“Today’s deployment is the latest evidence of House Republicans’ unreserved commitment to MAGA: to go all-in on an extremist agenda designed to dramatically diminish the health, liberty, and security of Americans,” a- she said on Friday.


“This extreme and alarming new MAGA platform threatens to criminalize women’s health care, cut seniors’ health insurance and increase prescription drug prices, and attack our free and fair elections. “, continued the speaker.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., pushed back against Pelosi’s attack on the package in an interview with Fox News Digital, saying their plan will “actually set America on a new path.” .

“Because the Democrats caused inflation, crime on our streets by cutting police funding, spending sprees causing inflation,” McCarthy said. “Attacking American energy and driving up the price of gas, causing inflation. This is a plan to fix the problems the Democrats have created, and I think the American public should have an election based on ideas.”

“I think the reason she’s doing this is that she can’t come forward on policies and the damage they’ve done to America,” the GOP leader continued. “And they have no plan to fix it.”

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise told Fox News Digital that Pelosi “shows the country every day how out of touch she is with America.”

“When she says American energy independence is extreme, I think people know who the extremist is,” the GOP whip said. “When she says securing our border is extreme, so that we don’t have more than 100,000 young people dying from fentanyl, she’s being extreme.”

Republican Representative Steve Scalise called the commitment to America "a bold, conservative response to what's broken in Washington."

The comments from the GOP leadership come as Democrats take aim at the Red Party’s medium-term agenda.


The agenda includes a list of policy recommendations in four broad categories: “An economy that is strong”; “A nation that is safe”; “A future based on freedom”; and “Responsible Government”.

GOP leaders say the agenda was shaped with input from Republicans across the country, with the express purpose of avoiding “top-down” party politics.
