A Deal's a Deal.


TOPIC: Kevin McCarthy's failure to uphold his deal with the 20 costs him the speakership.


MONEYLINE:

"We've predicted this result the entire time."

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • McCarthy’s leadership was always viewed with a degree of skepticism.

  • Specific agreements on spending and bill passage were established, but Kevin violated these agreements between the debt limit negotiations and the recent continuing resolution.

  • The caucus was willing to take a risk but demanded adherence to agreed-upon guidelines. McCarthy did not uphold his end of the deal, so Gaetz upheld his - to use the motion to vacate.

  • McCarthy’s leadership was expected to either be highly successful or short-lived, now we know the answer.
