“The people who were working to cut the deal, by the way, were not your conservative warriors in the Senate. And so they’re cutting a deal, but then Biden, who came out and said, ‘We have a deal,’ allowed Pelosi to basically kind of step in and go, ‘Whoop, no you don’t.’ You’re only gonna get that deal if you have reconciliation with all this liberal garbage,” he can be heard saying in the video.
He added: “And then Biden said, ‘OK, yeah.’ And they kind of backed away from the deal. Then he kind of came back away from the veto threat, so nobody knows what anybody’s gonna do right now. That’s the thing. This is the problem. I actually say, thank the Lord. Eighteen more months of chaos and the inability to get stuff done. That’s what we want.”
Roy’s office did not respond to multiple requests from CNN for comment, but he retweeted the video and did not deny it was him speaking.
The Texas Republican made the remarks at a June 29 Patriot Voices event, which was also attended by Republican Rep. Gary Palmer of Alabama, according to photos posted on Facebook.
