House leadership retaliation against conservatives

GOP Leadership Retaliation Against Conservatives Continues

Conservative freshman Congressman Alex Mooney of West Virginia is the latest Member of Congress who voted against the rule for Obama’s Trade Promotion Authority bill to face retaliation from the House leadership. In a letter obtained by The Hill, Mooney accused Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) of deliberately excluding him as a co-sponsor of a bill to help Medicare-eligible diabetes patients gain coverage for glucose monitors.
