Kevin McCarthy could be the worst Speaker of the House of Representatives ever as he urges House Republicans to support a government funding plan. Twelve of them immediately opposed it.
Republicans in the House of Representatives continued to work behind closed doors on Capitol Hill on Wednesday as they tried to find a plan they could rally behind that would keep the government funded and prevent a looming government shutdown.
McCarthy and his GOP leadership team have been trying to sell the House Republican Conference on uniting behind a plan to fund the government, brokered this weekend between the House Freedom Caucus and the more moderate Main Street Caucus . But that proposed legislation faced immediate opposition from more than a dozen far-right Republican lawmakers who wanted deeper cuts.
If McCarthy gets help from the Democrats to pass a government spending bill, the MAGAs in his caucus will make a motion to fire him and remove him from the presidency. open, a dozen or more Republicans in the House of Representatives immediately oppose it.
Kevin McCarthy cast himself as one of the worst speakers in American history by giving away all his power to get the gavel. He was given the gavel, but now he no longer has the ability to prevent the out-of-control freight train, which has been closed by the government, from damaging the country.
Funding the government is the House of Representatives’ most fundamental job, and Republicans have failed.
It appears that McCarthy cannot do the bare minimum of his job, making him one of the worst Speakers of the House of Representatives in American history.
