McCarthy’s ‘Commitment to American’ Plan for a GOP Congress

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy rolled out a plan for the GOP should Republicans retake Congress in this November’s Elections.

McCarthy is preparing to take the fight to the Democrats on immigration, energy, and much more. He started the “Commitment to America” in 2020 surrounding the proposed bipartisan China Task Force. Now, his one has become 7: “Jobs and the Economy,” to clean up Biden’s economic disaster, “Future of American Freedoms,” the original “China Task Force,” “American Security, Big Tech, Censorship, and Data,” “Healthy Futures” and “Energy, Climate, and Conservation.”

McCarthy has been hard at work gathering support. So far, he has had dozens of briefings and meetings with stakeholders as well as town halls across the country.

The movement’s primary focus will strike on 4 primary themes: An Economy that’s Strong, a Nation that’s Safe, a Future that’s Built on Freedom, and a Government that’s Accountable.

The Minority Leader’s agenda is well thought out and thorough. Here is what each theme touches on as reported by the Daily Wire:

Under the first theme, An Economy that’s Strong, Republicans outlined the following:

  • Fight Inflation and Lower the Cost of Living
    • Curb wasteful government spending that is raising the price of groceries, gas, cars, and housing, and growing our national debt
    • Increase take-home pay, create good-paying jobs, and bring stability to the economy through pro-growth tax and deregulatory policies
  • Make America Energy Independent and Reduce Gas Prices
    • Maximize production of reliable, cleaner, American-made energy and cut the permitting process time in half to reduce reliance on foreign countries, prevent rolling blackouts, and lower the cost of gas and utilities
  • Strengthen the Supply Chain and End Dependence on China
    • Move supply chains away from China, expand U.S. manufacturing, and enhance America’s economic competitiveness and cyber resiliency

Under the second theme, A Nation That’s Safe, Republicans outlined the following:

  • Secure the Border and Combat Illegal Immigration
    • Fully fund effective border enforcement strategies, infrastructure, and advanced technology to prevent illegal crossings and trafficking by cartels
    • End catch-and-release loopholes, require legal status to get a job, and eliminate welfare incentives
  • Reduce Crime and Protect Public Safety
    • Support 200,000 more police officers through recruiting bonuses and oppose all efforts to defund the police
    • Crack down on prosecutors and district attorneys who refuse to prosecute crimes, while permanently criminalizing all forms of illicit fentanyl
  • Defend America’s National Security
    • Support our troops, invest in an efficient, effective military, establish a Select Committee on China, and exercise peace through strength with our allies to counter increasing global threats

Under the third theme, A Future That’s Built on Freedom, Republicans outlined the following:

  • Make Sure Every Student Can Succeed and Give Parents a Voice
    • Advance the Parents’ Bill of Rights, recover lost learning from school closures, and expand parental choice so over a million more students can receive the education their parents know is best
    • Defend fairness by ensuring that only women can compete in women’s sports
  • Achieve Longer, Healthier Lives for Americans
    • Personalize care to provide affordable options and better quality, delivered by trusted doctors
    • Lower prices through transparency, choice, and competition, invest in lifesaving cures, and improve access to telemedicine
  • Confront Big Tech and Demand Fairness
    • Provide greater privacy and data security protections, equip parents with more tools to keep their kids safe online, and stop companies from putting politics ahead of people

Under the fourth theme, A Government That’s Accountable, Republicans outlined the following:

  • Preserve Our Constitutional Freedoms

    • Uphold free speech, protect the lives of unborn children and their mothers, guarantee religious freedom, and safeguard the Second Amendment
  • Hold Washington Accountable

    • Conduct rigorous oversight to rein in government abuse of power and corruption, provide real transparency, and require the White House to answer for its incompetence at home and abroad
    • Save and strengthen Social Security and Medicare
  • Restore the People’s Voice

    • End special treatment for Members of Congress by repealing proxy voting, and increase accountability in the election process through voter ID, accurate voter rolls, and observer access
