In 1994, Republicans swept into Congress from its famous “Contract with America.”
Here’s an excerp:Ã‚Â
“….after four decades of one-party control, to bring to the House a new majority that will transform the way Congress works. That historic change would be the end of government that is too big, too intrusive, and too easy with the public’s money. It can be the beginning of a Congress that respects the values and shares the faith of the American family.
Like Lincoln, our first Republican president, we intend to act “with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right. To restore accountability to Congress. To end its cycle of scandal and disgrace. To make us all proud again of the way free people govern themselves.”
The Contract was signed by all 367 Republican candidates for federal office on the steps of the Capitol.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â They pledged:Ã‚Â “If we break this Contract, throw us out.”
Ã‚Â Now the contract called for ten bills to be sent to the House and in that respect, they did adhere to the Contract with America.Ã‚Â But on the pledge to restore accountability to Congress and end the cycle of disgrace and scandal, they haven’t come close.Ã‚Â
Ã‚Â You heard them.Ã‚Â Throw them out.
Time for a change.Ã‚Â Vote Democrat.
And then we might find out when a shredding service truck was spotted at Vice President Cheney’s residence this week.
