On Friday, Twitchy erupted in a call to fire John Boehner and draft SC Republican Trey Gowdy as Speaker of the House. As of this posting there are 2,396 signatures on the website Petition2Congress to remove Boehner and replace him with the fierce Gowdy.
Conservatives are angry at Boehner for playing footsie with Democrats and spearheading the passage of the $1.1 trillion CRomnibus bill—a complicated 1600-page bill designed to prevent another government shutdown. The bill passed by a relatively narrow margin, 219-206. Only 67 House Republicans voted no. Boehner wasn’t one of them.

Bills like CRomnibus, crafted in darkness and presented as must-pass legislation, allow the special interests to get what they want. A free and open debate on these issues is what this country needs.
