FreedomWorks Backs House Effort to Remove Boehner Speakership

FreedomWorks announced its support today for House Resolution 385 submitted by Congressman Mark Meadows calling for the removal of John Boehner as Speaker of the House. FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“Every time defenders of freedom need a leader, John Boehner has failed us. It’s time to remove Boehner from the speakership before it’s too late to pass bold reforms. Under his speakership, the Republican-controlled House has allowed taxes and spending to increase and their agenda revolves more about pleasing lobbyists than standing on principle. It’s time to end the Boehner Blunder.”

Brandon continued, “We are proud to stand with Congressman Meadows in support of this resolution to remove Speaker Boehner. His courage and willingness to risk everything from committee placements to fundraising in order to do what’s right is an inspiration to us all. We will be there, alongside our millions of activists across the country, to support this effort.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Iris Somberg at
