Everything has gotten worse, whether it be the border, culture, economy, debt, budgets, government abuse and inefficiency, or the size of government. This is the House closest to the people. All the leftist initiatives have been funded and not a dollar has been cut from any agency. The best we have gotten is slowing the rate of growth.
The same people have been in charge forever. All of these people in the top positions of the GOP are largely still there. We don’t need McCarthy. We do not need his pals. They have failed. All the GOP had to do in any one of those 20 years was sit there and do nothing. Refuse to fund so many of the things they claim they are against. Let it disappear into the wind. It should be easy for the party of “small government” and “less spending” just to sit there and let it go away. Something they could never bring themselves to do.
Imagine if someone told you all you have to do is sit there and do nothing, and the thing you want most will happen. How hard would it be for you to just sit there? Hey, you want that supermodel to fall in love with you? Sit there and do nothing. No! I gotta raise the budget!
Those 19 Republican holdouts who want concessions just have to sit there and do nothing and refuse to agree to keep the machine going. If McCarthy is so skilled a wheeler-and-dealer, he should be able to give them what they want and come to an agreement. If he isn’t, then we don’t need him as a leader.
It is about time the machine came to a halt and we had a government that refused to go along with anything. Especially for the party that claims “the government that governs least governs best.” It is not hard to sit there and do nothing, especially when you believe in doing nothing or claim to.Published in
