Lok SabhachairmanmccarthyOn 23rd, colleagues appealed to everyoneRepublican PartyWorking together to support conservative government budget bills to abandon their far-right tactics and avoid a government shutdown.
The Associated Press reported on the 24th that the House of Representatives is currently in chaos, and McCarthy and his allies are struggling to control the situation; Whether in public appearances or in private phone conversations, he has asked many colleagues on the right who are stubbornly opposed not to further obstruction. After all, the House of Representatives has stalled; I hope they support McCarthy’s latest plan and pass it before next weekend’s September 30 deadline to prevent a federal government shutdown.
Republican Congressman Garrett Graves called the recalcitrants “absolutely dreamers” if they think they can get through next year’s budget bill without resorting to temporary measures.
Graves said at a meeting held on the afternoon of the 23rd that an important part of the strategy to take temporary measures is to ensure that the House of Representatives makes every possible effort to avoid a government shutdown.
But one of the conservative hardliners, Matt Rosendale, walked into a press conference organized by McCarthy’s allies on Capitol Hill and told reporters he was determined. Asked if he was worried about a possible government shutdown, he replied, “Life is going on as usual.”
President Biden condemned on the 23rd that “a small group of extremist Republicans” threatened to shut down the government, and “all of the people of the country will pay the price.” “If the government shuts down, it means the U.S. military will have to continue to serve without pay.” “A government shutdown would affect everything from food security to cancer research to children’s early education. Funding the government is one of Congress’s most basic responsibilities. Now is the time for Republicans to get the party to work. The people voted for them. Chosen and will do whatever they have to do.”
Congress was largely empty over the weekend; The House of Representatives was gridlocked and the White House has directed federal agencies to begin preparing for a possible shutdown.
