MTG: ‘Betrayal of All of Our Values’

( – Arguing that the existing administration’s goals are a “betrayal of all of our values” and grab money to squander it on senseless programs, United States Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, often referred to as MTG, slammed Joe Biden’s approval of a $1.2 trillion funding package to ensure the government stays operational.

Biden said in a recent statement, “The bipartisan funding bill I just signed keeps the government open, invests in the American people, and strengthens our economy and national security. This agreement represents a compromise, which means neither side got everything it wanted.”

“But I want to be clear: Congress’s work isn’t finished. The House must pass the bipartisan national security supplemental to advance our national security interests,” he added.

Biden also expressed that Congress must pass the bipartisan border security agreement which he considered the toughest and fairest change in years, to guarantee the White House has the policies and money needed to secure the border.

After an extensive delay and much negotiation, the Senate passed the bill early Saturday morning by a vote of 74-24 vote.

The bill prevents a partial government shutdown, which technically went into effect after the chamber missed a midnight deadline to push through the funding package.

“It’s been a very long and difficult day, but we have just reached an agreement to complete the job of funding the government, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said from the Senate floor after the vote.

He continued, “It is good for the country that we have reached this bipartisan deal. It wasn’t easy, but tonight our persistence has been worth it.”

The funding bill encountered more hurdles in the House of Representatives. While Speaker Mike Johnson secured its passage with a wide bipartisan majority of 286-134, the conservative House Freedom Caucus criticized the bill at a news conference as “capitulation,” “surrender,” and “chock full of crap.”

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) labeled the spending bill “a complete betrayal of all of our values” and initiated a motion to vacate the resolution against Johnson.

This procedural move, which ejected former Speaker Kevin McCarthy, could potentially plunge the chamber into another leadership crisis.

With Representative Mike Gallagher’s (R-Wisc.) imminent retirement this week, Republicans will hold the reins of the chamber by just a single vote.
