House Republicans Complain That Democrats Won’t Bail Them Out Of Speaker Chaos
Rep. Kevin McCarthy has conceded everything that his opponents wanted in a bid to try to get their support for his Speaker of the House candidacy. McCarthy has vowed not to get involved in Republican open-seat primaries. He even agreed to allow a single member to call for a vote to end his speakership, but he still does not have the necessary votes needed to be elected speaker.
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Thursday morning, Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) had the nerve to say that if Democrats would have voted for Rep. Byron Donalds yesterday, the fight over who will be speaker would be over.
Video of Rep. Bishop:
Republicans are so weak, inept, and incompetent that they are angry at Democrats for not fixing their own structural unfitness to govern.
House Republicans won the majority and it is their job to figure out how to govern. If they are unable to govern, they can’t look to Democrats to bail them out.
