    Well, she didn't say anything untrue there. Biden won and is the president. But the Freedom Caucus were not "destructionist" - they used leverage to get some reforms into the process, which is a GOOD thing. Although I don't think it was because of Gaetz or Boebert but rather lead by Chip Roy. MTG seems like she had some deal worked out with McCarthy. Massie was on board too for whatever reason but they definitely could've pushed for more.

    It's worth thanking Chip Roy for working out most of the reforms. He is the one who seems most serious about actually trying to make Congress work better, who also happens to have the intellectual capacity to do so. He's no Amash but might be the closest we've got to carrying his torch in that regard.

    IMO the figurehead doesn't matter much as long as the negotiations improve things. So while McCarthy is no bueno, the other options could be even worse particularly if it involves some deal with Democrats. Amash definitely has the right idea with how things need to change but he's the voice in the wilderness, so let's hope that at least these concessions turn things in the right direction. Eyepatch McCain has to hate losing $75 B in defense spending... I'll believe there's a reason why Massie and even MTG started with McCarthy and that is because they fear the worse alternative.

    He won't make it this time but getting close. Maybe by the end of the day. Part of the deal involves $75 billion of defense cuts, so it doesn't seem too bad.
