House Democrats said Tuesday they do not plan to save Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) when a vote on ousting him from the top spot hits the floor later in the day.
Emerging from a closed-door meeting in the Capitol that lasted more than two hours, House Democrats said they will vote to oust McCarthy from the Speakership.

Gaetz says he has 8.
Interesting. The Dems double crossing their patsy. But McCarthy should have known they were snakes when he sided with them. We will see what they actually do.
And does Gaetz really have 8 like he says?
I don’t like seeing these problems among the Republican caucus.
However, McCarthy did break his word and it’s on the most important aspects of the budget process.
As a general matter though, having 8 votes control the house is not Sustainable.
I have my doubts.
I still think it's likely that the Democrats will deliver just enough votes to save CR McCarthy.
i just love seeing R’s make the D’s so happy. NOT. geesh.
Make Trump Speaker of the House
That would be the best move, but too bad he doesn't have the support of the Republican party.
Dems will regret this if the next speaker is someone way to the right of McCarthy like Chip Roy.
Yep, almost have to believe there are enough dems to support him
Of the nineteen Republicans who defeated a motion to ban drag shows and pride parades at military facilities, how many will vote for Jeffries?
He needs six.
Agreed. Talk about tyranny of the minority.
So now what do you do Conservative inc? You got what you wanted thanks to the Democrats!
Got he is still “their patsy”. Yet Conservative Inc is their ally?
How about your all stop screaming slogans and start thinking for a change?
The GOP will need to find an alternate, perhaps Jim Jordan
Yeah so for 3-4 week’s the country watches the GOP flail around trying to elect a new Speaker...who then come in and has to do pretty much the same thing the old Speaker did since Conservative Inc doesn’t control enough votes to pass anything on their own
The old speaker did nothing, so no loss.
At this point, does it matter who the Speaker is? Republicans as a Majority as Democrats and Democrats are Communists, so, once again does it matter who the Speaker is?
Pitiful, begging his fellow Swamp Dems for help.
