Washington
House Majority Whip Were at a crossroads
WASHINGTON (3/3/11)--Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said the nation needs to unite for an all-out assault on the federal deficit. “We are at a crossroads,” he added, during a speech before credit unions at the Credit Union National Association's 2011 Governmental Affairs Conference. The crisis today is far different than the one posed by World War II, when all political parties pitched in to help win that conflict, he said. “Today we are divided,” he said. “When one party says one thing, the other says something else.” McCarthy, who is the House Republican Whip, said Congress needs to unite and reform the tax code. The current dependence on foreign entities such as China to finance debt is a hazardous course, he added. “Why should we put ourselves in that position?” he questioned. McCarthy said future elections will be crucial because the American public is eagerly searching for someone to tackle the current crisis.
