When it comes to socialism, the Republicans are not going to surrender to the Democrats.
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise said the GOP is prepared to fight “tooth and nail” against the “socialist agenda.”
Scalise pointed out the liberals are pushing the socialism into the middle of the Democrat party:
If you look at where these members are, they’re not moderates anymore. They’re liberals versus the socialists on the Democrat side. And frankly, the liberals were voting for the socialist agenda the last two years. Everything from the Green New Deal, to Medicare for All, to defunding the police and raising taxes — they voted for it. The voters rejected them, and now they’re yelling about it. You know, if they just voted with us and worked with us on a lot of things, they would not have had those problems, but regardless of that, we’re going to continue fighting for the conservative beliefs we have, and we have at least a dozen more members coming in than we had before to join us in the fight. We have a great new class of Republican freshmen and a lot of energy they’re bringing to fight socialism. So, if they’re going to try to move a socialist agenda, we’re going to fight it tooth and nail. And they’ll be rejected at the ballot [box] again, and we’ll win the majority back. Our views haven’t changed.
