Hes an antiTrump RINO swamper who supported Ted Cruz. The people of this district need to boot him.

Not sure if Amash has been in the Never-Trump faction, but those are some harsh comments.

Yeah, I believe he is the co-owner of that business in China. When is he up for re-election?

He’s a member of the House of Representatives. Only a 2 year term and they’re all up for re-election in 2020.

I lived in Amash's district for awhile and regardless of what you think of him (by my measure he is a bit of an odd duck) he is every bit the wonk as far as fleshing out legalities and their implications. If the man sees an inconsistency or flaw in the law and its application, he'll call it out and is usually spot on with the analysis.

For that he's earned the respect of those in the district, both the "Gerald Ford" Republicans (of which that are many in the Grand Rapids area) and the more liberal elements of the community as evidenced by his usual wins by 10% or more. I think he also commands a similar respect from many of his House colleagues.

That's why his tweet comments are hard to dismiss as someone out with an ax to grind or pandering for votes.

And hes already drawn a primary opponent.

He knew that this was coming and said his piece anyway.

Whether you agree with him politically or not, you have to admire his principles.

Absolutely right on target!


The repub party had better realize they do not exist without supporting Trump.


Idiots failed after 7 years to present a healthcare solution!


Never trumpers think they represent the repub party????????


Wait until next election!


Never Trumpers are as oblivious to reality as the democrat party and media propaganda machine.

If “Gerald Ford Republicans” are Midwestern centrists, I thought they no longer existed.

They sound like comments from a smart and principled lawmaker!
