GOP Home Really hard At Perform Defunding White Property Officers

We are nine days out from a authorities shutdown, and Republican reps are really hard at perform putting VP Harris, Secretary Pete Buttigieg and Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre’s salaries to a vote.

Right here is Rep. Claudia Tenney, introducing her amendment. “Thank you Mr. Speaker, I rise these days to give an amendment to decrease the salary of Karine Jean-Pierre, the White Dwelling Press Secretary, to $one,” she started. “Mr. Speaker, all through Ms. Jean-Pierre’s tenure as Press Secretary, she has frequently lied to the American people today and acted in a condescending method toward reporters, and also violated the Hatch Act.” A rich accusation, specified the working day-to-day violations of Kayleigh McEnany, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and many others in the final administration.

This is no joke, to estimate the president. The Speaker of the House has experienced to pull two appropriations expenses from the floor since he are unable to get more than enough Republicans (who essentially wrote them in committee) powering them. This is no incident. What Republicans are accomplishing right here is pretending like they’re working when they’re just fiilbustering toward a governing administration shutdown.

None of these silly amendments will pass, but they however have to be debated and voted on when the true laws to fund the authorities languishes beneath a pile of amendments.

Yesterday they voted down an modification to defund VP Kamala Harris’ business. Then Pete Buttiegieg. Now Karine Jean Pierre.

Why just isn’t the Beltway push reporting on this? It appears critical, provided that they will blame Democrats for the shutdown when it occurs proper prior to Thanksgiving. Oh, wait, they are far too active obsessing on polls and speaking about Biden’s age.

This is my prediction and I genuinely hope I am completely wrong: Republicans will shut down the government on November seventeenth and it will stay shut down until eventually just after January 1st. They will not want to govern. They just want to blow it all up.
