- Fox Business News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday teed off her interview with Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz by saying in her opening monologue the GOP lawmaker was disrupting “the Republican wins” by standing against stopgap funding measures.
- “If you’re saying that I’m standing in the way of all the Republican wins, I’d love you to enumerate them,” Gaetz said.
- Gaetz also reject the notion he’s “indirectly working with Democrats” by blocking and stopgap funding measure in the GOP-led House, which is allowing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer one.
“My vendetta is against a Washington system that allows corruption to put the interests of lobbyists and PACs above the interests of the American people,” Gaetz responded to Bartiromo. “Kevin McCarthy facilitates that system, and I do deeply resent that, but I’m not working with Chuck Schumer or any other Democrat. I am the one working with House conservatives.”
