GOP Rep. Patrick McHenry takes on 'Auntie Maxine' in Congress

WASHINGTON – Rep. Patrick McHenry has been representing western North Carolina in the U.S. House since he was 29 years old.

The 10th District Republican, now 43, has long been considered a rising star among House GOP lawmakers. He’s worked in leadership as Republicans’ chief deputy whip, and he’s often labeled as an aspiring Speaker of the House. He’s got a lifetime rating of 93 percent from the American Conservative Union.

Now, he’s got a new platform: adversary-in-chief to House Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters.

McHenry is the ranking member on the powerful financial services panel, a coveted committee with jurisdiction over housing, banking, insurance and real estate.

1. Oh, good luck with that!

Guess who I'm betting on! She's experienced, fearless and takes won't take anything from anyone! I wish we had 100 more just like her!

2. I know who I'm putting my money on in that skirmish.

Just another GOP dirtbag that is going to get his ass kicked. I wonder if Chairwoman Waters will be delegating the actual physical ass-kicking to Skittles?

3. LOL! I don't think she'll need any help!

And she's 80! But she's just as tough and forthcoming as she ever was! I'd bet on her against anyone - and we know that she won't take any guff from Trump!
