House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday released details of his “Commitment to America” agenda, including policies to combat inflation, illegal immigration and only allowing women to participate in women’s sports.

McCarthy, R-Calif., has teased the agenda for months as pledge that can help them take back the House majority and a blueprint for governing in 2023. The agenda includes a slate of general policy recommendations in four broad categories: “An Economy That’s Strong;” “A Nation That’s Safe;” “A Future That’s Built on Freedom;” and “A Government That’s Accountable.”

The agenda follows the playbook of the “Contract With America” that helped former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., win a GOP majority in the 1990s. Gingrich will attend a meeting Thursday with Republicans as they roll out the agenda.

HOUSE GOP ‘COMMITMENT TO AMERICA’ TO SPOTLIGHT INFLATION IN BID TO FOCUS CAMPAIGN ON KITCHEN TABLE ISSUES

On inflation, the agenda said Republicans will “Curb wasteful government spending that is raising the price of groceries, gas, cars, and housing, and growing our national debt.”

On safety, it says the GOP will fund border security, fund police, “crack down” on leftist prosecutors and establish a “Select Committee on China.”

The agenda also promises to “Advance a Parents’ Bill of Rights,” ensure “only women can compete in women’s sports,” ban proxy voting in Congress, increase government oversight and boost domestic energy.

Democrats on Friday already started their attacks on McCarthy’s plan and called it an “extreme MAGA agenda.”

“House Republicans are doubling down on an extreme MAGA agenda: to criminalize women’s health care, to slash seniors’ Medicare (including with the repeal of the lower drug prices for seniors in the Inflation Reduction Act), and to attack our democracy,” according to a press release from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.

McCarthy will be in Pittsburgh on Friday with other members to officially roll out the “Commitment to America.”

The agenda comes at a critical time in the midterms. Republicans have held an advantage because of the shaky economy and President Biden’s low approval ratings. But Democrats have claimed some new momentum after Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court and mounting legal troubles for former President Donald Trump.
