Matt Gaetz DESTROYS Kevin McCarthy!!!

Matt Gaetz offered Kevin McCarthy terms…

Matt Gaetz (Opinion)

Those of us who will not be voting for Kevin McCarthy today take no joy in this discomfort at this moment has brought but if you want to drain the swamp you cannot put the biggest alligator in charge of the exercise. I’m a Florida man and I know of what I speak.

We (Matt Gaetz) offered Kevin McCarthy terms last evening that he rejected. We sought a vote in the first quarter of the 118th Congress on term limits; he refused. We wanted a budget from the Republican study committee that balances the budget, on the floor in the first quarter; he refused. We wanted the border plan that the Texas delegation put together on the floor; he refused.

It is true that we struggle with trust with Mr. McCarthy because time and again his viewpoints his positions they shift like sands underneath you. Even Kevin McCarthy’s own mentor recently said that the lies always change. Mr McCarthy is not responsive to pressure from the right but time and again he has failed to achieve the goals that we seek on spending.

For months we (Matt Gaetz) have been asking Mr McCarthy for his battle plan how do we ensure that we stand up for folks in the military who feel like they’re being purged? How do we ensure that if there is the passage of a farm bill, it includes things like work requirements and all we got was a handful of “howdy” and a mouthful of “much obliged.”

We (Matt Gaetz) do not want to be here at this moment; we would prefer to have a unity of purpose but we will not continue to allow the uniparty to run this town without a fight. There’s very little difference between Nancy Pelosi and her California delegation mate that seeks the gavel. We want to change because this town is broken and this is a person who has acknowledged and Mr McCarthy has admitted that the town is broken and he has been a part of that process for many years as a member of the leadership.

Did Matt Gaetz confront Kevin McCarthy at the last minute?

We (Matt Gaetz) didn’t take these things to him at the 11th hour, right before the speakers vote. He is unqualified to be Speaker because he should have worked this out a long time ago.

Kevin McCarthy confronts Matt Gaetz…

We have been presenting these ideas to Mr McCarthy and we have gotten strung along and only on New Year’s Eve did we see changes to the rules. What’s interesting about the meeting we just had is our colleagues broadly celebrated rules changes that many of us have been fighting for: to ensure that we had an opportunity to read the bills before voting on them, so that we did not get log rolled with multiple pieces of legislation put together that don’t have the same subject.

We wanted the germane rules so things like the National Defense authorization act wouldn’t be amended onto a water infrastructure bill and we did not get timely responses from Mr McCarthy? We did not get substantive responses from Mr McCarthy because I think he thought that just by going on leftwing networks and others that he would browbeat us into submission to the swamp; well, we’re not gonna do that.

So just to be clear none of what I heard are in there from McCarthy is enough to get our support. Everything I heard hardened my resolve that this town desperately needs change and if it’s a few of us who have to stand in the breach to force it we are willing to do so for as long as it takes.
