Conservatives rebel against McCarthy on gas stoves bill over debt deal anger

June 07, 2023

Bishop suggested that an agreement to insist on federal spending at fiscal 2022 levels was violated by the debt deal, but it’s not clear that such a term was ever agreed upon. What is clear: Freedom Caucus voted against advancing two bills that would prohibit the Biden administration from regulating gas stoves. GOP leaders got no heads-up about their plan, according to some of the rebels, who also indicated it was a spontaneous maneuver. Later, after the failed vote, Clyde met with Scalise but remained tight-lipped about what was discussed or how the conference would move forward. It’s unclear whether GOP leaders’ outreach to conservatives will be enough to end the impasse.
