McCarthy: House GOP will ‘run the floor’ amid fracturing of Dem party

Rumblings of unseating House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from leadership are growing louder as legislators prepare for the meeting of the 117th Congress.

Current House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said on Saturday that though Democrats technically hold the majority in the House, Republican legislators may “run the floor” due to infighting between establishment Dems and progressives. 

In the aftermath of the election, a clear fracturing of the Democrat party took place, with moderate Democrats taking a stand against the party’s radical progressive contingent and establishment Dems attempting to toe the line between the warring factions in order to retain their power.

Many Democrat legislators representing Trump districts either lost their seats or came alarmingly close to doing so, making the survivors even less willing to support Pelosi’s far-left agenda for fear of losing their seats in the next election.

Moderate Democrat Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) was the first legislator to come forward and declare that she will not support Pelosi’s bid for House Speaker in Friday, and there are likely more moderates that will join her.

Conversely, radical leftist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) indicated last month that she may throw Pelosi under the bus in favor of a more progressive candidate for House Speaker.

House Republicans appear to be poised to take advantage of the chaos and disagreement among House Democrats, McCarthy indicated during an appearance with Fox’s Judge Jeanine on Saturday.

“We’ll have leadership races next week, and you’ll hear that she’ll win the leadership race,” McCarthy said of Pelosi. “But that does not make her speaker. You have to have 218 votes on the floor. Last Congress, 15 Democrats voted against her. Ten of those Democrats are coming back to Congress. If 10 Democrats vote against her, she will not be speaker.”

McCarthy said that even if Pelosi manages to bully House Dems into submission, the rift between moderate Democrats and progressives like Ocasio-Cortez will continue to grow:

If she wins as speaker, you have AOC and the progressive socialists actually grow. They are fighting among themselves, tweeting at one another, pictures staring at one another, saying it’s a dumpster fire, screaming on their conference calls.

I believe at the end of the day the Republicans will run the floor because it’ll be our ideas that are stronger. The American public have rejected defunding the police, dismantling America. We believe we can rebuild and restore the American way.

I agree with Carl, she needs to be put in her place. What gives us the right to go after other communist leaders and leave this witch be, she is far from being a Goddess. Such a disgrace to our Country. Should be in jail for treason.

Pelosi is so full of hate that she can’t possibly do any good. Just hope AOC doesn’t replace her.

There should be a law that says that anyone who swears to support the constitution and then does not support that form of government should be penalized for lying. I’m thinking perjury ( like General French). They at least be forced to resign. The American public, over 25, likes our form of government. Where are the penalties for not living up to defending the constitution as a public servant?

I always thought that traitors were taken care of. We are allowing Pelosi , Waters , Schumer, and the rest of the Radical Democrats to face the music. This is our country and your right to be part of it is gone. When you and the other Democrats tried to overthrow overthrow our country. Trump is our President and Biden is not nor will he ever be.

If congress is able to get rid of Pelousi, Schummer, Schitt and Maxine then the country has a chance to recover from these type of idiots the Demoncraps have pulling their strings to destroy the country completely which has been their goal since Odumbo was elected.

Congress should remove Pelousi, schumer, Maxine, and schitt then there would be a chance for the US to cover from the damage these idiots have done showing their hatred for the only President who wanted to get the country back to being great again.

When all is said and done, all the “ lost” votes counted, and re counts done, the demonrats just might loose the house. Best scenario, Kevin McCarthy the speaker of the house! That would be the best, to see Piglosi GONE!!!
