The Daily Caller is calling McCarthy's debt deal a win, but they're also admitting...
It's not everything conservatives want.
Sure, McCarthy DID get a deal done with Joe Biden. However, in order to get that deal done, McCarthy had to agree to increase America's debt by another $4 TRILLION.
There's another thing that conservatives are up in arms about:
McCarthy made the idea of reigning in America's IRS central to his pitch to make him Speaker of the House. When it came time to walk the walk, McCarthy wasn't able to do it.
The New York Post is defining McCarthy's failure as breaking "his promise to defund President Biden’s massive $80 billion to turbocharge an already weaponized IRS."
So, despite Republicans taking back the House on promises like controlling the IRS and needing fiscal responsibility in America, it doesn't appear as if they're leader is fully committed to delivering on those promises.
"Our very first bill will repeal the funding for 87,000 new IRS agents," McCarthy claimed back then. "You see, we believe government should be to help you, not go after you."
To make matters worse, McCarthy's first bang of the gavel during the new Republican-controlled house was done as he asserted "promises made."
He forgot that making promises was the easy part. It's keeping them that is hard.
McCarthy might think he did his best. After all, he did knock off a little over 2% of the new funding that was supposed to go to America's IRS.
GOP Representative Dan Bishop was NOT impressed with this, however.
"So there will be 85,260 more IRS agents rather than 87,000 to eat you alive. Big win."
What do you think? Did McCarthy sell out America and break his promises? Or did he do all he possibly could in a losing situation to make sure that America got at least a little win?
