Republican leadership in Congress wants voters to know exactly what the future of America would like if Democrats take back the House in November and their message is rather grim.

GOP House Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Republican leadership rolled out a new video Tuesday to build off its “Better Off Now” summer and fall messaging effort. The video highlights the successes of Congress over the past two years under GOP leadership and paints the picture of what Democrats would do to dismantle those gains if they win in November.


“The new video from the House Republican Conference, which highlights all that Democrats want to take away, keeps Democrat messaging on defense by reminding the American people of the stark contrast between the Democratic and GOP agendas,” a GOP leadership aide told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Republican leadership rolled out “A Better Way” agenda two years ago to show voters how Republicans planned to attack the challenges facing the nation, like reforming the U.S. tax code and repealing and replacing Obamacare.

“Republicans have kept our promises. People are optimistic again. They can buy a new house; they can start a family; they can expand their businesses. In this booming economy, Americans have hope and confidence again. That’s not the only reason why,” McMorris Rodgers said Tuesday.

Fifty House Republicans are either resigning, retiring or seeking other office in 2018. Roughly 22 House members retire each election cycle, so to say the party is going through a tumultuous period of change is not a misnomer.

Republican leadership in the House remains publicly optimistic about their chances of maintaining the majority in the lower chamber.
