United States Congressman Thomas Massie announced in a press release on Saturday that he will not be voting for the re-election of House Speaker John Boehner next Tuesday and described the current House leadership as a “significant source” of dysfunction.

“During my first two years as a congressman I discovered a significant source of the dysfunction. I watched the House Leadership:

  •  Schedule a fiscal crisis in a lame duck session on the last legislative day before Christmas to get maximum leverage over rank and file members,
  •  Mislead members into thinking that a vote on an unpopular bill was postponed, only to then conduct a rushed voice vote on the $10 billion unfunded spending measure with fewer than a dozen members present,
  •  Give members less than 72 hours to read bills over 1,000 pages long, and
  • Remove members from committees simply because they voted for the principles upon which they campaigned.”

Massie’s press release also stated that “Washington no longer works for the people” and he will vote for a new House speaker on January 6th, but did not name who he would be voting for. Boehner will need at least 218 votes to secure his re-election. While a Caddell Associates survey showed that 60% of Republicans polled would choose someone other than Boehner, it is unclear how many Republicans will join Massie in voting for an alternative.
