United States House of Representatives and Speaker Kevin McCarthy Follow Up

Dear friends,

After some consternation and acute worry, I am much relieved that the House of Representatives Speaker is Kevin McCarthy. This important body can go about the people’s business. The House basically controls the purse strings and can defund activities it deems necessary, such as the totalitarian effort by the Democrats to hire 87,000 IRS agents to harass the Middle Class. This will be done.

I was also pleased that Kevin McCarthy was willing, after considerable negotiations, to compromise with his detractors and agree to some important and in my view, positive changes that will make the operation of the House actually better. There will be new House rules that I believe will be passed.

Some of the positive changes that were agreed upon for the next congress: 1) cap on spending, no more pork in bills, a bill can only address the main issue (unlike the outrageous Omnibus bill that mostly wastes taxpayer’s money through personal Democrat, selfish issues. 2) addressing the border crisis, 3) full-scale Investigations into the FBI in regard to censorship and cover-ups, 4) complete investigations into the Biden influence-peddling through Hunter Biden, 5) a return to the Thomas Jefferson operation that lasted 100 years, until Pelosi changed it, where any member of the House can call for a removal of a Speaker, and a vote to that effect happens accordingly. 6) no more voting remotely, it must be done in person.

These are just some of the important issues that McCarthy agreed to. The fact that McCarthy is willing to be held accountable for his Speakership operation is indeed significant and shows his sincerity. For all intents and purposes, I believe the Republican majority in the House of Representatives is now unified.

No doubt, there is some skepticism that is justified, however, I am hopeful. The reality of the situation is the Senate is still controlled by the Democrats and Biden is still President, What the House does under McCarthy’s leadership could very well determine the future election in 2024 as to the control of both Houses and the Presidency. That is the way I see it.

As always, your thoughts and opinions are important, welcome, and appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely yours,

JUDSON Bennett-Coastal Network
