GOP Unveils GENIUS-Level Plan For America
(UnitedCause.com) – On September 23, 2022, Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced the Republican Party’s midterm election plan in Pennsylvania while confronting the Democrats. McCarthy, flanked by Republican members of Congress, addressed an ecstatic crowd at a manufacturing company in Monongahela, Pennsylvania, claiming that his party understands what Americans want.
House GOP’s Legislative Plan
McCarthy, who is likely to become the Speaker if Republicans regain control of the House in the fall, aims to replicate former Speaker Newt Gingrich’s strategy that he used to generate voter excitement and capture control of the House in 1994. “I want to regain the majority, so we can have a new strategy and execute it,” McCarthy told CBS News congressional reporter Nikole Killion, deflecting a question in his political future.
The Republican’s “Commitment to America” plan consists of four pillars centered in the economy, security, individual liberty, and government responsibility. The plan is consistent with the practice established in 1994 by Rep. Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with America,” in which the minority party reveals its plan before Election Day.
House GOP’s Commitment to America Agenda
Much of the Republican’s legislative roadmap comes from classic conservative doctrines, such as support for tax cuts and less government expenditure. However, the plan also addresses some contentious cultural topics. Republicans, for example, commit to supporting legislation to guarantee that only women may participate in women’s sports, which would prohibit trans people from participating in women’s sports teams.
House GOP pledges to reduce crime and protect public safety, alleging the Democrat’s “Defund the Police” efforts have increased crime. The Republicans broadly promise to limit abortion access to protect unborn infants and mothers. The plan pledges to “protect” the Second Amendment and opposes gun control measures.
A divided government will stymie House Republicans’ legislative goals; regardless of what happens with Senate power, President Biden is unlikely to embrace much of a partisan GOP agenda. However, the majority would give Republicans oversight and investigation jurisdiction over the administration they intend to employ.
