House Republicans vow to boot radical Democrats from committees when they take over Congress majority | One America News Network (oann.com)

Probably the only thing they can do at this point. I think the GOP made a strategic error here early on.

When the Democrats booted GOP members from committees, the members should have just shown up anyway, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA-22) in tow, saying that they didn’t recognize the authority of the Democrats to make such decisions.

That would have caused a floor fight and a determination of the Rules. And it might have gone the GOP’s way with such a slim Democrat majority.

But, for whatever reason, the GOP didn’t fight it this way. So, now they have to escalate. They will kick out members of the Democratic Party in retribution, likely far more than the Democrats have done. The media will be on the side of the Democrats, but will be interesting to see how they attempt to spin it.

Republicans in the House have said they’re ready to fight back against Democrats, suggesting the same treatment the “America First” GOP representatives have received.

According to recent reports, many radical House Democrats are at risk of losing their committee assignments if Republicans take back the majority in the House. This, after Democrats voted to strip GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.) from their committee assignments.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) vowed to give back Greene and Gosar’s committee assignments when Republicans retake the majority in 2022.

Certainly many of the Democrats have said and done things that the GOP will be able to attack and criticize in their efforts to remove them. Get ready for an even more partisan House.
