House Republicans unveil the blueprint of their new policy agenda, to be used in the next Congress if they win back a majority in November's elections. It's the first time the GOP has released a political agenda of this nature since 1994's "Contract With America."
The new plan consists of a 21-page document entitled “Pledge to America.” (The text can be found on Taegan Goddard's Political Wire.) Some of the key issues addressed are, not surprisingly, taxes, defense and a plan to “repeal and replace the government takeover of health care with common-sense solutions…”
Soren Dayton, a Republican consultant and activist, worked for John McCain's presidential campaign. He joins us to help unpack this much-anticipated Republican agenda. Dayton is also the co-founder of the blog, thenextright.com.
