With the midterm elections approaching fast, House Republicans just released their “Commitment to America“—a list of policies they’ll pursue if they win a majority.
Even if the GOP comes out on top in November, these policies are likely a few years away from becoming law, since Democrats will retain the White House for at least two more years. But the Commitment is still important, because it illustrates the glaring contrast between the two parties—especially on contentious issues like health care—and lays the groundwork for what a potential GOP trifecta could accomplish starting in 2025.
It’s true that President Biden and many Democrats have not yet embraced a socialized Medicare for All-style system. But Democrats do universally favor a top-down approach to health care with an ever-expanding role for the federal government.
