The Hill reports:
House GOP leaders have planned a high-profile event at Washington D.C.’s Newseum Tuesday morning to launch the start of their “America Speaking Out” project.
Chief Deputy Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is in charge of the initiative to result in the release of a set of policy items that Republicans would pursue if they won back control of the House in November.
According to officials involved in the effort, “America Speaking Out” will focus on gathering feedback from Americans on what items that lawmakers should be focusing on in the future.
GOP Conference Chairman Mike Pence (Ind.) said on Monday “it’s part of a process of engaging Americans.”
Without offering additional details, Pence noted that the project was not a product of the National Republican Congressional Committee: “’America Speaking Out’ is not a project of the political” campaign arm, Pence said. Any questions will be answered at the presser.
Participants will include America Speaking Out Chairman & Chief Deputy Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), America Speaking Out Vice Chairman Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL), Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH), Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA)
Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (R-IN), Republican Conference Vice Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), and
Rep. Candice Miller (R-MI).
#1 on their agenda should be REPEAL AND REPLACE.
