Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said over the weekend that Republican members of the House of Representatives should do what they promised to do when they campaigned and not worry about what the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate might be willing to accept.

DeSantis made the remarks during a Fox News interview on Sunday with Howard Kurtz on “Media Buzz.”

“Well, here’s what I would just recommend they do. They campaigned on certain things. Our voters did give them the House — not by big majorities, but they give it to them,” he said. “So just do what you say you’re going to do. The Senate can do what they’re going to do. I understand that there’s to be negotiations after that. But what I don’t think they should do is say, ‘oh, well, you know, the Senate won’t accept what we’re going to do, so we’re not going to do what we believe in.'”

“Do what you believe in because the country is going insolvent, and they’ve got to show a better way,” he continued. “And even if they don’t ultimately succeed on everything, at least they put the flag in the ground and showed, after 2024, if we have unified Republican control, we have a path to get this nation back to fiscal sanity. And part of it is the dollars and cents, but the debt — I mean, you’ve covered it, how much the debt has gone up just in the last five or six years. And it is under both parties, 100%.”

DeSantis later signaled that he did support the House’s impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, saying: “The corruption is really, really troubling when you have that many millions of dollars flowing into his family’s coffers.”

“They are totally within their right to do it,” he continued. “I mean, look, we could sit here and talk about the proper role of the impeachment, but they opened this on Trump based on a phone call to Ukraine. There’s way more evidence for this one, and they’ve got a lot of investigatory work to do, but I think they should pursue it.”
