The House Freedom Caucus came out against Speaker Mike Johnson's plan to avert a government shutdown on Tuesday, which he must now pass with Democratic support.
"The House Freedom Caucus opposes the proposed ‘clean’ Continuing Resolution as it contains no spending reductions, no border security, and not a single meaningful win for the American People," the hardline conservatives said in a statement released Tuesday morning. "Republicans must stop negotiating against ourselves over fears of what the Senate may do with the promise ‘roll over today and we’ll fight tomorrow.'"
"While we remain committed to working with Speaker Johnson, we need bold change," the group added.
The Nov. 17 deadline to fund the government is Johnson's first major legislative test as speaker.
