The renowned Mark Levin and COSA President Mark Meckler discussed on Tuesday why Arizona Representative Andy Biggs' bid to become Speaker of the House is nothing but trouble.
While Rep. Kevin McCarthy may not be ideal to hold the most powerful position in the House, Biggs is far from a suitable replacement.
Before holding federal office, Biggs worked his way up to be the president of the Arizona Senate. As vividly remembered by both Levin and Meckler, Biggs was the sole roadblock that stopped the Convention of States Resolution from passing in Arizona.
"He would not bring the vote to the floor. He blocked it, one man. One man was blocking the entire state of Arizona from joining the other states and trying to get our Constitution back and trying to return Washington, DC from being a runaway constitutional convention. That individual is Andy Biggs," Levin detailed on his show.
Once Biggs departed state politics in pursuit of the D.C. arena, Arizona immediately passed the COS Resolution.
"Even if he opposed Convention of States, the idea that he would use his position as president of the Senate in Arizona to prevent all the other senators from voting ay or nay – that's abuse of power, is it not?" questioned Levin.
Both made it clear that while they're not overly fond of Kevin McCarthy, the greater threat is a Republican who is a fake constitutionalist. At the power of McCarthy, Rep. Jim Jordan will be the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, building a strong position for conservatives.
Biggs, on the other hand, would serve with questionable intentions. As Meckler put it, "he doesn't respect the Constitution. He only respects the parts that he likes."
"Andy Biggs is not going to be elected Speaker. At most he could get a handful of votes. This is a game he's playing. He's misleading the American public just like he did on Convention states," added Meckler.
Promoting the Convention of States movement, Levin said "the federal government is not going to reform itself. The federal government is not going to fix what it has done. And the Republicans in Washington aren't going to do it either."
