  • Huelskamp: Cantor’s Defeat Weakens Boehner (Blood int he water)

    Roll Call ^ | 6/10/14 | Matt Fuller
    As conservatives begin to wrap their heads around the shocking primary defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, at least one member of the coup to unseat Speaker John A. Boehner doesn’t think an open spot in leadership will strengthen Boehner’s hand come the 114th Congress. Just minutes after Cantor’s defeat was official on Tuesday night, Rep. Tim Huelskamp told CQ Roll Call that Cantor’s ouster “bodes well for an entire new leadership team.” The Kansas Republican, who hasn’t been quiet about his qualms with leadership, said it’s “too early to tell” exactly how this affects leadership races, “but, again,...

    GOP firebrand Tim Huelskamp adds: "Rumors I’ve heard is [Boehner's] not going to be running for speaker again” By a 332-to-94 vote Thursday night, the House passed a budget deal that – despite taking money from federal workers’ pockets and leaving long-term unemployed in the lurch – was staunchly opposed by major right-wing groups. Among the critics was Tea Party stalwart and Kansas congressman Tim Huelskamp, whom Boehner kicked off the Budget Committee in an alleged purge last year. In an interview before the vote, Huelskamp charged that the deal “doesn’t avoid a government shutdown,” told Salon he hears rumors...

    Conservative Congressman Tim Huelskamp, one of three freshmen representatives ousted from top committee posts this week, slammed the House Republican leadership Thursday, and said that the purge was "a warning" to other members not to go against the party leaders on a fiscal cliff deal. "I think that was clearly a warning from leadership that 'We're watching your votes, and if you don't vote the way we like it, you might be punished like these three people,'" Huelskamp told Business Insider.

    Republican leaders in the U.S. House kicked U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp off the House Agriculture and House Budget committees this week – a move that dismayed many in the state’s powerful agriculture sector. In a statement on his congressional website, Huelskamp, R-Fowler, said he was given “limited explanation for his removal,” but that his “consistent, principled, and conservative votes have riled the GOP Establishment.” House Speaker John Boehner, in the midst of critical budget negotiations over the “fiscal cliff,” removed other conservatives from their committee posts as well – Justin Amash of Michigan from the House budget committee, and Reps....

    Washington Examiner ^ | Thursday, April 14, 2011 | MARK TAPSCOTT
    Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huekskamp will vote against the Obama-Boehner Continuing Resolution deal on 2011 spending. In a lengthy statement released late yesterday, Huelskamp, who also voted against the previous CR, explained why he will again go against the House GOP leadership: “The traditional laws of addition and subtraction must not apply in Washington. A deeper calculation of this spending ‘deal’ using figures available from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reveals that this actually only saves $352 million in direct spending," Huelskamp said. "With 308 million people in the United States, that’s a savings of $1.14 per person, enough...

    As the disheartening details continue to emerge about the $38 billion spending cut deal, and on the eve of a vote scheduled for Thursday, Republicans leaders are urging members to show party loyalty and vote for the bill. According to sources present at a GOP conference meeting Wednesday morning, House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) pressed members for support, saying that a vote against the CR would be “taking the easy way out.” That did not sit well with some freshman members, many of whom are particularly...

    Several of the people who showed up at Tuesday morning's town hall meeting with Rep. Tim Huelskamp were there to defend federal funding for programs they are involved with -- programs that are on the chopping block as Congress attempts to deal with a projected one-year deficit of more than $1 trillion. Yet when Huelskamp, a freshman Republican and former state senator from Fowler, asked for a show of hands of those who support raising the debt ceiling from $14.3 trillion, just five of the more than 70 people in the room raised their hands. That current debt ceiling will...

    The Hill ^ | 03/12/11 | Vicki Needham
    Freshmen Republicans in the House are increasingly worried that party leaders will back down on spending cuts and might oppose the latest bill to avoid a government shutdown, one lawmaker says. Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) said Saturday he will oppose a three-week continuing resolution from House Republicans to fund the government and signaled other freshmen may follow suit. The three-week spending bill "could be much harder to pass than the last one" because it fails to make the cuts needed to slash the deficit, Huelskamp told The Hill. The House is set to vote on the three-week bill Tuesday. It...

    In most of the contested Republican primaries held in three states last night, the winners were conservatives. The GOP nominations for open U.S. Senate seats in Kansas and Missouri, for example, were won by conservative Representatives Jerry Moran and Roy Blunt respectively.[...] In Moran’s 1st District, conservative State Sen. Tim Huelskamp topped a six-candidate field that included moderate realtor Tracey Mann and Rob Wasinger, Brownback’s longtime top aide. Huelskamp has been the premier spear-carrier for conservatives in the state legislature for several years, having been the leading sponsor of pro-marriage and transparency legislation and organizing Kansas foes of former Democratic...
