Marathon House Speech Pays Off Big League for McCarthy

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) went old-school to try to block Democrat legislation last week.

McCarthy gave a marathon 8.5-hour speech on the floor in what amounted to be a verbal filibuster to delay the House vote on the reconciliation package.

While Democrats widely mocked McCarthy for extending the vote by a day, the speech paid off in a different way for McCarthy… boosting his fundraising.

McCarthy has always been a solid fundraiser, but this speech managed to open up yet even more wallets.

In just a few hours after the speech was given, more than $100,000 poured in.

Over the next several days, McCarthy rang the bell for more than $400,000.

The good news for McCarthy is that he saw national support from more than 18,000 donors.

The GOP has seen the wallets open up from Americans that are already tired of seeing Joe Biden take this country down a rabbit hole.

On November 8, the NRCC reportedly raised some $17 million during its annual fundraising dinner, a massive one-night haul by any measure.

McCarthy’s team has raised almost $58 million so far this year, which is another stunning amount.

NRCC Chair Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN) stated, “Kevin McCarthy has been our number one fundraiser, not just this cycle but last cycle.”

A senior GOP aide told Fox News, “Kevin McCarthy is doing all the right things to retake the House, including raising a record amount of money.

“Republicans are focused on winning big so there is no doubt who will take the gavel.

“It’s no secret that raising record amounts of money to take back the House is one of the surest ways to foster support among GOP members and candidates.”

McCarthy also took out an ad targeting Pelosi…

The question is if McCarthy has enough support in the House to get his hands on the gavel.

There are two different factions showing resistance which could present McCarthy with an unexpected challenge.

The anti-Trump movement in the party will surely give him resistance, but there is also now resistance from the likes of Rep. Taylor Greene (R-GA), who says McCarthy did not do enough to help his fellow House members when Pelosi went on the attack and stripped them of their committee assignments.

McCarthy still has a year to get everyone on the same page, but this is clearly something we need to keep our eyes on.

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
