This week, Congressman Paul Ryan was sworn in as the new Speaker of the House. While we have our concerns with Ryan, it was a long fought battle to remove John Boehner as Speaker – going all the way back to 2012. We had two major victories in forcing Boehner to resign and then making Kevin McCarthy pull his name from the Speaker race. For that, we have a lot to be proud of.

 

Moving forward we are going to do everything we can to hold Speaker Ryan accountable and to do everything in our power to make sure he upholds the promises that he made to House conservatives to reform the House and decentralize the power structure. Make sure you sign our petition to hold Paul Ryan accountable.

 

Then make sure you thank the following conservative leaders for all they did to help remove John Boehner as Speaker of the House.
