Never, Ever Ask Charlie McCarthy or Kevin McCarthy For A Straight Answer

He is one of the group of three, two-faced Congressmen, now laughably, called the "Young Guns". They included Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor (now ex-repsentative.) They were to be the next generation of the Republican Leadership, who were to bring fresh new ideas to the Congress. They ended up being the enforcers for the old generation of Republican elites and were the "Young Guns" who who could never speak straight. 
Eric Cantor was voted out at the primary level, even with millions of dollars backing him from the Republican Party machine, because he NEVER gave a straight, or even the same, answer on ANY subject. He was and still is a tool of the big banks and is a regular the meetings in Davos.
Paul Ryan, since becoming Speaker to replace the older, well tanned, two-faced (and sometime alcohol powered) John Boehner, has done little but be a rubber stamp to Obama, contrary to his re-elction commitments. He spent most 2016 playacting as Hamlet of the House, arguing with himself, in public on whether to support Trump or not support Trump, that was his poll-driven question.
That brings us to the third "Young Gun". He was all set to replace Boehner, when he opened his mouth to the general public for the first time on FOX News. He showed himself to be the dullard his is then and is still, as we see in the following article. m/r

McCarthy: No ‘Time Limit’ Set for Obamacare Repeal

By Nicholas Ballasy December 1, 2016

Kevin "Charlie" McCarthy
WASHINGTON – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) declined to set a time limit on repealing and replacing Obamacare but predicted that Republicans would ultimately be able to get it done.
“We will repeal Obamacare. It is the replacing of Obamacare that you want to make sure you get right. One thing I’ve always found – the argument was you need to change the healthcare system. Obamacare will not stand on its own. I mean, you look at, what was it, 23 co-ops when they passed Obamacare? What were they given? Three billion dollars. Now 16 of them failed. Premiums are up 25 percent,” McCarthy said during a discussion at a Washington Post “Daily 202” event.
“You go through all the ramifications – people leaving the market, a lot of states only have one option in there – we never thought that would succeed. But repealing, you want to make sure you replace it properly. This is the problem – they closed ranks and didn’t listen to anybody. They made it a political decision instead of a policy decision.”
