Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), chairman of the minority House of Representatives, said Sunday that the results of the 2020 election show that “the American people” are “fed up” with the Democratic leadership. He said so shortly after the 117th Congress took office.
McCarthy says Americans are fed up with Democrats
“Two months ago today, the American people said enough,” said McCarthy. “Enough with politicians dictating what to say, where to eat, and whether you can go to church.”
“Enough with politicians ignoring the home locks they put on the rest of us,” added the Republican legislature. “Enough with the arrogance and the hypocrisy. Americans are fed up with it, and so are we Republicans. “

McCarthy added that the acceptance of radical ideas, including defusing the police, by some progressive Democrats opened the door for Republicans to show they had the interests of voters in mind.
“As the Lincoln Party, Republicans understand what it means to have our constituents’ concerns with us at all times,” said McCarthy. “We are a growing working class coalition of proud Americans – more energetic, more united and more confident than ever.”
“We listened to our voters,” he continued. “And we are committed to America to restore our way of life, rebuild the economy, and renew the American dream.”

This comes a month after McCarthy called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) about her inconsistencies in the House vote.
“Pelosi is fine with House Democrats skipping work when it comes to legislation, but in January she will require every Democrat to personally vote for her as spokeswoman,” McCarthy said, according to Fox News. “Your message is clear: your power is more important than anything else.”

He also said this year will be “the laziest congress in modern history” thanks to Pelosi and her fellow Democrats.
“The House Democrats have planned 101 working days for the next year – a reduction of 25%. Let me say it again: 101 working days. For the whole year. The laziest convention in modern history, ”McCarthy tweeted.
