Kevin McCarthy should be Speaker

Republican California Rep. Kevin McCarthy has been trying to become the next House Speaker for three days, but he has lost 11 votes so far. A total of twenty Republicans have decided to abstain. As McCarthy’s candidacy for Speaker continues, he has come under fire from several members of Congress.
With the vote for speaker postponed, no one has yet been sworn in as a representative in the House, postponing the start of their term and any subsequent legislation. “Subtle, but I am beginning to suspect opinions differ on this matter … If not McCarthy, then seriously who?” Musk said in a follow-up tweet on Thursday.
A few hours after his original statements, Musk polled his followers on Twitter, asking them if he should “Stay out of politics” or “Keep shooting his foot.” After 595,182 votes were tallied, 57.2% of the population agreed with the statement “Keep shooting his feet.” In a tweet posted on Thursday night, he lamented, “Ouch my feet!!” while quoting the final vote results.
Billionaire Twitter CEO Elon Musk has weighed in on the drama surrounding the position of House Speaker. Early Thursday morning, Musk tweeted his support for Kevin McCarthy for Speaker of the House. Musk characterizes himself as “economically right of center, maybe.”
