Do You Support Kevin McCarthy For Speaker Of The House? Vote Now!
The Republican stalemate over who will be Speaker of the House continues on Capitol Hill. GOP Representatives are DEADLOCKED in their "family squabble" over whether or not the House Minority Leader for the 117th Congress, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will be handed the gavel to lead the 118th.
Despite McCarthy going 0-for-6 in votes over the past two days, CNN reports he's still confident that he'll secure the 218-vote majority needed to become Speaker. "We will get to 218. We'll solve our problems, and we will all work together," he insisted. "We have 90% of the votes. I've never seen a body where 10% is going to control the 90%. It just doesn't happen."
The House of Representatives is scheduled to reconvene tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET. Until then, the haggling, negotiating and arm-twisting are expected to continue with even more intensity. Until a Speaker of the House is elected, Representatives can't be sworn in, they can't pass the required House rules for a new Congress, nor can members introduce or vote on new legislation.
What do you think? Whether you OPPOSE or SUPPORT Kevin McCarthy for the next Speaker of the House, Grassfire is empowering you to take immediate action. Please make your voice heard by voting "No!" or "Yes!" in our QuickPoll now:
We want to remind you that, although rare, holding multiple votes to select a House Speaker is not unprecedented. In 1855 and 1856, it took 133 votes during a two-month period to elect Representative Nathaniel Banks of Massachusetts over Representative William Aiken of South Carolina, 103 to 100, to serve as Speaker of the House for America's 34th Congress.
Nearly two dozen "America First" Republican House members say McCarthy is cut from the same cloth as former GOP RINO House Speakers John Boehner and Paul Ryan. But more than 200 other Republicans in the House want to get to work behind McCarthy to stop the Biden Regime's failures and tyranny.
Again, someone needs 218 votes to become Speaker of the House. Even with 20 "No" votes and one "present," McCarthy is much, much closer to victory than any other Republican. Please let us know what you think by casting your "No!" or "Yes!" vote now. Thanks, in advance, for taking action tonight.
