Debicella on House GOP’s new “Pledge for America”: yes & maybe?

I like it, but don’t expect me to vote for it. At least not all of it. That seems to be the message from state Sen. Dan Debicella, the Republican hoping to oust U.S. Rep Jim Himes, D-4th District, in response to the new agenda outlined by House Republican leaders today.

The GOP’s “Pledge to America” vows that, if Republicans win control of the House, they will repeal the health care law,  cut government spending (except when it comes to defense), and crack down on illegal immigration, among other things.

Debicella said he “lauded” the new proposals, but would “remain independent” of any national platform. He offered no specifics about which elements of the 48-page document that he would endorse or reject.
