This was a smart move.
Recently on Fox’s “Bill Hemmer Reports,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) stated the he believes there is opportunity for police reform between Republicans and Democrats if Democrats can keep House Speaker Nancy Pelosi out of negotiations.
Accoridng to Breitbart, Bill Hemmer questioned, “Is there the opportunity here for a Lazarus moment as Sen. Scott just mentioned?”
McCarthy replied, “Yes, there is. I’ve been talking to Karen Bass as well. There’s a number of Republicans talking with Democrats. The real challenge was that the Democrats, the way they brought it to the floor, not allowing one amendment, from either side, so it’s hard to find compromise and a solution if you don’t allow the debate and the opportunity. So, now we’re having that, and it’s outside of the scope of Speaker Pelosi. So, there is a real chance that we can find common ground.”
Adding, “really an opportunity that we could find common ground with Karen Bass, Tim Scott, and others and make this happen.”
