Who will lead the Republican Party majority in the US House as Speaker of the House and who will shape the highly anticipated committee hearings that will likely delve deeply into the massive and historical corruption of the Democrat Party – and pull some Never Trumper- RINOS into the fray – is a hotly contested matter.
The stakes for who will occupy this post are quite high, and America First supporters are looking for someone with a backbone and the drive to truly hold traitors responsible.
The last Republican Speaker of the House, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), was nothing more than a liberal in disguise, thus Conservatives are leery of another another ‘flip-flopping’ GOP game-player assuming the position.
Republicans voted last week to select minority leader US Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for the position. Still, he lacked sufficient support from the “nomination to run” vote to clinch the deal in a final vote, meaning he would require Democrats to vote for him, something the majority of Americans say would never occur.
McCarthy, as the leader of the minority, has been without spin despite spending the previous several days emulating a firebrand in front of cameras in an attempt to win the position and more support.
There are members of the Republican party who refuse to be impressed by McCarthy’s newly discovered courage.
Nicholas Ballasay of Just The News remarked on the possibility that McCarthy will not be elected Speaker.
McCarthy’s path to 218 votes for speaker is getting more complicated
“I don’t think that he’s going to get to 218 now or by January 3,” says Rep. Andy Biggs, former House Freedom Caucus chairman who challenged McCarthy for speaker.
“House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy’s path to 218 votes for speaker of the House is getting more complicated as the start of the new Congress fast approaches,” Ballasay reported adding:
So far, five conservatives have said they don’t plan to vote for McCarthy, and the House Freedom Caucus chairman, Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry, said he is disappointed in the state of negotiations with the GOP leader.
According to the Congressional Research Service, McCarthy would require the support of a majority of those present and voting on the House floor in order to become the next speaker (CRS).
