Moore touts new ‘Commitment to America’ document

WASHINGTON D.C. — In late September, House Republicans released their ‘Commitment to America’, a platform-type document that is often released ahead of mid-term elections from major political parties.

It’s a type of reminder of where they stand on various issues, and their plans on how to address issues on voter’s minds.

On a recent KVNU For the People program, First District Congressman Blake Moore talked about the release.

“The Commitment to America, I really hope folks will read it, I really hope folks will dig into it and look at what it’s trying to communicate. Because Republicans get criticized a lot…’well, you don’t have a plan. You just oppose this’ or ‘you don’t have a plan for X,Y,Z, you’re just always like a no vote on stuff like that,’” he explained.

Moore said the document has four key parts to it that could be considered the pillars of the framework.

“The economy that is strong, a nation’s that safe, a future that’s built on freedom and a government that’s accountable. It’s great material, you can go in and see what some of the objectives are. You dig a layer deeper, and it’s not necessarily tied to the Commitment to America.

“But like for the work that I’ve done, on the Energy, Climate and Conservation taskforce, we have specific bills in place that can go towards assuring the environmental review process is done. And once that’s done, get the permitting and the leasing going.”

Moore said that Americans have gone through a lot in the last 18 months with inflation and high gas prices.

He said if everyone was dramatically improving in reducing emissions because of this, there might be an angle for people to say that this is a good thing, but that is not even being done.
