House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) didn’t mince any words in his criticism of President Joe Biden and the Democrats in Congress. In his Monday speech, McCarthy gave his remarks just ahead of Biden’s State of the Union address.
“I speak to you as a father, a former small business owner, and a taxpayer. And like many of you, I worry about a future that feels less secure than it should,” McCarthy said. “A lot has changed in recent years. Our southern border was once secure. Now, the number of illegal immigrants who crossed our border in just two years easily exceeds the population of 25 states.”
The Speaker of the House said that people in America are getting “hammered” by high prices. He noted that nearly two-thirds of all the people in America are living paycheck to paycheck.
McCarthy also focused on the fact that China is “infiltrating” our culture and taking our farmland as well as our skies. He said that they are doing this because they think we are “weak.”
McCarthy does not believe this is sustainable.
But that is not all that McCarthy said, he then warned that all of these things “pale in comparison to the threat that the national debt poses to American’s future.”
Saying that America deserves the truth, he said the problem is not getting better, it is getting worse.
McCarthy said that we are now 31 trillion dollars in debt, that is more than the size of the whole American economy. He noted that our debt is greater than it has been at any time since World War 2.
The Speaker said that Democrats passed the largest debt limit increase in American history in 2021. He said they maxed out America’s credit card 13 months later. And now Biden wants to raise the debt limit again.
McCarthy wants Biden to quit playing games and address the problem at hand.
