(CNN) - Democrats unveiled their "Make it in America" agenda Thursday to counter the Republican "Pledge for America," which they say is more of the same.
"Americans deserve to hear a real plan," said Democratic National Committee vice chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
New Jersey Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone said his party is looking to the future with an agenda that would bring back jobs from overseas. They announced "Make it in America" at a press conference at DNC headquarters in Washington.
The announcement came after Republicans revealed their pledge, which Wasserman Schultz said was more of the same "failed" ideas.
"Democrats and President Obama have worked to move the country forward. This plan would take us back to the Bush years," Wasserman Schultz said.
Republicans are trying to repeal Obama's signature health care reform package and Wall Street reform and want to privatize Social Security - the work Democrats have done to overturn some the Republican policies that were implemented when Bush was in office, said Pallone.
Wasserman Schultz said Republicans are still not listening to America and have proposed a plan that's been drafted by lobbyists.
The Democrats did not draft a physical document like the GOP's pledge but reiterated the agenda they've been pushing through congress since they took office. It includes a small business tax credit, balancing the budget, growing the economy, make products in America, tax breaks for the middle class, rebates for seniors under Medicare and protecting and preserving Social Security.
Pallone said Republicans only want to help Wall Street, health insurance and big oil companies and create corporate tax giveaways and tax breaks for the wealthy and not the middle class with their pledge.
"If you have a vision for a future where we create jobs, we control healthcare - we provide healthcare - we help small businesses and we do things that are going to move America forward, then you have to reject the Republican pledge and move forward with Democrats," said Pallone.
