Boehner to Resign from Congress


John Boehner’s decision to resign the Speakership reflects his own recognition that he was out of step with the base of the Republican Party, and is a victory for the millions of grassroots conservatives who worked tirelessly to elect conservatives to control the Congress. Tea Party Patriots – which is far more closely in touch with the American people than the GOP leadership in their “Fortress Capitol Hill” – has been working since 2012 to elect a congressional leadership that reflects America’s values: personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future.

What Tea Party Patriots want in the leadership of the GOP – in both chambers of Congress – are men and women who will stand up and fight the Obama Administration’s never-ending efforts to “fundamentally transform” our nation into a country our Founders would not recognize. Individual liberty, constitutionally limited government, and free markets – these are the bedrock values that made our nation the most successful the world has ever seen, and the principles to which we must adhere if we are to ensure that future generations enjoy the freedom and prosperity that was handed to us.

To all of those who made the phone calls, and showed up at congressional offices, and made the contributions necessary to support the effort to #FireTheSpeaker, we thank you. Your sacrifices have been rewarded, and we ask you now to turn your attention to the other side of the Capitol Dome — is now live.
