House Republicans Defend America’s Energy Security, Address the CCP’s Malign Influence, and Hold the Biden Admin Accountable

10 Jan

The American people deserve a nation that is SAFE, an economy that is STRONG, and a government that’s ACCOUNTABLE. Today, we will work to fulfill these commitments by voting on legislation to increase American energy security, counter the Chinese Communist Party’s malign influence, and hold the Biden administration accountable.

OUR COMMITMENT TO ENERGY SECURITY:
TOPLINE:
Today, House Republicans will work to unleash American energy dominance by voting on the Protecting America’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve from China Act. Energy security IS national security. House Republicans are fighting to ensure one of our greatest geopolitical challenges, China, does not benefit from Joe Biden’s anti-American energy policies.

The Protecting America’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve from China Act:

  • This legislation prevents the Secretary of Energy from selling any of these reserves to an entity affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) or any entity that intends to export it to China.
  • Background:
    • The Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) was created for weather events or national security emergencies—not political expediency.
    • Joe Biden has now drained our SPR by 36%—the lowest level since 1984.
    • In July, the Biden administration risked both our national and energy security by allowing oil from the SPR to be sold to a CCP affiliated company—even as Americans faced skyrocketing prices at the pump.
    • The Biden administration has continued to thwart federal land and offshore lease sales for oil and gas development over the past two years and has hindered the creation of pipelines and large-scale refineries.

OUR COMMITMENT TO CONFRONTING THE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY’S MALIGN INFLUENCE: 
TOPLINE:
House Republicans will work to protect and strengthen America for the next century against the threats we face from a rising Communist China by voting on a resolution to establish the Select Committee on Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

After two years of House Democrats and the Biden administration kowtowing to the CCP, House Republicans will investigate and hold the CCP accountable for their malign actions.

The Select Committee on Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party:

  • The Select Committee on China will provide policy recommendations on how the U.S. can win the economic and technological competition within the CCP and will investigate the CPP for (Courtesy of Speaker Kevin McCarthy):
    • Deceptive trade practices.
    • Supply chain risks and vulnerabilities.
      • Demanding transparency on China’s supply chain dominance regarding critical minerals, technology, and more will give Congress the tools to enhance our economic competitiveness and end our dependence on China.
    • Its role as supplier and producer of fentanyl and its failure to stop or control what is coming out of China:
      • House Republicans will hold China accountable for producing and funneling the main components of lethal illicit fentanyl to criminal cartels that then smuggle this deadly drug across our open southern border.
      • The Drug Enforcement Administration seized enough fentanyl in the U.S. to kill every single American last year, and fentanyl overdose is the leading cause of death for Americans between the ages of 18 and 49.
    • Exploiting U.S. investment to power the CCP national security state.
    • Acquisition of agricultural land in America:
      • Food security is national security. House Republicans will uncover the truth on the CCP purchasing American farmland and agriculture companies and endangering our national security.
      • Currently, China owns 192,000 acres of agricultural land in the U.S.
    • Pursuit of advanced technologies at the expense of U.S. intellectual property.
      • According to House Republicans’ China Task Force, the CCP engages in dangerous intellectual property theft at American universities, costing an estimated $225 billion to $600 billion worth of American intellectual property annually.
    • Advancing its doctrine in U.S. academic institutions.
    • Malign influence, coercion, and lobbying efforts at the state, local and federal level to advance their agenda.
    • Spread of CCP propaganda and its covert threat inside the U.S.

OUR COMMITMENT TO HOLDING THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION ACCOUNTABLE:
TOPLINE:
House Republicans will vote on a resolution establishing a Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government as a select investigative subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee.

Over the past two years, House Democrats have failed to conduct rigorous oversight of the Executive Branch and allowed the Biden administration to encroach on Americans’ constitutional rights. In the 118th Congress, House Republicans will work to deliver on our commitment to a government that’s accountable by rooting out corruption and abuses of power and providing transparency to the American people.

The Select Committee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government:

  • The resolution authorizes the subcommittee to conduct investigations and study:
    • The FBI, DHS, and DOJ’s authority to collect information on and investigate American citizens.
    • How these agencies go about obtaining and using the information from other agencies and the private sector including any unconstitutional, illegal, or unethical activities engaged in by these entities or committed against American citizens.
    • The laws, programs, and activities of the Executive Branch as they relate to the collection of information on American citizens and any issues related to the violation of the civil liberties of American citizens by any Executive Branch agencies.
  • Background:

MAKE NO MISTAKE: House Republicans are fulfilling our Commitment to America.

House Republicans Will Repeal Joe Biden’s IRS Army

10 Jan

In order to work toward a government that’s accountable to the American people, tonight House Republicans will vote on legislation to defund Joe Biden’s army of 87,000 new IRS agents with the Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act.

Families and small businesses are already paying the price of Joe Biden’s inflation tax—they don’t need increased audits by the IRS too. This legislation will defend hardworking Americans’ taxpayer dollars from bureaucratic waste and abuse while holding House Democrats and the Biden administration accountable for their out-of-touch priorities.

THE FAMILY AND SMALL BUSINESS TAXPAYER PROTECTION ACT (Courtesy of House Ways and Means Republicans):

  • Democrats voted to supercharge the IRS with a massive infusion of taxpayer dollars focused on IRS enforcement and the hiring of 87,000 new IRS agents to squeeze American taxpayers.
    • Republicans fought for guardrails to protect middle and lower-income taxpayers from increased audit scrutiny – Democrats rejected these protections.
  • According to CBO, Democrats’ supercharged IRS will cause audit rates to “rise for all taxpayers” and a conservative analysis shows that returning audit rates to 2010 levels would mean 1.2 million more audits with over 700,000 of those falling on taxpayers making $75,000 or less.
  • Democrats have long used the IRS and the tax code as a political weapon and will lead to more IRS abuses like those we’ve seen in the past:
    • Targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups during the Obama Administration.
    • Seeking a bank surveillance scheme on all American bank accounts.
    • Massive leak of information to ProPublica used to support Democrat causes.
    • Unleashing a dangerous new political weapon through the public release of the former President’s private tax returns.
  • Americans deserve a government that’s accountable and one that works FOR them, not AGAINST them. Rescinding funding for 87,000 new IRS agents is a great first step in the right direction.
  • Background:
    • Last Congress, House Democrats rammed through their reckless Inflation EXPANSION Act, allocating $80 billion to supersize the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) with 87,000 new IRS agents and increase audits on middle-class Americans and businesses.
    • This expansion means the IRS would have more staff than the Pentagon, State Department, Border Patrol, and FBI combined.
    • As much as 90% of the funds raised by these new audits will be from taxpayers making less than $200,000 a year.

BOTTOM LINE: America needs more border agents, police officers, or servicemembers defending and securing our nation—not 87,000 more IRS agents. This is our Commitment to America at work!

House Republicans Elect Speaker Kevin McCarthy To Lead House Republicans in Fulfilling Our Commitment to America

7 Jan

Tonight, the House Republicans in the 118th Congress elected Speaker Kevin McCarthy to lead the People’s House in fulfilling our Commitment to America.

Two years of one-party Democrat rule in Washington created crippling inflation, rising energy costs, a historic border crisis, rampant crime, runaway debt, unconstitutional attacks on our fundamental freedoms, and weakness at home and abroad.

Under Speaker McCarthy’s leadership, House Republicans drafted a bold vision to put our nation back on track: we will stand up for an economy that’s strong, a nation that’s safe, a future that’s built on freedom, and a government that’s accountable to the American people.

In November, the American people made their voices heard for a new direction. They wanted House Republicans’ bold vision. Now, we can begin delivering on our Commitment to America.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS’ COMMITMENT TO AMERICA:

  • Commitment to An Economy That’s Strong:
    • Fight Inflation & Support Working Americans
    • Reduce Gas Prices & Restore Energy Independence
    • Secure the Supply Chain & Restock Our Shelves
  • Commitment to A Nation That is Safe:
    • Secure the Southern Border
    • Reduce Crime, Back the Blue, & Stop Illicit Fentanyl
    • Defend Our Nation with Peace through Strength
  • Commitment to a Future That’s Built on Freedom:
    • Ensure Parents Have a Voice in Education
    • Confront Big Tech & Advance Free Speech
    • Better, Healthier, & Longer Lives for All Americans
  • Commitment to A Government That’s Accountable:
    • Ensure Faith in Our Free & Fair Elections
    • Reclaim Oversight & Hold the Biden White House Accountable
    • Protect Our Rights and Serve the People

Nearly 80 Suspected Terrorists Have Attempted to Illegally Cross Our Southern Border in This Fiscal Year Alone

22 Sep

Under Joe Biden’s open-border agenda, the number of suspected terrorists who have attempted to illegally cross our southern border is now triple the total amount for the last five years combined. In August, 12 more illegal immigrants on the Terrorist Screening Database were apprehended at ports of entry, bringing the total for this fiscal year to a record 78.

BIDEN’S BORDER CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • In August, there were 203,597 illegal immigrant encounters at our southern border.
    • That is a 307% increase in illegal crossings compared to the last August of President Trump’s administration.
    • Nearly 70% of these encounters were single adults.
    • There have now been 18 straight months of OVER 150,000 illegal border crossings.
  • There have now been 78 suspected terrorists apprehended attempting to illegally cross our southern border so far in FY22 – triple the previous five years combined.
  • Since Joe Biden took office, roughly 3.5 MILLION illegal immigrants have been apprehended at our southern border.
  • In August, fentanyl seizures increased 6% from July.
    • There has now been OVER 12,000 pounds of poisonous fentanyl seized this fiscal year alone.
  • Under Joe Biden and his administration’s historic border crisis, illegal immigrants will now cost American taxpayers OVER $20 BILLION a year.
  • This month, Border Patrol is now encountering up to 8,000 illegal immigrants crossing the southern border each day.
  • Last month, Joe Biden and his administration decided to make the border crisis WORSE by formally ending former President Trump’s successful ‘Remain in Mexico’ program.
  • There have now been OVER 500,000 known “got-aways” at our southern border since the beginning of FY’22 in October.
  • According to court documents, the Biden administration has allowed over 1 million illegal immigrants to settle in the U.S.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Border security IS national security. While 78 suspected terrorists have been fortunately caught, how many made it through due to the chaos of Biden’s border crisis?

Congressional Democrats Push to Raise Taxes Amid a Recession

29 Jul

In the midst of a recession, Congressional Democrats are planning to raise taxes on America’s job creators, throw money at their Green New Deal agenda, and worsen America’s inflation crisis with their Far-Left Socialist reconciliation package.

THE FACTS ON DEMOCRATS’ SOCIALIST RECONCILIATION PACKAGE:

  • Raises taxes on businesses when Americans are already paying more for just about everything.
    • These tax increases will be passed on to the consumer, stifle reinvestment in infrastructure, R&D, and workers, and only exacerbate the current supply chain crisis.
  • Allows the IRS to hire 87,000 new agents to target American families and businesses.
  • Implements socialist price control schemes for prescription drugs that will negatively impact seniors, patients, those with rare diseases, and their families.
  • Extends Obamacare subsidies—enacted under the American Rescue Plan and set to expire after 2022—for 3 more years, through 2025, benefiting the wealthy and subsidizing people who already have insurance.
    • This expands federal spending without enacting any meaningful reform to a broken system.
    • Incites inflationary pressure when inflation is already at a 40- year high.
  • Spends $369 billion in “Green New Deal” initiatives. Americans deserve efficient, affordable, and American-made energy, yet Democrats continue to pursue policies that have doubled gas prices since Joe Biden took office and destroyed U.S. energy independence.

BIDEN’S ECONOMIC CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS: 

  • Inflation is a tax on ALL Americans.
  • Click HERE to see how much Biden-flation has impacted your home state.
  • A new report yesterday shows the real gross domestic product (GDP) decreased at an annual rate of 0.9% in the second quarter of 2022, according to an advanced estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
    • This follows a GDP decline of 1.6% within the first quarter, meaning that we have hit the rule-of-thumbrecession definition: two consecutive quarters with negative GDP readings.
  • In June, the CPI soared 9.1% for the 12 months ending June, the largest 12-month increase since the period ending December 1981.
  • Biden’s inflation crisis has cost the average American workerOVER $3,000 in annual income.
  • The skyrocketing cost of goods and services will cost the average American household nearly $6,000.
  • Real average hourly earnings decreased 3.6%, seasonally adjusted, from June 2021 to June 2022 because of Biden’s inflation crisis.

IT’S SIMPLE: Instead of addressing the root cause of inflation – out-of-control government spending – Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats are now doubling down to ‘Build Back Broke.’

  • 54% of Americans say the middle class has not benefited from this administration’s failed Far-Left policies.
  • Last year, Joe Biden told the American people that inflation was just “temporary,” which was FALSE.

IT’S SIMPLE: Instead of addressing the root cause of inflation, out-of-control government spending, Joe Biden and Congressional Democrats are now pushing for a revived ‘Build Back Broke’ agenda, doubling down on their Far-Left Socialist policies, that have led our economy into a recession.

House Democrats Focus on Pelosi’s Witch-Hunt Rather Than the Crises Facing Americans

21 Jul

As Americans face the highest inflation in 40 years, skyrocketing crime, a historic border crisis, and a never-ending energy crisis, House Democrats have yet to hold one primetime hearing to hear firsthand from the American people, who are struggling as a result of Democrats’ failed Far-Left agenda.

Instead, House Democrats will host their second primetime hearing featuring Lame Duck Speaker Pelosi’s illegitimate political witch-hunt tonight.

BIDEN’S ECONOMIC CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • Inflation is a tax on ALL Americans.
  • In June, the CPI soared 9.1% for the 12 months ending June, the largest 12-month increase since the period ending December 1981.

 BIDEN’S ENERGY CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • On the day that President Biden was sworn into office, the average price for a gallon of gas nationwide was approximately $2.39.
  • The national average for a gallon of gas is $4.44 as of Thursday.
  • Americans are spending OVER $2,000 extra a year on gas under Joe Biden.
  • According to a new Fox News poll, more Americans blame President Biden for high gas prices than Russia or oil companies.

BIDEN’S BORDER CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • In June, there were 207,416 migrant encounters at our southern border.
    • June was the fourth consecutive month of OVER 200,000 encounters.
    • That is a 527% increase in apprehension compared to the last June of President Trump’s administration.
    • There have now been 16 straight months of OVER 150,000 illegal border crossings.
    • This June is the worst June on record, according to CBP data.
  • Since Joe Biden took office, OVER 3.1 MILLION illegal immigrants have been apprehended at our southern border.
  • In June, an additional six illegal immigrants apprehended at our southern border were on the terrorist watch list bringing the total to 56 for FY22.

DEMOCRATS’ CRIME CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • Six major Democrat-run U.S. cities, including New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Atlanta, and Baltimore are now on track to surpass the historic violent crime wave of last year.
    • 12 Democrat-run cities broke annual homicide records last year.

House Democrats Are Coming For Our Guns

20 Jul

House Democrats decided they haven’t gone far enough when it comes to attacking Americans’ Second Amendment rights and once again are comingfor our guns.

On Wednesday, July 20th, the House Judiciary Committee will markup H.R. 1808, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2021, and H.R. 2814, the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act. H.R. 1808 would ban AR-15s and similar semi-automatic rifles, which are among the most popular firearms being sold today, with nearly 20 million in circulation as of late 2020. H.R. 2814 would repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which was enacted in 2005 with broad bipartisan support, to protect the firearms industry from frivolous and politically-motivated lawsuits.

Assault Weapons Ban Fast Facts

  • AR-15-style rifles are NOT “assault weapons” or “assault rifles.” An assault rifle is fully automatic, a machine gun. Automatic firearms have been severely restricted from civilian ownership since 1934.
  • A Department of Justice assessment on renewing the prior federal law banning categories of semi-automatic firearms and limiting magazine capacity determined that the “impact on gun violence is likely to be small at best, and perhaps too small for reliable measurement.”
  • The RAND Corporation conducted a comprehensive survey of existing, high quality literature on the effects of various gun control measures and concluded there was no reliable evidence that magazine capacity limits or bans on categories of semi-automatic firearms have a beneficial effect on reducing violent crime generally or mass shootings in particular.
  • The DOJ’s annual Uniform Crime Report (UCR) consistently showsthat murders from all rifles – not just semi-automatics – are less than that of murders committed with knives, clubs and fists.
  • Even the left-leaning Politifact rated this comparison “Mostly True” after parsing the data.

GUN OWNERS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • The Biden administration is ignoring the fact that Americans – of all races, creeds, colors and all walks of life – are purchasing firearms in record numbers.
  • Over 14 million Americans purchased a firearm for the first time in 2020 and 2021.
  • Background checks for the sale of a gun shattered previous records in 2020 at over 21 million, and another 18.5 million were completed in 2021.
  • For 35 months straight, there have been over 1 million background checks for gun sales.
  • According to a recent survey of industry retailers, nearly 47 percent of first-time gun buyers in 2021 inquired about training and 43 percent signed up for training.
  • Nearly 23 percent of retailers indicated that first-time gun buyers in 2020 purchased another firearm in 2021.
  • Over 33 percent of first-time gun buyers in 2021 were women.
  • 44 percent of retailers saw an increase of African-Americans purchasing firearms in 2021.
  • Nearly 40 percent of retailers saw an increase of Hispanic-Americans purchasing firearms in 2021.
  • Over 27 percent of retailers saw an increase of Asian-Americans purchasing firearms in 2021.
  • Over 18 percent of retailers saw an increase of Native-Americans purchasing firearms in 2021.
  • Nearly 14 percent of retailers saw an increase of Native-Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders purchasing firearms in 2021.

IT’S SIMPLE: While Far-Left House Democrats continue to push unconstitutional gun control measures, House Republicans will stand for the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.
