REP. MATT GAETZ (R-FL): You see, that's what Republicans are bad at. We're great at having the hearings and putting on the performances, but if you're still going to underwrite Biden's debt, which is what Kevin McCarthy did joining with Democrats on the debt limit deal, and if you're going to join up with Democrats to still fund this government, Merrick Garland will sit there and he'll answer my tough questions and he'll smirk at me or he'll obfuscate and then, guess what? He goes back to the Justice Department, and the coffers are full with money from the American taxpayer that gets turned against the brave patriots in this country. What about the January 6th tapes? Kevin promised he was going to release those, I'm still waiting.
MARIA BARTIROMO (FOX NEWS ANCHOR): Are you not right now indirectly working with Democrats? Because you are going to allow Chuck Schumer to come up with a continuing resolution next week to fund the government. That's what your actions are doing. That's why some people feel this is a personal vendetta you have against the Speaker.
GAETZ: No. My vendetta is against a Washington system that allows corruption to put the interests of lobbyists and PACs above the interests of the American people. Kevin McCarthy facilitates that system, and I do deeply resent that, but I'm not working with Chuck Schumer or any other Democrat. I am the one working with House conservatives —
BARTIROMO: You're enabling them.
GAETZ: — to require single-subject spending bills. No, no, no. You guys criticize me for forcing single-subject spending bills, then you give Kevin McCarthy the credit for doing it.
