Attack on Conservative Congressman Backfires

Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) was punished for opposing President Obama’s trade powers, but he fought back and won.

I have some great news to share.

Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) has been reinstated as subcommittee chairman on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee after being stripped of the position for voting against Obamatrade.

Thanks to the support of thousands of freedom-loving Americans across the country, Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) announced that he would reverse his earlier decision to punish Meadows.

This is a major victory that was won for two reasons:

First, rather than backing down, Congressman Meadows fought back. When asked to resign his post, he refused and made Chaffetz fire him. Then he went public and vowed not to back down.

“There is no honor in bowing to a bully,” Meadows said. “There is only honor in fighting a good fight –win or lose. This is not a fight I will back down from.”

Second, people in North Carolina and across the country spoke out against these attacks and supported Congressman Meadows.

SCF set up the GoFundMeadows.com website to bundle contributions for the congressman, and as of this morning, more than $27,000 has been contributed to his campaign!!

Conservatives won this battle, but the war is far from over.

House Republican leaders will be even more motivated now to hurt Congressman Meadows, and they’re planning to punish other conservatives in the coming weeks.

According to a report published by POLITICO:

Top Republicans warn that the punishment for dissenters will get worse. They should expect no fundraising help, no prime committee posts and no trips abroad if they don’t help the Republican team.

And top GOP aides and lawmakers, speaking anonymously to discuss internal conversations, say they will continue to encourage a crackdown against lawmakers who try to sabotage their ability to bring legislation to the House floor.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) believes that every Republican is obligated to do the following three things:

  • Vote for him for Speaker;
  • Vote to bring bills to the floor even if those bills violate clearly established conservative principles; and
  • Donate money to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) so he can elect more spineless Republicans.

If a Republican congressman refuses as a matter of principle to do all three things, Speaker Boehner believes that congressman should be punished.

If you haven’t donated to Congressman Meadows, please do so now.

His party’s leaders will continue to look for ways to retaliate against him, and we need to keep strengthening him so these tactics backfire.

Thank you for supporting principled leaders like Congressman Meadows.
