The House Republican Civil war IS SERIOUS…..
The WingNuts want one of their own to replace Rep. McCarthy, and become the Republican House Leader, who they feel would work HARDER to push for THEIR policy wants, which have NO chance of passage in the US Senate or with President Biden….
Like Donald Trump?
These lawmaker’s seem to0 be living in an alternate universe of their own….
America IS a country of 300M plus people….
Donald Trump tried to take it over and ended up getting arrested….
These people ARE also trying to take over things under the banner of cutting America’s spending….
The budget for the American Government and Military will need Republican AND Democratic votes when all the political dancing ends….
It COULD take more time and HURT than one may imagine…..
And GOPer’s eating their own….
And sacrificing their House majority in the future….
Members of the far-right faction of the party are coalescing around nominating a member of McCarthy’s leadership team, Rep. Tom Emmer (Minn.), to be the next speaker if they can successfully oust McCarthy, according to those people. The members think Emmer is more attuned to their concerns and will better deliver conservative results.
The effort to replace McCarthy with one of his top deputies is the latest example of the acrimony and chaos that has upended the Republican conference this year and has Congress on the path to a government shutdown. Many within the GOP conference, including McCarthy allies, have long warned that McCarthy’s leadership would be tested during the fight to fund the government because of promises he made to far-right lawmakers in January to win the speaker’s gavel.
Emmer, according to two people who have spoken to him, has not indicated whether he would want to pursue the speakership or support a measure to oust McCarthy.
“I fully support Speaker McCarthy. He knows that and I know that,” Emmer told The Washington Post in a statement. “I have zero interest in palace intrigue. End of discussion.”
It’s unclear if far-right members will move forward with the plan or if the plotting is simply a warning to McCarthy about the seriousness of their displeasure. But some members have emphasized that removing McCarthy is “inevitable” and “imminent” and they are calculating the right time to try to do it.
One lawmaker said they want McCarthy to leave the speakership with “some grace,” meaning that a motion would happen if the government shuts down and McCarthy has exhausted all options to keep it open with only Republican votes….
