U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Kevin McCarthy

You can watch the video of McCarthy further down this post.

As part of his acceptance speech, McCarthy stated:

“We pledge to cut the regulatory burden, lower energy costs for families, and create good-paying jobs for workers by unleashing reliable, abundant American-made energy. I know the night is late. But when we come back, our very first bill will repeal the funding for 87,000 new IRS agents. You see, we believe government should be to help you. Not go after you.” [emphasis added]
