Trailing right behind Congressman Jordan as the most conservative members in the U.S. House are three other House members from Ohio....
From the Columbus Dispatch --
A new survey by National Journal magazine in Washington, lists four Republicans from Ohio as among the 10 most conservative members of the U.S. House.Congressman Jim Jordan is Chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC). As Chairman of the RSC, Congressman Jordan has been leading the fight to cut spending. And, as a way to NOT raise the debt ceiling and NOT default on the Debt, Congressman Jordan and his fellow RSC members have introduced HR 421 the Full Faith and Credit Act, (click here to read).
Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Urbana, earned a tie for first by voting the conservative position 95 percent of the time on 100 key House votes last year. He was followed by Rep. Jean Schmidt, R-Loveland, with 94.5 percent; House Speaker John Boehner, R-West Chester, with 94.2 percent, and Rep. Bob Latta, R-Bowling Green, with 94 percent.
While we may have 4 of the most conservative members in the U.S. House, it appears one of the freshmen Congressman from OH is already forgetting why he was sent to D.C.!
OH Freshman Congressman Steve Stivers (OH-15), in siding with the GOP establishment and helping the Democrats, was one of 95 GOP House members to turn a deaf ear on the voices that elected him to cut spending and voted AGAINST an RSC Amendment that would have made an additional $22 Billion in cuts in the Continung Resolution. Because this amendment failed the GOP led House did not meet their pledged cuts of $100 Billion.
Please contact Rep. Steve Stivers and remind him of "why" he was elected to his first term in Congress --
