Promises are a significant aspect of politics, but they are not always fulfilled. In the case of Kevin McCarthy, the Republican House Minority Leader, the question arises: Did he break his promise on term limits?
During his campaign for House Speaker in 2018, McCarthy pledged to bring a term limit vote to the House floor. However, it appears that this promise was not fulfilled, leading to accusations of backtracking and raising concerns about political accountability.
Critics argue that McCarthy’s failure to follow through on his promise erodes public trust and reinforces the perception that politicians prioritize their own interests over those of the people. For more information, Lars speaks with Scott Tillman, National Field Director for U.S. Term Limits.
