The fight over the four congressmen (Reps. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) and Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) from the House Budget Committee, Reps. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) and Walter Jones (R-N.C.) from Financial Services Committee) booted from committee positions for, they say, being uncooperative with the GOP on spending (wanting to cut it too much) is getting personal.
Amash tells House Speaker John Boehner that he is not welcome in Amash’s Michigan:
“If Speaker Boehner wants to come back to my district, he’s not going to be met with very much welcome,” Amash told reporters this afternoon.
Amash, who was elected in 2010, was recently booted off of the budget committee by House Republicans. Amash blames Boehner for orchestrating his removal.
Amash added that he has little faith in Boehner’s negotiating tactics.
