Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) doesn’t want a “partisan food fight” and investigations.?
Is this guy for REAL?
His party members have had their OWN show for how long?
They have disinvited Democrats from participation in the Congress….
And NOW, all the sudden they want to be friends with Democrats?
Sure they will sit-down together for certain things…
Democrats can’t overdo things though….
But the shoe IS on the other foot….
McCarthy is gonna to have to watch the person his party demonized…..
Nancy Pelosi control things in the House…
People voted with their feet to rearrange the power in Congress….
At least in the House…
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is encouraging incoming Democratic lawmakers to embrace bipartisanship, arguing such an approach benefits constituents more than a “partisan food fight” and investigations.
In a letter written to the soon-to-be freshman Thursday, the California Republican expressed his willingness to work with them and offered to meet with them during the 116th Congress.
Democrats are set to take over the House majority on Jan. 3.
“As you acknowledged in your letter to Democratic leadership, legislating is the number one priority of the legislative branch. I agree,” he wrote.
“If the next Congress devolves into a partisan food fight of accusations and investigations, it will come at the expense of real Americans. A minority of loud voices seem to prefer that outcome, but I think our country is too great for a vision so small.”
McCarthy said he’s encouraged by the enthusiasm of incoming members, writing he hopes they can hold onto their convictions while learning to compromise.
McCarthy is making his pitch to the incoming Democratic House members who didn’t have to sit ideally by for the last 8 years like the incumbent Democratic House members have…
