McCarthy Quells Revolt for Now

Punchbowl News: “For his part, McCarthy faced deep unhappiness from the House Freedom Caucus over the legislation. A total of 29 Republicans voted against the rule for the Fiscal Responsibility Act, forcing House GOP leaders to turn to Democrats to pass the rule.”

“At other times, such a move would be considered a direct challenge to the leadership. In this case, the conservative opposition was widely telegraphed ahead of time, and it’s not expected to result in repercussions for those GOP lawmakers.”

“There is some chatter about conservatives trying to remove McCarthy using the motion to vacate, but the speaker’s team is confident they can beat that back.”
