Republican agenda stalled in the U.S. House of Representatives

Washington, Jun 9 (Prensa Latina) The president of the U.S. House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy, today seeks to break the stalemate in that legislative body, caused by disgruntled conservatives after the debt agreement reached with the White House.

Several Republicans left Washington on Thursday angry and warning that it could take weeks, if not longer, for the House to get back to work, according to a report in The Hill.

Conservatives are furious with the way McCarthy handled last month’s debt ceiling negotiations with the nation’s leader, Joe Biden, and believe their representative caved too easily to Republican deficit reduction demands.

In retaliation, the media outlet recounted, 11 agitators, most of them members of the far-right Freedom Caucus, defied tradition and opposed a procedural motion last Tuesday, blocking four Republican messaging bills from reaching the floor this week.

The lower chamber is scheduled to vote again next Monday, but when that body recessed Thursday, some of the mavericks signaled that the blocking will continue, The Hill added.

Republican Brian Fitzpatrick, a McCarthy ally who co-chairs the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, said the issue will be resolved.
