In a Monday op-ed, Gaetz wrote:
We should cease the fiscal madness in Washington and get our spending underneath management. I’m not voting for a unbroken decision that funds Jack Smith’s election interference, harmful chaos on the southern border, and cash for the countless struggle in Ukraine.
Just take into consideration what it means for Congress to manipulate by Continuing Resolution. Every time we vote for a unbroken decision, we make no adjustments in coverage or spending. It’s a vote to proceed the established order. If that’s all Congress goes to do, simply change us with AI bots, as a result of we aren’t doing something. The hearings are enjoyable, however it’s the budgets the place actual coverage adjustments are made.
Of course, there is not any Republican within the House who each needs the job and may get the votes, after Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) stated he is out.
