U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy was finally named speaker of the House after an unprecedented 15 rounds of votes, some major concessions and a near-violent outburst.

What does this ugly battle mean for the future of this honored political process, and what does it mean for the House rules package, which was changed significantly in order to get McCarthy the position?

One of the stipulations states that it will only take one member of Congress to initiate the process of removing McCarthy from his role as speaker.

Political historian Joanne Freeman and Jesse Mermell, founder and president of deWit Impact Group, shared their concerns on Greater Boston.

Freeman said the ultimate way to "twist" Congress is with the rules package. She noted those rules control how lawmakers interact on the floor, and we have seen those rules twisted or violated throughout history to support a political agenda.

"It would be hard to exaggerate the degree to which rules can be weapons in Congress if they're deployed the right way," she said.

Mermell said the House Speaker fight shows that Republicans are not driven by any core set of goals for the country, which is alarming for the future.

"They are driven by wanting to have power to make their friends in power richer and more powerful and I hope that American voters are seeing this for what it is," Mermell said.

Watch: House now has a speaker, but at what cost?
