clown car slams into congress

clown car slams into congress by hip is everything

well kids …
the republican clown car that is sometimes (sadly) called congress is at it again …
the “freedom caucus” (aka bagger express) has decided that they don’t want to govern … once again …
and that they need to be in complete control of the gop congress even though they are a very small minority group in that same congress …
like the old saying goes: “if you ride the tiger, he will eventually eat you” …
and john of orange and kevin “benghazi, benghazi” benghazi” mccarthy have absolutely no one to blame but themselves for this latest clown car crash …
you pricks fed this tiger red meat for the last 6 years for your own political advantage, and now that frickin’ tiger needs some grub …
guess what? … you’re the grub guys …
nice work assholes …
once again rank and file “Americans” will pay for your greed and idiocy …
get ready for a year or two more of shutdowns, logjams and lunacy from the right …

Kevin McCarthy’s Stunning Exit From the Speaker’s Race
The presumptive successor to John Boehner abruptly ended his bid after determining he could not get the support he needed from conservatives.
Behind Kevin McCarthy’s stunning decision Thursday to end his bid for speaker lay a simple calculation: Even if he could scrape together the 218 votes he needed to win the formal House election later this month, he would begin his term a crippled leader unable to unite a party that he said was “deeply divided.”
The majority leader and presumed successor to John Boehner had been widely expected to win the House GOP’s secret-ballot nomination on Thursday. All he needed was a simple majority of the 247-member caucus, and he easily had the votes over long-shot challengers Jason Chaffetz of Utah or Daniel Webster of Florida, who won the endorsement of the renegade House Freedom Caucus. But even if he’d won on Thursday, McCarthy knew he was still short of the threshold he needed on the floor, knowing that Democrats would vote as a bloc against him.
Conservatives had effectively held McCarthy hostage, just as they had done weeks ago to Boehner: The 30-odd member Freedom Caucus was threatening to block his ascension unless he agreed to empower its members through committee and leadership slots, procedural reforms, and possibly even legislative promises that he would be unable to keep. That dynamic was even more significant that McCarthy’s stumble on Fox News last week, when he suggested that Republicans had created the special committee on Benghazi to bring down Hillary Clinton. But as the chastened majority leader acknowledged Thursday, they “certainly didn’t help.”
When McCarthy made his announcement to the party, Republican lawmakers “were all in shock,” Representative Robert Pittenger told reporters. “The room was in total silence.” Those who were stunned included Boehner, who remains speaker and quickly postponed the election for his replacement so Republicans could regroup.
