‘Democrats are destroying this nation’: Rep. McCarthy
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy points to ‘the largest missed jobs report’ in more than two decades, the ‘destruction of our energy’ and the migrant surge at the southern border as reasons for why he believes the Democrats are hurting America.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., argued on Sunday that in order to “defeat” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the socialist agenda, Republicans “need to be united.”
McCarthy made the comment during an exclusive interview with “Sunday Morning Futures” days before House Republicans will vote to potentially strip Rep. Liz Cheney, Wyo., of her No. 3 GOP leadership position, which McCarthy called “one of the most critical jobs.”
Cheney, who is the most high profile of the 10 House Republicans to vote in January to impeach then-President Trump for inciting the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by right-wing extremists, also faces a major headache back home in Wyoming, as Republicans are plotting to oust her as the state’s lone representative in Congress when she’s up for re-election next year.
McCarthy stressed the importance of being united given Democrats are “destroying” the country. He pointed to “the largest missed jobs report” in more than two decades, the “destruction of our energy” and the migrant surge at the southern border as reasons why he believes Democrats are hurting America.
The unemployment rate unexpectedly rose to 6.1% — while it’s still well below the April 2020 peak of 14.7%, it’s about twice the pre-crisis level, the Labor Department revealed in its monthly payroll report released Friday.
