After their clown show of 15 attempts, Republicans have finally managed to elect a Speaker of the House of Representatives. To the embarrassment of the country, the MAGA wing has taken control of the Republican party and the level of dysfunction on display is a sign of how they will work in this session of Congress.
Extremists on the right have extracted a promise from McCarthy to try to shut down the economy and prevent the U.S. from paying its bills on time when the debt ceiling limit comes up, and to try to gut Social Security and Medicare. The new phase of our effort to defeat MAGA and Trumpism will involve limiting the damage the MAGA House does, and making sure voters know about MAGA extremism.
