House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called-out his Democratic colleagues at the US Capitol Monday; saying Democrats are focused on “mandates” while Republicans are focused on “more freedom.”
“The Democrats are focused on securing the speaker’s legacy. House Republicans are focused on solving the labor crisis. […] Democrats are focused on mandates. Republicans are focused on more freedom,” said McCarthy.

McCarthy spoke with reporters at the US Capitol last Wednesday following a major Republican victory in Virginia and potential win in New Jersey, saying he hopes to turn 60 seats red during the 2022 midterm elections.
“If you’re a Democrat and President Biden won your seat by 16 points, you’re in a competitive race next year. You are no longer safe,” McCarthy told reporters.

“It’ll be more than 70 [Democratic seats] that will be competitive. There’s many that are going to lose their races based upon walking off a cliff from [Speaker] Nancy Pelosi [D-Calif.] pushing them,” he continued. “She may not care if she lose. She lost 63 the last time she was Speaker moving policy that the country didn’t care for.
“Many believe she won’t stay around,” he added.
“Are you going to bring President Biden with his policies into your district to defend you? Are you going to bring the vice president? Terry McAuliffe did, and look what happened to him,” McCarthy warned.

BACKLASH: McCarthy, Meadows RIP Pelosi’s ‘Sham’ Impeachment Inquiry Vote
Representatives Kevin McCarthy and Mark Meadows slammed Nancy Pelosi’s impending impeachment inquiry vote this week; calling the entire process a “sham.”
“It’s been 34 days since Nancy Pelosi unilaterally declared her impeachment inquiry. Today’s backtracking is an admission that this process has been botched from the start. We will not legitimize the Schiff/Pelosi sham impeachment,” posted McCarthy on social media.

“House Democrats now suddenly saying they’ll vote on an impeachment resolution to ‘ensure transparency’ is rich—considering they’ve spent weeks conducting interviews in secret, leaking their own talking points while locking down any and all information that benefits the President,” added Meadows.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi confirmed Monday that she will call a vote to “formalize” impeachment proceedings against President Trump on Thursday.
“The resolution — which ‘establishes the procedure for hearings,’ according to a statement by Speaker Nancy Pelosi — will mark the first floor vote on impeachment since Democrats formally launched their inquiry a month ago,” reports Politico.

“We are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump Administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives,” Pelosi said in a letter.
‘THE PELOSI PAYOFF’: GOP Leader McCarthy Demands Dems ‘Stop Calling It a CoVID Relief Plan’
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy ripped his Democratic colleagues over their frenzied drive to pass a $1.9 trillion CoVID “relief package” that does little to address the virus pandemic; saying the bill should be renamed the “Pelosi Payoff.”
“Dear Democrats: Stop calling it a ‘COVID Relief’ plan. A better name would be ‘The Pelosi Payoff,’” posted McCarthy on Twitter.

Recent studies show roughly 9% of the package would go towards health spending, the rest being doled out to union pensions, Planned Parenthood, the National Endowment for the Arts, and other liberal priorities.
