Hard-line Republicans in the House are eager to fight President Biden and Democrats, even if it means risking a government shutdown.
These Republicans are pushing for an impeachment inquiry into Biden and deep spending cuts. They are also willing to withhold funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
Some Republicans are concerned that these moves could backfire politically, but the hard-liners are undeterred. They believe that they are using the power they were given to force change.
Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is facing a challenge in uniting his conference. He needs to balance the demands of the hard-liners with the concerns of the more moderate Republicans.
It is unclear how McCarthy will navigate this challenge. However, the outcome could have a significant impact on the future of the Republican Party.
