He REALLY has no choice…..
The reality IS that even though Mccarthy had to sell his soul to his caucus’s crazies to get his spot?
He has NO ability to get much of anything done unless he works WITH Democrats who control the Senate and the Presidency…
(McCarthy was the House Minority Leader dealing with Pelosi not to long ago, eh?)
This WILL cost McCarthy….
But just the same applies to Jeffries who will have to listen but NOT entertain his parties Progresives on everything either….
In the end?
To make the Congress work?
The political pareties MUST hash out solutions together…
It IS the way the system works….
No matter what some groups promise to their base’s
McCarthy and Jeffries have been driven to establish a truce of sorts this year, working to maintain a cordial relationship out of respect for the House as a functioning institution, according to nearly a dozen close confidants and lawmakers, some of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the relationship candidly. The rough start of the congressional term has since given way to a series of olive branches.
But the nascent relationship will be tested by the imminent, and already partisan, fight over the debt ceiling and government funding later this year. Both men have foreshadowed the clash, with Jeffries blasting “the irresponsible effort by extreme MAGA Republicans” to hold the economy hostage, and McCarthy blaming Democrats for exploding the debt and refusing to negotiate.
“There’s times we argue,” McCarthy said in an interview. “But that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t talk to him as minority leader.”
