In happier days for the Florida Republican Party in 2021, here's Congressman Vern Buchanan raising $750,000 for House Republicans as Kevin McCarthy looks on:
Here's a January 17, 2023 Florida Politics article about the piquant public squeal from this same sibilant sixth-wealthiest Congressman -- Florida U.S. Representative Vernon Gale Buchanan to Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy: "'You f***ed me’"
Who knew that the floor of our U.S. House of Representatives was so lively?
Sound like a lover's quarrel between two corpulent corporate cat's paws?
You tell me.
Malleable Donald John Trump toady Kevin Owen McCarthy was elected as Speaker of the House on the fifteenth vote in the middle of the night after five days and fifteen (15) votes.
Does Vernon Gale Buchanan have a grievance against Kevin McCarthy? If so, Congressman Buchanan's got rotten luck, because House Republicans just voted to gut the Ethics Committee. The FBI may wish to hear his complaint about McCarthy not delivering the House Ways and Means Committee job, which Buchanan raised so much money to get.
Is Vernon Gale Buchanan just another bumptious rich Dull Republican businessman, who expects to get his way with our government?
Buchanan reportedly is worth some $157.2 million and received $2.3 million in forgiven PPP loans.
Is the 2023 Republican Party an angry authoritarian, pugilistic party that emotes, but doesn't govern, a circular firing squad divided by greed and hate?
You tell me.
