Kevin McCarthy's recent election as Speaker of the 118th Congress was marked by drama and controversy, including confrontations and physical altercations on the House floor. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, a far-right politician known for promoting conspiracy theories and advocating for political violence against Democrats, was supported by McCarthy and is expected to receive new committee assignments in return for her support. This has caused concern on Wall Street and raises questions about the values and priorities of the Republican Party.
