The inability of the Republicans in the House of Representatives to elect a Speaker is not only making their party look bad, it also could cause instability in the government and present national security risks. The Speaker plays a critical role in managing and organizing the legislative process, and without one, the House may struggle to conduct business and pass legislation. The longer the impasse continues, the more the American people's confidence in the government is likely to decline and the higher the chances are that something could happen that would require the involvement of the House, which may be chaotically scrambling to respond. The existence of such a risk may put pressure on Democrats to allow a pathway for McCarthy to get enough votes to win the position. But it’s not the responsibility of Dems to come to the rescue on this just because the Republican Party can’t get its act together.
