But that rules package — which also includes separate investigations into the Covid pandemic, its origins, funding gain of function research of novel coronaviruses in China, including at the Wuhan virology lab, and the policies to enforce broad economic lock-downs, vaccines, and other mandates that infringed on the civil liberties of the American people and another panel on the China tech threat — when it was passed the package was the first and most crucial test as Speaker.
To secure McCarthy’s position as Speaker, he had to promise 20 holdouts a broad range of concessions that allowed members to offer more legislation amendments or allow a single member in the majority to motion to vacate the chair. More conservative members are being allowed onto the crucial House Rules Committee to give every member a chance to get up or down votes on crucial issues.
