Republicans Take Their Extreme Agenda On the Road

With RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel, NRSC Chair Rick Scott, and NRCC Chair Tom Emmer announcing their joint travel to campaign for Republicans across the country, we thought it would be a good time to remind you of the greatest hits from the GOP’s agenda if they take the majority in Washington.

In response, DNC spokesperson Ammar Moussa released the following statement:

“We’re thankful voters across the country will hear directly from Republican leadership about their party’s plans to jeopardize Social Security and Medicare, threaten doctors with jail time, and raise prescription drug prices. Every Republican campaigning with McDaniel, Scott, and Emmer is going to have to do some explaining about their support for this toxic agenda.”

Rick Scott has defended Republicans’ plans for a national abortion ban, which Republicans introduced in the House and Senate.

NBC News: “Scott was asked on NBC News’ ‘Meet the Press’ to weigh in on Sen. Lindsey Graham’s bill to ban abortion nationwide after 15 weeks of pregnancy and whether he believes such restrictions should be done on the federal level. ‘Look, there’s arguments to do it at the federal level,’ he said.”

Rick Scott released an agenda that would put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block.

Washington Post Opinion: “[Rick] Scott’s plan would also sunset — eliminate — all federal legislation over five years, under the (risky) assumption that worthy laws would be reenacted. That could mean an end to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, everything else mentioned above — and potentially more.”

Ronna McDaniel came out in support for this agenda, which would put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block for millions of Americans.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel: “Republicans like Senator @ScottforFlorida have real solutions to put us back on track.”

Daily Caller: “Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also endorsed Scott’s 11-point plan, telling the Daily Caller it is full of actual solutions to help the U.S.”
