Speaker Boehner has attempted to punish members of Congress whose votes have not been in line with party leadership. 

He stripped Congressman Mark Meadows of his subcommittee chairmanship because Meadows voted against a procedural motion on trade legislation.

Fortunately, people spoke out against the attack on Congressman Meadows and the decision to strip him of the subcommittee chairmanship was reversed.  In the words of Congressman Meadows, "The voice of the people still matters. ... It matters to me. It matters to members of Congress and we can't forget that.”

It is time to put a stop to the bullying of conservatives by their own party, because if we don’t speak out loud and clear, it WILL happen again. 

Please add your name to our petition and tell Speaker Boehner that Members of Congress should be able to vote in the interest of their constituents and their conscience without the threat of retribution from House leadership.

I expect Republicans to watch out for each other, not to punish those who disagree with you.

Every elected official is entitled & obligated to represent his constituents fairly & freely according to the Constitution. Put what is right & true above political manipulation.

Attention so-called Republican leadership. You will be leading nothing if you keep this up. There is no need to go along with policies you don’t believe in for any reason, especially not to ‘show you can work together.’ That’s not working together, it’s capitulating. It has gone on too long. No more of the we’ll get them next time. By now you should realize, as should have been evident from the start, that any of this, let alone continually doing this makes you look weak, foolish, and having no principles AT ALL. I do not and will not support you in this. Please feel free to contact me at any time to discuss my disgust and expectations for better. Check out what has gone on in this country in the last 6 years THAT YOU HAVE LET HAPPEN. You are as much to blame as the ones who thought the stuff up. You can’t point the finger at the opposition for any of this, if that is your game.

Republicans seem to think that the people who voted them in office shouldn’t voice their opinion. It is the Conservatives who listened when they were elected.

I will fund any effort to unseat you with a tea party candidate if you do not reverse course
