These Staffers are permanent on the Hill, whereas individual congressmen come and go, so their analysis carries weight.

House Freedom Caucus Looks to Be Force in Leadership and Lawmaking

It’s an early bit of obstructionist momentum that worries some mainstream Republicans, who fear the faction is less about imparting a conservative vision and more about preventing anything from getting done.

“They’re not legislators, they’re just assholes,” a senior GOP aide told CQ Roll Call. “These guys have such a minority mindset that the prospect of getting something done just scares them away, or pisses them off.”


The aide said the Republican Study Committee, a larger and more established collection of conservatives, had shown some willingness to work with leadership. “So the fact that the RSC can’t be the ‘no’ caucus, they have to create their own ‘no’ caucus.”


The aide said the HFC — a collection of “the craziest of the crazy” — was obviously a repudiation of the current RSC.
