Republican House Rep Matt Gaetz wants Kevin McCarthy out as Speaker of the House due to his personal lack of confidence in his leadership. The recent drama that nearly caused a Government shutdown was spearheaded by Matt Gaetz, according to some Republicans. The spat between Gaetz and McCarthy has been going on for quite some time. Earlier in the year after Republicans gained control of the House, there was a battle over who would be the speaker. Toward the end of the multiple rounds of voting without resolution, Gaetz was one of the remaining holdouts who refused to confirm McCarthy. Ultimately, McCarthy became Speaker. And the Government spending bill did pass just recently, despite the protest maneuvering from Gaetz.
