GOP eyes booting Democrats from seats if House flips [View all]

Multiple House Democrats who are frequent top targets of the far right face the prospect of losing their committee assignments if Republicans win back the chamber next year.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has threatened to retaliate after Democrats stripped GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.) of committee seats this Congress, warning that some liberal lawmakers "will need the approval of a majority to keep those positions in the future."

None of the Democrats singled out by McCarthy as examples of who could be removed from House committees have embraced conspiracy theories or promoted violence against their political opponents the way Greene and Gosar have.

But that's not stopping Republicans from warning of a scorched-earth environment if they win back the House, as many poll watchers expect.



Democratic voters need to have the importance of voting in this mid term hammered home hard.

Spend some money on some messaging, for the love of democracy.
