Voters Feel ‘Betrayed’ By GOP In a new report in the Washington Times, a popular radio talk-show host reveals that voters feel betrayed by the GOP establishment.

One of the reasons that also launched a “Dump Boehner Now” letter writing campaign that allows voters to reach every single Republican House member with hard copy letters with FedEx delivery guaranteed. So far, 575,000 have been delivered in two months, telling GOP House members to find another House Speaker.
The issue with the GOP is that voters spoke loudly and clearly during the 2014 mid-terms, when they gave the GOP a bigger majority in the House and control of the Senate, on amnesty and Obamacare. Essentially, they didn’t like or want either. But within weeks of the sweeping victory, House Speaker John Boehner and others agreed to continue funding Obamacare and amnesty into 2015.
The Times explained, “Conservatives saw it as raising a white flag when Republican congressional leaders pledged not to withhold funding for the Department of Homeland Security in the fight over President Obama’s deportation amnesty, stoking fears that for the next two years House Speaker John A. Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will consistently surrender. For the Republican base, Mr. Obama’s unilateral move to grant legal status and work permits for up to 5 million illegal immigrants was an unlawful power grab that created a constitutional crisis.”
Boehner fought off a rebellion at the beginning of January when he was faced with a couple dozen members of his own party who wouldn’t support him in his re-election bid to be House Speaker.
