On Saturday, the White House reacted to House Speaker Mike Johnson’s new stopgap funding bill, calling it “extreme.”

From The Hill:

“This proposal is just a recipe for more Republican chaos and more shutdowns — full stop,” a statement from White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre read. “With just days left before an Extreme Republican Shutdown — and after shutting down Congress for three weeks after they ousted their own leader — House Republicans are wasting precious time with an unserious proposal that has been panned by members of both parties.”

“An Extreme Republican Shutdown would put critical national security and domestic priorities at risk, including by forcing service members to work without pay,” Jean-Pierre continued. “This comes just days after House Republicans were forced to pull two of their own extreme appropriations bills from the floor — further deepening their dysfunction.”

The bill, a “laddered” continuing resolution (CR), would result in some funding running out in mid-January and the rest running out in early February. It tries to dissuade negotiation on a whole-of-government omnibus funding bill and attempts to push for the two houses of Congress to negotiate on the 12 regular funding bills.

“This two-step continuing resolution is a necessary bill to place House Republicans in the best position to fight for conservative victories,” Johnson posted on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “The bill will stop the absurd holiday-season omnibus tradition of massive, loaded up spending bills introduced right before the Christmas recess.”

Speaker Johnson’s fellow House Republican, Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas), stated his opposition to the CR. “My opposition to the clean CR just announced by the Speaker to the @HouseGOP cannot be overstated. Funding Pelosi level spending & policies for 75 days – for future ‘promises,’” Roy posted to X.

After the House canceled votes on two party-line funding bills in a span of 48 hours before adjourning for a long weekend, Rep. Troy Nehls (R-Texas) said The “Lord Jesus himself” can’t govern the House Republican conference.
