In less than two years, President Biden and Speaker Pelosi pushed through an agenda that has ruined our economy and pushed inflation to alarming levels. Far left socialists have opened our southern borders to illegal immigrants, made us dependent on hostile foreign nations for our energy, and strengthened our enemies overseas. Week after week, Democrats refuse to consider any bills in the House of Representatives that would address the serious problems families face.
we have a plan Today, House Republicans are introducing our Commitment to America, a bold conservative vision for a prosperous America that will reverse Biden’s and Pelosi’s self-inflicted crises. Our plan is based on four core principles: a strong economy; a nation that is safe; a future built on freedom; and responsible government.
Despite warnings from Larry Summers, chief economic adviser to Presidents Clinton and President Obama, Democrats are wasting $10 trillion in taxpayer dollars on big government spending. The result is skyrocketing inflation, which has reached its highest level in nearly 40 years. Biden and Pelosi’s inflation is crushing hard-working families and pulling $460 out of their pockets every month.
Democrats passed what they call the “Inflation Reduction Act,” but that bill actually raises taxes on workers and small businesses and hires 87,000 IRS agents to screen low- and middle-income families, the Congressional Budget Office confirms.
Our Commitment to America calls for reducing wasteful government spending and lowering taxes. This will make it easier for businesses to lower their prices and allow struggling families to keep more of their hard-earned cash.
The Biden administration must understand that the duplication of radical climate policies ignores the reality of the world’s current energy needs. Our plan would require the Biden administration to adopt an overarching energy strategy that includes oil, natural gas and nuclear power that we produce here at home. This would reduce skyrocketing gas prices and rising energy bills for households.
Democrats support police defunding and amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Violent crime and murder are out of control as Democrats have slashed police budgets, ended bailouts and allowed violent criminals back onto our streets.
This year, homicide rates across the country are up about 50 percent, and serious assaults are up 36 percent since 2019.
More than 100,000 Americans died from drug overdoses in 2021. About two-thirds came from opioids like fentanyl, which cartels smuggle into our country across Biden’s open southern border.
Republicans have a simple solution: team up with law enforcement and secure America’s border.
By providing funding for state and local law enforcement through programs like COPS grants, we aim to make it easier for police departments to hire the skilled officers they need to keep our communities safe.
By asking the federal government to secure our country’s borders by renovating border wall construction, it will make it harder for migrants to enter our country illegally and drug cartels will not be able to take advantage of an open southern border.
Unlike Democrats, Republicans will put parents and children ahead of union bosses.
When concerned parents spoke up at school board meetings, the head of the country’s largest school board wrote a letter to President Biden, urging his administration to treat parent involvement as a possible act of domestic terrorism. Days later, Biden’s Justice Department released a memo equating parents who exercised their right to free speech with domestic terrorists.
As millions of children struggled with distance and remote learning, the Biden administration coordinated with teachers’ union bosses — instead of parents — and rewrote critical parts of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance on reopening schools. This comes after union bosses complained that the guidelines for opening schools were too favourable.
Passing a Parents’ Bill of Rights gives parents a stronger voice and greater ability to participate in their children’s education.
Around the world, Democrats have led America down a path of decline. President Biden hastily withdrew US troops from Afghanistan, leaving behind billions of dollars worth of military equipment and allowing the Taliban to take control of the country.
We are witnessing the worst border crisis in American history. More than 3.2 million migrants were arrested during Joe Biden’s presidency.
How can Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas keep their jobs?
Despite controlling both houses of Congress, Democrats have refused to investigate the failures and mismanagement of our country by the Biden administration. This is a clear breach of duty.
Enough is enough!
Republicans will use the power of congressional oversight to hold the Biden administration accountable.
President Biden and Speaker Pelosi are more interested in implementing their far-left agenda than helping families in need.
We understand the struggles of the American people and have a bold conservative plan that will reverse the disastrous policies of Biden and Pelosi and put our nation back on track.
