Sunday on New York AM 970 radio show “The Cats Roundtable,” House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) outlined the House legislative agenda for the next 100 days.
“If you want to get the country moving and growing again, there are four columns that you have to look at,” McCarthy told host John Catsimatidis.
According to McCarthy, the next 100 days will see Obamacare repealed and replaced, regulatory reform, tax reform and infrastructure reform.
“One is healthcare,” he began. “We are going to repeal ObamaCare and replace it.”
“We will assure everybody we are replacing [healthcare], just as we’ve always said and just like we’ve had the ideas out there that will allow people to actually have a better relationship with their doctor, not have ‘one size fits all,’ bring more choice into the process … and bring the premiums down. People are going to like what they see,” he stated.
“Secondly that we’re dealing with, and this is some things that we’ve already been passing in the house, is when it comes to regulation,” McCarthy said as he described the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, which forces all new major regulations to be approved by Congress. “We see regulatory reform going forward.”
He continued, “Thirdly, you’ve got to get the economic engine of America growing again, so the middle class can grow again, and to me that’s tax reform so jobs can be created.”
“And then the fourth pillar … is infrastructure. You’ve got to make sure that America has the infrastructure in the 21st century to be able to compete,” McCarthy concluded.
