Rep. Matt Gaetz appeared on Lou Dobb’s to discuss removing Liz Cheney from her position as House Republican Conference Chair, Corporate PAC money, and the future of the Republican party.
McConnell, McCarthy, Cheney–they’re all smart people, right? They know when they attack the President that makes it harder for us to win elections. But to them, at times, that’s less important than the ability to …what they want to do is raise and direct corporate money…What runs Washington is Corporate PAC money. And there are too many people in Republican leadership right now who will do anything–who will sell out anyone, including former President Trump, if that means they will get back in the good graces of Corporate America who has gone total woke left.
I’m the only one in Congress that doesn’t take any PAC money,” Gaetz went on to say. “I cancelled them before they cancelled me.”
If Republican leaders are wiling to sell out anyone for money, that means the American people they claim to represent are for sale as well. But Americans are waking up to the scam and starting to hold their leaders accountable.
Gaetz and Dobb’s discussion comes just as Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) announced Monday that he will not be seeking re-election. Patriots nationwide, along with Buckeyes all over the state, celebrated this announcement. Some Ohioans took credit for Portman’s decision saying, “Portman was put on notice that he would be primaried in 2022 by the MAGA party because we OWN the Republican party now and he ain’t a part of it. He was told he would get no voter support by a plethora of emails and phone calls to his office since April, 2020.” Mark Pukita had already been ramping up his campaign to challenge Portman as a MAGA candidate.
Gaetz went on to urge all Americans to join the fight by calling their Congressmen and asking if they are supporting Representatives Matt Gaetz, Andy Biggs, Jim Jordon, and Matt Rosendale in their efforts to remove Liz Cheney from her position in the conference.
