Time For The President To Lead The Country, Not Democratic Party

Statement

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) gave the following remarks at today's House Republican Leadership Press Conference:

"The fundamental question the President has to decide is does he want to be President of a political party or does he want to be President of the United States."

"As many of you, we have heard about this argument for quite some time. Let's put this into perspective, this idea came from the White House. When the House passed a bill twice what did the President do? He threatened to veto if we did something different with sequestration. Now as the time looms the President does exactly what he continues to do -- a road show. The fundamental question the President has to decide is does he want to be President of a political party or does he want to be President of the United States. It is time for leadership. It is time for him to engage and come down one mile and deal with the Senate if he really wants to lead."
