Conservatives Rebel Against Emerging Deal

The House Freedom Caucus sent a letter to Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) with new demands for a debt ceiling deal and urging GOP unity.

Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) to HuffPost: “I am concerned about rumors to the effect — and I haven’t read or seen anything yet — but rumors that we may have some sort of a deal in place that would raise the debt limit for more than what was called for in [the House debt-ceiling bill passed in April] for a whole lot less in return. … If that were true, that would absolutely collapse the Republican majority for this debt ceiling increase.”

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) in a radio interview: “I am going to have to go have some blunt conversations with my colleagues and the leadership team. I don’t like the direction they are headed.”

The subtext is whether McCarthy will be able to keep his job.
