THE LINCOLN PROJECT FACT CHECKS KEVIN MCCARTHY

September 23, 2022Kevin McCarthy is near Pittsburgh today to roll out his rebranded Contract with America in an attempt to clean up the image of his ultra-MAGA caucus and make them appealing to suburban voters. McCarthy is desperate to regain the momentum the Party lost over the summer under his failed leadership.

Said Reed Galen, The Lincoln Project co-founder:

“This agenda is meaningless. Kevin McCarthy wants everyone to think he has a positive agenda for America – which nothing could be further from the truth. The ultra-MAGA has total control of the party and is only interested in a national abortion ban and impeaching Joe Biden. The GOP is no longer interested in governing, they just want to obtain power and use it to destroy their enemies.’

The real agenda the ultra-MAGA is committed to:

  1. A national abortion ban: Stefanik supports Republican bill to ban abortions after 15 weeks
  2. Raising prescription drug prices: House GOP Eyes Repeal of Dem’s drug pricing law 
  3. Impeaching Joe Biden: House conservatives prep plans to impeach Biden
  4. Cutting support for Ukraine: Ukraine aid faces tougher crowd if Republicans take over

The Lincoln Project fact-checked McCarthy’s detail lacking rollout video. You can take a look here.

America already has the agenda and real leadership it needs: President Biden is overseeing an economy creating a record number of jobs, supporting freedom fighters in Ukraine, making our cities safer, and working to make the nation energy independent. You can watch our ad talking about President Biden’s successes here.
