McCarthy accuses AOC, Tim Ryan of ‘heckling,’ ‘trying to shut me down’ during marathon House speech

During an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” McCarthy told anchor Maria Bartiromo that he was appalled by the amount of heckling that Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, would try to do in an attempt to stop him from being able to speak.

McCarthy’s eight-hour speech, which started Thursday night and ended before dawn the next day, delayed a vote on the $ 1.9 trillion Build Back Better Act, which eventually passed the House Friday morning.
