RINOs Trying to Trample Freedom Caucus Agenda

‘An amendment that would ensure all members of the Republican Conference are able to participate in conference meetings was rejected...’

(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) RINOs from GOP rejected six out of eight House Freedom Caucus rules changes that have been considered so far, according to Just the News.

Among the amendments that failed was a requirement that spending bills must pass before the fiscal year officially begins on Oct. 1. If spending bills are not passed, other legislation would not be considered on the floor.

“An amendment that would ensure all members of the Republican Conference are able to participate in conference meetings was rejected, and a rule change to allow one member, with the support of 25 others, to request having one Republican staffer admitted to conference meetings also failed,” Just the News reported.

“In addition, House GOP leadership rejected an amendment that would have allowed committee members to elect their own chairmen.”

“The two amendments that passed were related to prohibiting steering committee members, except elected leadership, from serving on the executive committee of the National Republican Congressional Committee and reopening House grounds to the public again after access was limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020,” the publication added.

However, many other rule changes were proposed by the House Freedom Caucus that are supposed to be formally considered after the Thanksgiving break is over and members will return to Capitol Hill.

Among the outstanding amendments that are still yet to be considered is the reimplementation of the Holman Rule, which is supposed to strip the salaries of people who work in the federal government, if they are not cooperating with existing law.

“Democrats eliminated the ‘Holman Rule’ when they took the House because it allows members to make targeted spending cuts in appropriations funding bills by slashing the funding of specific federal programs or cutting the salaries of individual federal employees (e.g., Dr. Anthony Fauci),” an official House Freedom Caucus summary of their desired rules changes reported.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and other conservatives suggested that Holman Rule should be used to defund Jack Smith the special counsel that the Department of Justice appointed this week to investigate Donald Trump.
