House Republicans say they want your input in developing a new “American agenda.”

 

The GOP launched the

America Speaking Out website saying this “is your opportunity to change the way Congress works by proposing ideas for a new policy agenda.”

 

Here is the video introducing the new site. 

 

Here’s how the GOP describes the site.

 

This site was developed by House Republicans as part of an official effort to increase the dialogue between Americans and their Congress. Here, Americans are provided a new platform to share their priorities and ideas for a national policy agenda. As Republicans, we are committed to our principles of limited, more accountable government; economic freedom; lower taxes; fiscal responsibility; protecting life, American values, and the Constitution; and providing for strong national security.

This is an open forum, however, where all Americans are welcome to respectfully offer their opinions, regardless of party affiliation and whether we endorse them or not. It is our hope the active engagement of the American people will produce a robust debate that will aid in the construction of a new American agenda.

 

 

5th District Congressman Rogers released the following statement on his website.

Rogers Announces America Speaking Out


Today, U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-05) released the following statement upon the introduction of America Speaking Out, an effort by House Republicans to engage the American people in the process of building a new policy agenda for America. Through America Speaking Out, the American people will be given a voice in setting the priorities for a national agenda. This initiative takes place online at the new and interactive
www.AmericaSpeakingOut.com.


“While Americans have been speaking out, Washington just hasn’t been listening. Liberals in charge of Congress have pursued a partisan agenda, rather than addressing the concerns of the American people. Whether it’s been forcing a government takeover of health care, passing a National Energy Tax, piling up record deficits, or ignoring our nation’s jobs crisis, the actions of this Congress have been contrary to the will of the American people. Citizens everywhere are ready for a new agenda in Washington, and the nation deserves a Congress that acts to implement the priorities of the people.


“House Republicans plan to offer the nation a new set of policy solutions, but rather than handing an agenda down from Washington, we want to include the American people in building it. We have offered our own ideas when we disagreed with the Democrat majority, and we are committed to our principles of a smaller, more accountable government that keeps freedom in the hands of the people. However, we believe that leadership requires the humility to listen to the American people and a recognition that any new agenda should start with them. So to show that the voices of the American people can still make a difference in Washington, we are introducing America Speaking Out and giving citizens a new opportunity to lend their ideas to the creation of a new national policy agenda.


“We are looking for all Americans, regardless of party affiliation, to be a part of this unprecedented dialogue of ideas. Throughout the summer we will be engaging the American people to solicit their priorities and discuss how our principles can be applied to America’s challenges. Through America Speaking Out, the people will have a voice in Washington, as well as a group ready to act on their behalf. I hope the working families, seniors, students, miners, and veterans who proudly make up the 5th Congressional District of Kentucky will let their voices be heard and help America get back on track.”
