Biden Criticizes GOP Politics To-Do List, Warns ‘MAGA Republicans’ Are in Charge

President Biden is criticizing the Republicans’ recently introduced bill, calling it “a thin set of policy goals” that offer “little to no detail” about what the GOP intends to accomplish if it wins a majority in Congress this fall.

Speaking at a Democratic Party fundraiser hours after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy unveiled his party’s policy proposal, Biden criticized Republicans for “opposing and obstructing” his administration and offering little in return.

“Let’s take a look at what Kevin said today,” Biden said. “He said the Republicans want to ‘preserve our constitutional liberty.’ That sounds great. I’m totally in favor of doing that too.”

“But look what they have actually done,” the president said. “The ‘MAGA Republicans’ simply cheered and embraced the first Supreme Court decision [on abortion] in all of our history … that just didn’t fail to preserve a constitutional liberty, it actually took away a fundamental right that had been granted by the same court.”

McCarthy, of California, was joined by dozens of fellow Republicans to unveil the GOP’s “Pledge to America” ​​early Friday, offering a plan that lawmakers say is inspired by the 1994 “Contract with America.” of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

The agenda includes policies designed to mitigate inflation, reduce federal regulations, bolster public safety and address illegal immigration.

Republicans have also pledged to make the country energy independent, arguing that doing so will help reduce high gas prices that they have blamed on Democratic policies.

Near the top of the to-do list is investigating the Biden administration on a wide range of issues, including the politicization of the Justice Department.

This year, House Republicans are expected to gain control of the chamber. Republicans only need a net gain of five seats to win a majority.

Lawmakers said their proposals were developed through input from the public across the country. They heard from local attendees at the town hall-style agenda launch.

Democrats have painted the Republican Party as extremist and clung to former President Donald Trump.

In addition to criticizing Republicans over abortion, Biden seized on what he called Republican attempts in Congress to roll back Medicare and Social Security.

He also mocked Republican calls for safer communities, accused Republicans of being “insurgents” in the wake of the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on Capitol Hill, voted against legislation to fund local police departments and he called within the Republican Party to defund the FBI after the attack. Raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property in Palm Beach, Florida.

“The MAGA Republicans control the Republican Party right now,” Biden said. “That is obvious. So the stakes are high here.”
