    Raise the curtain.

    And Then There Was One

    Just one Michigan Congessman had the guts and stood tall.

    Below the fold

    From Eric Ericson of RedState:

    Sixteen Republicans voted against the rule on the continuing resolution. Sixteen.Only sixteen Republicans voted to defund Obamacare.That's what this vote was about.

    I actually thought we would get about eight.

    Sixteen is a good number.It is progress toward getting conservatives comfortable again defying bad leadership that is so afraid of losing it has stopped trying to win.

    Several of these congressmen have other ambitions. Two who surprised me were Phil Gingrey and Jack Kingston of Georgia, who I suspect did not want to get beaten up on the radio tonight on the nationfs most listened to talk station, which so happens to be in Atlanta with a microphone I control during drive time.

    Others are standing up too.

    I will have the full list below, but RedState and other conservatives and the media should take notice of the Conservative Fight Club shaping up in the House of Representatives. There are ten members of the Conservative Fight Club. They are the nine members of the House Republican Conference who voted against the rule on the continuing resolution and voted against John Boehner for Speaker plus one guy who voted against todayfs rule and was the ring leader the last time the GOP took out a Speaker.

    The ten members of the Conservative Fight Club are:

     ¡ Amash
     ¡ Bridenstine
     ¡ Broun
     ¡ Gohmert
     ¡ Huelskamp
     ¡ Jones
     ¡ Massie
     ¡ Pearce
     ¡ Salmon
     ¡ Yoho

    These congressmen are now the gold standard for conservatives in the House. They replace men like Jim Jordan and Tom Graves. Matt Salmon, who has been urging conservatives to vote down rules, is rapidly becoming a conservative leader in Congress. Though he did not vote against John Boehner, history shows he helped lead the movement to oust Newt Gingrich back in the day.

    Hefs finding his footing again and it is a very good thing.

    The other congressmen who stood with the Fight Club are:

     ¡ Brooks
     ¡ Fleming
     ¡ Gingrey
     ¡ Kingston
     ¡ McClintock
     ¡ Rohrabacher

    They should all be commended.

    Senator Ted Cruz is declaring he'll take this fight to the Senate now and will object to John Boehner's continuing resolution.

    Sincerely yours,

    Erick Erickson

    Sen. Cruz, has an ally (none / 0) (#1)
    by Corinthian Scales on Wed Mar 06, 2013 at 09:09:11 PM EST
    Sen. Mike Lee, has stepped forward with Cruz, to fight Boehner's Obamination.

    Just to note, the original 30 who are at time of posting as the "gold standard 16," were in fact parred down to 14.

    OABTW - I'm so shocked my rep. DOCTOR Benishemp rolled with funding Obamacare.

    It's been real Dan, and it's been fun - but it sure hasn't been real fun.

    Good luck in '14.

    No surprise about (none / 0) (#2)

    Amash standing up for principles.  Dr Dan is a joke and has proved himself to be the establishment lackey that rode the wave of TEA in 2010.  

    Low addiction threshold to the $ waved in front of him and the lack of spine when the Republican caucus presses in for his support has proven him worthless to the cause of liberty.
