McCarthy outlines GOP priorities if Republicans take control of House in midterms

Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy outlined several priorities for his party if they are to regain control of the House in the 2022 midterms.

“Republican priorities when we regain the majority next year: 1 – Hold the Biden Administration accountable 2 – Secure the Border 3 – Make our cities safe again 4 – Rein in the out-of-control inflation 5 – Stop the overreach of government mandates,” the California Republican tweeted Friday.

A source familiar with McCarthy’s thinking told Fox News that the GOP agenda is much larger than the points outlined in the press conference and includes tackling issues like supply chain issues, Biden’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, the porous southern border, questions about the origin of COVID, and a variety of other issues.

The source told Fox News that Republicans have already sent preservation notices and document requests that “will be ready on Day 1 to use the various tools at our disposal” to get answers on issues such as politically motivated moves by Biden’s Department of Justice and the disclosure of private citizen information from the IRS and NSA.
