Here's a Surprise: Republican Congressman Claims the Republican Leadership Lied to Him To Get His Vote for the Cromnibus

I know, I know. I just rocked your world.

Your world is spinning. You just can't believe it.

Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN) says that House GOP leadership--he hasn't identified anyone in particular--duped him into switching his vote on the procedural measure that set up the 1,774-page, $1.1 trillion cromnibus spending bill backed by House Speaker John Boehner and President Barack Obama to pass.

...

Stutzman says he switched his vote on the floor because House GOP leadership--again, he doesn't name anyone: whether it was Boehner himself, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Majority Whip Steve Scalise or an aide--promised him that if the rule passed, the cromnibus would be replaced by a short-term spending measure. This Continuing Resolution (CR) would last until early next year when the newly elected GOP majority in the Senate takes over.

"Earlier today, I supported the Rule because I was informed by Leadership that the CROmnibus was dead and a short term CR would take its place," Stutzman said in the statement. "I was very surprised and even more disappointed to see the CROmnibus back on the floor. The American people deserve better."

Some people are claiming this is all false-- but interestingly, they claim it's false that John Boehner told Stutzman this. It's left open whether anyone else might have tod Stutzman this tall tale.

Nonetheless, other highly-connected Capitol Hill sources who wished to remain anonymous say there is an element of truth to what Stutzman is saying...

"I heard about the promise from several sources, and Stutzman wasn't the only one to whom it was made. He was just the only one who bought it," said one highly-connected Capitol Hill source.

I do think conservatives should seriously consider my suggestion that we pick 10 or 12 (I'm upping the number) Republican Congressmen and absolutely tank them in 2016. First, they get a primary, and if the primary fails to dislodge them, we give the seat to the Democrats. We actively vote for the Democrat. Whatever happens, we retire their asses.
