Wednesday on NewsMax TV’s “America’s Forum,” Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is reconsidering his revenge removal of Reps. Daniel Webster (R-FL) and Richard Nugent (R-FL) from the Rules Committee for opposing him in his successful third term as Speaker of the House.
The congressman from Iowa and member of the House Judiciary Committee said, “Well let me say the speaker is going to reconsider that action and we will see how that comes out. It will take a few hours to get this result. I don’t think they will let it sit for very long. I can understand why the speaker needs people he can count on, on the Rules Committee. We know how that system works, but you don’t kick them off for voting their conscience on a constitutional vote on the floor.”
