House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy says President Barack Obama's "main goal" in his second term is to "break the Republican Party" with a progressive agenda that ignores the fact there are fewer Americans are working today than when he first took office.
"Normally when the president gets elected . . . it's the time that you build together, you find common ground and you work forward," the California Republican told Fox News's Sean Hannity on Tuesday.
"This person's main goal is to continue to try to break the Republican Party. He's out of touch [with] where America is at . . . It was more of a speech for a progressive party agenda, not something for all of America to get behind," McCarthy added, referring to Obama's Inauguration Day remarks.

The third-ranking House Republican said he expected to hear Obama talk more about uniting the country and working for the common good, especially with the looming debt and budget problems. He was disappointed.
"When an election is over, it's time to govern. What did he do?" McCarthy asked. "He moved his campaign committee over. So, he's keeping the campaign going when he can't even run for further office."
"This is what this individual does," the whip added. "He can't govern . . . What he continues to do is just politics."
