If they win back the majority of the House of Representatives, the GOP will be aiming to impeach President Joe Biden. It is a priority for many GOP members, after the failed Afghanistan withdrawal, which left 13 American soldiers dead, the southern border crisis, and the overseas business dealings of Hunter Biden. Joe Biden was vice president.
The Senate impeached Donald Trump twice and it failed to pass. This will happen again in Biden’s case unless the GOP pushes hard for the Senate majority.
Virginia Rep. Bob Good explained why Biden should be impeached:
“I have repeatedly said that President Biden should be impeached because he intentionally opened our border and made Americans less secure… Congress has a responsibility to hold the President responsible for this and other violations of his Constitutional responsibilities. A new Republican majority must be ready to conduct aggressive oversight from day one.”
At least eight resolutions have been proposed to impeach Biden since he took office. Three were related to his handling of the southern border crisis, three to Afghanistan, three to denouncing the eviction moratorium, and one to Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) said:
Garland and Mayorkas have deliberately made our country less secure, politicized their department, and violated the rule of law. They have in some cases instructed their subordinates not to obey our laws. This is unacceptable. Next January, I expect the House will pursue my impeachment article against Mayorkas and Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s impeachment article against Attorney General Merrick Garland that I co-sponsored.
Not just Biden.
We’ll be coming for Mayorkas and Garland too. https://t.co/nt2nPYuvYZ

Rep. Mary Miller won an Illinois primary recently and believes that Biden should be removed as a candidate for the office.
“Biden & Harris have failed to fulfill their most fundamental duty which is to ensure the safety of American citizens through the security of our borders.”
This could motivate the GOP base. The GOP must challenge the Democrats’ narratives. The GOP will take back the House and hold Biden responsible. However, the Biden administration won’t be able to pass their trillion-dollar agendas unless it negotiates with House GOP members.
If the House GOP is reelected, legislation could be passed that both sides can agree on for the first time in a while. It could be like the days when Bill Clinton was president and Newt Gingrich, the speaker of the House, worked together to pass legislation and balance the budgets.
First, the GOP must vote. This is the only way Republicans can win back the majority.
