H/T One Old VetH/T Daniel Horowitz’ valuable Twitter feed for alerting me to the news that the House GOP leadership has succeeded in imposing a minion to chair the Republican Study Committee, an entity which in the past has offered Boehner some opposition

Hence, they will look for every trick, loophole, and ploy to bid themselves more time and get out of the jam.Conservatives must be firm.

Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ) has circulated a letter requesting that any funding bill crafted in December “prohibit the use of funds by the administration for the use of current or future executive actions that would create additional work permits and green cards outside of the scope prescribed by Congress.”…Click here to see if your member signed Salmon letter and is committed to upholding his/her oath of office to abide by the Constitution.Salmon Draws a Line on the Border November 12th 2014No wonder Daniel Horowitz was repressed from RedState!
