Senate Republicans Give Kevin McCarthy A Political Middle Finger


Kevin McCarthy and his House allies are complaining because Senate Republicans are trying to pass a year-long government funding bill, and Senate Republicans like Richard Shelby and Lindsey Graham aren’t taking it.

Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told CNN’s, Manu Raju:

Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) also responded to McCarthy:

Shelby is correct. McCarthy is only out to secure the votes to be speaker. The right thing to do for the country is to fund the government for the entire year. House Republicans don’t want the government funded because they want to try to extort Biden and congressional Democrats by threatening a government shutdown.

The new Republican House majority has taken office yet, but tensions are already surfacing with Senate Republicans. The Senate GOP has previously told House Republicans that they have no interest in potentially impeaching Biden or members of his cabinet.

If Republicans can’t pick a speaker without having a total meltdown, does anyone trust them to pass a government funding bill?

Senate Republicans aren’t going to boost McCarthy, and they are sending the message that they aren’t going to go down with the potentially sinking House Republican ship.
