House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) is gearing up to make his case to the public for why they should vote Republican in the midterm elections. According to an Axios report Tuesday, the California lawmaker is planning to unveil his four-part plan called “Commitment to America” on September 19.

The plan is expected to touch on the GOP’s commitment to an America First economy, public safety, freedom of speech and to holding the federal government accountable. This comes as polls are predicting a likely red wave in the house this November that will help the GOP take back control of the lower chamber.
Other polls are finding the majority of Americans are experiencing financial hardships under President Biden’s leadership. According to a new Gallup poll published Wednesday, 56 percent of respondents said they are facing financial hardship, which is an 11 point increase from last fall.
Breaking down the data even further, middle-income families feeling the brunt of inflation is up 17 points from November and 12 points for upper-income families. Meanwhile, lower-income families said they are experiencing similar levels of financial hardship.
The latest report from July shows inflation is at 8.5 percent and is a top issue for voters heading into the midterm elections.
