January 1, GOP Congresswoman Shreds McCarthy: ‘Start Governing for a Change’



1973: U.S. & North Vietnam’s William Rogers & Nguyen Duy Trinh sign cease-fire, ending the longest U.S. war and military draft.

Rep. Victoria Spartz laid into House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, saying he needs to stop engaging in political spats with Democrats and start focusing on the American people.

The Indiana Republican’s words come in response to McCarthy’s pledge to remove Democratic Reps. Eric Swalwell, Adam Schiff, and Ilhan Omar from their committee assignments.

Spartz released a statement to oppose the action, calling on McCarthy to stop the “bread and circuses” with his colleagues in Congress and to “start governing for a change.”

Two wrongs do not make a right. Speaker Pelosi took unprecedented actions last Congress to remove Reps. Greene and Gosar from their committees without proper due process. Speaker McCarthy is taking unprecedented actions this Congress to deny some committee assignments to the Minority without proper due process again. As I spoke against it on the House floor two years ago, I will not support this charade again. Speaker McCarthy needs to stop “bread and circuses” in Congress and start governing for a change.

The phrase “bread and circuses” originates from a Latin expression that refers to how the ruling class would provide the masses with superficial means to appease them, while distracting them from larger problems.

    The Congress woman should aim to make her time in Congress credit worthy. Speaker McCarthy is doing well. Democrats need this beating. Whenever they come to power it will be more of the same. It is important to show them that they will pay for their malfeasance when they held the gavel.

      I agree democrats are ruthless and need to be taken down a few pegs and experience some of their own medicine!

        Democrats have a tendency to think they are greatest. We all have our faults so democrats suck it up

      Victoria Spartz is just another RINO swamp creature that thinks it’s alright to profit off of taxpayers without doing the job she was elected to do.

      Sandra, I thought that Republicans were concerned about inflation, violence, education? So McCarthy and his minions right off the bat begin investigations about Biden and his son who has not ever been a government employee. What is happening with the job that House members are supposed to do for Americans? Their first agenda is nothing more than ” like middle school students”, get revenge on the other side. What a sad commentary on our country, especially when the Freedom Caucus has control of McCarthy and he does whatever that they demand that he do, because that was the only way that he could become the Speaker of the House. So how long does the American public have to wait for the Republicans to do what they were elected to do: help the American people, ALL America people.

        Ronald, are you awakened yet? If you don’t know all the facts about what is going on in corrupt Washington DC and around the nation, you are intellectually dishonest. There are thousands of videos, lectures, news reports, articles, and TWITTER that have uncovered the unmitigated corruption of this WH, the DOJ and their Media hacks. After the Republican Congress finishes with all the bad players, they need to focus their attention on getting our taxpayer dollars back from the liars and cheaters that stole from us during the satanic pandemic lockdowns perpetrated on us by criminal swamp elitists running the government. The Congress can only help the American people if they recover many of the billions illegally accessed, and get rid of all the pork that the Democrats added into their insane Inflation Reduction Act that doesn’t even do what it was designed to do. And then they need to restore energy independence to bring down gas prices which affect every other area of the economy. The people who caused gas prices to skyrocket are the same criminals that are trying to destroy YOU and me and the Middle Class. They now know that we know their “secret” plans. The border crisis, inflation, and infecting our education system with Marxists globalists has been their plan since JFK was killed. 60 damn years it took them. Let’s kick their a$$es out of OUR GOVERNMENT ASAP before they put us on a path of no return before 2024 when they will get their butts spanked for the next 14 years (assuming the current WH lunatics in charge don’t get us nuked into oblivion by Russia or China).

    I am so disappointed that the Republican party seem unable to pull together. It does not good to vote for them because they destroy each other and the Dems just keep destroying our lives.

      David, good sir, work a little harder on your presentation. I can generally make sense out of the weirdest of sentences, but yours was a lot tougher than it needed to be. Next time you post your thoughts, consider having them checked for punctuation and grammar by using Grammarly or other helpful grammar checker. The readers will thank you and your opinions will at least be better understood by people on both sides of the issue.

    This congress women is out of her mind. There is good reason why these people were removed. Please educate yourself congresswomen and do your research as to why these people needed to be removed. Do not remain politically ignorant.

    Spartz needs to grow up and realize the trash McCarthy is trashing IS aimed at helping the people by keeping said trash out of the decision making from the panels they’re in. I don’t really trust him but so far he’s doen sone good.

    Rep. Victoria Spartz …… That’s what we get with an Immigrant from Ukraine, who gets into our government. Then think they can try to govern.

    He is right. Those 3 don’t deserve to be on those committees for much more than just payback. Security reasons are why he doesn’t want them there.

    Spartz is sounding like a typical Rino establishment Republican. The biggest problem with our government is electing ignorant people. They get on political committees in Congress making decisions about our citizens security, giving away and spending our tax dollars, and they know nothing about anything especially if they have never owned or operated a business. Most of the Dem/Communists are brainless and they prove it every day of their lives.. They are taking away our freedoms every time they put a new regulation in effect. The Dem/Communists love their Woke perverts and or criminals that are offended by everything.. We are becoming a third world country and no one cares, but you will soon.

    I DO have to say that what we hear most is just talk when what we need is some real action in thwarting the Demonrats, period.

    Republicans need to ditch the ‘go-along-to-get-along’ attitude when dealing with modern day Democrats. It doesn’t work with Communists. The Bush’s learned that lesson the hard way and Trump got burned by that strategy also. The ‘new’ Democrats are hardcore Bolshevik Communists who don’t compromise or co-operate. They destroy and dominate their opponents. They don’t ‘reach-across- the-isle’. You have to stand your ground and defeat them, not try to get along with them.
