He, he, he…..
Remember ALL those promises Kevin McCarthy made to get the House Speaker gig?
They were bull shit….
The ONLY way things get done for lawmaker’s leaders is to do what the system requires…..
Get a smnall group together to get something that has a chance to get the votes needed….
Not getting something that would help certain members look good to their supporters ….
The boss isn’t gonna let some committee hash things out either….
The caucus boss in Congress IS the boss after getting the job…
‘Too many cooks spoil the broth’, eh?….
Not a single committee held a hearing on a bill that would slash trillions of dollars from federal agency budgets and revoke clean climate tax credits. Not one committee held the traditional legislative markup to consider amendments and further debate on the measure. Not one Democrat had input into the measure.
And a surprising thing happened along the way. The Republicans, even the most conservative antagonists who decried this type of legislating, learned to like backroom dealmaking despite their demands in early January for McCarthy (R-Calif.) to promise a more open legislative process in exchange for their votes for speaker…
The actual committee of the whole would involve the full House convening in public and taking up legislation that has already been considered by a legislative committee, and then debating and amending that bill under special rules that can expedite the process.
All done out in the open, with House TV cameras rolling.
Instead, just a little more than three months into power, Republicans have learned that sometimes, compiling bills in committee and bringing them to the full House for a wide-open debate is too cumbersome….

Anyone who would believe anything a miserable ,dumbass ,little worm like Kevin McCarthy would say?
Is a damn idiot.
He made promises he didn’t keep?
My Name Is Jack says
Trump owns the little worm.
Like his hero his “ word” means nothing.

Debt ceiling will be raised in the end
