused him to do so, TheBlaze reported. Meadows’ resolution, if passed, would declare “the office of Speaker of the house of Representatives vacant,” meaning that the long-time incumbent would no longer have the reigns of the House in his hands.

The motion, which I second, accuses Boehner of having “endeavored to consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of 435 Members of Congress and the people they represent,” and effectively rendering Congress useless by allowing it to be “subservient” to the other two branches. All of this, says Meadows, has diminished “the voice of the American people.”

The “pretty brutal,” as congressional reporter Matt Fuller put it, motion also highlights the multiple abuses of power that Meadows believes Boehner engages in, including punishing “Members who vote according to their conscious” rather than how the Speaker wants them to, and failing to follow proper rules and procedures regularly.

Meadows said that while he felt compelled to file the motion, he’s “fearful” of what may happen as a result, and it’s hard to blame him. Boehner is known for ruling with an iron fist and getting vengeance on those who dare cross him, so it stands to reason there will likely be harsh consequences for Meadows.

Unfortunately, because the resolution wasn’t filed as a “privileged” motion, it won’t receive a straight up or down vote on the House floor, but instead has to be sent to the Rules Committee for review. That process makes its ultimate fate unknown, as it’s not exactly clear how many representatives support Meadows in his bold endeavor.

However, I fully support him. It’s long overdue to get the RINOs out of office, and start running the nation based on what We the People want, rather than what the political elite feel will benefit them the best. Boehner hasn’t done the American people or the country any favors, and ousting him would send a bold message to the rest of the RINOs in office – We the People have had enough.
