House Freedom Caucus
Here’s hoping all of that information about the mess of Obamacare Rep. David Schweikert has shared over the years inspires him to keep his promise to not support measures that do not successfully and smartly repeal and replace the worst health care bill in history.
#RYNOCare is destined for failure and we conservatives need to call and tweet House Freedom Caucus members today to tell them to stand firm against this bill, and that we’ve got their backs when the establishment comes after them!
Obamacare 2.0, Rinocare or Ryancare, whatever you call it, Speaker Ryan's phony "repeal and replace" bill is actually worse than Obamacare in many respects, and it is all being done behind closed doors using budget reconciliation, not open debate and amendments. To stop Ryancare's benefits for illegal aliens, and massive new entitlements and big government we urge conservatives to contact the White House to let President Trump know he's being suckered on this deal.
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., was elected chairman of the House Freedom Caucus on Monday evening by the conservative group's 42 members. Meadows, who will enter his third term in January, will replace the retiring Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio next month. The Tar Heel State politician said he is "ready to get to work," according to a statement issued shortly after the election.
Our economy has not seen a single year of growth above 3 percent while President Barack Obama has been in office. The reasons why our economy is still struggling are because our already government taxes and spends far too much, and in Clinton’s America, we can expect more of the same.
Speaker Ryan is completely tone deaf to what is driving the outsider candidacies of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. They are not winning the Republican Primaries by campaigning against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders – they are winning by campaigning against Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus and the rest of the feckless, principle-free Capitol Hill Republican leaders. Ryan’s plan for this year’s budget will only fuel their candidacies.
Ryan is tacitly allowing Boehner’s big-government package through—and most members of the House Freedom Caucus are letting him to do it. Rand Paul believes all the House Freedom Caucus members who have supported Ryan’s speakership should consider withdrawing their support if Ryan doesn’t join the Senator’s efforts to kill the bill.
Constituents are burning up the phone lines in conservative offices on Capitol Hill. They are mad at the conservatives on Capitol Hill not for standing up to Paul Ryan, but for a perception that they have cut a deal with Paul Ryan.
House conservatives would be insane to agree to these terms. Ryan is actually promising very little by way of specifics. Instead, he wants a unanimous election and then he will go into details. Put another way, Paul Ryan wants to get elected after it is made impossible to get rid of him, then he will really get into specifics.
In advance of the election to replace establishment Republican John Boehner as Speaker of the House, 55 conservative leaders from across America signed an open letter to the House Republican Conference. Entitled “Vision For New Conservative Leadership” the letter sets forth the minimum expectations conservatives have of the new post-Boehner House Republican leadership. You can add your name to the list by signing the open letter to the House Republican Conference through this link. If you are active in a conservative organization that has not joined the battle we urge you to get your organization involved in the fight to elect a conservative Speaker of the House TODAY.
Hannity told USA Today he was encouraging the House Freedom Caucus — which he credits with changing the Republican Party in a bold way — not to compromise on the speaker vote. Many in the roughly 40-member group of conservatives have said they are supporting Florida Rep. Daniel Webster for the job instead.
Kinzinger and other establishment Republicans like Pete King of New York and Rep. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania are becoming increasingly vocal in their anger and displeasure at the House Freedom Caucus and the forces that are behind them including conservative organizations, talk radio, and the Party’s grassroots base.
The reality is that there are a lot more than 40 to 50 House Republicans who want to do the right thing – the majority of House Republicans have simply been bamboozled and intimidated into believing that conservatives are a minority, when in fact we are the majority. That's why grassroots principled limited government constitutional conservatives must call their Representative and demand they oppose the election of another establishment Speaker, like Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, and vote for a conservative, like Rep. Daniel Webster of Florida, for Speaker. The House switchboard is 1-866-220-0044 - call now!
The House Freedom Caucus’s backing of Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.) ahead of a crucial internal party vote Thursday deeply complicates Majority Leader Kevin O. McCarthy’s bid to succeed Boehner. The group counts enough members — about 40 — to deny McCarthy the majority of the whole House he would need to claim the speaker’s chair.
Conservatives passed on endorsing the California Republican in favor of a long-shot bid from Rep. Daniel Webster — in hopes of securing fundamental changes to how the House operates. It’s a strong signal that conservatives aren’t happy with McCarthy’s campaign to this point, and they’re going to try and move him closer to the far-right flank of the party — the same group that rebelled against GOP leadership and helped force Speaker John Boehner’s retirement.
Rolling Stone calls them "ideologues" but the House Freedom Caucus has a simple mission: to get GOP leadership to deliver on the rhetoric that nearly all Republicans spout to get elected.
