CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): The tape we are about to play for you with Speaker Johnson and a lot of the lawmakers saying well maybe we need a CR, any excuse they give, what's really the issue, is that they don't want to have to demand their members to work through Christmas. That their comfort, their trip back home, having a nice breath for Christmas, is far more important than the wellbeing, the vitality, or the longevity of the United State of America.
So you must understand that because they're going to saying there's a lot of different excuses. And here's where we are, Speaker Johnson, praise God that he is speaker of the House, biblical worldview, godly man, he is now caught up in a whirlwind of what it's like to actually run a Republican Congress in the midst of a uniparty swamp.
Speaker Johnson is saying, well, look, we might have to do just one more, just one more continuing resolution, we just got to do one more all the way through January 15th? Why is that? It's obvious he doesn't want to make people work through Christmas because he says, well, we need some breathing room. No. No breathing room. Work through Christmas.
You guys have destroyed this country through complacency and some intentional behavior. Work through Christmas. You get no Christmas break. The people that you are harming put you in DC not that you could have nice trips and enjoy the pleasantries of life and the luxuries of being a congressman.
Mike Johnson says look, we need some breathing room, no, no, no, no. No breathing room. Shut down the government. Twelve spending bills, stay in DC through Christmas, not a day off, that is what a serious country would do.
Here's Speaker Johnson saying that he favors a continuing resolution through January 15th. Now I'm not doing this to make you feel disappointed in Speaker Johnson, because, to be honest, I'm not disappointed, I told you guys he was going to let you down, and he is letting you down. A CR would be an absolute let down to every single one of you that thought things were going to change, this is business as usual.
