Senate GOP urges Johnson to stand up to ‘chaos caucus’

Senate Republicans are urging Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) to stand up to the “chaos caucus” in the House GOP and move forward with legislation providing funds to Ukraine and Israel.

GOP senators are encouraging Johnson to face down critics, such as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), who are threatening to oust him from the Speakership. They say House backbenchers shouldn’t dictate U.S. national security policy.

“He needs to count the votes, and I think there’s a substantial majority in the House who would vote in favor of the defense supplemental, and he needs to do the courageous and correct thing to stand by our ally,” Sen. Roger Wicker (Miss.), the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said of Johnson.

Or maybe he should grow a backbone.  Many in the GOP are tired of the capitulating and games passing bad legislation.

Both the democrats and republicans are a minority with the majority of voters being independent.  Time they got that through their heads and started compromising much more often.  They are not there to represent a party they are there to represent the USA.
