Congressman Cloud Votes in Opposition of Kevin McCarthy for House Speaker

Washington, D.C.—Today, Congressman Michael Cloud (TX-27) issued the following statement regarding his vote in opposition to Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House of Representatives:

“Congress is broken. I have worked for months in high hopes and good faith that our conference would chart a course away from the status quo, put us on a path toward fiscal responsibility, and form a Congress in which the elected Representatives would truly be able to work on behalf of the American people. 

I have worked diligently with members of Congress, including Kevin McCarthy, to find agreement on key structural reforms and policy initiatives needed to put our country on the right path. Some progress was made, but ultimately many of the promises made lacked enforcement mechanisms necessary to ensure their implementation, casting doubt on the sincerity of reforms.”
