Former Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy announced his retirement in a Wall Street Journal op-ed:
It is in this spirit that I have decided to depart the House at the end of this year to serve America in new ways. I know my work is only getting started.
I will continue to recruit our country’s best and brightest to run for elected office. The Republican Party is expanding every day, and I am committed to lending my experience to support the next generation of leaders.
It often seems that the more Washington does, the worse America gets. I started my career as a small-business owner, and I look forward to helping entrepreneurs and risk-takers reach their full potential. The challenges we face are more likely to be solved by innovation than legislation.
(Weird how he chose a publication with a paywall. I’m trying to make it accessible to you guys, but it’s not working at Archive.is or me making it a permalink.)
You know what caught my eye? This part: “It often seems that the more Washington does, the worse America gets.”
Then shrink the government. It’s so crazy, I know.
Again, maybe you and those in your party in the House should have shrunk the government, making it easier for us normies to succeed.
Can you tell I cannot stand politicians? Blech.
McCarthy bragged about the “positives” during his time as party leader and his short stint as speaker. But we all know he is as “big government” as the next politician.
McCarthy thinks he’s taking the high road, but by not finishing his term and leaving right after his ouster, to me at least, he comes off as a whining toddler because he didn’t get his way.
Our Founders wanted gridlock. They wanted to make it as difficult as possible for the central government to *do* anything. Let’s get back to that.
These positions were never meant to be a full-time job or a career. I’m going to look and see if McCarthy made the majority of his money while in Congress like Pelosi and others.DONATE
