    Boehner and his business allies will go up against groups such as Heritage Action and the Club for Growth, the newspaper reported.

    “I don’t know of anybody in the business community who takes the side of the Taliban minority,” said Dirk Van Dongen, longtime chief lobbyist for the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors.
    Boehner Business Allies Take On Tea Party

    Business lobbyists loyal to House Speaker John Boehner are reportedly ready to take sides in a few GOP primary races against tea party candidates.

    The races will target races in Michigan, Idaho and Alabama, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

    The Boehner loyalists say they're worried he now has a shaky hold over his caucus, The Post reported.

    “I don’t think [lobbyists] are going to push John to commit suicide as a political leader,” said John Motley, a longtime lobbyist and former vice president of legislative affairs at the National Federation of Independent Business. “It’s more important to have him there than to not have him there.”

    In the races in three states, Boehner and his business allies will go up against groups such as Heritage Action and the Club for Growth, the newspaper reported.

    I don’t know of anybody in the business community who takes the side of the Taliban minority,” said Dirk Van Dongen, longtime chief lobbyist for the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors.

    In Michigan, where Rep. Justin Amash -- who had been challenging Boehner during the debt-ceiling fight -- is facing a possible challenge from a business-backed candidate.

    Business lobbyists also talk about funding a challenge to another tea-party-backed Republican incumbent, Michigan Rep. Kerry Bentivolio.

    Another area for possible combat occurs in a special election next month in the 1st District of Alabama, where former state senator Bradley Byrne, a self-described business-oriented Republican, faces off against Dean Young, a tea party-endorsed candidate who says he’s “against homosexuals pretending that they are married.”

    It's not the first report of tea party revolt that will reverberate in upcoming elections.

    There are signs 80 House members who signed a letter to Boehner urging him to tie financing the government to defunding Obamacare, and at least some will be facing a political backlash in their districts.

    These people IMO are hurting America they buy votes to bring in illegal cheap labor while shipping other manufacturing out of country, this is a disaster folks and no end in sight, this is the reason they fear true Conservatives and tea party people. The open border crowd(RINO's) in the GOP continue to hurt the country while the left does the same thing pouring out billions of dollars in welfare. We must vote out Boehner and his band of progressive business people who are destroying America.

    CPAC Organizers Make Statement With Boehner Snub

    We expect to encounter any number of conservatives, libertarians, Tea Partiers and, yes, a few token RINOs invited to speak at this year’s CPAC conference, which we’ll be covering from the floor of the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Md.

    But one person we know we won’t be running into is House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). Nobody bothered asking him to come.
