Freedom Caucus Chairman Good Takes Shot at Speaker Johnson: ‘Don’t Assume You Have Our Votes’

by Charlotte Hazard


House Freedom Caucus Chairman Bob Good is sending a warning to Speaker Mike Johnson on spending bills.

“Don’t assume you have our votes for the things that don’t matter, when you don’t want ‘em for things that do matter,” the Virginia Republican said on Friday, according to The Hill.

The remark came shortly after the House passed a continuing resolution on Thursday to extend current federal funding levels and avoid a government shutdown.

Johnson decided to put the Democratic Senate’s short-term continuing resolution on the House floor for a vote despite harsh criticism from House Republicans about his strategy, and it passed with more votes from Democrats than Republicans.

President Joe Biden signed the bill, meaning the government will stay open at least through early March.

Good was very critical of the continuing resolution for not including border security measures.

“We had the opportunity to attach border security to the CR. It is what a majority of people want, and yet we voted yesterday to give billions of dollars to Secretary Mayorkas to continue the Biden border invasion policies,” he wrote on X.

Other House Freedom Caucus members have been very outspoken about continuing resolutions altogether.

“Enough with the continuing resolutions,” Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Az., wrote on social media. “We’ve had plenty of time to address funding levels. Congress keeps punting this while our southern border remains a mess and our national debt continues to surge.”
