U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner's purge of some dissident Republican congressmen from key committees may continue as he seeks to tighten control over his unruly caucus ahead of difficult votes on "fiscal cliff" issues.
House Republican lawmakers said on Wednesday that in addition to the four conservatives who were stripped of their committee assignments earlier this week, other unnamed lawmakers were warned that their votes need to be more in line with party leadership and committee chairmen.
In effect, these congressmen are not "team players"

It looks like Boehner doesn’t want an real Conservatives complaining when he bends over for Obama and raises taxes.
Conservatives need to tel Boehner how this next Speaker is going to be elected.
Conservatives are all voting for (Lt Col West/ Gingrich/ a true conservative) and either Boehner can line up the other GOPe to get with the program - or the Dems elect Pelosi to speaker.
Time for hardball! (Boehner drew first blood.)
It looks like Boehner is preparing to become a lobbyist very soon and has agreed to sell out to Obama to ensure he will be taken care of by Obama’s DC cronies.
The GOP: The Judenrat for the MarxoFascists.
Conservatives get to wear the pretty yellow star this time around.
Boner only needs to annoy 12 more CongressCritters to put his job at risk.
This teary eyed, gelding boozer HAS GOT TO GO!!
I knew he was a grave mistake when the “go along to get along” crowd loved him back in 2010.
Now, he’s not just a speed bump, he’s a damn stone wall to restoring the Constitution.
Hey, Ohio Tea Party, DO YOUR STUFF AND DUMP THIS POS.
You get what you reward. Left movement by the GOP has been rewarded by some.
I was going to elaborate on how ole b@!!less boehner and hissy chrissy mathyeuus have the same fantasy about tingly legs and bending over for barry!
But I'll let the vulgarity slide with just this abstract. I've pushed the envelope too far as it is.
That weak suck Crbaby boner has to go.
“It looks like Boehner is preparing to become a lobbyist very soon and has agreed to sell out to Obama to ensure he will be taken care of by Obamas DC cronies”
Never thought about that take, but it makes sense.
I hope Bonehead purges about 12 more conservatives. Those 12 plus
The recent 4 could end his leadership position.
Purge ahead Bonehead.
Of course he will get a lobbying job with Trent Lott.
And the dumb conservatives that go along with this charade will be
looking for a new job.
If we apply the ideas of sports whereby a losing coach is fired, The Congressional leaders would be replaced - bad W/L record!!! The Speaker needs replacing.
It should be obvious to all of us that Boehner is likely getting help from the other side to help in his effort to expunge the undesirables.
There are 61 congresscritters in Michelle Bachman’s Tea Party caucus—if only a third of them stood up to the RINO fascist Boehner he would be removed as Speaker.
Is is war with crybaby.
They weren’t elected to be “team players.” They were elected to represent THEIR constituents.
Boehner is creating the genesis of the new third party.
