Friday in Pennsylvania, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy challenged President Biden to a primetime debate while unveiling the House GOP’s Commitment to America plan.
McCarthy said in an interview with Just the News why he desires a public fight with Biden, who he claims is already attacking the Commitment to America.
McCarthy stated, after announcing the new House Republican blueprint for legislative action at an event in Washington County near Pittsburgh, that “We have a plan for a new direction for America.” The Democrats have delivered us inflation, violence in our streets, and a border that is now importing fentanyl, the leading cause of death among Americans aged 18 to 45.
“If the president wants to criticize this plan, let’s debate the policies. We’re the only ones with a plan to fix the problem. They created the problem with no plan to fix it.”
Biden called the House Republican agenda as “a thin series of policy goals with little or no detail.”
McCarthy, when asked if he believes Biden would accept the offer to debate, stated, “I think he would probably hide because he can’t live up to his own policies.”
