Report: Justin Amash among 'rebellious' GOP reps booted from key U.S. House panels

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, R-Cascade Township, was booted from the House Budget Committee, potentially for past votes against key pieces of legislation promoted by his party, according to capitol newspaper Roll Call.

Amash, who last month won a second term in Congress, was among several Republican lawmakers shuffled to other committees for breaking with party leadership, Roll Call reported.

The newspaper cited anonymous sources who claimed Amash and the others were removed from key committees because House leaders are hoping to put the "fractious" caucus in order.

Amash spokesman Will Adams declined to comment on Roll Call's report because his office had yet to receive Amash's official assignments.

Man, didn't they learn anything?

Don't they know they just insulted all the voters in Amash's district, and all of us here, on DP?

We have to call to let them

know how much we do not appreciate them booting our public servants and their opinions from our fiscal political meetings. Our numbers need to be made known to them.


If he is still asleep, then we need to wake him up with truth and reason. Momentum is building, and we shouldn't stop at every opportunity to let them hear our constitutional voices.


Justin Is MY Rep

And he is doing what I sent him there for!

Hi from Mt Pleasant MI!

Good job on getting Justin Amash to DC.... Let's just hope people start to show him some respect


and his boys are not interested in small government.


His drunken binges have turned him into a libtard.
