Jim Jordan Running For Speaker... Jordan wants to radically change the power structure in the House

I am pleased that Jim Jordan is running for Speaker of the House. What a perfect choice. He is passionate about holding reps feet to the fire and actually "doing what they told the American people they would do"!

A day after announcing he will run for speaker of the House of Representatives after the November election, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio., was interviewed on “Fox & Friends” to discuss his candidacy for leadership.

Jordan highlighted many of the successes of the Trump administration, including tax cuts and regulatory reform, but pointed to many of Congress’ failures as evidence that a change in leadership is needed.

“Repeal Obamacare, reform welfare, build the border security wall, fix our immigration system, and control spending — we haven’t done that,” Jordan said.

“I think this is real simple,” he added. “We make the job of being a member of Congress way too difficult. It’s really basic. What did you tell the voters you were going to do? Let’s do that.”

Jordan was asked how, as a Freedom Caucus conservative, he planned to win the support of moderate Republicans to be elected speaker.

“Right now, there’s just a handful of people at the top who make all the decisions, and that’s not fair to the 435 members of the Congress, not fair to the 240 members of the Republican conference,” Jordan said.

“We all represent three-quarters of a million people, and when you’ve got a couple people at the top making all the decisions … that is not how the place is supposed to work.”

As an example, he mentioned how there are nine committee chairmanships that will be opened up next year for new members of Congress. He argued that the members on those committees, not a handful of leaders at the top, should be empowered to pick their committee chairmen.

Jim Jordan is one in congress that gives me hope. I wish they were all like him.

He's probably the most hated in DC next to Trump, which is why he doesn't stand a chance.  What are there...36 House Freedom Caucus members?

Obviously, not enough. 

I think we should all be asking those who are running in November, 'will you become an HFC member?'  And if they say no, ask them why not?  What's their problem with #DoWhatWeSaid?

House Freedom Caucus - Facebook

House Freedom Caucus - Twitter

What is the House Freedom Caucus, and who’s in it?

I admire members of the HFC, especially Jordan, and I'll advocate for them and urge others to do the same.

Unfortunately, I think you are right about Jordan being hated almost as much as Trump. I see him as one of us. A regular person that only wants the best for our country.

We should ask those running about becoming a Freedom Caucus member. The answers, or, non answers will speak volumes.

Check out the excitement in Ohio...
