Conservatives Outraged at Firing of RSC Executive Director
The war against the establishment has just gone to the next level. Little do they know the jobs they will lose in the primaries next year.
Check it out:
Tensions between the Republican establishment and conservative movement reached a fever pitch Wednesday after House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) attacked conservative groups and a long-time Capitol Hill staffer lost his job as executive director of the Republican Study Committee.
Those developments brought a swift response from the Conservative Action Project, which released a letter signed by more than 50 conservative leaders expressing outrage at Boehner’s remarks and the firing of Paul Teller from his leadership post at the RSC.
We are saddened and outraged that an organization that purports to represent conservatives in Congress would dismiss a staff member for advancing conservatism and working with conservatives outside of Congress. Given this action, and the earlier comments by the Speaker, it is clear that the conservative movement has come under attack on Capitol Hill today.
