Five Things A Republican Majority In U.S. House of Representatives Should Do

Printed from:

It looks like the Republican Party will win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. (The U.S. Senate was still up for grabs as dawn approached on Wednesday.)

If that’s the case, then Republicans will have a serious opportunity to thwart President Joe Biden’s liberal agenda.

Here are five things that Republicans should do with this newfound power:


1.  Rein In Spending

Part of the reason why the country has 8.2 percent inflation is runaway government spending. That includes the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan that Republican politicians voted against.

Yes, Republicans did a poor job on spending under George W. Bush and Donald Trump, but Republican legislatures helped reduce the deficit under Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Maybe they can force some fiscal responsibility on the people who tell Joe Biden what to do.


2.  Investigate The Border

The U.S.-Mexico border is seeing a record number of migrant encounters.

The Biden administration clearly isn’t doing its job. Republicans should use their power to find out what the heck is going on.

A weak border is a problem because it allows drugs, weapons, and illegal immigrants to enter the country. Maybe a Republican majority can get to the bottom of it. 


3.  Hold Tough Show Votes

One of the nicer things about being in power is that your side gets to decide which bills get to come up for a vote. 

Republicans should do that, and force their colleagues across the aisle to publicly take unpopular positions.

Some ideas:  banning race-based affirmative action in college admissions, banning cloning and human-animal hybrids, and outlawing sex-selective abortion.

No, they won’t become law. You need the White House on board to get that done. But such votes will put Democrats in the box they belong in. 


4.  No Roe v. Wade Codification

President Joe Biden wants to make one of the worst Supreme Court rulings in American history the law of the land – and he wants to kill the filibuster to do it.

Too bad.

With Republicans in control, the Democratic Party has no hope of codifying a decision that has killed more than 60 million unborn children. Republicans ought to stick a fork in this bad bill — publicly.


5.  Stop The Equality Act

While The Equality Act has a nice name, it’s not a nice bill.

It would make gender identity a protected class nationwide. This would not only undermine states’ rights, but it would defy biological reality.

If a state wants public high school or college sports athletes to compete based on their biological sex instead of their gender identity, the Equality Act would prevent that from happening. It also would remove the ability of religious schools and institutions to defend themselves from a lawsuit from an individual or the U.S. Attorney General’s office by appealing to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993.

That’s the liberals’ idea of “Equality” — take away religious freedom.
