It’s no surprise that dozens of freshman Republican lawmakers snubbed an invitation to the White House to visit with President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Tuesday night.
With Biden’s radical leftist agenda and his administration’s blatant disregard for the Constitution, it’s no wonder that so many Republicans chose to not attend the so-called “welcome party.”
Just 11 of the 45 new Republicans elected to Congress in November accepted Biden’s invitation. Among the dozens who rejected the invite were Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., as well as several Republicans who initially sought to block Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s speakership bid in early January. These lawmakers are a testament to the fact that Republicans will not be swayed by the Democrats’ empty promises and rhetoric.
The slim showing of freshman Republicans at the party is a clear indication of the lack of support for Biden’s agenda and his prospects of getting his priorities passed through the House. The Democrats’ liberal policies and disregard for the will of the American people will not go unchallenged.
It’s also worth noting that the bipartisan party comes as Biden is soon expected to announce his candidacy for the 2024 presidential race.
He is also facing more scrutiny than ever amid a special counsel investigation into his alleged mishandling of classified documents. House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., is leading the charge for Republicans looking into the matter, seeking testimony and documents from the Justice Department and the National Archives.
The Democrats’ conduct is unacceptable, and the Republicans’ refusal to attend the White House party is a clear sign that they will not back down in the face of this administration’s corruption and disregard for the Constitution. It’s time for the Democrats to be held accountable for their actions and for the will of the American people to be upheld.
