I actually got a phone call asking me to listen to this NEW CONTRACT WITH AMERICA, so I did listen to Mr Gingrich repeat the same exact nonsense that has been the republican battle cry since 1994. Cut taxes for the rich, don't worry about health care we already have the best in the world, get more serious about "going after terrorist" - or more wars, create a jobs program from the tax cuts...and he is for real. That not one word works in the real world leaves him undaunted because one thing the republicans are dependable for - they just keep recycling people and ideas whether they work or not. Next proposal - absorb the Tea Party, just bring those folks into the fold, cause the third party idea just doesn't work. Here we go again. Same song second verse - same as the first.

I think Newt thinks he's Knute (still trying to win one for the Gipper)...

As to his personal values; let's just say John Edwards was just expanding on Newt's playbook ...

HE'S BACK! Newt both cracks me up and gives me the creeps! One of the major points in his 'Contract' is for the Republicans to be an "alternative party not an opposition party". He claims that In the 90's that's how they tried to attract the 3rd party Perot voters, by being "relentlessly positive". (CHUCKLE, CHUCKLE.) Well Newt has already broken his own 'Contract' with every appearance he's made on Fox News and elsewhere. He has criticized Obama and the Democrats with all the usual political gusto mustered by someone resorting to desperate attempts to keep his name in the news (the "Palin Syndrome"). However, everytime I see or read about him, I recall what happened when he was in office, his lack of ethics and "family values" AND incidents like that book deal with Rupert Murdoch. I consider his 'Contract' null and void.

With all due respect the so called "Contract With America" was anything but a "massive failure." Much of the proposed acts were actually turned into bills and passed by both the House and Senate and signed into law by President Clinton. Probably the most famous "failure" was the one that proposed a Constitutional Amendment to impose 12-year term limits on both the House and Senate. While this one passed by a majority it was not the 2/3's required. This is still something we desperately need in my opinion.
In fact after reading the most important proposed acts of the CWA I have a hard time disagreeing with any of them. The frankly make a lot of sense to me.
1. Fiscal responsibility act. This proposed a constitutional amendment that would require a balanced budget, unless sanctioned by a 3/5 vote in both Houses of Congress. The bill to introduce this amendment to the states was passed by the US House 279-152 but rejected by the US Senate.
2. Taking back our streets act. These proposed bills included an anti-crime package including stronger truth-in-sentencing "good faith" exclusionary rule exemptions (passed), death penalty provisions (passed), funding prison construction (passed), and additional law enforcement (passed).
3. Personal responsibility act. These bills included an act to cut spending for welfare programs by means of discouraging illegitimacy and teen pregnancy. This would be achieved by prohibiting welfare to mothers less than 18 years of age, denying increased AFDC for additional children while on welfare, and enacting a two-years-and-out provision with work requirements to promote individual responsibility. Also included were provisions giving food vouchers to unwed mothers under 18 in lieu of cash AFDC benefits, denying cash AFDC benefits for additional children to people on AFDC, requiring recipients to participate in work programs after 2 years on AFDC, complete termination of AFDC payments after five years, and suspending driver and professional licenses of people who fail to pay child support. This passed both the House and Senate and was famously signed by President Clinton in 1995.
4. The American Dream Restoration Act. This bill created a $500-per-child tax credit, began repeal of the marriage tax penalty, and expanded IRA accounts to provide middle class tax relief. This too passed in 1995.
5. The National Security Restoration Act. This was an act to prevent U.S. troops from serving under United Nations command unless the President determines its necessity for the purposes of national security, to cut US payments for UN peacekeeping operations, and to help establish guidelines for the voluntary integration of former Warsaw Pact nations into NATO. Passed in 1995.
6. The Common Sense Legal Reform Act. Bills to institute "Loser pays" laws, limits on punitive damages and reform of product liability laws to prevent frivolous litigation. All passed in 1995.
7. The Citizen Legislature Act. A proposed amendment to the Constitution that would have imposed 12-year term limits on members of the US Congress (i.e. six terms for Representatives, two terms for Senators). Voted for by a majority of the US House 227-204 but introducing a constitutional amendment requires a two-thirds majority, not a simple majority.

Now which of these do you not agree with????

Then let us look very closely at that celebrated contract of DC talk and no action. PLEASE, Mark use logic and not emotion you have a better mind then that.

Who bothers to give this Crud space in the media. His first wife put him through college. Later when he was the Rep. House Whip he carried on a long term affair with a staff member. When his wife was laying in a hospital he tried to get her to sign a divorce agreement totally favorable to himself, & reportedly refused to pay child support. He later married & during this second marriage reportedly carried on an 8 year affair with another women and then had the gall to call Clinton immoral over the Lewinsky affair. He is a worthless piece of ---- & should be thrown out of town - for Good. Newt - Go with God, but God darn it - GO.

I have an email friend whose constant refrain is the insane trickle down theory that Reagan espoused, that failed then and continues to fail for everyone EXCEPT the very rich whose taxes get cut. If you cut the taxes of the little man he may have enough to spend. The rich man won't spend it, he won't invest it, he will leave it in his bank account.
Newt's contract with American is, in reality, a CONTRACT ON AMERICA.

There is but ONE tax system that makes sense for America and it taxes equally and puts no undue burden on the poor. In fact most of us will get a monthly "pre-bate" check to help off set the tax burden and everyone - the VERY rich and the black markets will pay taxes without the IRS. If you don't know what I am talking about then please take some time and Learn about the FAIR TAX. It will balance our budget, pay off China, allow for jobs in America, pay for Social Security and Medicare for all and still leave excess money. Please do yourself a favor go to the site and find out how this one change can and will save our country.

Sorry, bur for me, Newt just represents all of the dinosaurs who should be extinct but somehow seem to continue to stay alive in the Republican party. These old white men should be put out to pasture and quit impeding progress by sitting in the rows and aisle of Congress and the Senate and just saying NO! We need people from both parties to take charge and lead this country on a sustainable economic recovery, a workable climate change bill and it's enforcement, and to stop political agendas from overturning good science because the 'People do not 'believe' science, merely their superstitions!n'

"Mark I disagree with the fact that none of these ideas did more then add a touch of color and conversation to elections. Do you really believe the republicans behave as fiscally responsible?"
No. I am not a Republican. I am a Libertarian. Still I believe in fiscal responsibility including balanced budgets, personal responsibility including the restrictions on welfare that were enacted, I am intolerant of crime and want violent criminals severely punished, and strongly support term limits for elected officials. The fact that these ideals were not all enacted or followed thru on by subsequent congresses and administrations does not diminish by belief in them. Nor does it diminish my core belief that government is inherently inefficient and corrupt and generally the less of it the better.
And I agree with you on the fair tax.
But I did not ask you if the CWA only served to color the election. While that may have been true based on the poor execution of both the congress and the White House, what I asked was which of the seven proposals from the CWA I listed do you disagree with?

Listen to him say that he thought S. Palin was intelligent, etc. My gosh....Enough said.

Mark as I think you and most know by now. "I'm a walking contradiction." I am a fiscal conservative, and very liberal when it comes to the civil rights granted by the constitution. I do believe we have term limits if the voters would use their ability to vote "NO" of course we know they vote by name recognition. I too, believe in personal responsibility, in Congress and the White House as well as for every day citizens. I do not believe that any American should die of starvation or from lack of money for health care. I want a very clear line between the church - any and all churches and the government. Should we have real enemies - then take them out - otherwise I am a pacifist. I repeat - a walking contradiction. (with nods and thanks to Kris Kristofferson) Hope that cleared things up a little.

I don't like Newt Gringrich now or have ever liked or respected him in the past. I don't want to see the Republicans take total control as they once did in the past; as they did not do anything for hardworking middle class people. However, I am not happy with the out-of-control spending at present with the democrats. I certainly have little respect for Nancy Pelosi and Reid making bad deals with bribes to pass legislation either.

As calmly and politely as I may I would like to begin by saying,"BITE ME! BITE ME! BITE ME!"!! This is just like the last one NOT A CONTRACT WITH AMERICA BUT A CONTRACT ON AMERICA, unless you happen to be in the 2% of the population that has 90+% of the wealth and pays less than 7% in taxes, a profiteering corporation that prefers human death and suffering to a lower profit margin or a emember of the Christian Taliban of America that seeks a theo-fascist America with the Constitution and American laws based on their soon to be redited Bible. The Repugnicans are now, always have been andalways will be the greatest defict growers and spenders in American history! They are hypocrits and liars, who say one thing and do the other so long as if suits their Corporate and Religious masters, defend marriage and commit adultery at will, yes dems have their adulteres too but they do not preach the absolute sanctitiy of marriage, harp about personal responsibilty yet never take any for their actions, scream for financial reponsibility, deficit reduction,no more pork, no more ear marks and then are the first to do anything and everything that is the exact opposite. And another thing, Kit you mentioned being a walking contradiction, well sorry to tell you this but that is what happens when 1)you are not an exteremist, 2)you have a brain and use it to do something other than what others want you to do, like think, 3) common sense and pragmatism always cause contradictions because one fanatic answer to everything never produces good working results, 4)compassion and a realization that people are more important than money always changes what is or is not an acceptable solution to any problem, 5)when you realize that ethics, doing what you know to be right, treating every one as you would be treated, always trumps morals, doing what a religion run by a bunch of fanatics tells you to do; in short dear you arejust going to have to live with what seems contradictory because that is reality, one size and one answer does not fit all! And thanks for the post!

Well, NE L as Tom and I attempted to show you - in dollars the top 10% do pay more - in percentile the rest of us carry the burden. By the graphs a person making 100,000+ should be paying 9=10% (before deductions) in taxes which will of course be more in dollars then the 35% paid by someone making 30-40,000. We NEED a tax reformation and we need it yesterday. If you do not support the FAIR TAX then ask yourself why? When once again April 15 will come around and once again you will dole out hard earned money directly from your income whether through withholding or by quarterly payments. Think smart - there is a MUCH BETTER WAY. And just consider the huge amount of taxes not paid by the "black market" - should they not be paying as well? Your income should be your own and your own business - keep it all - support the FAIR TAX.

Honestly Local, when it comes to "getting things done" I don't see a tinkers damn between the two parties. They procrastinate and argue and completely over complicate each and every bill put before them. They had a simple job of regulation of the massive and cheating credit card industry, and instead did VERY little to correct the real problems and the republicans included a stupid additional amendment to distract everyone from the job at hand by talking about guns in a credit card reform. Good job at distraction - stupid to intentionally harm the average American in this way. Though Americans do overuse credit this is the lack of substance that was what the quaternary was build on - a credit industry.

I agree Kit we do need the fair tax. We (my husband and I) don't really pay that much in taxes because we don't make all that much. But before my husband and I were married he payed an outrageous amount because he was single and worked a LOT of overtime. He was single for 45yrs so he has paid more than his fair share.

What I disagree with is the whole "soak the rich" attitude. I don't like the mentality of so many who demonize success. But, I do think EVERYONE should pay thier fair share.

 

Kit B (276)
Monday March 15, 2010, 9:21 am
I do agree, the attitude that only the wealthy should be paying taxes is wrong, but by the percentile that Obama wants to increase the tax (3% for over $250,000) will only bring them back to the amount they paid in the 90's under Clinton. Bush did no favors for the average tax payer in America but he went too far in giving tax breaks for the rich. I don't mind paying extra taxes, but I do mind that our tax system is both illegal and unfair. Two Supreme Courts have found our system to be illegal or unconstitutional and yet the government continues on taxing people dry. If you have not seen "America: Freedom to Fascism" then I do recommend it for anyone who wants the whole true story of taxing Americans. It's available on youtube.

Sorry Kit B but people like Newt Gingrich will never read these comments because they are SO arrogant & self centered believing that they are God's Gift to the World. They jump up on their own shoulders and march off to the beat of the band when the truth of the matter is they have to chin themselves to make it over a door jam. And this applies to KNOW Nothing Palin, Beck, Limbaugh, Bachmann, etc.
They got so far due solely to the failure of the people to properly educate themselves about the true qqualifications of candidates for public office and instead rely on Fox (it isn't) News for information. You get what you pay or vote for.

I see these posts and have to wonder why labels have to be used. If one is going to use a label, try AMERICAN for a change. And if you are indeed an American I suggest you do two things, Get a copy of the constitution, read it, and only vote for candidates you think will adhere to it. Second the only true bipartisan issue out there is the FairTax. Over the past few years Kit and I haven't agreed on everything, but we sure as hell know how important passage of the FairTax is to survival of this Republic.

Mr. Gingrich has already shown his true colors. Like many here, I too would support the Fair Tax.
As far as cutting our operating budget, I would also consider eliminating many of the lifetime 'perks' that our elected officials enjoy at the taxpayers expense...including term limits I have often thought that if our elected officials had to contribute to Social Security rather than the lifetime retirement plans they have courtesy of the US taxpayer, that system would be repaired, running efficiently and funded well into the future or at least more stable than it is now.

A number of right wingers/tea baggershave been running around spreading the same lies they learned from Fox News (Glenn Beck), Sarah Palin, Limbaugh and even Republican politicians. Well, the weather on the right is changing. You folks better get the new instruction booklet...and it comes directly from Fox itself...

Fox News distancing themselves from Tea Party lies

Tea Party Mainstream Disavows Extremist Views
Fox News is now claiming Obama is NOT a socialist or communist, NOT a muslim, does NOT want to keep Americans unemployed, he's not a Leninist or Stalinist, he IS an American citizen, and there are NO death panels and on and on and on...ad nauseum.

Fox is worried they will be liable for these lies and are distancing themselves from liability during the elections, and possible lawsuits. Worse, these lies will hurt them during elections.

What's most interesting is many of these same lies have been spouted -- repeatedly -- right here in this thread and all over Care2.

Lies have a tendency to come back and haunt you...


10 Lessons for Tea Baggers:

1. President Obama Cut Your Taxes
2. The Stimulus is Working
3. First Ronald Reagan Tripled the National Debt...
4. ...Then George W. Bush Doubled It Again
5. Republican States Have the Worst Health Care
6. Medicare is a Government Program

Anyone else remember the Contract Newt spouted in the middle 80's and what about when he wanted to deny the little people the right to divorce, yet most of the political talking heads including Reagan and Newt were on their 2nd or 3rd marriage.

Wonder what drugs he's doing now?
