Inside Mike Johnson’s Big Shift in Strategy

“With few options and the shutdown clock ticking, Speaker Mike Johnson is trying to do what he can to shift the dynamics of the government funding debate,” Punchbowl News reports.

“For the first time, Johnson is making explicit to Democrats and the White House that he’s willing to shut down federal agencies unless he has a global agreement – of sorts – on all 12 FY 2024 appropriations bills.”

Key takeaway: “These kinds of course changes have become a hallmark of Johnson’s speakership. Plans shift drastically without much notice. Lawmakers are often settling into one strategy when the entire scheme changes. It’s neck snapping.”
