On Thursday, the Tea Party Patriots said House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is declaring war against Americans who put him in power to reduce the deficit.
Boehner has criticized conservative groups during two straight press conferences.
“Frankly, I just think they’ve lost all credibility,” Boehner told reporters on Thursday, slamming Tea Party groups that opposed the budget deal that would do away with the sequester.
Martin added that Boehner’s “anger and ire is misdirected towards the wrong people,” because “President Obama is choosing whether to enforce laws in the country or not by whim.” She then stated that “Members of Congress renege on their pledges not to spend more or increase taxes on hardworking Americans.”
“Frankly, Mr. Speaker, continuously making promises and then breaking them is how you lose credibility with the American people,” Martin said. “Pitting your colleagues against their constituents is how you lose credibility with your conference. Not upholding conservative principles is how you lose credibility with the voters who will find someone else if you are not willing to do your job.”
