Curiously I had a lot of trouble on the web trying to find names of Republican House members who voted to re-elect John Boehner the Speaker. It’s easy to find the list of those few Republicans who had the courage to vote against Boehner. But try to find a list of those who voted for this guy.
Who re-elected this spineless establishment “leader” of the peoples’ House, Boehner? Better yet, who among so-called conservative House members voted for this guy? Who, indeed, consider themselves among the 48 members of the Tea-Party Caucus in the House of Representatives and yet voted to re-elect John Boehner?
I have the list (for your 2016 voting pleasure):
246 seats of the 435 seats in the House of Representatives are now occupied by Republicans. John Boehner won re-election to the House Speaker by receiving 216 votes last Tuesday, all of which were Republicans. That is, 216 out of 246 Republicans voted to re-elect Boehner.
