McCarthy to Taxpayers: "Screw You!"

We kinda expected McCarthy to go all Benedict Arnold.

And he did.

The U.S. House of Representatives today passed a funding bill to avoid a government shutdown, but to also continue the out of control spending that is destroying the nation.

The Continuing Resolution (CR) will keep the government funded for 45 days at current irresposible levels, and passed 335-91.

Speaker McCarthy had to use Democrat votes to get the bill passed as his Republican caucus would not pass the CR....

It will be a while before the votes from Wisconsin congressmen are available.

Biden: "Oil? Who Needs It?"

Continues the pattern.  

...The Biden administration laid out its offshore oil and gas leasing program for the next five years on Friday morning, with only three Gulf of Mexico lease sales through 2029 -- resulting in the fewest offshore oil drilling leases in U.S. history. 

The plan is expected to be finalized by the end of the year. It blocks leasing off the Alaskan coast, Atlantic Ocean and Pacific Ocean. ...

Yet the UAW will endorse Biden, although its membership will vote Trump.
