Did He Take Pee Breaks or Sit Down Any?

Ok, I’m being silly about something quite serious.

Longest Floor Speech in History, Rep. McCarthy Condemns BBB – PJ Media

But Democrats did mock him for it. I guess mockery is all they have.

McCarthy didn’t waste his opportunity. For the next 8 1/2 hours, the minority leader made the case and put the Republicans firmly on the record as being united in their opposition to Joe Biden and the Democrats’ plans to try and turn America into something it never was and was never supposed to be.

Fox Business:

McCarthy said Democratic lawmakers were “out of touch” with the needs and wishes of ordinary Americans. Republicans universally oppose the legislation, which they denounce as a fiscally irresponsible initiative that will exacerbate the inflation crisis, damage the long-term economy, and introduce to large a degree of socialism.

“Never in American history has so much been spent at one time,” McCarthy said. “Never in American history will so many taxes be raised and so much borrowing be needed to pay for all this reckless spending.”

In the lead-up to the vote, the Congressional Budget Office released its score for the bill, claiming it would raise the deficit by $367 billion over the next ten years. But the CBO based that score on the ludicrous notion that “reforming” the IRS would bring in a robust $260 billion.

Yeah, that’s gonna happen. And the CBO’s estimates are going to be low. They’re assuming a lot of things that are unlikely to happen, as I’ve discussed many times in the past.

And, I would be remiss if I did not point out the childishness of the Democrats:

Democrats hooted and jeered at McCarthy for most of his speech — just what you’d expect from a bunch of adolescent morons.

Yahoo News:

At one point, he quoted Rep. Abigail Spanberger, D-Va., saying Americans didn’t elect Biden to be FDR, to which Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., interrupted and yelled, “I did!”

McCarthy added he could wait for Democrats to stop talking. “Keep going,” Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, yelled back. “No one is listening.”

Send them back to pre-school.
