According to the Washington Examiner, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has crafted a deal to keep the federal government from closing at the end of this month.

The resolution is said to last for 31 days and include all aspects of a border security bill that was approved earlier in the year, excluding an E-verify requirement.

According to reports, Texas Republican Representative Chip Roy was instrumental in the negotiation of the Continuing Resolution, and on Friday last week delivered a passionate address on the House floor where he threatened to withhold funding from the Biden Administration until they secure America’s southern border.

“A complete abandonment of the job and the responsibility of the federal government leaving the state of Texas $10 billion poorer while it tries to do the job the federal government is supposed to do,” Roy said.

South Dakota Rep Dusty Johnson and Florida Rep. Byron Donalds, both fellow Republicans, were instrumental in putting the deal together.

Johnson told the Examiner, “Congress needs to keep the government open and secure the border. These are issues that united the six negotiators and should unite the conference.”

In response to criticism from Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, Donalds tweeted, “Matt, tell the people the truth. The DOJ will operate regardless of whether the government is shut down or not.”

“Special Counsel’s have always exempted themselves from shutdowns. What’s your plan to get the votes to defund Jack Smith? You’ll need more than tweets and hot takes!!” Donalds declared.

The Examiner reported that apart from Gaetz, nine other Republicans have vowed not to vote for the resolution; they are Bishop of North Carolina, Mills of Florida, Rosendale of Montana, Burchett of Tennessee, Spartz of Indiana, Taylor Greene of Georgia, Crane of Arizona, Luna of Florida and Biggs.

While some, like Gaetz, expressed their disapproval of Special Counsel Jack Smith’s inquiry into former President Donald Trump, others we upset that it did not include enough budget reductions.
