Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has made headlines since becoming a member of Congress. Many critics of Greene have taken the liberty of digging up past statements of the GOP representative to criticize her. Others believe that Greene and other congressional Republicans played a role in inciting the riots that overtook Capitol Hill on January 6.

Greene, as a representative of Georgia’s 14th district, is one of the more outspoken House Republicans; however, this is why Greene’s constituents like her and voted for her. Nevertheless, Democrats don’t like the Georgia Republican very much and they made that known yesterday.
Breitbart News confirms that House Democrats — along with 11 House Republicans — voted in favor of a measure to remove Greene from her House committee assignments.

What to Know About the House Vote Against Greene

All in all, 230 House members voted in support of H. Res. 72 to remove Greene from her committee duties, while 199 House members voted against it. Most Republicans supported the Georgia representative; however, the ones who chose to vote against her with the Democrats (such as Rep. Adam Kinzinger and others) have also levied criticism against Greene.



House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy met with Greene days ago. Later, he spoke with reporters and noted that the Republican understands that her rhetoric as a congressmember carries “greater meaning.” Prior to the House vote, Greene actually apologized for the controversial and questionable statements she’s made in the past.

Another Display of Cancel Culture

Many of Greene’s supporters, voters, and constituents spoke out against the congresswoman losing her House committee assignments. Some Georgia conservatives described the vote as another form of cancel culture; others warned that Democrats should remember their treatment of Greene once their own party becomes the House minority.


One of the biggest goals for the GOP, at this time, is to take back the House during the 2022 midterms. Regaining control of the House of Representatives will place Republicans in a much stronger position than they’re in now. It will also force Democrats to work with their GOP colleagues, rather than openly boasting about how they can pass policy without any Republican votes.
