    Default McCarthy blocks bipartisan bill

    Republican Speaker Kevin McCarthy is saying he will not allow the House to take up a compromise bill supported by a large and bipartisan majority of Senators that would allow the federal government to continue operating past the midnight Saturday deadline.

    ďI donít see the support in the House," for the Senate's proposed continuing resolution, McCarthy said on Wednesday, according to Punchbowl News' Jake Sherman. He also reports that "this is the most explicit heís been" in saying "he wonít take it up and pass it as is."

    Chad Pergram, the Senior Congressional Correspondent for Fox News reports, "McCarthy says he wonít allow the House to consider the Senateís stopgap spending bill to avert a govít shutdown for 45 days. 77 bipartisan senators supported the package on a test vote last night.

    Meanwhile, House Republicans, and especially Speaker McCarthy, are attempting to blame the likely shutdown on Democrats. House Democrats, Senate Democrats and most Senate Republicans have been working to avert a shutdown but Speaker McCarthy's most extreme members have been pushing to shut down the federal government. Political observers say he could keep the government running by putting together a majority of House Democrats and a handful of moderate Republicans to pass a continuing resolution, but would likely lose his Speakership as a result.

    An utter disgrace of a leader. I guess he misread the motto, he thought it said 'Do The Wrong Thing'. I think a government shutdown is now guaranteed. A straight up vote on the Senate bill would easily pass the House. And at the end of the day, that's what will happen, but McCarthy is going to put millions of Americans through a shutdown because he lacks a spine.

    What a gutless coward he is.

    First there is no citation so its all bullshit. Second even if it is true nothing in that rant tells us the reasons McCarthy won't bring it for a vote. Blaming the DFs for the shut down is not a reason.

    When a news articles declares that a bill is supported by a large and bipartisan majority, the bill is likely being pushed by a fringe, radical leftist minority. It's probably something that has a provision in it to kill capitalism and to place political dissenters under house arrest.

    I'm certain that Speaker Kevin McCarthy is doing the right thing in blocking the bill until it is modified to no longer kill the nation's economy.

    ... by not allowing stupid, radical leftist minorities to kill the country outright. All I have to know is your position on a matter and I'll know what the wrong position is.

    It figures you would chime in on cue with all the other stupid leftist cowards. Seeing you mindlessly piling on leaves no doubt that McCarthy is doing the right thing. Why else would your slave-masters have you sloganeering without adding any insight as to what the root issues are. You don't care. You just OBEY.
    Global Warming violates the 1st LoT by claiming the magical increase in thermal energy out of nothing, in the form of a temperature increase, which is somehow caused by a magical substance.
    Greenhouse Effect violates Stefan-Boltzmann and black body science by claiming that an increase in earth's temperature is somehow caused by a decrease in earth's radiance.
    Greenhouse Effect violates the 2nd LoT by claiming that the cooler atmosphere somehow heats the warmer earth's surface.

    I've been trying to tell you dumbasses this very thing for a decade, so it's hilarious you're using this now.
    A sad commentary on we, as a people, and our viewpoint of our freedom can be summed up like this. We have liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans, yet those very people look at Constitutionalists as radical and extreme.................so those liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans must believe that the constitution is radical and extreme.
