RNC Chair: GOP Principles Are Unifying Everyone From Boehner to Cruz to Gingrich
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus was on “Hannity” to discuss how the GOP is reuniting its party.
He recently unveiled 11 GOP principles ahead of the midterm elections. The Republican Party is calling them the “Principles for American Renewal.”
“We have a responsibility […] as a party to tell people what we're for and we also have a responsibility to try to unite our party. I mean we've got a lot of different voices and I'm proud to say as far as party unity and this document and this vision, everyone from Mike Lee to John Boehner to Ted Cruz […] to Mitch McConnell to Newt Gingrich, they're onboard with what we're doing and social conservatives like Tony Perkins and others, they're onboard as well."
Read the 11-point plan below, via GOP.com:
- Constitution: Our Constitution should be preserved, valued and honored.
- Economy: We need to start growing America’s economy instead of Washington’s economy so that hard-working Americans see better wages and more opportunity.
- Budget: We need to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, make government more efficient, and leave the next generation with opportunity, not debt.
- Health care: We need to start over with real health care reform that puts patients and their doctors in charge, not unelected bureaucrats in Washington.
- Veterans: Our veterans have earned our respect and gratitude, and no veteran should have to wait in line for months or years just to see a doctor.
- Security: Keeping America safe and strong requires a strong military, growing the economy, energy independence, and secure borders.
- Education: Every child should have an equal opportunity to get a great education; no parent should be forced to send their child to a failing school.
- Poverty: The best anti-poverty program is a strong family and a good job, so our focus should be on getting people out of poverty by lifting up all people and helping them find work.
- Values: Our country should value the traditions of family, life, religious liberty, and hard work.
- Energy: We should make America energy independent by encouraging investment in domestic energy, lowering prices, and creating jobs at home.
- Immigration: We need an immigration system that secures our borders, upholds the law, and boosts our economy.
