Republican Congressman Chip Roy of Texas admitted at a private event in June that the GOP’s strategy leading up to next year’s midterm elections is to prevent President Joe Biden and the Democrats from getting anything meaningful done.
Roy explained at a Patriot Voices event on June 29th that there is no hope for any bipartisan infrastructure legislation to emerge in the House of Representatives and that the only hope for the two parties to cooperate is if a bipartisan bill originates in the United States Senate
“Honestly, right now, for the next 18 months, our job is to do everything we can to slow all of that down to get to December of 2022, and then get in here and lead,” Roy said in a video that was posted to Twitter on Tuesday.
The people who were working to cut the deal, by the way, were not your conservative warriors in the Senate. And so they’re cutting a deal, but then Biden, who came out and said ‘We have a deal,’ allowed Pelosi to basically kind of step in and go, ‘Whoop, no you don’t. You’re only gonna get that deal if you have reconciliation with all this liberal garbage. And then Biden said, ‘Ok, yeah.’ And they kind of backed away from the deal. Then he kind of came back away from the veto threat, so nobody knows what anybody’s gonna do right now. That’s the thing. This is the problem. I actually say, thank the Lord. Eighteen more months of chaos and the inability to get stuff done. That’s what we want.
