That’s an interesting take, but one that I believe removes responsibility from an institution that has damaged itself all by years of out-of-control spending and no government accountability.
The problems in the U.S. House of Representatives did not start with Matt Gaetz and the 7 who voted with him to remove Kevin McCarthy as Speaker. The U.S. House of Representatives’ failures have been years in the making.
