‘Squad’ Member Calls GOP ‘Godless’ On House Floor

Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts called Republicans “godless” for demanding spending cuts during a speech on the House floor Thursday.

“The Republicans continue to govern in a way that is clueless, callous and with great contempt, and I would say godless, because faith without works is dead,” said Pressley, a member of “The Squad,” a group of left-wing Democrats in the House of Representatives that includes Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Cori Bush of Missouri and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.

President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy talked Monday, but failed to reach an agreement on lifting the debt ceiling. Republicans, led by McCarthy, are insisting on spending cuts to accompany any increase in the limit to the national debt, which currently stands at $31.4 trillion, while Democrats have demanded a “clean” debt ceiling increase, with no spending cuts or other legislative items attached.

Democrats have condemned proposed spending cuts, with some of the more left-wing members like Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland calling on Biden to invoke the 14th Amendment to unilaterally lift the debt ceiling.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
