    Rep. McCarthy calls Pelosi a 'lame duck Speaker,' says her actions are result of 'farewell tour'
    The House minority leader argues Speaker Pelosi has 'desecrated Congress'

    Kevin McCarthy slams Nancy Pelosi as 'lame duck speaker'
    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy argues that the House speaker is on her farewell tour.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday, arguing that the "lame duck speaker" is on her way out of office, which is reflected in how she is conducting business.

    "Where was she last month when the Democrats were working on reconciliation? The U.K.," McCarthy, R-Calif., remarked during an exclusive interview on "Sunday Morning Futures," noting that currently "she’s back in Europe when she’s supposed to be concerned about the debt ceiling."

    Senators voted to approve a short-term increase to the federal debt ceiling on Thursday night, ending a weekslong standoff on Capitol Hill and likely averting a default that could have triggered a recession.


    Senate Democrats passed the $480 billion increase by a simple majority vote of 50-48. The vote on the final measure occurred after 11 GOP lawmakers joined Democrats in a vote to invoke cloture, clearing the 60-vote filibuster threshold.

    The bill will now proceed to the House, where lawmakers could consider it by as early as this week. The $480 billion increase is enough to fund the government through at least early December.

    In the meantime, Pelosi participated in the G20 Parliamentary Speakers’ Summit, which began Thursday in Rome, "for important presentations on coordinating international coronavirus response efforts, national security issues and united action on climate," according to a news release from her office.

    McCarthy commented that Pelosi is "on her farewell tour," and argued that this is why in the reconciliation bill she included "$200 million from our hard-working taxpayers for a park in her district."

    Nasty Nancy has massed quite a considerable fortune in her many years of "serving" the people of America, hasn't she, Earl?

    I would go so far as to say that Rep. McCarthy is spot on with his Pelosi appellation.

    Yes, Legion, Lame Duck Pelosi has amassed quite a fortune...120 million, on a Congressional salary.

    Indeed she has.

    The party that wants to tax the rich doesn't seem to be interested in finding out how she got so rich, do they, Earl?

    No, they do not, Legion.

    She’s done right well at the public trough.

    Watching Earl blow on Legion's worm dick on a Friday morning is a little too much. Gross.

    I would think so, Legion.

    Why would they exempt a wealthy white woman from their confiscatory policy toward the ultra wealthy?

    The wealthy must pay their fair share.

    It’s only fair.
