As things currently stand, the Republican Party has a sure chance of taking back the House of Representatives next November. If the GOP succeeds in this endeavor, then the Biden administration will no longer have a blank check regarding policy. Likewise, Democrats in Congress won’t be able to brag about not needing to work with their Republican colleagues.
Winning some elections, especially enough to shift the current power monopoly in Congress, is bound to strengthen the GOP. This is why House Republicans have already put out a plan to get themselves into power and send Nancy Pelosi packing from the House Speaker position, Breitbart News reports.
Turning the House Majority Back Over to Republicans
Yesterday, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) explained that the GOP is merely five seats short of regaining the House majority. Hence, the plan for Republicans to take the House back involves competing with Democrats in 47 different districts.

The NRCC’s memo also notes that despite projections for House Republicans in 2020, they actually won a record number of seats, without suffering any losses. This is a pattern that the GOP aims to build upon during next year’s midterm elections.
After calling out Democrats’ “socialist agenda,” the GOP congressional committee then proceeded in their memo to list their “offensive targets.” These targets include the following: Redistricting Watch, Underperforming Democrats, and Battleground.
Restoring Balance in Government
A House controlled by the Republican Party would restore balance in government. It would leave Democrats controlling one congressional chamber, while Republicans have the other. A balanced government would also be more indicative of the American people, rather than one side just bulldozing its way through the other.

Right now, Democrats in Congress are more focused on impeachment than on assisting the American people. Republicans have pointed this out as well; the GOP ultimately notes that the time Democrats are spending on putting a former president on trial could be used to pass coronavirus relief, get schools reopened, etc.
Ultimately, if Republicans succeed in their plan to regain the House, the Biden administration and left-wing lawmakers will finally have some checks-and-balances to deal with.
