Both parties are looking ahead to next year’s midterm elections.
Democrats just suffered a setback they never saw coming.
Republicans handed Nancy Pelosi two major defeats that are bad news for 2022.
Democrats and the corporate media are trying to play up divisions in the GOP between Trump and supporters and Never Trumpers are in a fight to tear the GOP apart.
The left believes a Republican Party that cannot unite around Donald Trump’s role can’t coalesce in time to win back the majority in November.
But Republicans just showed Democrats they can unite around defeating Nancy Pelosi’s agenda.
Pelosi tried to ram two controversial bills through the House using a procedure known as “suspension of the rules.”
This speeds up the amount of time it takes to muscle a bill through, but it also requires a two-thirds super majority to vote in favor of it meaning the minority party needs to provide some votes.
First up on Pelosi’s docket was the LGBTQ Business Equal Credit Enforcement and Investment Act which Democrats drafted to grant special privileges in lending to homosexual-owned businesses.
Next was the Equal Access to Contraception for Veterans Act—which allowed for the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide taxpayer-funded abortion drugs.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Republican Congressman Andy Biggs of Arizona crowed about beating back two of Pelosi’s far-left social engineering bills in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.
“What the deal is on these suspension bills, they have to get two thirds to get them across the line,” Biggs exclaimed in the exclusive interview with Breitbart. “The significance of taking down the suspension votes is that the Democrats are trying to change all the rules and traditions of the House and force all of their agenda even if it’s not radical — but the radical parts and the non-radical parts — they’re trying to force it down our throats. Our position has always been that that is — it is that we have to fight on every issue. That’s why we ask for roll call votes on the suspension votes because we want transparency for the American public number one, and number two we want everybody to be recorded on how you vote, and number three we want to put the speed stick down. That’s what that’s been all about.”
Biggs noted that these setbacks proved the tide was turning on the GOP sticking together in the face of Pelosi’s radical agenda.
“The underlying thing here is the Democrats do not believe the Republicans are unified enough to take them down and block them. So far, they’ve been right,” Biggs added. “I can’t tell you how critical this is in my opinion but by taking those down this is a leverage point to try to restore the balance. Right now they’re abusing us and not doing anything through regular order. For instance, they added a bill at the last minute this morning to try to put up. So the reality is that’s what we’re facing. If you don’t fast track it, you slow it down. The other thing is if you start taking some of these down, it gives you leverage points so the Democrats come back to us and say ‘alright, let’s make a deal.’ Maybe, if rationality were to win out, maybe they would come back and say ‘how do we make this thing work?’”
Historically the party in power loses over 20 seats in a midterm election.
That is far above the five seats the GOP needs to flip to reclaim the majority.
Republicans’ best chance to achieve that goal is maintaining the unity they showed in these votes stalling out Nancy Pelosi’s wish list bills.
