Republicans went on the offensive during day three of Conservative Political Action Conference, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy asserting that the GOP would get the majority back in the House while Rep. Lauren declared that Democrats were the party of ‘no’ and Gov. Kristi Noem slammed Dr. Fauci as being wrong ‘a lot.’
Speaking with American Conservative Union Chair Matt Schlapp and Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), McCarthy claimed that there was ‘no chance’ of Democrats keeping control of the majority of the House next year.
‘We’re going to get the majority back. We’re five seats away,’ he said, according to Newsweek. ‘I would bet my house. My personal house. Don’t tell my wife, but I will bet it. This is the smallest majority the Democrats have had in 100 years.’

The Trump loyalist then turned to praising the former president as being responsible for helping the GOP gain seats in the House during the Nov. 2020 election.
‘You know why we won that? President Trump worked on all these races, let me give you a little secret and some facts, this is the first time since 1994 that no incumbent Republicans lost, we beat 15 Democrats,’ he said.
‘You know who the 15 Democrats lost to? Conservative women and conservative minorities. Each and every one of them.’
The California representative added: ‘Even when President Trump was sick with COVID. He called me this night in the hospital, he said, “Kevin I’ve gotta keep doing this.” Because we couldn’t do the rallies [so] he would do the rallies over the phone for each district and he’d have the candidate on and then he would talk. It would turn out the votes and that’s what shocked cause all the polls said we’d lose but on Election Day the voters said, “No there’s a new path,”‘ McCarthy added.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) declared that the GOP was dubbed the ‘Party of No’ simply from stopping the Democratic Party from taking their freedoms
Lambasting Democrats was high on the agenda as gun lover Rep. Lauren Boebert declared that the GOP was dubbed the ‘Party of No’ simply from stopping the Democratic Party from supposedly taking their freedoms.
‘The funny thing is that Republicans are called the party of no, but we are saying no to all of their [Democrats] nos,’ she said during an impassioned moment.
‘They don’t want you to be able to protect yourself, they don’t want you to have freedom of speech, they don’t want you to have freedom of religion, in Colorado they don’t want you to our public lands. They are the party of no.’
She asserted: ‘We are saying no, we are saying a big HELL NO to all of their nos.
South Dakota Goc. Kristi Noem turned her attention to chastising critics to her handling of the coronavirus. The governor has not issued any stay-at-home orders or made businesses close. More than 112,000 people have tested positive with the virus in the state and 1886 people have died.

‘We never focused on case numbers. Instead, we kept our eye on hospital capacity. Dr. Fauci told me that I would have 10,000 COVID patients in the hospital on our worst day,’ Noem said, the Argus Leader reports. ‘On our worst day, we had a little over 600. I don’t know if you agree but, Fauci is wrong a lot!’
Noem then turned her attention to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has been slammed over his handling of COVID-19 deaths in the state’s nursing homes. He signed a March order that allowed nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients back to their facilities.
Earlier this month, Melissa DeRosa, Cuomo’s secretary, unleashed a political firestorm when she admitted to state Democrats that the administration had deliberately hid data on the number of COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes.
‘That’s the media’s COVID hero. By the way, he also earned an Emmy and wrote a book on his COVID response. So, who really needed the advice?,’ Noem chided.
