House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy detailed his plans on Tuesday for the Republican agenda in the event the party takes control of the House in November.
McCarthy made his comments in a column posted on the Fox News website on Tuesday. The plan is called “Commitment to America.”
“Without question, we must and we will defeat COVID-19 and keep America healthy,” he said.
Noting the push to deliver a vaccine by year’s end, he said Republicans will work “to triple rapid testing nationwide” and “invest in therapeutics while lowering drug prices across the board.”
“We will commit to get America working again and add 10 million new jobs through proven, pro-growth policies,” he said. “That starts with $200 billion in forgivable loans to local businesses through the Paycheck Protection Program.”
And he called for an end to U.S. dependence on China.
“We will increase U.S. manufacturing and build supply chain resiliency through full expensing on a permanent basis for all U.S. investment and restoration of domestic production tax credits,” McCarthy said.
He also called for “improving our police forces, not defunding them.”
“We will increase funding for law enforcement by $1.75 billion for better police training, community policing, and equipment, including 500,000 more body cameras on the street,” McCarthy said.
And he added: “To renew the American Dream, we will ensure every child in every neighborhood can go to the school that is best for them, while directing millions towards high-quality STEM education.”
He added: “While some on the other side have all but given up on America, we make a Commitment to America.”
