Many politicos and pundits are convinced that Republicans are in a prime position to regain a majority on Capitol Hill after next year’s midterm elections.
According to Breitbart, U.S. Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) is clearly among the most bullish on the idea, recently predicting that a GOP “wave” will sweep across the lower chamber of Congress.
“A consensus conservative agenda”
He revealed his forecast during a recent interview with the conservative news outlet during which he pointed to former President Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda and continued engagement in the upcoming elections as a boon to his party’s chances.
Banks is a member of the House Republican Study Committee who reportedly spoke to Trump extensively about using the ex-president’s considerable partisan influence to propel Republican candidates to victory.
The Indiana Republican told Breitbart that the committee is currently constructing “a consensus conservative agenda that Republicans can rally around to help us win back the majority, and then an agenda that we can enact when we do.”
He went on to say that GOP leaders have determined “that the Trump agenda is the winning agenda” not only to set the stage for victory next year but to reclaim the White House two years later.
“The Republican Party is the party of the working class because of the agenda that Donald Trump ran on and fought for four years,” Banks said. “He won over millions of working-class voters who didn’t identify themselves as Republicans before, who are now in the Republican Party.”
“Joe Biden’s hidden tax”
He stressed that it will be important for the GOP to remain focused on working-class, blue-collar America in much the same way that Trump did while he was in office.
According to the congressman, the far-left agenda being pushed by Democrats could represent another benefit for his own party.
Pointing to hot-button cultural issues that remain at the forefront of the progressive platform, he said most Americans are more focused on what leaders will do to grow the economy, keep taxes low, and protect citizens.
“The critical race theory in your face all day, every day coming from the media, from the left, infiltrating all of our institutions … the working class, families are seeing Joe Biden’s hidden tax through inflation every time they go to the grocery stores and they fill up [at] the gas pumps,” he declared.
Banks went on to reassure Trump supporters that the former president is ready to re-enter the political fray, insisting: “He feels like he has a duty to get back out and hold on, hold the rallies, engage with the American people and weigh in on how disastrous the Biden-Pelosi agenda is for our country. So I think we’re going to be seeing a lot more of him.”
