FirstAmash thinks he represents the American people, not his district. Next he says there's too much partisan politics. Oh really? That's the exact opposite of what Ron Paul says. But I thought the purge was over him being too conservative. Looks like Boehner was wrong about him, at least when it come to the bi-partisan tax increases.
Below is a clip of an interview Geraldo Rivera conducted with Amash. Note that towards the end of the interview Amash talks about tax rates being part of the fiscal cliff discussion, clearly meaning increases in tax rates. Holte is right, Amash is an ally of Boehner, when it comes to taxes.
Also note how much emphasis Amash puts on "balancing the budget," versus Murray Rothbard's view that deficits are not a bad as tax increases of any kind.
