Boebert to take shot across GOP leadership's bow in CPAC speech: 'Disappointed too many times'
EXCLUSIVE Ė Freedom Caucus Rep. Lauren Boebert is expected to send a shot across the bow of House Republican leadership in her Saturday CPAC speech, demanding a potential GOP majority aggressively enact several conservative priorities.
The remarks suggest she may withhold support from Republicans seeking election to the House leadership should Republicans win the majority, including current Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who plans to run for speaker
"I wish I could tell you that I had full faith in GOP leadership in both the House and Senate to defund the deep state and to hold the Biden regime accountable," she's expected to say. "But I donít. Iíve been disappointed too many times.
"House Republicans must stop funding tyranny. I will not vote to fund a government that mandates the COVID vaccine while allowing our country to be invaded by millions of unvaccinated aliens. End the vax mandate for our hospital workers and service members, build the wall or Iím voting to shut down Bidenís bureaucrats."
The Freedom Caucus will wield a lot more leverage if the GOP is in the majority. And Boebert is expected on Saturday to take a veiled shot at top Republicans, like McCarthy, R-Calif., demanding support in implementing the Freedom Caucus' priority policies.
Long article. These are highlights.
Bottom line. All the energy and chaos...and acceptance and openness and tolerance and inclusion in American politics these days is with the GOPs. Fresh, opposing ideas are welcome here. The GOP culture encourages diversity...DEMANDS it.
Does that create political vulnerability since the Dems cling to their strict orthodoxy as if they are replicating Stalinism in the USSR.
Still, pb will embrace the joi de vivre among the GOP!
Oh, and do you wonder why Fox's ratings now are higher than MSNBC and CNN combined? Fox participates in the GOP openness and chaos.
