House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said if Democrats move forward with reconciliation, they are deaf to the expectations of Americans.

During an interview on Wednesday, McCarthy said Democrats’ recent losses have made it clear that Americans are tired of their multi-trillion dollar spending packages. This comes less than a week after Kamala Harris said what happens in Virginia will determine a lot of what happens in 2022 and 2024.

McCarthy added Terry McAuliffe’s loss in Virginia should be a wake-up call and predicted Democrats will continue to lose seats. Meanwhile, he and other House Republicans reflected on Glenn Youngkin’s victory in the Virginia gubernatorial race.

McCarthy pointed out how crime rates across the U.S. have risen in cities where Democrats have pushed to defund the police. He also noted how Youngkin is a great leader because he listens to Americans and urged the left to do the same and stop pushing failed policies.

McCarthy suggested Youngkin’s victory is a sign Republicans could flip more than 60 Democrat held seats in the lower chamber when it comes to the 2022 midterms.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) called the results of Virginia’s governor’s race “encouraging” and called out congressional Democrats for supporting “big government socialism.” In addition, Louisiana Congresswoman Julia Letlow (R) touched on the importance of education and putting students first.

GOP lawmakers closed the conference on Wednesday by saying Youngkin’s win is indicative of the issues that matter most to the American people.
