Last night Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert revealed on Fox News that McCarthy could have already been sworn in as Speaker, had he not rejected a simple common-sense proposal from conservatives.
She told Fox News “Special Report” host Bret Baier she had endeavored to create “unity” to forge a conservative agenda supported by America. She said she and two others presented some simple requests including a border security bill, term limits, and reducing the federal debt.
RINO McCarthy “smugly” rejected all of it.
From the Daily Caller:
“I have been working for months behind the scenes to create unity,” Boebert told “Special Report” host Bret Baier. “Just last night two colleagues and myself walked into Kevin McCarthy’s office and presented him a very common sense proposal, a deal that got him 218 votes, the gavel on the first ballot and he smugly rejected that.”
“McCarthy failed to garner the 218 votes needed to become speaker in three ballots Tuesday, receiving 203 votes in the first two ballots, before Republican Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida switched his vote to Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio on the third ballot, leaving the California Republican with 202. Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York secured 212 votes from Democrats in all three ballots.”
“It was very common-sense things like putting forward a border security bill. Putting forward a term limits bill. Having a measure in place where any member of Congress who offers an amendment to reduce the federal debt, well, that’s made in order,” Boebert continued.”
“Boebert disputed claims from other Republicans that the opposition to McCarthy was “petty.”
“I don’t think a secure border is petty. I don’t think a term limits bill being brought to the floor, not demanding to pass, but brought to the floor so we actually have an option to vote on that is petty,” Boebert said, adding that McCarthy failed to demonstrate a commitment to securing the border or balancing the federal budget.”
“We asked for the Republican Study Committee’s budget be put forward. This is a budget that balances in seven years, and Kevin McCarthy told us no,” Boebert claimed.”
This is why America first conservatives oppose McCarthy and refuse to yield to pressure from the Uniparty.
They actually want to save America, put forth real solutions, and stop the Biden Regime’s radical agenda.
Currently, America first conservatives have the upper hand and are in full control.
