(The Brenner Brief) Since the election, we’ve seen speculation and ‘what if’ scenarios. Many have expressed their varying opinions on what could have been done differently and what we need to change as a party going forward. For many Republicans, standing firm to our underlying principles and not compromising to the point of sacrificing those principles is at the top of the list.
John Boehner is under intense scrutiny right now, as many feel he is falling into the trap of sacrificing those very principles conservatives hold dear, and going a step beyond that by ‘purging’ conservatives from powerful committees.
One of those conservatives that was purged was the young Justin Amash. Amash has been a vocal libertarian Republican since he was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2010. He has garnered tremendous support from tea partiers and libertarians because of his transparency and willingness to fully explain his votes via his Facebook page. Representative Amash has also been known to interact directly with his constituents via Facebook.
As of this writing, Rep. Amash has still received no official word regarding his removal from the House Budget Committee.
