Does This Look Like a Party Serious About Spending Cuts?

As noted on Reason 24/7, several conservatives in the House have been removed from seats on the House Budget and House Financial Services Committees.

Reps. David Schweikert of Arizona and Walter Jones of North Carolina were booted from the Financial Services Committee. Reps. Justin Amash of Michigan and Tim Huelskamp of Kansas were removed from the Budget Committee.

There is no dream to fix the economy, just buying votes here.

If what Doug reported was correct, the State GOP's are hugely financed by the federal reserve members and future state positions will be sold to the highest qualifying bidder.

b*t*c about there being no difference between the Republican and Democratic Parties. But, if we don't do anything to CREATE the difference, the likes of Boehner won't. Let's let the Republucan leadership know fiscal Conservatives haven't died or left the country and don't plan to any time soon.
