-How is the economy doing Tropics?
-What are the unemployment figures?
The Republican Contract With America talks about the fiscal condition of the federal government (which Congress can control), and not about the economy in general (which responds to many other factors besides the actions of Congress). The federal government under the Republicans has incurred record deficits.
-Wasn't there some Democrat who made sexual advances toward an intern and a campaign worker?
Do you mean that Democrat who was later re-elected? In any case, the Contract With America was a Republican idea that Republicans promised to honor. However, they showed no moral leadership in handling the Foley case.
Maybe I didn't look closely enough. Did the Contract With America have a pull date?
