Progressives are staging a power-play to make the one-year expansion permanent, but some moderate Senate Democrats have raised concerns. If Republicans recapture a majority in either chamber of Congress, they could block Biden's agenda. Indeed, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell last week told reporters in his home state of Kentucky that is his goal. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has said he knows Republicans might decide to again sit on the sidelines and watch Democrats struggle to pass Biden's agenda on their own. For it to work, every one of the 50 Senate seats controlled by Democrats must vote together.

Sen. Jodi Ernst, an Iowa Republican, said some in her party "are trying to silence others." Her comments came as House Republicans seek to purge Rep. Liz Cheney from leadership. A Republican senator is speaking against "cancel culture" — not on the left, this time, but within her own party. "Cancel culture is cancel culture, no matter how you look at it," she said. "But I still think we shouldn't be trying to cancel voices," Ernst said.

But before all that, Ms. Stefanik was seen as an exemplar of the kinder, gentler future of the Republican Party. During Mr. Trump’s presidency, Ms. Stefanik voted with him 77.7 percent of the time, according to FiveThirtyEight, but Ms. Cheney did 92.9 percent of the time. One of Ms. Stefanik’s top priorities has been to improve her party’s image with women and, more specifically, to get more Republican women elected. To be fair, having sold their soul to Mr. Trump, Republican lawmakers cannot allow Ms. Cheney to remain in leadership. Every word out of her mouth is an indictment not merely of Mr. Trump but also of her fellow lawmakers’ degeneracy and opportunism.

McConnell Says ‘100%’ of His Focus Is on Blocking Biden Agenda

WASHINGTON—Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Republicans are united behind stopping President Biden’s agenda, putting a damper on already slim hopes for bipartisan cooperation in Congress ahead of more talks with the White House on a possible infrastructure deal. “One hundred percent of my focus is standing up to this administration,” the Kentucky Republican said at a press conference in his home state Wednesday, in response to questions about infighting among House Republicans. Proposals supported by Mr. Biden on gun laws, voting rights and D.C. statehood have also drawn little GOP interest. They passed the House but are unlikely to progress in the Senate, where most legislation needs 60 votes to advance. Vice President Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking vote gives Democrats a narrow majority in the chamber, which is split 50-50 between both parties.

Liz Cheney's top financial supporters are standing by her despite a move by House Republicans to remove her as conference chair. Cheney's reelection campaign raised just over $1.5 million in the first quarter of this year, Federal Election Commission records show. Spurgeon said that with these attacks from House Republican leaders, Cheney is on the path to acquiring new donors and igniting her base of supporters. Clearly, this is a problem for certain members of House Leadership," Spurgeon told CNBC in a LinkedIn message. The addition of new donors has been an apparent theme of Cheney's since she voted to impeach Trump.

House Republicans are plotting to replace Rep. Liz Cheney, Axios reported. Potential replacements include Reps. Elise Stefanik, Ann Wagner, and Jackie Walorski, Axios reported. House Republicans are lining up replacements for the GOP leadership spot held by Rep. Liz Cheney following her sustained criticism of former President Donald Trump, Axios reported. The House Republicans believe Cheney can't be succeeded by a white man and their could move against her as soon as May 12, when the Conference next meets, Axios reported. The schism between Cheney and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has also grown far more apparent since February, Insider's John L. Dorman reported.

Rep. Liz Cheney is in a familiar place: A whole bunch of her fellow Republicans are mad at her. Former VP Dick Cheney watches his daughter Liz Cheney take the oath of office after her election to the House of Representatives in 2017. A decade before she publicly dismissed QAnon and its adherents, Liz Cheney failed to condemn the racist and false "birther" conspiracy theory. But about a decade later, during the 2013 Senate primary, Liz Cheney showed she was willing to go against not only her party but also her family. So far, Liz Cheney appears to have emerged from the tangle with her own caucus intact and stronger.

“This is about whether the Republican Party is going to perpetuate lies about the 2020 election and attempt to whitewash what happened on Jan. 6,” said Jeremy Adler, the spokesman. “Every person of conscience draws a line beyond which they will not go: Liz Cheney refuses to lie,” Mr. Romney wrote on Twitter. “As one of my Republican Senate colleagues said to me following my impeachment vote: ‘I wouldn’t want to be a member of a group that punished someone for following their conscience.’”Many House Republicans insist they have no problem with Ms. Cheney’s vote to impeach Mr. Trump, which she described as a vote of conscience. It has also infuriated Mr. Trump. The final straw for many came last week in Orlando, where Republicans gathered for their annual policy retreat in hopes of putting on a show of unity.

Since the start of the pandemic, California has paid out billions of dollars in fraudulent unemployment payments. Congress should hold hearings on this nationwide problem before more taxpayer dollars are wasted. To deal with the fallout, Congress passed trillions of dollars in relief and funded a new program called Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA). That means that 1 out of every 4 taxpayer dollars that California handed out in unemployment assistance could have been fraudulent. This is a gross abuse of taxpayer dollars and speaks to a troubling trend popping up in states across the country.

WASHINGTON — House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy refused to say Tuesday whether Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming should be on the Republican leadership team, a renewed sign of internal strife that began during former President Donald Trump's impeachment. Cheney, who is the third highest-ranking Republican in the House, voted to impeach Trump earlier this year, prompting calls from some fellow Republicans that she be removed from her leadership post. Cheney has become one of Trump's loudest Republican critics and voted to impeach him for his role in the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the capitol. Speaking Tuesday at a retreat for House Republicans in Orlando, Florida, McCarthy suggested that Cheney's future on the leadership team remained uncertain. “That’s a question for the conference,” McCarthy said when asked if Cheney was a "good fit" for the leadership team.

I don't care what they wanted to know," Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah told FBI Director Christopher Wray, a lifelong Republican appointed by Trump. A day before the House session, Republican members of the Senate Intelligence Committee struck a much different tone at their own worldwide threats hearing. Because most House Republicans are elected in heavily Republican districts, Steel said, their main concerns are primary challenges. For decades, political arguments on Capitol Hill over national security and intelligence centered on philosophical differences — whether to use harsh interrogation techniques or whether to keep troops in Iraq. Now, a faction of the GOP appears to be arguing that some of the public servants working in national security agencies cannot be trusted.

Boehner slammed the effort by a group of House Republicans to create an "America First Caucus." On NBC's "Meet The Press," Boehner called the idea one of the "nuttiest" things he has witnessed. Former GOP House Speaker John Boehner on Sunday derided the plan that several House Republicans had to form an "America First Caucus," calling it one of the "nuttiest" things he has witnessed. "I can tell you that this so-called America First Caucus is one of the nuttiest things I've ever seen," he said. He added: "To see some members of Congress go off and start this America First Caucus is — it's the silliest thing I've ever seen.

House Republicans Who Voted to Impeach Trump See Fundraising Boost

As they prepare to face primary challengers, the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump after his supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 raised significantly more money during the first quarter of 2021 than they did two years earlier. The group, leveraging the power of incumbency, also swamped their GOP primary opponents in almost every instance during the first round of fundraising since angering Mr. Trump with their votes, new Federal Election Commission filings show. While all the incumbents outraised challengers who filed campaign finance reports, it is still early in the two-year election cycle and money is just one factor in typically low-turnout primaries. Mr. Trump’s political-action committees could also weigh in financially on some of the contests, and his endorsements could carry significant weight with the party’s base. In a speech earlier this year at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he called out all 10 by name, Mr. Trump told his supporters to “get rid of them all” in next year’s elections.

WASHINGTON—A group of House Republicans scrapped plans to establish a caucus highlighting respect for Anglo-Saxon political traditions after meeting widespread resistance, according to a House GOP aide. The effort, led by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R., Ga.), fizzled after sparking pushback from GOP leaders. The group hasn’t filed paperwork with the House Administration Committee to become an official caucus, a House GOP aide said. Many House GOP offices said they hadn’t seen the caucus document or been invited to join the caucus. Many House GOP aides and lawmakers criticized the language used in the group’s materials.

WASHINGTON — A group of ultraconservative House Republicans, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., are discussing launching an "America First Caucus" that would protect "Anglo-Saxon political traditions." "There is an America First Caucus," he said, confirming that Greene is involved. The formation of a caucus could be another sign of an emboldened faction of House Republicans who are known for nativist ideas and have been criticized by Democrats as racist. "Be on the look out for the release of the America First Caucus platform when it’s announced to the public very soon," he said. The development received immediate pushback Friday, including from Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., who encouraged people to ignore the caucus at risk of amplifying their message.

That is about 25% higher than the roughly $290,000 on average raised by re-election campaigns for 136 House Republicans who voted in support of Trump's false claims that his defeat was the result of widespread election fraud. Among prominent House Republicans who voted against Trump's claims, Wyoming's Liz Cheney raised $1.5 million, Illinois' Adam Kinzinger took in over $1 million and Washington state's Jamie Herrera Beutler raised more than $700,000. The figures show the effect of vows by some corporate-controlled donor groups not to support lawmakers who voted in support of Trump's false claim. Dozens of large U.S. companies vowed to halt donations to Republican lawmakers who voted to overturn the election loss. Republicans who voted to overturn Biden's win on average raised about $100,000 from large donors.

House Republican staff outline principles to reform tech's liability shield

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) during a House Energy and Commerce Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee hearing on Capitol Hill on April 2, 2019 in Washington, DC. House Republicans are gearing up to take aim at the legal shield that protects tech platforms from liability for the content users post. On Thursday, Republican staff for the House Energy and Commerce Committee sent a memo suggesting several concepts for reforming Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, a 1996 law that protects tech platforms from liability for users' posts and for their own moderation practices. Underscoring all of the concepts are three main principles: Protecting free speech, balancing interests of small businesses to protect competition, and promoting American leadership in tech. The E&C Republican staff sent the memo to the staff of individual Republican members of the committee, as well as other unspecified stakeholders.
