Congresswoman Kat Cammack Slams GOP, Says She’s ‘Sick’ Of Weak Leadership While Dems Continue To Run ‘Lawless’
Rep. Kat Cammack, a Republican from Florida, recently let the Republican Party have it with both barrels blazing stating that she’s “sick and tired” of weak GOP leadership not taking a stand against President Joe Biden and other Democrats that she believes are running “lawless.”
”I ran for office because I was sick and tired of weak leadership, of weak Republicans not standing up for our Constitution and our country,” Cammack went on to say during an interview Friday on ”The Chris Salcedo Show.” ”No, we do not have the votes, but there is a litany of other things that we can be doing.”
Cammack expressed her frustration at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., for giving Democrats a way out of the debt ceiling dilemma by helping them pass a resolution to fund the government through December, effectively taking away Republicans’ leverage in trying to block two major Democratic spending bills.
”This latest capitulation on the debt ceiling is lost on me,” Cammack added. ”Maybe I’m just too blond to figure it out, but I’m not quite sure where he thought it was a win to cave to [Senate Majority Leader Chuck] Schumer and the Democrats, which, as you pointed out, they turned around and kicked [Republicans] right in the teeth.”
After McConnell made it possible for the bipartisan vote to punt the debt ceiling increase to December, Schumer, D-N.Y., took to the Senate floor, blasting the GOP for being ”irresponsible” with its ”brinksmanship” on the issue.
”Republicans played a risky and partisan game, and I’m glad their brinksmanship did not work,” Schumer said. ”For the good of America’s families, for the good of our economy, Republicans must recognize in the future that they should approach fixing the debt limit in a bipartisan way,” Schumer fumed.
Schumer’s venom was unleashed because the GOP initially told Democrats that they would have to raise the debt limit on their own because they were unilaterally pushing through both the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and a $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill full of Democratic wish list items without any Republican votes in the Senate.
Meanwhile, Cammack said, the president continues to ignore a U.S. Supreme Court order to reinstate former President Donald Trump’s ”Remain in Mexico” policy for migrants who have entered the U.S. illegally. The policy would make them stay south of the border until their cases were heard in court.
President Biden signed an executive order during his first day in office that overturned President Trump’s policies concerning the border.
Ever since then, a million migrants have managed to cross the southern border illegally, constantly breaking monthly records and topping other records that were decades old, according to reports coming out of the Customs and Border Protection agency.
”If this administration will not call it or deem it a crisis, Congress sure as hell will,” the congresswoman said. ”This provision includes troops getting sent to the border. So Biden can whine, bitch, moan and complain all he wants.”
”But he is going to have to, at some point or another, and of course, his infamous border ”czar,” Vice President [Kamala] Harris are going to have to come to terms with the fact that Congress has declared this a crisis,” she said in conclusion.
