McCarthy Facing Debt Ceiling Revolt-‘Outsmarted by President Who Can’t Find his Pants’

While many House Democrats have agreed to vote yes on the deal that Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.) and President Biden struck to increase the debt ceiling, Speaker McCarthy will still have to sell a significant amount of his caucus on the agreement.

He is already running into roadblocks with at least twenty-six members who have expressed opposition to the deal.

The twenty-six House Republicans, led by Representatives Nancy Mace, R-Sc., and prominent Freedom Caucus member Representative Chip Roy, R-Tx., said that McCarthy gave too much for too little in the pending deal.

‘Republicans got outsmarted by a President who can’t find his pants. I’m voting NO on the debt ceiling debacle because playing the DC game isn’t worth selling out our kids and grandkids,’ Mace said on Twitter, one of the first prominent Republicans to oppose the bill on Tuesday.

She further said that the token cuts offered to McCarthy weren’t sufficient as the deal ‘normalizes’ runaway spending that started during the pandemic.

‘This ‘deal’ normalizes record high spending started during the pandemic. It sets these historically high spending levels as the baseline for all future spending,’ Mace said.

She said the spending deal is a ‘wash’ and makes no meaningful cuts.

‘After factoring in a small cut to discretionary spending over the next 2 yrs, we are still talking about ~$6T more or less in spending because of large increases elsewhere. In other words, it’s a wash spending-wise.’ She concluded.

Representative Byron Donalds, R-Fl., who has become increasingly influential in his second term, said he would vote against the deal.

‘After I heard about the debt ceiling deal, I was a NO. After reading the debt ceiling deal, I am absolutely NO!!’ Donalds wrote on Twitter, joining the chorus of ultra-conservative voices against it.

Other House Republicans followed suit after learning of the deal’s contents and said they would oppose it.

Representative Ralph Norman, R-Sc., said he would vote against the debt ceiling increase because he believed it would ‘bankrupt’ the United States.

‘This ‘deal’ is insanity,’ tweeted Rep. Norman. ‘A $4T debt ceiling increase with virtually no cuts is not what we agreed to. Not gonna vote to bankrupt our country. The American people deserve better.’

Representative Matt Rosendale, R-Mo. also called the agreement a ‘disaster.’

‘I think it’s a disaster!’ He said on Twitter, dubbing it the Fiscal Irresponsibility Act.

Senator Joe Manchin, D-Wv., known for getting pork spending for his state and special treatment for withholding his vote on controversial bills, got the Mountain Valley Pipeline in West Virginia to secure his vote.

House Republicans criticized the handout on social media.

‘This bill is not good for ANY American. It only helps out special interests…oh yeah, and Joe Manchin’s project,’ Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fl., said in staking out opposition to the bill.
