During a recent episode of Rep. Matt Gaetz’s “Firebrand” podcast, Rep. Gaetz hosted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, where Rep. Gaetz asked the Georgia congresswoman’s take on what Republicans need to do while moving forward.
“Here we are, huddled up in the Judicial Library, and you have been taking the action right to the minority leader on some of these critical issues that define how the Republicans fight. Give everybody an update on the expectations that you’ve laid out for [Minority] Leader McCarthy and how he’s reacted to that.”
Rep. Greene responded by noting how she, and others like Rep. Paul Gosar, have been stripped of committees and censured with hardly a fight out of Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy – while also adding that he’s yet to take action against the RINOs in the party.
“Thank you, Matt. You’ve done such a good job pointing out the failures that we’ve seen in leadership. Number one, everyone saw me get stripped of committees as a brand new member of Congress, robbing my district of the ability to have representation, working on committees, there was no action taken – as a matter of fact – our leader did nothing to defend me. Did nothing to stop it.
Then we saw today, Paul Gosar censured, and we saw him lose a committee – and this is another failure. But what do we see happening? Thirteen traitor Republicans help Joe Biden pass his agenda, handing their voting card over to Nancy Pelosi and nothing happens to them?”
The Georgia congresswoman stated that for Republicans to get the party on the right track, they need to move forward with a consistent plan – and with the prospect of regaining control of the House come the 2022 midterms, House Minority Leader McCarthy may not find himself as the elected House Speaker.
“So here’s what we have to have; I think we feel confident that in ’22 we’re going to take back the House but we have to take back the House with Republicans with a plan that are actually going to put it into action instead of talk about it on Fox News. And that is what I wanna see happen.
So, here’s what leadership is going to have to do – right now we know that Kevin McCarthy has a problem in our conference – he doesn’t have the full support to be speaker. He doesn’t have the votes that are there because there’s many of us that are very unhappy about the failure to hold Republicans accountable while conservatives like me, Paul Gosar, and many others just constantly take the abuse by the Democrats. The American people aren’t going to have it.”
