Top House Republicans announced their recommendations Tuesday for the new Congress committee chairmanships, an all-male list that includes returning Paul Ryan to the Budget panel and seven new faces to head other committees.
The leaders proposed waiving the GOPs six-year term limit for Ryan, R-Wis., to keep his chairmanship.
Several other long-term committee chairs would be replaced, including Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla., who has led the Foreign Affairs Committee. Instead, the leaders recommended Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif.
Asked about the lack of women among the leaders recommendations to head committees, Michael Steel, spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, noted that three women have been selected to the partys leadership for next year. They include Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., who will be the No. 4 House GOP leader.

Well of course! Why else do you think it was planted there, if not to flag the attention of the liberal flying monkeys.
Just payback to men for voting Repub. Suck it up women, go apply for jobs on the other side.
And I thought Libtards didn’t like our republican females... turns out they were fer ‘em all the time.
Are any of these chairmen other than Ryan, Tea Party?
Sure, so long as they can use them. Blasted liberal misogynists.
Who cares. These guys must be replaced with conservative/articulate/partisan leadership, and I pray the new house rejects these clowns.
