The Wrong Team for Conservatives

For lawmakers on the right, there's little upside to joining the whip operation.

WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 29:   Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ) (C) speaks during a news conference to introduce a GOP-sponsored Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac reform plan with Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ) (L) and Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) at the U.S. Capitol March 29, 2011 in Washington, DC. In the form of eight bills, the House Republican legislation would work toward shrinking the taxpayer-backed mortgage giants' role in the housing market by reducing their mortgage investments and end requirements that direct a portion of their business to low- and moderate-income housing, among other reforms.  (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) *** Local Caption *** David Schweikert;Scott Garrett;Randy Neugebauer
