Quote of the Day: Justin Amash on purge of House conservatives
House conservatives have found themselves in trouble over the last couple of days simply because they believe Republicans should govern on the principles on which they run during campaigns. As you may have read, Republican leadership is coming down hard on fiscal conservatives by removing them from committee assignments. However, it seems that they’re not bothering to tell them.
During today’s Bloggers Briefing at the Heritage Foundation, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) explained (via Julie Borowski) that he learned of his removal from the important House Budget Committee from the newspaper.
“I had to read that I was removed from Budget Committee from the newspaper. No one in leadership contacted me” - @repjustinamash.

Keep in mind that these are duly elected members of the House of Representatives. Wow. Stay classy, John Boehner.
