House Democrats Preemptively Pan GOP's 'Extreme' Policy Agenda

House Democrats Preemptively Pan GOP’s ‘Extreme’ Policy Agenda
“Voters are rejecting the cynical reality that is the MAGA Republican movement,” House Democrats’ campaign chief said.

House Democrats delivered a preemptive rebuttal of their Republican peers’ policy rollout on Thursday, branding it as an “extreme” and “cynical” fusion of Donald Trump-inspired authoritarianism, infringements on key personal freedoms and traditional trickle-down economics.

In a conference call with reporters, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.), who chairs House Democrats’ campaign arm, cited Democratic special-election wins in vacant House seats in Alaska and New York as evidence that the Republican policy agenda is already unpopular.

“Voters are rejecting the cynical reality that is the MAGA Republican movement, that is extreme and dangerous, that has taken away our reproductive freedom, that’s threatening our political freedom by ignoring the attack on our Capitol, and by making it harder to vote,” said Maloney, who spoke alongside Rep. Sara Jacobs (D-Calif.) and Democratic National Committee Chairman Jaime Harrison.


The Democrats’ frontal assault was timed to precede House Republicans’ rollout of the “Commitment to America,” a policy framework for a potential GOP governing majority. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and other top Republicans are unveiling the plan in Monongahela, Pennsylvania, an industrial town outside of Pittsburgh, on Friday. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) is due to respond to McCarthy with remarks in Pittsburgh itself.

2. Same article has this link: "Document goes after prescription drug reform and opens the door to

Social Security and Medicare cuts".

Damn GOP are hellbent on cutting necessary entitlements programs for millions of Americans. We've all paid into the social security and many of us continue to. It's benefitting many elderly Americans who don't have other retirement income.

3. Turn about is fair play. The GOP for decades has used the lie that Democrats are too extreme. We've

reached the point where a majority see the GOP as too extreme.
