Hal Rogers is an elderly Pork Barrel spender. I try to hope that he’ll spend one term as Chairman and decide to retire while on top.

” I just tried to call Boehner’s office; lines are busy and then, when you get through, his mail box is full. I guess We The People are questioning his “lack” of spine, guts, and gonads. Apparently, Boehner (and the rest of the gutless GOP)”

Don’t forget the other spineless, gutless wonder.... RINO-endorsing McConnell.

The sole purpose of the Republican Party is to serve as an ineffective alternative to the Democrat Party.

For those who have not been following too closely, Chairmen only control committee decisions when a majority of the party members on the committee agree with him. Rogers was elected as chairman of this committee because they still use seniority as part of the selection process, and he wasn’t term limited out like past Chairman Jerry Lewis. meantime they added nine new GOPers to the committee, including anti-earmark hero Jeff Flake and four Tea Party freshmen. The other four are not known as supporters of earmarks. The meetings of the committee should make great C-SPAN viewing.

The GOP term limits committee chairs and ranking members at 3 terms. They can be granted a waiver to continue though.

I think the steering committee chooses the committee chairs not the conference at large.
