House Freedom Caucus Members Consider Motion to Vacate the Chair to Express Disapproval of Budget Deal Struck by McCarthy and Biden

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is facing criticism from members of the House Freedom Caucus over a budget deal he struck with President Joe Biden. Members of the group are considering using a motion to vacate the chair, which would allow any member of Congress to force a vote to remove the speaker, as a way to pressure McCarthy to allow members to amend the bill. Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) said Tuesday that "there's going to be a reckoning" about the deal, and Bishop suggested the motion is inescapable.
