If the “Trump Party” Wins this Midterm
“It’s no longer the Republican Party, it’s the Trump Party,” said Eric Trump. Finally, a Trump telling the truth. So, what will happen if the Trump Party wins? Here’s a summary from Kate Riga’s recent article, What Republicans Will Do If They Win The House, In Their Own Words.
Lots and lots of investigations – They say they’ll investigate Hunter Biden, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Biden’s immigration policies, the pullout from Afghanistan, the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, the causes of inflation, the Jan. 6 committee and baseless claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election.
Slashing Social Security & Medicare – They plan to demand cuts to Medicare and Social Security. The Republican Study Committee budget this summer called for raising the age of eligibility for both Medicare and Social Security and suggested reducing payroll taxes that fund Social Security, instead redirecting them to private alternatives.
Continue their culture war – Republicans decried “woke politics” in the military and lament about “discrimination” towards people who oppose same-sex marriage.
And if voters keep the Dem majority in the House?
Codify Reproductive Rights – President Joe Biden said he will push to codify Roe v. Wade and secure the right to an abortion if Democrats retain control of Congress in the midterm elections.
End the filibuster to enshrine same-sex marriage – Pelosi has gone on record to say the legislative filibuster should be abolished so Democrats can more easily enshrine same-sex “marriage” in federal law.
Other priorities – Further improving the economy, climate change action, fair immigration policy, sensible gun control and embedding racial justice across Federal agencies, policies, and programs plus advancing a comprehensive equity agenda to deliver criminal justice reform, end disparities in healthcare access and education, and strengthen fair housing.
