Michael Lodge, NCPM, CRTP - What happens in the next few hours in Congress will tell us if we have people on our sides, or people against us. Currently what we have in Congress is a majority on the Republican side that can't even decide who will be the speaker of the house. That creates a show of chaos as there is internal fighting going on. What do we need in a speaker?
We need a republican that is as nasty and mean as Pelosi. One who will fight back, argue well, lead well, and unite his majority. Keven McCarthy I am afraid is not that person. He has no back bone, he sounds and acts like a democrat with an "R" by his name. If he becomes speaker we will not have unity in the GOP congress. We should step away from those members of Congress from California and New York. California is viewed as a liberal state, even if you claim you are a conservative republican. There are no conservative in California or New York. Or at lease until they prove themselves. The best bet would be to elect a speaker that is from another state, a conservatives state, that will fight for conservative values.
In business, with a liberal congress , we have been hit hard with inflation from overspending and increasing taxes. As of January 1, 2023 we have a lot of new taxes that will affect the inflation on living in the United States. Heating our homes, gas, transportation, food has increased so much that Americans are now making those hard decision. Do I keep my business open or do I close it. Do I cut back on gasoline so I can feed my family. Credit card debt is the highest in history because wages have not kept up with inflation, and nor can it.
What happens in the choice of speaker makes a big difference on what happens going forward. The republicans have a lot of work to do, no more chit chat, it means getting to work. But to do that, you need a strong leader.
