( – Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., argued that it would not be any different if the House Speaker was Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La., or Minority Leader Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., considering how the GOP has failed to block the efforts of the Democrats.

On Tuesday, April 30, Boebert told CNN that every day they are in Congress, they are “passing the Democratic agenda.” She added that the Republicans only have a small majority in the House and that all of the legislation that’s being passed has a lot of support from the Left. She went on to say that as far as she is concerned, it doesn’t matter whether Johnson or Jeffries is in control.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., has been threatening Speaker Johnson with a motion to vacate for the last few weeks if he was unsuccessful in implementing a conservative agenda. On Wednesday, Greene told reporters that next week, she is going to push for a vote on the motion to vacate, which she originally filed back in March.

According to Greene, they funded the “uniparty agenda” and the “status quo” that DC wants to continue. She added that the reason she had voted for Johnson was because of his voting record prior to becoming the House Speaker, which she described as conservative.

Greene said that if the vote fails and Congress ends up backing the “uniparty,” it will be a victory for American citizens because it gives them a list of names, which in her view, they deserve to have.
