Rep Wood’s speech contained the following points.
-Republican candidates promised “fiscal responsibility and securing the border”.
– “Thirteen months ago, we roundly condemned the omnibus, the $1.6 trillion omnibus”
-Republicans betrayed the trust of the voters, supported “the very Biden, Pelosi, Schumer policies that are bankrupting the country
-“We’ve got a $200 billion monthly deficit.”
-Why have the Republicans with their majority control in the House not been able to “get half of what your policy priorities are?”
The answer to Rep. Wood’s question was provided by John Fredericks interview of Republican Representative Elise Stefanik who said, “he is fighting for that [border security] and needs a couple more weeks to get that done from his perspective. ”
Representative Wood, a Republican congressman from Virginia, criticized the Republicans support of the Democrat’s budget as can be seen in this Steve Bannon War Room recording:
The War Room With Stephen K Bannon, January 18th, 2024
As Representative Wood said, so eloquently, Americans elected a Republican majority in the house of Representatives based on their candidates promising “fiscal responsibility and securing the border”.
“The more things change, the more things stay the same. Fourteen months ago, we asked the American people to give us the majority. They entrusted us with the majority running primarily on fiscal responsibility and securing the border. Thirteen months ago, we roundly condemned the omnibus, the $1.6 trillion omnibus that was put in place, the Christmas ominous omnibus thirteen months ago.”
But, these elected representatives have betrayed the trust of the voters.
“And yet we’re operating today and, now, extending the very Biden, Pelosi, Schumer policies that are bankrupting the country, destroying the country and under which the American people are suffering today. Suffering us? Yes. Suffering under a record 40 year high inflation, 20 year high interest rate. The average American family paying about $1,000 a month for the same essentials that they were paying $4,000 more a month than they were paying when this president was first elected three years ago.”
In a Republican controlled House of Representatives, Republicans have supported the Biden administrations budget that is creating a spiraling debt because “”We’ve got a $200 billion monthly deficit.”
“We’ve got a $200 billion monthly deficit. Two and a half trillion dollars a year, as has already been said, where $34 trillion in national debt will be 36 trillion by the time we get to this next election. And we have the majority in one half of the legislative branch. When will that begin to account for something? When will that begin to matter for something?”
The question remains, why have the Republicans, with their majority control in the House, not been able to “get half of what your policy priorities are?”
“When you have the majority in one branch or one house or one branch, shouldn’t you get half of what your policy priorities are? Shouldn’t you get half of your spending objective? And yet what we seem to do over and over, we decide what the Senate will take, what the president will sign, and that’s what we send to the other body.”
John Fredericks interviewed Republican Representative Elise Stefanik on THE WAR ROOM WITH STEPHEN K. BANNON EPISODE 3332 PART 2 about Speaker Johnson and a group of Republican representatives who supported these bankrupting Democrat budgets. She was one of over 100 Republican representatives that did not vote in favor of these financial policies. He asked her why Speaker Johnson keeps supporting the Democrat spending money that we do not have and print money to pay for these budgets that put us into deeper debt.
“You’re in leadership in the House. You were one of 100 people and one of several in leadership to vote against the spending bill,[which is] a vote against your speaker. Can you give us some insight into why the sell out? What is going on there and what is your position now?”
Rep. Stefanik responded:
“I think because we want to continue giving the speaker the ability to fight for border security, that is a top concern… And he is fighting for that and needs a couple more weeks to get that done from his perspective. And again, I respect the speaker. I’m proud to support the speaker. He got unanimous Republican support on the floor. And he is a very principled conservative who is going to stand up and hold Joe Biden accountable.”
USACN does not understand Rep Stefanik’s defense of Speaker Johnson’s support for Democrat spending policies. In fact, there is no defense. He is doing what former Speaker McCarthy did, support the bankrupting policies of the Democrats and their woke policies that are destroying the fabric of our great Republic.
We think it is time that Speaker Johnson be removed for a Republican that will use their slim majority to cut spending, defend our borders, and address the dangerous international threats that confront us.
