6. My theory:

Joe Biden's scrupulously gone through the Budget and found extraneous spending to the total number McCarthy demanded.

Let's say it was $2 Trillion. Biden showed McCarthy that he conceded and gave him the money.

The sticking point, IMO, is that McCarthy wanted certain programs decimated by depletion of funds and it was never about the money. IOW, Gaetz, Green, Comer, etc. will not give the votes unless these programs are fatally maimed.
