McCarthy unveils GOP roadmap in effort to win back the House

Source: Politico

McCarthy, the House minority leader, plans to roll out the GOP’s election-year agenda on Tuesday, aiming to win over voters with broad calls for defeating the coronavirus, supporting law enforcement and rebuilding the battered U.S. economy.

The document — dubbed “Commitment to America” and previewed by POLITICO — represents a tacit admission by House Republicans that it’s simply not enough to oppose the Democrats’ coronavirus proposals. McCarthy and other House GOP leaders are eager to outline their own economic recovery plans and show their vision to respond to the pandemic, especially with bipartisan coronavirus talks stalled on Capitol Hill. President Donald Trump has also seen his polling suffer because of his handling of the pandemic, which has left more than 190,000 Americans dead and caused havoc for the U.S. economy.

“House Republicans have to have a plan. How can we work to help this country move forward?” McCarthy said in a telephone interview on Monday. “The fundamental thing you have to do is, how do you defeat this virus and make America healthy? So we lay out a plan within there. At the very start, we tackle Covid.”

The main themes of the Republican agenda are “Restore Our Way of Life,” “Rebuild the Greatest Economy in History,” and “Renew the American Dream.”

8. The GOP has had 10 years (since the ACA passage) to come up with a health plan

that didn't result in someone getting sick, being rejected for coverage for having some "pre-existing condition" and unable to afford needed medications and treatment, and eventually dying.

12. Thanks for posting..The GOP will have totally new leadership in a few months, and

that leadership will also claim to have, "A NEW PLAN."

Why? .....Because it is ...NEW LEADERSHIP...WITH..."A NEW PLAN".

BUT AS ALWAYS....The new plan will resemble the old plan. And the "new plan"" will look very much like the
"old plan." New leadership in the GOP will make NO DIFFERENCE IN THE PLANS. AFTER ALL ....

.........................................IT IS THE GOP..................................................................................
