Looks like more than one top GOP representative realized the damage being caused by the ongoing war between House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and Representative Matt Gaetz.
Indeed, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene revealed her real thoughts on the ongoing battle between the two Republican representatives in an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail.
“It’s a system of failure and I’m fed up with it,” Greene proclaimed, adding that the Republicans should have been working cohesively to craft a new spending bill long before September 30, the effective 11th hour of a shutdown.
Greene also noted that the current legislative schedule is wildly unpractical, considering multiple representatives go home for weeks in the summer, only to return in September ready to squabble and effectively achieve nothing, aside from yet another government shutdown.
“We have intentional, systemic failure every single year because of a calendar that sets Congress up for a failure no matter which party is in charge. And, and you know what? That’s our current leadership’s fault as well,” Greene said pointedly, all but implying that quite a few alleged representatives across Washington, D.C. could benefit, strongly, from putting a bit more elbow grease into their service to constituents.
“Congress goes home for all of August and half of September. And that makes me so angry because I never would run my company that way. I have a construction company. We run on deadline. It’s ridiculous. So, I am angry about things,” Greene added irritably.
The wonders of having a representative with actual work experience in the real world in Washington, D.C., in particular owning a business within the construction industry.
Over the course of the interview, Greene detailed how she was becoming “fed up” with McCarthy and his team, especially in terms of the ongoing support of a massive “aid” influx to Ukraine.
President Biden has recently been prattling about another $24B aid package to Ukraine, on top of hundreds of billions of dollars that the nation has already collectively received from various NATO allies.
Needless to say, more than one Republican, not to mention more than one American, is less than impressed by Biden pledging endless billions that remain largely unaccounted for.
Thus, Greene warned that McCarthy should not entertain a massive aid package to the nation, noting that such an entertainment would likely dissuade others from supporting McCarthy.
“I think it would hurt his support across the country … So I don’t think he wants to cross that line,” Greene mused.
The representative also noted that she supported McCarthy before in his previous bid for the House Speaker position, though she also is apt to hold him accountable.
“I supported McCarthy to be speaker and I’ll be the first one to hold him accountable when he’s not doing his job,” Greene noted.
At the same time, Greene also believes Gaetz is going too far in his quest to disempower the current GOP House Speaker.
The fiery GOP representative argued that Gaetz will throw the GOP into “chaos” if he proceeds in his highly public bid to oust McCarthy.”
In doing so, Greene all but implied that the current war between both Republicans ultimately is little more than a major boon to the scandal-plagued Democrats.
