Biden Urges Republican-led House to Get Its Act Together over Leadership

The GOP can't decide on a House Speaker

Today, President Joe Biden called on lawmakers in the Republican-led House of Representatives to "get their act together," saying the messy battle to determine the chamber's leader reflects poorly on the United States.

The fight over who will lead the House after Republicans gained a majority in November's midterm elections entered its second day on Wednesday after the expected frontrunner Kevin McCarthy weathered three failed votes the day prior. Hardline members of his party oppose McCarthy's candidacy to succeed Democrat Nancy Pelosi as speaker.

"This is not a good look," Biden, a Democrat, said in remarks to reporters at the White House. "It's not a good thing. This is the United States of America, and I hope they get their act together."
