Republicans Cave Again

So, House Speaker McCarthy managed to get a 45-day continuing resolution passed through the house on Saturday avoiding a government shutdown. He did so by betraying the Constitution and "We the People" and not abiding by the Republican Platform which states the Republican Party will be a fiscally responsible party. Federal spending will therefore continue at the bankrupting level of Fiscal Year 2023 for the next 45 days.

Speaker McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer agreed to use the 45-day stop-gap period to negotiate a Fiscal Year 2024 spending bill. Negotiating with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer means we can expect another spending bill which America can ill afford sending us further into debt and closer to our financial collapse. Speaker McCarthy and the Republicans who voted in favor of passage, once again caved to their fear of the news media and being blamed for a government shutdown. Instead of taking a fiscally responsible debt reducing budget stance and then allowing the Democrat Senate and Biden to reject their budget proposal placing the blame for a shutdown on their shoulders, McCarthy and his Republican followers failed to do their constitutional duty to keep America solvent.

90 constitutional conservative Republicans had the common sense to recognize that returning America back to a fiscally sound footing needs to begin now, not some unkept promised future date which never arrives. Those 90 constitutional conservative Republicans who had the courage and strength of conviction to vote against the stop-gap bill were:

Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-AL); Rep. Babin (R-TX); Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN); Rep. Bean (R-FL); Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ); Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC); Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO); Rep. Mike Bost (R-IL); Rep.

Michael Waltz (R-FL); Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX); Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL); Rep. Roger Williams (R-TX); Rep. Rudy Yakym (R-IN); Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-MT)

Only through the election of men and women like these 90 Republicans, willing to risk their reelection for doing the right thing by America and its citizens, can we ever hope to save our Republic. The time for negotiating with members of Congress who have no problems passing spending bills for unconstitutional programs, foreign aid to unappreciative countries; and ear mark funds to congressional members to buy their votes must end now.

It is beyond disappointing that NC-11 Representative Chuck Edwards' name is not on this list. This constituent will remember that come March.
