Congressman Dave Brat (VA-7th District) added his name today to the growing list of House reps who will not support John Boehner as Speaker of the US House of Representatives in Tuesday’s election.

If you’re like me and are interested to know where Congressman Randy Forbes stands on this vote, please give him a call tomorrow and ask that exact question. I’d really like to know.

There are options now, with Reps. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas and Ted Yoho, R-Florida. Of the two, Gohmert is much more “tea party” than Yoho, so I’m urging Forbes to support Gohmert.

You can email too, for good measure.

Snippet of Brat’s comments:

Whoever runs for the Republican leadership of the U.S. House on Tuesday must communicate on paper how Congress is going to lead on the big issues. The American people elected us to solve trillion-dollar problems, not to kick the can down the road with only symbolic votes. My district expects any leader to clearly outline bold solutions on the major issues of our day, such as:

· How he or she will defend the Constitution and challenge President Obama’s repeated illegal overreach into areas of congressional authority, particularly his unconstitutional amnesty by presidential decree;
· How he will end Washington’s out-of-control spending and debt addiction that is mortgaging our children’s future and promises to cripple our economy within the next decade;
· How he will defund Obamacare to stop skyrocketing insurance premiums on struggling families as well as the destruction of jobs it’s causing;
· How he will stop excessive regulations like the EPA’s overregulation of farms and small businesses – regulations that have made it prohibitively expensive to run a business and create jobs.

These are not just my priorities. These are the priorities that the American people expressed loudly and clearly on November 4th. And these need to be the priorities of the leaders of this next Congress.
