In 1994 the Republicans running for House and Senate seats had a grand plan for victory: The Contract with America.
The Contract had several schemes that a Republican majority was going to accomplish within 100 days. Many of the ideas were taken from a speech given by President Reagan during the 1980s.
One of the biggest points in the Contract was the Citizen Legislature Act. The Citizen Legislature Act, if passed, would have installed an amendment to the Constitution of the United States creating term limits (6 terms for the House of Representatives, 2 terms for the Senate).
This is important because many of those Republicans that signed and supported the Contract with America are coming up for reelection into their seventh term in the House or third term in the Senate.
The most important people that signed the Contract with America and are seeking to break that contract are Congressman Walter B. Jones, Jr. (NC-3) and Congresswoman Sue Myrick (NC-9).
If you’re in any those Districts do not vote for these people! They made promises and now they want to break them.
