In the 2018 midterm elections, Republicans lost control of the House of Representatives. However, the Republicans are expected to lose more than a dozen seats by overthrowing several seats in the House of Commons, thus frustrating expectations for the 2020 election cycle.
Both McCarthy and Pelosi have opposed President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan in recent weeks.
On Friday night, two hours before the House of Representatives voted to pass the huge stimulus bill, McCarthy criticized the Democrats for pushing for a relief bill, which he called the “Pelosi Payments Act.”
McCarthy said: “Congress will not actually vote on the bill until 2 a.m. on Saturday.” “Why? Because all non-COVID waste in the bill embarrassed Democrats so much that they blocked it late at night.”
Earlier this month, Pelosi mocked McCarthy’s timid refusal to condemn Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene for past support of the QAnon conspiracy theory.
In a statement issued on February 3, Pelosi’s office said: “After several conversations and escaping from reporters, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Q-CA) made it clear that he refused to challenge conspiracy theorists. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene took action.”
“As a result, the House of Representatives will continue to vote to deprive Green of seats on the Honorable House Education and Labor Committee and the House Budget Committee. Semite, QAnon believer and 9/11 Truther.”
