Mark Levin was livid on Friday when he reported on a proposal by House Republicans to severely punish anyone who votes against Boehner for House Speaker.
This proposal isn’t just about Boehner, but would affect all future House Speaker nominees who are chosen by a majority of the House Republicans when the leadership elections are held in November. Any Republican who subsequently votes in January against the nominee chosen by the establishment in November will be stripped of all committee assignments.
Why are they doing this? To prevent a challenge by House Republicans who are unhappy with the nominee chosen. And this time it’ll be Boehner again.
