Mike Simpson Supports Surrender to Harry Reid

Republicans are finally unified in fighting the egregious stubbornness of President Obama and Senator Harry Reid.  As they actively shut down memorials that don’t need to close, and refuse to fund veterans affairs simply for the purpose of protecting every penny of funding for Obamacare, House Republicans are standing strong.

Naturally, a Republican from Idaho would uphold Idaho values in the fight against Obamacare and the liberals.  Yet Rep. Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), an ally of Speaker Boehner, announced today that he would support Harry Reid’s budget bill funding Obamacare.  Hence, he supports unconditional surrender.

This is par for the course with Simpson.  As we’ve noted before, Simpson has supported abortion, amnesty, bailouts, wasteful spending, and tax increases.  He has never been down for the struggle against Obamacare, and at least today he decided to be candid about his beliefs.

It is clear this is a coordinated move by GOP House Leadership and specifically Speaker John Boehner. It is no secret that Mike Simpson is part of John Boehner’s inner circle and in spite of his liberal voting record, was one of the first incumbents to be graced with Boehner’s endorsement this election cycle.

This is why we were proud to endorse Tea Party conservative Bryan Smith against Mike Simpson earlier this month.  Let’s help Bryan oust this ‘white flag Republican.’
