GOP Purity Test Gets Mixed Grades, Even From Conservatives
Conservative activists in the Republican Party are pushing a proposal to deny funding to GOP candidates who fail what is being called a purity test, a move that is being met with skepticism by some Republican commentators.
The proposal, being pushed by 10 Republican National Committee members, calls for money to be withheld from candidates who disagree with more than two of 10 conservative principles.
The RNC will debate the idea at its winter meeting in January.
Among the principles on the test are support of limited government, market-based health care reform, legal immigration, gun rights and military-recommended troop surges in Iraq and Afghanistan. The list also requires opposing Obama's domestic policies, including his $787 billion stimulus bill, climate change legislation and his signature health care reform plan.
So what do you think about this?
Is this a chance to retake the GOP from the RINO's or is it a risky move that will keep Republicans from getting elected.?
