According to a report from The Daily Caller, Texas Rep. Chip Roy is readying a policy pledge to put America First; Roy says his plan will cause an immediate change in Washington, D.C.

The three main steps to Roy’s plan include: “Freeze Spending,” “Restore Government That Works For Us by Withholding Funding Until it Does,” and “Republicans Should Pass an Agenda to Stand Up for America.”

“I pledge to the 21st Congressional District of Texas to Stand Up for America by fighting to restore common sense and responsible spending, freedom through government based upon the consent of the governed not big corporate crony interests, and a sovereign nation secure from both the tyranny of the authoritarian state and the vulnerability created by open borders and a woke, over-extended military,” the pledge begins.

From The Daily Caller:

The first step of Roy’s plan is to freeze spending. Under his first step, Roy says Republicans should not agree to spend one more dollar to advance the Democrats’ agenda. Roy said if Republicans take back the House in November, the next Congress must start with frozen spending levels.

The second step of Roy’s plan aims to restore a government that works for Americans by withholding funding until citizens are fully protected from from cartels, fentanyl and crime, and forcing the Department of Human Services (DHS) to secure the border. Roy’s plan also aims to curbs the power of the IRS, FBI, NIH, CDC and FDA, and calls for an end to all vaccine mandates and the elimination of “Emergency” powers.

Roy’s final step is that Republicans should pass an agenda to stand up for America.

The Texas Republican thinks in order to stand up for America, Congress must combat inflation with “responsible, balanced spending,” and says he wants to stop blank checks from going to the bureaucrats killing small businesses through regulation. Roy also said aims to restore America’s energy independence in order to lower gas prices and the cost of electricity.

The congressman’s press office shared the announcement on Twitter.

“I’ve been meeting with thousands of constituents over August all begging for the GOP to fight for them; and after outlining my three-step plan to ‘Stand Up for America’ …This is it & the most important piece of which is to use the power of the purse to demand immediate change”
