House Freedom Caucus Stalls House Proceedings in Protest of Speaker McCarthy’s Compromise with President Biden

Members of the House Freedom Caucus, a far-right faction of the House of Representatives, have stalled proceedings in the chamber in protest of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's compromise with President Joe Biden on “debt ceiling” legislation. The group, led by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), has blocked several bills backed by GOP leadership and has called for the House to “hold the floor” in protest. This disruption has put the GOP majority in a difficult situation, and it is unclear how long the group will continue to stall proceedings.
