House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy has put Democrat President Joe Biden on notice, warning Republicans are ready to launch multiple investigations on “Day One” of taking Congress back.
McCarthy revealed the GOP plans to investigate the Biden administration and the Democrats when the GOP wins the House after the midterms.
“Biden protects liberal activists but turns a blind eye to rising crime,” McCarthy said.
“Biden has opened the border, supported mandates that have hurt students in the classroom and parental rights, allowed Big Tech to silence conservatives, and has overseen leaks of private information on American citizens under his watch.
“Joe Biden promised to unite the country, but instead he has done everything in his power to divide Americans, go after his political opponents, and cover up for his failures – both at home with a costly economic policy that has grown deficits and inflation and abroad with the disastrous withdrawal in Afghanistan.
“Furthermore, he’s ignored the origins of COVID and holding the Chinese government accountable while government-imposed mandates burden our economy and crush our way of life.
“The American people deserve answers from an Administration that is not being held to account by one-party rule in Congress.
“A Republican majority would use every tool at our disposal for aggressive accountability of Biden’s failures because Americans need Washington to work for them, and not the other way around.
“House Democrats have advanced a plan that not only ignores addressing conservative censorship, it makes it worse. And their plan empowers a federal bureaucracy with no accountability.
“We have more faith in elected state leaders than in the unelected federal bureaucracy, which is as ideologically homogeneous as Big Tech.
“In other words, former House member Jeff Landry will more effectively prosecute anti-competitive behavior than Lina Khan.
“Americans see Big Business drifting further away from creating jobs and building products and services.
“They’ve noticed corporate America often takes sides not because of a shared interest in our future — but for fear of cancel culture or progressive repercussions.
“House Republicans will always speak on behalf of the people we represent, and if we earn the opportunity to serve as the majority — which is quite likely — we will fight for working Americans, period.”
A McCarthy spokesperson said:
“We have already sent preservation notices and document requests and will be ready on day one to use the various tools at our disposal to get the answers Americans are demanding.
“Democrats in Congress have skirted real accountability for too long while shielding this Administration from answering the tough questions.”
