Kevin McCarthy Challenges Democrats To Name One Problem They’ve Solved Since Winning The Majority

Molly Prince on April 10, 2019

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy challenged Democrats on Wednesday to list the problems, if any, that the House of Representatives has solved under the new Democratic leadership.

“We are three days away from the 100-day mark of Democrats holding the majority of the House … and you can sum up the first hundred days in three words: radicalism, resistance and resolutions,” McCarthy said during a press conference outside the Capitol Building.

“I have one question for the Democrats after 100 days,” he continued. “What have you accomplished?”

McCarthy noted the House was scheduled to vote on a two-year budget plan, but that Speaker Nancy Pelosi abandoned the vote after the progressive wing of her caucus demanded more spending on social programs and revolted against the legislation.

“Nancy Pelosi is famous for years saying ‘show me your budget, show me your values,’ but today there will be no budget, and I question what their values stand for,” McCarthy said, stating that Democrats allowed “the socialist wing of their party to overtake it.”

“One-fifth of everything we have done on this floor for the last 100 days has been non-binding resolutions,” the California Republican told the crowd. “They took one up on health care that was going nowhere, but think, if we spent one-fifth of our time on lowering premiums, on working to bring greater choice or greater quality. Think if we spent one-fifth of our time to secure our border on the crisis that we have today, or think for a moment that if we spent one-fifth of our time stopping infanticide.”

“Imagine what the Democrats have not done in those 100 days,” said McCarthy, reminding bystanders that the Senate bill to stand with Israel and end the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement is sitting on Pelosi’s desk. He also added House Republicans have requested unanimous consent on 31 separate occasions to take up legislation that would require medical care for babies who survive abortions.

“Later today [Democrats] will leave and go on their retreat,” he said. “They have many speakers. They’ve invited celebrities, not to perform, but to tell them what the ‘values’ of hardworking Americans are.”

“Name me one problem you have solved because the direction of the new radicalism, resistance and resolutions is not the direction America wants,” McCarthy concluded. “America deserves better.”

  • LMAO did anyone who reads the PI actually believed the DNCs nagst driven campaign to take back the lower House had anything to do with fixing problems or making the lives of American citizens better? That is funny.

  • The reason Democrats have not achieved one objective is simply because they are mired
    with Partisan political issues which involve the overthrow of our President, Donald J. Trump. Democrats have forgotten we the people are the ones who sent them to serve us.
    Democrats are so afraid to let President Trump achieve one more of his promises, because in doing so, will result in the biggest loss for them in the 2020 election. We have
    never had a President, who works for free, achieve what he promised and is making America Great again. His position is unprecedented inn our history as a Nation. An Independently wealthy he had no need to step in and lead our nation, because America
    had been thrown to the dogs and would possibly become a social society, by the corrupted previous administration. Yes, and it was a black men, a Muslim and an empty suit, who the Democrats and the nowflakes and Liberals, chose to succeed President
    Bush. Now we see that the Obama administration was full of traitors who in their own
    way, wanted to stage a coup and eject our duly elected President. By the Grace of God,
    their ploy failed miserably and now they must pay for the treason they perpetrated. They
    must not forget, we are not a :"Banana Republic"

  • While the arrogant, egotistical, apologizing touring PUPPET flew around the world in his new jet taxi-cab! Never been rich before and showed it; by biting the gullible and clueless hands that FED him! All the way to their elbows! For the first year, while the REAL power was in Washington working in "The Dark", he continued to put some serious mileage on #1 jet, taking his own entourage to show off his new wealth! Not ONE single Republican (except the RINO'S) was allowed to read it, and not a single one SIGNED it! How many Republicans signed present? Or were they afraid to? If 0'B hadn't threatened JR, it would have never passed!

  • What "pitches them off', Green, is President Trump has put a LOCK on the barn door so the "Dinner Cats" can no longer MILK our country cows! They squeeze every drop of their "milk" out then starve them! Giving their (OUR) feed to the radical "Feral Farmer" next door to feed his Donkey's! Now, WHAT is; another word for 'donkey"?

  • Kevin; I don't think you're being very fair! Of COURSE; The Laxidasical Left Liberals have not accomplished anything! Of course; The "Depends Brigade" has been fighting with the "Diaper Brigade" since last November, just like I predicted after the mid terms! Of COURSE; The LAST thing they want is what's best for our beloved country! But to say they haven't accomplished anything, look at the MILLIONS of dollars they've spent donating to each other (with tax-payer dollars, of course), for whatever they need or want, but most of all; LOOK at the TIME they've spent not accomplishing anything! As my barely 1.5 yrs old family member says when we tell him NO; Kebbin; "Shame you seff'!

  • They passed it before anyone could read it, and LIED about what it would do !
    One of the worst lies that was said by Barack Obama was "Yes, you will be able to keep your own Doctor", absolutely UNTRUE !

  • what have they done. hmmmm, let's see, they have set race relations back, like obumboy did. they have almost started a civil war,in the u.s., they have dug so many holes to hide in, when lady justice finally comes calling. they have, but hell, do i need to go on. we all know what they did, still doing, and didn't do.
