Another court loss for Austin power insiders on Speaker races | U.S. House speaker race comment – Pratt on Texas 1/4/2023

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: Austin’s insider Capitol power crowd loses in court, again, over efforts to keep the people out of Speaker of the House races. The entire effort to keep The People out of House leadership races is immoral and unethical in my book.

In U.S. House speaker race news, don’t buy the premise that “chaos” exists or that those who don’t support McCarthy for the job are doing some terrible thing to the GOP or the country. This is what real change often looks like, it’s messy and uncertain and that’s why so many don’t have the fortitude to seek real change – they just can’t handle the challenges that come with such. Plus it is an advantage to have the House unable to conduct business for a while, it stops even more inflation causing spending.

And, when people like James Carville, who hates the Republican Party, warn that the GOP is hurting itself you can bet something else is happening people like Carville don’t like.
