GOP activists are seeking to strip the 13 House Republicans who voted for the bipartisan infrastructure bill of their committee assignments, a severe measure usually reserved for egregious ethical lapses.

Former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said on Tuesday: “They stripped Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committees for not even voting against the Republican Party. These people voted for Joe Biden, for an infrastructure bill that will clear the way for more socialist spending that, quite frankly, gives Joe Biden a win.”

The conservative magazine the National Review also denounced the 13 Republicans, stating in an editorial: “[Biden] headed into the 2022 election year a wounded animal, and Republicans stood to make major gains. Now, they tossed him a life raft and allowed him to put a bipartisan gloss on his radical agenda.”

Former Trump White House aide Mercedes Schlapp said on Fox Business: “I just find it to be disappointing coming from these 13 Republicans who have given a win to [Nancy] Pelosi and a win to Joe Biden.”
