House minority leader Kevin McCarthy on Friday released the 2022 Republican Commitment to America.
The list is a safe and toothless list of promises to the American public.
The country is under Communist assault – the economy is in freefall to undetermined depths – foreign policy is a disaster – government has actually turned on its people – the FBI is a Stasi offshoot – inflation is wrecking American families – our youth is dying from candy-colored fentanyl – the border is wide open – there is NO free speech permitted online – dimwit AOC is making policy – the experimental vaccine is causing 6 foot clots in children – the Taliban is flying our helicopters, and Fauci still has a job.
The country has never been in such clear and present danger.
And we get a milquetoast list by an uninspiring lawmaker who wants Twitter and Facebook to silence fellow Republicans.
Did Frank Luntz write this?
** Investigations into the deaths of four Trump supporters on Jan. 6
** Committee hearings with Lt. Mike Byrd and Officer Lila Morris
** How many government operatives were working the Jan. 6 riot? What was their roll?
** Daily Hunter Biden committee hearings
** Defunding the FBI
** Ensuring free and fair elections
** Outlaw drop boxes forever
** Match funding of US border wall to Ukraine spending
** Impeachment hearings on Sec. Mayorkas and AG Merrick Garland on day one
** Introduce first article of impeachment against Joe Biden by end of January 2023
** Pass bill to send ALL ILLEGAL MIGRANTS to Sanctuary cities and states
** Pass Rep. Gohmert’s legislation to move political prisoner trials to their home districts
That’s just a start.
Julie Kelly is right.

I understand this is a summary but I hope the short shrift given to widespread government abuses (DOJ, FBI, CDC, DHS, NIH) is more detailed over the next several weeks. pic.twitter.com/6kYdCc89Jw

The New York Post reported:
House Republicans pledged Friday to end soaring inflation and reduce crime by serving as a check on President Biden if they reclaim power — calling the party’s midterm election platform a “Commitment to America.“
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) announced the big-tent framework inside an HVAC manufacturing plant outside Pittsburgh, Pa.
“We want to roll [the plan] out to you, to the entire country, to know exactly what we will do if you would trust us and give us the ability to take a new direction for this country,” McCarthy said.
The kickoff featured a business-casual Q&A where dozens of GOP legislators took turns fielding questions.
The Republicans vowed to rein in government spending to lower the worst inflation in 41 years — with consumer prices up 8.3% over 12 months as of August.
Speakers also promised to address crime, including record-high illegal immigration, rising violent crime in cities and fentanyl smuggling that’s accelerated overdose deaths.
