52 tea party Republicans stood against Boehner — and Obama’s amnesty; here they are

With 52 members of his own party rejecting a short-term funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security, one could say the deck was stacked against House Speaker John Boehner.

The House voted Friday 224-203 against a measure put forth by GOP leadership to continue current DHS funding without explicit limitations on paying for President Obama’s overreaching executive amnesty.

Boehner4“It does not make any difference whether the funding is for three weeks, three months or a full fiscal year,” said U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala. “If it’s illegal, it’s illegal!”

The outcome prompted Boehner loyalist U.S. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., to lash out against the conservative wing of his own party who are seeking to defund Obama’s potentially unconstitutional amnesty programs.

“I’ve had it with this self-righteous, delusional wing of the party,” King said in an appearance on MSNBC.

(With the midnight hour approaching — DHS funding was set to expire at the end of the day — the Senate passed a stop-gap measure to continue funding for another week, which the House supported.)
