    1. VOTE CORRUPT McCarthy & turtle, cancun ted, gosar, clyde, greene etc. VOTE corrupt GOP OUT!!!!!

    2. @Rachel Stone sadly there are jackasses that will continue for those congress members that have a few screws loose

    3. Karen Rowland
      right, and Pelosi Schumer, AOC, Omar, Schiff, or just name any Democrats don’t want power. Funny, you can’t prove that with the 2020 election.

    4. Yep, McCarthy is like Gym Jordan. Lives to hear himself talk in circles and says nothing of substance. Never offers solutions, just pushes the Trump false propaganda.

    5. @Alex Hamilton No they don’t want power. They understand the concept of public service unlike the average Republican who seems full of self interest.

  1. McConnell & McCarthy should be indicted and jailed.
    Any ardent supporter of DT is guilty of something nefarious

    1. @Deanna Delmar It’s not vengeance, it is just desserts. You do the crime, you do the time.
      Do you think all the people in jail should be free?

    1. @My Pillow Guy Popcorn ran out. Tequila for a while until my liver got mad. Now it’s hot links and black coffee. Whatever it takes, right?

    2. It was already the second place party in terms of registration. This is the beginning of the end for them.

  2. Love hearing from the brilliant Congressman Jeffries, he utterly nailed that loser McCarthy.

    1. @Hans van Dijk Hi. Canada here. And I can remember that, even before he ended up winning, I was thinking “dump the Trump”.

    2. Congressman Jeffries make me believe not all in Washington are looking out for their pockets and self.

    3. @This is America I know what you mean. Nice to know there are at least some there who aren’t corrupt, crazy, or both.

  3. I am still hoping Republicans in the public at large will see the B.S. and stop being loyal to them and more Loyal to the principals of our Democracy. 45 is a train wreck and Republicans are still clinging on as it goes off the rails.

    1. @Muddy Water not gonna even address your question….since it appears you’re likely a Fox News viewer or Newsmaxx, OAN or some other entertainment source. Folks just don’t waste your time reasoning with this one.

    2. @S McDonald OMG! That was the greatest response! I don’t know why these clowns get on here because a smart and liberal minded person is going to put them in their place! Great job S!

    3. rwhunt99 funny . I have been hoping the dame about the portion of Democrats who have not swallowed the BS from the left

    4. @El Cruzer Not from “fox entertainment” who had to admit they can’t be taken seriously.

    5. Jeffrey Snipes—
      Actually you don’t “justify” logic, you prove it. And “your” not capable of anything, you’re capable (or not) OF debating, not “to” debating. Hope this helps son.

    1. @Alex Hamilton repubs are all about white identity grievance and politics to the total exclusion of a governing platform other than obstructionism…for crying out loud they ditched the party platform to go all in on trump’s promises after their 2020 convention

    2. It is warfare, I can’t help feeling they need to be tried as traitors & go to Guantanamo bay, with no trials offered the people who have been sent there without one.

    3. @Phillip Pinson excuse me? No one believes anything, we vote the choices we are given. What is your point?
      Are you a Retrumplican or just some troll making snide comments?

  4. Donald Trump did drain a lot of the swamp like you said he was going to. Just never knew he was talking about his own Administration! LOL

    1. @Muddy Water believes propaganda so much he passes it on in his own hateful advertisements.
      It’s obsessed with biden, aoc and harris
      Look at it’s crazy and often contradictory past comments as examples of it’s obsessing. So pathetic it makes everyone laugh.

      Also it’s profile owner is a convicted felon and “registered” abuser. Facts

    2. @Muddy Water It’s not just the Europeans. All democracies are on notice to ensure that they have enough checks and balances to avoid the circus created by trump. Throughout 2020 the statement “at least we aren’t in America” was a common one in Australia. Many Australians are politically aware and most Australians call a spade a spade. We do not worship politicians as their positions are the result of our votes and so our voting process is straightforward and consistent throughout the nation. They work for us. If the politicians are seen to be pushing falsehoods, both the media and the public call them out. It is based on facts, not labels such as “socialist” “communist”, “conservative,” “left”, etc. Currently we have a conservative government, but there are several other parties vying for our votes in the next election. We look at their policies and plans to achieve goals, not empty promises and false illusions.

    3. @JB hi I live in Australia and you make a lot of sense to me – how were Americans ever persuaded to give republican policy credibility – I know I know I know – by shouting communist and socialist at the top of the voices to any sensible policy idea that would be of benefit to the American people why they (Americans citizens) cant see how republican policy has impoverished the vast majority while making a very few very wealthy is hard for me to understand – mind you if I was living an america and subject to the kind of right wing self serving nonsense dished up everyday for the last 40 years I might have fallen for it also

  5. Hey McCarthy and McConnell, we don’t have to go back to reopening the 2017 tax plan, we will do a NEW 2021 tax plan!

    1. Hankakah
      yes, and to your surprise if the Democrats have their way you are going to pay big 😀

    2. @Alex Hamilton actually Trump’s tax cuts raise taxes on middle America this year. Enjoy your higher taxes you’ll pay this year all to give to greedy corporate officers and bail out companies that don’t pay livable wages.

    3. @Alex Hamilton . What are talking about. We’re going to pay big. I don’t think thing’s can get worst than what crazy trump left. Chaos and corruption in trump’s administration is going to take decades to fix. Trump is a traitor and the Republicans are the same.

    1. @Pj Romanov It will come out the more they investigate Barr and the Mueller report, and all the Trump administration that didn’t come in for testimony in front of the commission. It’s Russia for sure, everyone indicted so far had ties to Russia. The only ones with ties to China was Trump and Ivanka, and OH , what is this? She got a trademark from China to make VOTING MACHINES!

    3. @Hankakah Biden is an empty suit being run by Obama & co. CCP thinks they were given America as a prize..
      Think again . We The People will have a free and decent nation again- very soon. Those who tried to destroy her shall be either put to . Or rot in prison for high treason and/ or crimes against humanity.
      Chew on that truth!

  6. Matt Gaetz must have misunderstood when he was told people use Venmo to make minor purchases.

    1. I took my daughter for lunch. The hostess asked how many. I said 2, 1 adult, 1 child.
      She said, welcome Mr Gaetz.

    2. I am pretty sick and tired of reading this. Give it up. After awhile you start to hate something that’s shoved in your face constantly. Go away.

    3. @missinglew I admit that Ann has used that particular joke a few too many times. But Ann has been a consistent source of ratpublican-stomping humor for a year or more, if I’m not mistaken. If you don’t like that, GTFOH you old stale FART

    4. @Teo’s Mum-mum Weo Why does it bother you? Let I suggest that you spit out that filthy orange toadstool – it’s bad for your health

    1. GOP = Government of Putin! That’s why they love Crooked Trump so much — because he has been appointed by Putin to take over America and through him was where Putin relayed his orders to tell the GOP how he wanted the US to be run!

      GOP is the largest criminal organization in the entire world! Worst, it has a stranglehold over the US government and operates its criminal activities from within the US government! Another 4 more years of the GOP controlling our country and this country would have been annexed by Russia! That’s how close we were in becoming a territory of communist Russia! Thanks God that orange traitorous crook got booted out of office by Joe Biden, the savior of the USA!

  7. YES. Thank you for calling the GQP tax bill what it is. It was NOT “reform”, it was a tax scam!

    1. H K S
      yes and as gas prices , food prices, taxes for everyone goes up, the rich will still get richer because unlike the jealous Democrats they know how to make money.
      I know you have no clue of this, but the Rich actually get richer when Democrats are in control LOL

    2. the GOP TAX SCAM. The American People are literally paying for that scam. When it came to President Biden’s COVID package the Republicans didnt want to pass it because they said “the deficit” yet when it came to the tax scam they added 2 trillion to the deficit FOR THE RICH!!!

    3. The one thing the republicans don’t want to touch the 2017 tax break scam. Believe we always knew to them it’s more about the money than America and All Americans. .

  8. Correction to your headline. He called it a “‘Toxic Three Ring Circus,'” an apt description.

    1. Correction: the GOP isn’t a circus, it is a criminal organization! In fact, GOP stands for Government of Putin!

      *Remember: GOP = Government of Putin!* That’s why they love Crooked Trump so much — because he has been appointed by Putin to take over America and through him was where Putin relayed his orders to tell the GOP how he wanted the US to be run!

      GOP is the largest criminal organization in the entire world! Worst, it has a stranglehold over the US government and operates its criminal activities from within the US government! Another 4 more years of the GOP controlling our country and this country would have been annexed by Russia! That’s how close we were in becoming a territory of communist Russia! Thanks God that orange traitorous crook got booted out of office by Joe Biden, the savior of the USA!

  9. Stop trying to work with them. They’re not interested in compromise

  10. Everyone forgets to mention that the 2017 tax scam was not just a one time gift. It’s YEARLY!!!!

  11. So much for public servants, vote them out! We need to get things fixed or moving forward. Bunch of clowns.!!!

    1. Francisco Vasquez right. If the Democrat leadership has their way , you will be their servant and dressed up in a clown suit one day.

  12. They are no longer intrested in serving the people. Everything the GOP is doing is part of a large Grift to line their pockets straight out of the Trump playbook. Lie to detract .

    1. John Dozier
      yeah sure. Like the Democrats in Congress aren’t filling their pockets. In fact they are trying to rig the system so they can have complete power for ever. Now that is Communism,

    1. THEY ARE!!! Republicans literally have NO PLANS AT ALL, they ran on NO PLATFORM last year and they’re still running on no platform but stop President Biden from helping the American people…. that’s why they’re attacking his son, the VP and things that don’t matter because his plans are popular with all voting groups!

    2. You guys have it all wrong, they do have a plan — it is to make the rich even richer! Beside that their other plan is to bend the law so that they and their master criminal Crooked Trump would get away with stealing from the American tax payers with all of the grifting and crimes that they are committing!
