Rep. Matt Gaetz Says He Plans To Oust House Speaker Kevin McCarthy
“Speaker McCarthy made an agreement with House conservatives in January and since then he’s been in brazen, repeated material breach of that agreement,” Gaetz told Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” on Sunday. “This agreement that he made with Democrats to really blow past a lot of the spending guardrails we set up is a last straw.”
“I do intend to file a motion to vacate against Speaker McCarthy this week,” Gaetz continued. I think we need to rip off the Band-Aid. I think we need to move on with new leadership that will be trustworthy.”
With three hours to spare, McCarthy proposed a bill that passed both chambers and was signed by President Joe Biden to keep the government funded until Nov. 17.
