House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s bad week is only getting worse by the day.
Pelosi is embroiled in the controversy surrounding lawmakers and shady trades. She was also mocked on social media for handing out masks to members of Congress that had “made in China” on them.
GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy is telling voters that in November, they can “retire” Pelosi once and for all.
McCarthy spoke on Fox News about November’s midterm elections and the state of the country under Joe Biden in the White House and Democrats controlling both chambers of Congress.
The California Republican said the best thing voters can do is “fire” Pelosi and give Republicans back control of the House.
“Had Joe Biden literally gone to sleep come our country will be stronger,” McCarthy began.
“We would be energy independent. It would be China and Russia winning, it would be America that was winning. Our borders would be secure. We wouldn’t have rising inflation. This is the problem. One-party rule in one year. But the good news is, in less than one year we can fix this country if we fire Nancy Pelosi. That is why need everybody to go to firepelosi.com. Join the fight. It’s not just Republicans, Democrats, independents. If you care about this country, if you want to change the course of history, we can do it and we can make it happen,” he added.
When asked about the midterms, McCarthy sounded optimistic given nearly every poll strongly suggests Republicans are going to win back the House and Senate.
“No longer do you have to worry about the filibuster because what will come out of the house you will be supporting. No longer will we have inflation, no longer will we look to OPEC. The gasoline price will be lower, the border will be secure. In nine months, they had 1.4 million encounters come up illegally across this border,” he said.
“That is more than 2018, 2019, and 2020 all combined in the middle of Covid. You know what the Democrats continue to do? They are changing the course of history. I spent some time, I don’t know if you listen the other night, speaking on the floor a little longer than one minute. I didn’t set out to break any laws or any records. I wanted to break this bill down. I wanted America to know that they are hiring 87,000 IRS agents. Why? To go after your transactions, your records if you spend as little as $28 a day. You know what they are doing too? They are knocking parents out of schools. We just introduced a parent’s bill of rights, because parents do have a right and do have a right to say in their children’s education,” he concluded.
Earlier this week, McCarthy pledged a plethora of probes if Republicans retake control of the U.S. House after November’s midterm elections.
Biden’s Justice Department, Education Department, and current COVID-19 policies “are prime targets.”
“We have already sent preservation notices and document requests and will be ready on day one to use the various tools at our disposal to get the answers Americans are demanding,” a spokesperson for McCarthy’s office said.
“Biden protects liberal activists but turns a blind eye to rising crime. Biden has opened the border, supported mandates that have hurt students in the classroom and parental rights, allowed Big Tech to silence conservatives, and has overseen leaks of private information on American citizens under his watch,” McCarthy added.
In addition to the aforementioned areas of interest, McCarthy’s office said Republicans will also examine Biden’s border policies “that have led to record illegal immigration and crime along the border” as well as the actual number of Americans who were left behind in Afghanistan thanks to “decisions” that led to a “botched Afghanistan withdrawal” resulting in the loss of 13 members of the U.S. military.
