  1. McCarthy biggest challenge is his own stupidity and cowardice.

  2. The Republican party has been hijacked by petulant children throwing tantrums. The "Freedom Caucus" will be the end of the GOP.
    They are getting NOTHING done, just retaliatory investigations and tax cuts for the wealthy. Oh and cutting Veterans care money and food for hungry poor children.

  3. Is McCarthy the Speaker? Is Joe Biden president? Is Matt just a disgraced Congressman in Florida? This is politics choose your truth…choose your reality…choose where your soul resides…but for Christ's sake don't claim He doesn't know what the truth is.

  4. Green eggs and ham it's time to read…. it's become a clown show… TexiT🤢🤮🤮🤮

  5. cancel culture on full display

  6. GOP wasting time again and tax payer money. Sickening

  9. Thank God someone is finally standing up and taking action against these totalitarian Marxists!🇺🇲

  10. I couldn’t imagine just goofing off at work, I mean this American public pay attention to the Congress at all? Because I guarantee if I went outside right now and talk to 50 people nobody knows about this BS. They are wasting tax money up there. They never get anything done. Why do they keep getting voted in office. Wow I’m so disappointed in both parties. They’re both disgusting. We need a new third-party. We need a fourth party. We need a fifth party. We need a lot more options but the Democrats and Republicans are so gross.!!!!

  11. "cradle of leadership." Well, when the bough breaks, the cradle will fall. And it has fallen here; it has fallen. Makers of men; creators of leaders; be careful what kind of leaders you're producin' here. Scent of a Woman

  12. In the days after the insurrection, nearly 250 companies suspended donations to members of the Sedition Caucus. Less than two years later, less than a third of those companies have kept their promises. Some resumed giving just months after the riot, highlighting the emptiness of their public stances. Other companies have only recently increased their giving, maybe because they think no one’s watching anymore, or because some political pundits anticipate that the Republican Party could regain control of one or both chambers of Congress.

  13. Love how people who work from home in their living rooms want to criticize people that actually show up for work 👌🏻

  14. Good they’re doing their job!!

  15. What's new please tell us something we don't know. The same for the past 25 years now.

  16. Stop calling them lawmakers!

  17. They can all go home and stay there they do nothing for we the people.but spend tax money on other countries immigrants both replicans and Democrats our vote mean nothing they do what they want hate them all

  18. They were elected to protect our freedoms. WHY WOULD BIDEN BANN GAS STOVES? We do not want things put in bills deceptively.

  19. If they are not working those days, WHY are they getting paid for those days? They shouldnt
