- Vote against House Resolution
On September 17, 2020, McCarthy voted against House Resolution 908 to criticize Asian-American racism related to the COVID-19 pandemic. He stated that the resolution was “a waste of time”, and “At the heart of this resolution is the absurd notion that referring to the virus as a Wuhan virus or the China virus is the same as contributing to violence against Asian Americans.”
- Capitol Riot
The Capitol attack on the United States took place on January 6 in 2021. McCarthy said that “as a nation”, “we all have some responsibility” for the event. McCarthy was one of the Republicans who had spread false claims about the validity of the presidential election in the weeks before the incident took place. On January 13, McCarthy said that Trump “bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding”. But McCarthy did not vote to impeach Trump for a second time, instead of calling for a censure resolution against Trump for his role in the attack.
On January 21, McCarthy said he did not think that Trump “provoked” the attack. Two days later, McCarthy said that Trump “had some responsibility when it came to the response”, and then stressed his original position that all Americans have “some responsibility”. Republicans condemned McCarthy for conflicting statements about Trump after the attack took place. Instead of being condemned McCarthy went to visit Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort to discuss the future of the Republican Party. McCarthy released a statement that said, “Today, President Trump committed to helping elect Republicans in the House and Senate in 2022”.
- Abortion Rights Bill
In 2003, McCarthy “supported most abortion rights, but opposed spending tax dollars on abortions”. According to The Washington Post, McCarthy was “a staunch anti-abortion-rights advocate” till 2015.
McCarthy supports the Hyde Amendment (a provision, annually renewed by Congress since 1976, that bans federal funds for abortion), to make the Hyde Amendment permanent he co-sponsored a bill, the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act”, in 2011. The bill had become a reason for controversy as it.
This bill was extremely questionable because it provided an exemption from funding terminations of pregnancies caused by only “forcible rape”. It provoked abortion-rights activists to name the bill as a redefinition of rape. McCarthy is also against a state law of California which needs health insurance plans “to treat abortion coverage and maternity coverage neutrally and provide both” because the law violates the Weldon Amendment and other federal laws. For the federal funding of planned parenthood, McCarthy voted to stripe about $500 million.
