On a recent broadcast, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia voiced her concerns about a potential government shutdown by Sunday. She expressed that while such a shutdown would be unfavorable, it presents an opportunity to tackle the challenges in the nation’s capital.
During her conversation with “Eric Bolling The Balance”, Greene revealed her reasons for opposing the last-minute continuing resolution presented on Friday. She stated, “It’s not just about the resolution itself; it’s about the bigger issue at hand.” She emphasized her alignment with Rep. Matt Gaetz’s views on rectifying the issues plaguing Washington. Her primary reason for voting against the resolution was the lack of support from both the Senate and the White House, even when the resolution advocated for robust border security.
Furthermore, Greene highlighted her exhaustion with the persistent dysfunctions in the legislative process. She criticized the practice of Congress taking breaks when there are pressing responsibilities, such as finalizing the 12 necessary appropriation bills by the end of September. She proposed that Congress should operate with the efficiency and effectiveness of a thriving business rather than a struggling entity on the brink of bankruptcy.
She also critiqued Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell from Kentucky, suggesting he has been overly supportive of President Joe Biden’s initiatives. She emphasized that for true progress, Washington, D.C., itself needs an overhaul. Greene concluded by urging both the Senate and the White House to collaborate with the GOP-led House to develop and implement effective solutions for the nation’s future.
