"There was no encouragement to conservatives. The Speaker and Majority Leader, these folks knew there's money for abortion, money for the EPA to hurt states like Texas, Arizona. There's just all kinds of money in there for things we don't support. and, Sean, you and I know some of us had gone to our leadership and said, 'look, we can do this very easily. Let's do it together with conservatives. That's the bulk of our conference, don't make them take a wrong vote. Let's fund everything for two months. Let us have a vote on defunding Obama's amnesty, and we'll even agree that the Senate can take it out if they take the hard vote to do that and let it go from there to the president.'

Well, run for Speaker, Louis!!

The democrats, including the ones with R next to their names, are our enemies.
Committee assignments without them you are just a backbencher with no extra earning power.
Nancy Bonor has got to go.
boner has again and again proven he is flaccid. His Limpness needs to go!
The GOP Elites were smart, they already held the election for leadership positions before the next Congress is seated and they did it by voice vote.
“Buoyed by a GOP wave election, Ohio Republican Rep. John Boehner on Thursday cruised to another two years as Speaker of the House.
After Republicans captured their biggest House majority since the 1920s, not one of his conservative critics launched a last-minute bid to challenge Boehner for the top job.
The voice vote electing Boehner to a third term as Speaker came after he spent months on the road stumping and raising cash for GOP candidates across the country, from California and Iowa to New York and Maine.”—The Hill 11/13/14
