    McCarthy Responds To Possibly Being Removed Over GOP Debt Ceiling Dissatisfaction

    Published on

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has encountered opposition from the most reactionary faction of the Republican Party in the wake of rumors of an impending agreement on the debt ceiling following negotiations with President Joe Biden.

    According to a report published by the Washington Examiner on Saturday, the California Republican is unconcerned about a prospective motion to resign over the disagreements.

    In January, McCarthy confronted a difficult situation in which he was required to endure 15 votes in order to obtain the gavel. To win over opponents, he agreed to lower the threshold for a motion to vacate to a single vote, which means that any member dissatisfied with the proposed debt limit agreement has the ability to remove him from office.

    “Not at all worried,” McCarthy said when he was asked about the possibility

    The Examiner also observed:

    Concerned that Republicans did not make sufficient gains, a cacophony of conservatives from the far right flank of the GOP caucus have come out in opposition to the recent debt limit framework agreement negotiated on Saturday night. Nonetheless, the GOP leadership believes that a substantial majority of House Republicans will support it.

    McCarthy has pledged to provide members with 72 hours to examine the debt limit legislation text. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen recently moved the “X-date” for when the government runs out of money to pay all its obligations to June 5, allowing Congress sufficient time to approve the deal.

    The agreement calls for a two-year increase in the debt ceiling in exchange for the cancellation of unspent COVID-19 funds, significant reductions in annual spending growth, stricter labor requirements for social programs, and other provisions.

    Despite the fact that Congress has not yet been presented with a definitive version of the negotiations and alleged agreement, a number of conservative Republicans have expressed concern and opposition over what they perceive to be problematic aspects of the negotiations and alleged agreement.

    “There are members of the GOP claiming Democrats got nothing from the ‘deal.’ Oh really? 1) An uncapped debt ceiling with an expiration date – worth approximately $4 trillion…? 2) basically no cuts – a freeze at bloated 2023 spending level?” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), a House Freedom Caucus member, tweeted. “ZERO claw back of the $1.2 Trillion ‘inflation reduction act’ crony giveaways to elite leftists for grid-destroying unreliable energy…? 4) 98% of the IRS expansion left fully in place…? 5) no work requirements for Medicaid? – & only age adjustments for TANF/SNAP…?”

    “No REINS act statutory requirement for congress to approve huge regulations – just an ‘administrative’ paygo that the administration will get to enforce? 7) No border security!! – & a deal allowing them to avoid policy riders in the fall… 8) more…” he noted further.

    Utah Senator Mike Lee responded, “With Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?”

    Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky noted as well: “Fake conservatives agree to fake spending cuts. Deal will increase mandatory spending ~5%, increase military spending ~3%, and maintain current non-military discretionary spending at post-COVID levels. No real cuts to see here. Conservatives have been sold out once again!” CONTINUE READING…
