WASHINGTON – House Republican leaders have demoted another defiant colleague in their bid to impose party discipline on procedural votes.

Second-term Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina lost his subcommittee chairmanship shortly after Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur) expressed anger over rank-and-file Republicans voting against party-backed "rules" governing individual bills.

ADVERTISEMENT
Such votes traditionally divide along partisan lines and are seen as matters of party loyalty.

Meadows was among 34 Republicans who voted against a recent rule that allowed consideration of "fast track" trade negotiating powers for President Barack Obama. GOP leaders support the bill.

House oversight committee chairman Jason Chaffetz (CHAY'-fits) of Utah said he alone decided to remove Meadows as chairman of the Government Operations Subcommittee.

Meadows said in a statement: "No one should be punished for voting their conscience and representing their constituents."

Boehner's got to go. He's spineless along with being a worthless P.O.S.

"woohoo!!!! We've got the majority now!!!"
What have they done??? Absolutely nothing.
If anything, they're more pathetic now than when they were the minority.

That's the really sad part. We sent a message they disregarded it. Is that arrogance or what?

the upside for me, is that my buddy has been following our new rep (he replaced the coke-head we had - Trey Radel) and he's been voting EXACTLY as he said he would.
I wasn't real fond of him, though I did vote for him, but he's growing on me now.

No no no. It's far worse than that. They ran on the platform that they would make changes. The only reason they HAVE a majority is because they made promises. Now they reneg and betray the ones that put them in power.

Representation? Nah!

Aristocrats in history were beheaded for less than this.

The people are going to have to swallow it like it or not, this all a game
being saying this for since it all started.
little by little our leader will let us have it. The start seem a bit merkey
but that was so we can digest our anger over it. But we gonna have like it or not.
