GOP Rep. Nancy Mace (SC-1) joined the left-wing press to trash-talk conservatives over the weekend, after establishment leader Kevin McCarthy was elected speaker by making major concessions to conservative members of Congress, including a promise to ditch Nancy Pelosi’s House rules – a set of rules that Mace has repeatedly supported.
During her interview with Face the Nation on CBS, GOP’er Nancy Mace admitted that the rules package negotiated by the Freedom Caucus Reps. who blocked McCarthy’s speakership through 14 rounds of voting is “the most open, fair, and fiscally conservative package we’ve had in 30 years,” before saying that she might vote against it anyways, seemingly, for personal reasons.
“I am considering that as an option right now,” Mace told CBS anchor Margaret Brennan, when asked if she’d “withhold” her vote on the conservative rules package when it comes up for a vote on Monday, January 9th.
The new House rules upend those installed by ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which consolidated power in the hands of the Speaker of the House and associated party bosses while tossing out more than two centuries of American parliamentary procedures.
Perhaps most importantly, the new rules package brings about the return of the motion to vacate the chair, a Jeffersonian aspect of America’s Congress that allows a member to file for a vote of no confidence in a lousy speaker, and begin the removal process.
The new rules package also allows for a select committee to investigate COVID-19 and its bioweapon origins.

Parroting Democrat talking points, Mace accused conservative Representatives of negotiating the rules package to their own ends, ironically comparing them to Nancy Pelosi, despite her own support of Nancy Pelosi’s left-wing House rules.

During the same Face the Nation interview, Mace blasted the conservative House Freedom Caucus and expressed her opposition to members of the caucus being named to committee assignments. She then went on to attack conservative Rep. Matt Gaetz as a “fraud” for opposing Kevin McCarthy, before throwing her support behind abortion and Obamacare-style taxpayer-funded birth control programs.
“What you saw last week was a constitutional process diminished,” Mace said of the live look at representative democracy in action that America received during last week’s speakership vote.
Did Nancy Mace just call Matt Gaetz a “fraud” for leading a group of courageous Patriots to drastically change a corrupt House for the better?

Rep. Nancy Mace’s opposition to the conservative rules package which, by her own televised admission, appears to be based on her dislike of conservative Rep. Matt Gaetz and the House Freedom Caucus, is just this week’s continuance of her support last week for Nancy Pelosi’s left-wing House rules.
National File caught up with Rep. Mace in between speakership votes on Wednesday, January 4th. At that time, Mace also attacked Rep. Gaetz, claiming that he wanted Democrat Hakeem Jeffries to be the next Speaker of the House. She also called a National File reporter an “asshole,” for asking questions of a public servant.

Throughout the 2022 midterms, Rep. Nancy Mace was funded by Kevin McCarthy and his CLF political machine, which took in millions of dollars worth of campaign cash from the corrupt FTX crypto exchange that also bankrolled left-wing Democrats.
Conservatives have been on alert since the conclusion of the speakership vote, considering the possibility that Kevin McCarthy could renege on his agreement to get rid of Nancy Pelosi’s House rules while using GOP’ers like Nancy Mace to block the new, conservative rules package.
