Erik Erickson writing at Red State today has a shocking report pointing a finger at John Boehner and Eric Cantor and accusing them of undermining the effort to repeal Obamacare. Hat tip: Richard Falknor at Blue Ridge Forum.
Here is some of this must read post!
Eric Cantor and John Boehner — particularly Eric Cantor — have decided they don’t need or want conservatives and, more troubling, do not have any intention of trying to win at the polls by forcing Democrat hands on Obamacare.
Our leadership is behaving badly.
Last week and on Monday I mentioned Rep. Steve King’s effort to repeal Obamacare and start over. He’s filed a discharge petition. If he gets 218 signatures, Nancy Pelosi must hold a vote.
At the time, I was hearing that Eric Cantor was desperate to undermine Steve King’s efforts and, sure enough, he’s trying. Worse, he has John Boehner helping him.
Tea Party activists and others should pay attention here: Eric Cantor and John Boehner are implementing a strategy that makes it look like they are on your side, but are in fact stabbing you in the back.
I wasn’t as surprised to hear this as I might have been had I not happened to catch Sean Hannity’s interview with Ann Coulter and Pat Caddell yesterday on Hannity’s radio show. Did you hear it? Coulter and Caddell were both furious (mostly Ann) and stunned (Pat) that the Republican establishment is seemingly undercutting conservatives and Tea Party types in hot races throughout the country.
