I’m not sure this is really worth the time, because there are more than enough squishy Republicans, the get-along-go-along crowd, to keep him in the position. McCarthy is symptomatic of Republican leadership this century: promise a lot, deliver little, play ball with Democrats
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., has followed through on his renewed threat to introduce a motion to vacate against House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
Gaetz, a frequent McCarthy critic, introduced the motion Monday evening on the House floor.
“Mr. Speaker, pursuant to clause 2A1 of Rule 9, I rise to give notice of my intent to raise a question of the privileges of House,” Gaetz said. “Declaring the office Speaker of the House of Representatives to be vacant. Resolved that the office of Speaker of the House Representatives is hereby declared to be vacant.”
Gaetz’s move will force the House to take a vote on whether to keep McCarthy as speaker within two legislative days.
There are a number of members undecided on how they would vote on such a measure, but it’s likely McCarthy will need at least some Democrat votes to keep his job. Democrats could be in a position to try and extract concessions from McCarthy for their votes.
Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., told Fox News following Gaetz’s move that he believes a motion to vacate at this time is “a bad idea.” Additionally, Rep. Andy Ogles, R-Tenn., told Fox he was undecided.
Perhaps if McCarthy was listening and doing what he’s supposed to do, not playing with Democrats. Holding spending down, going after Biden (if Trump had done a 32nd of what Biden had done Dems would have impeached him 3 or 4 times by now), holding the DOJ and FBI accountable, knocking down the insane ‘climate change’ stuff, working to stop illegal immigration, etc.
What will be interesting is
What was the secret side deal that @SpeakerMcCarthy made with Joe Biden on Ukraine?
Members of the Republican Party might vote differently on a motion to vacate if they heard the answer to that question.
