|Does Kevin McCarthy have the juice?|
Soon I will add Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to the list of many here on World News Today. The California congressman who became a rising star since the departure of Eric Cantor is thinking about becoming the next House Speaker.
K-Mac is the Republican Majority Leader. He represents the 23rd U.S. Congressional District of California. The district carries Bakersfield, a large city with a population of 376,000 residents.
The current district is centered in areas of the southern San Joaquin Valley and southern Sierra Nevada, the Tehachapi Mountains, and the northwestern Mojave Desert. It includes the cities of Mojave and Ridgecrest, as well as most of Bakersfield. Sequoia National Park and Sequoia National Forest are within it.
If he's picked to become the new Speaker, he will have a lot of work ahead of him. He will face an already invigorated President Barack Obama. Obama has won the summer.
Obamacare survived another Supreme Court challenge. Marriage equality is valid in the all states and territories. The Iranian deal will go into effect. Cuba and the United States are establishing friendly relations. Planned Parenthood will not be defunded.
Conservatives are demanding Republicans stand firm against Obama or face a primary challenge.
The president promises that anything the Republicans pass will fail. He concludes that the Republican civil war is damaging the party and hurting the country. The party has become more extreme in their views.
Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) the outgoing Speaker of the House blasted the insurgency. He believes that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Rep. Steve King (R-IA) are false prophets. He believes these politicos are fucking stupid.
He announced on Friday that he's bouncing out of Congress effective immediately. In late October, Boehner will give up his role as the House Speaker and representative. He basically said to Republicans, "Fuck you! I'm Out! Good luck on getting things done with Obama!"
|Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) may become the new House Speaker. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) were Speakers of the House. President Barack Obama believes Republicans infighting causing government shutdown.|
McCarthy on the other hand is hoping the Republicans will give him a chance. The insurgents are really happy with picking McCarthy as the new House Speaker.
Matter of fact, Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL) is plotting to derail McCarthy's coronation.
The insurgent lawmaker announced his bid to become the speaker as well.
The insurgent and establishment are showing teeth. The departure exposed some real bad tension between Republicans.
Kevin Owen McCarthy (born January 26, 1965) is the House majority leader of the United States House of Representatives and the U.S. representative for California's 23rd District.
A Republican, he was formerly chairman of the California Young Republicans and the Young Republican National Federation. McCarthy worked as district director for U.S. Representative Bill Thomas and in 2000 was elected as a trustee to the Kern Community College District. He then served in the California State Assembly from 2002 to 2006, including from 2004 to 2006, as the minority leader. When Thomas retired from the House in 2006, McCarthy ran to succeed him and won the election.
The 23rd district, numbered as the 22nd District from 2007 to 2013, is based in Bakersfield and includes large sections of Kern and Tulare counties.
McCarthy was elected House Republican chief deputy whip, from 2009 to 2011, and House majority whip, from 2011 until August 2014, when he was elected House majority leader to replace the outgoing Eric Cantor, who was defeated in his primary election.
