House Republicans plan to pass pipeline, border wall legislation and more after midterm takeover

House Republicans have fairly high confidence that they will regain a majority in the House after the midterm elections, and they are already planning to pass major legislation that is aligned with their agenda even if it can’t get past the Senate filibuster.

“The House GOP wants to pass bills to revive the Keystone XL pipeline, finish the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and establish a ‘parental bill of rights’ to capitalize on Covid-19-era frustration with education, according to interviews with more than half a dozen Republican lawmakers,” the report from Politico stated.

The idea, according to Politico, is to score points for the eventual Republican presidential candidate in 2024.

“If the case doesn’t get you to 60 votes in the Senate, at least it gets you to a point where hopefully you are winning the argument by the time you walk into the next presidential election,” Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) said.

“Political” efforts

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is spearheading the plans, and he also plans to eliminate all of the investigations into former President Donald Trump.

Jordan said that the January 6 committee is a “political” operation designed to keep Trump from running again in 2024 rather than a genuine attempt to get to the truth.

“There’s been subpoenas issued to 11 individuals, 11 American citizens who asked the government permission on an application to hold the Trump rally,” Jordan said. “The government granted it and now the January 6 committee petitions them to ask them questions about exercising their First Amendment right to assemble.”

“And why would they subpoena me? I didn’t do anything wrong — I talked to the president,” Jordan said. “I talk to the president all the time. I just think that’s — you know where I’m at on this commission — this is all about going after President Trump. That seems obvious.”

“Everyone in the country sees this as a political operation. This is designed to get after President Trump. Because they don’t want him to run again,” he added.

Undoing Biden harm

Democrats have seemed to use the same strategy since taking over the House majority in 2019, passing extreme bills that had no hope of getting enough Republican votes to pass the filibuster.

It has helped to make their agenda clear, which in their case hasn’t helped them because it is so extreme.

What Republicans plan to do, however, is try to undo some of the harmful parts of the Biden agenda, which should go over much better with the American public.
