GOP Willing to Take Government Shutdown Head-On to Stop Biden
Conservative leaders are urging Republicans in Congress to take a government shutdown fight “head-on” and reject the Continuing Resolution (CR) proposed by leadership. The goal? To disrupt the Washington Swamp’s playbook and force reforms to Democrats’ failed policies. This could mean a government shutdown is worth stopping Biden’s agenda.
The letter produced by the Conservative Action Project (CAP) has been signed by 101 conservative leaders nationwide. They argue that conservatives should not accept the spending levels and policies of Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi – which they claim is what the ‘clean’ Continuing Resolution proposed by Speaker McCarthy and Leader McConnell would do.
They are also urging Republicans in Congress not to pass any spending bills without policy reforms attached. This includes securing the open border, addressing the weaponization of federal law enforcement, and abating the progressive policies being implemented at the Pentagon.
The letter states, “Conservatives are ready with reforms. If congressional Democrats would rather shut down the government than secure America, then congressional Republicans must take that fight head-on.”
Edwin Meese III, former U.S. Attorney General and Founding Chairman of CAP; Ken Blackwell, former U.S. Ambassador and Chairman of CAP; and Rebecca Weber, CEO, Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC), are among the signatories of the letter.
Ambassador Ken Blackwell, chairman of CAP, said in a statement, “Conservatives demand that House GOP leadership stand strong against threats of a government shutdown if necessary to secure our borders, de-weaponize the Justice Department, and de-woke our military.”
This move by conservative leaders is a clear message to the Republican party and the nation: they believe it’s time to stand up against the current administration’s policies and fight for what they believe in, even if that means risking a government shutdown. They argue that it’s not just about political power, but about the future of the country and the values it stands for.
