Arizona’s Andy Biggs will become the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, taking over for North Carolina’s Mark Meadows.
Biggs was elected by caucus members to succeed Meadows in a Tuesday meeting.
The House Freedom Caucus is a conservative congressional group known for a willingness to challenge the Republican establishment, creating thorns in the side of Paul Ryan and John Boehner alike. Most in the caucus are strong supporters of President Trump.
Since arriving in the House of Representatives in 2017 to represent Arizona’s Fifth congressional district, Biggs has made a name for himself as a liberty-inclined conservative willing to take controversial stands that at times leave him alone in the broader Republican caucus.
Biggs won a heated primary election for nomination in the deep-red Mesa district, taking over for retiring Republican Matt Salmon.
He was one of a handful of Republican legislators to vote against a measure expressing unconditional support for America’s role in the costly NATO(North Atlantic Treaty Organization) international treaty.
Outgoing caucus Chairman Mark Meadows expressed his support for Biggs in a statement after his election. “I’ve been honored and humbled to serve as chairman of the Freedom Caucus for the last two and a half years, and I can’t think of a better person to pass the torch to than Andy Biggs.”
Congressman Biggs also emphasized his readiness to take on a challenging and contentious congressional position, in an era where radical Democrats are hungry to use their majority in the chamber for pointless impeachment proceedings and other wide-ranging investigations hoping to nail Trump and Republicans for supposed wrongdoing.
“I’m grateful for the trust of my colleagues in selecting me to serve as the next chairman of the House Freedom Caucus. The Freedom Caucus has revolutionized Capitol Hill because our members endeavor to keep our promises to the American people.”
Congressional Republicans are limited in what they can accomplish in the House Majority, but it’s unlikely Biggs plans to provide empty, token opposition to Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats. It’s unclear if Republican Caucus leaders plan on having his back.
Democrats Ready Lobbying Push to End Senate Filibuster In the Event of Biden Victory
They hope to dominate the opposition.
D.C. Democrats are preparing a lobbying effort to erase the traditional filibuster rule in the United States Senate, which requires 60 votes for the passage of most new legislation.
Eli Zupnick, a former top aide to Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, will lead Fix Our Senate, a group that will demand the Senate alter its rules to jam through a progressive policy agenda.
“Our goal is to lift the filibuster higher on progressives’ agendas … [and] make it clear to a future President Biden and Senate leadership that they expect and demand speedy Senate rules reform in 2021 and will not accept more gridlock, delays, and excuses,” Zupnick told NBC.
Senator Chris Coons of Connecticut had earlier warned that he would not ‘accept’ no for an answer when it comes to the implementation of a Biden administration agenda. Many Democrats are still upset that the then-Republican Senate minority blocked much of President Obama’s policy wish list during his administration.
“I will not stand idly by for four years and watch the Biden administration’s initiatives blocked at every turn,” said the neoliberal Democrat, who frequently fashions himself as a moderate. Coons is reportedly playing a role in preparing the push to end the Senate filibuster. Joe Biden himself has been reluctant to sign off on such a proposal, claiming he wants to wait and see how he would potentially work with Senate Republicans as President.
Democrats hope to force through a boatload of progressive policies, including federal gun control(with the possibility of confiscation), unlimited abortion, new taxes on middle-class Americans, globalist free trade deals, and massive increases in legal immigration.
The demand that major legislation be passed with merely 50 votes will quickly disappear in the event that Democrats fail to secure a Senate majority in November.
