McCarthy: GOP Will Hold Biden ‘Accountable’ When It Retakes the House
'We will provide to the American public a commitment to America'
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) weighed in on Joe Biden’s abysmal polling numbers.
During “Fox News Sunday,” McCarthy predicted that the GOP would take control of the House before holding the Biden administration accountable for its “irresponsible” policies.
“[T]he one thing you have to look at — why is the president’s approval numbers are so low? It’s the wasteful, irresponsible spending that has led to higher prices and inflation,” McCarthy asserted.
“It’s the irresponsible actions of this president along the border that has led to an immigration and a fentanyl crisis," he added.
"It’s the irresponsible policies of this administration that has led to dangerous streets; ineffective schools, and that has got to stop," he said.
"But it’s got to be more than just to criticize them."
"What Americans want, need, and deserve is a clear, common-sense alternative," he said.
"And that is what is happening with the House Republicans," McCarthy added.
"We will provide to the American public a commitment to America.”
He later added:
“If you believe these irresponsible policies are wrong, you want a new direction, you want to hold this administration accountable, I believe join with us, and we can hold this administration accountable and make the next century the American century.”
Last month, McCarthy warned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of a big Republican win in November and another victory in January, predicting the majority party would overwhelmingly choose him as speaker.
McCarthy said he's confident that Republicans will win the net gain of more than five seats which would be required to push Pelosi out of the speaker’s chair.
“We will win the majority,” said Mr. McCarthy, 57.
“I believe I will be speaker.”
McCarthy raised a record $72 million in 2021 and gave much of it to House Republican candidates, many of whom he recruited.
He provided another large sum to the campaigns of vulnerable Republicans running for reelection.
