Business Leaders in Michigan are Fundraising to Take Down Justin Amash

The Hill reports:
Business leaders are plotting to take down Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) as part of a broader effort to punish lawmakers over the government shutdown.

In a letter obtained by The Hill, prominent Michigan donors request financial backing for Amash’s primary challenger, Brian Ellis. Seven individuals, including prominent Michigan businessmen Mark Bissell, J.C. Huizenga and Mike Jandernoa, signed the fundraising plea.

They argue that Amash “and others have effectively nullified the Republican majority in the U.S. House.”
Amash leaks from libertarian principle, but he is one of the most libertarian members of Congress. The establishment can't stand him.

Mark Bissell is third generation owner of  Bissell Home Care Inc., which sells more vacuums and floor cleaners than any other company in the world. J. C. Huizenga is the son of Wayne Huizenga, the billionaire who founded Waste Management, Inc., and runs government funded "private" schools. Michael J. Jandernoa,  has been a director of Perrigo since January 1981 and has served as the Chair of the Compensation Committee since October 2007. He served as Perrigo's Chief Executive Officer from February 1988 through April 2000 and as Chairman of the Board from October 1991 to August 2003. Perrigo Company is a leading global provider of  affordable healthcare products

  1. "They argue that Amash “and others have effectively nullified the Republican majority in the U.S. House.”

    WTF? I seems to me that Harry Reid, Barack Obama and John Boehner are the real culprits on that charge. It looks like the crony capitalist trust fund fat cats who own the Republican party want The House to be nothing more than a rubber stamp for the ruling elite. That is why Krispy Kreme Christie will be the Republican presidential nominee in 2016. The fat cats will see to that and the rank and file will go along like proper little drones. Can you say Madam President?
