Taking cues from the “Contract with America” that led to the
Republican takeover of Congress in 1994, a group known as Tea Party
Patriots used a website to gather ideas for what they're calling the Contract from America.
Thousands of ideas
the thousands of ideas submitted by more than 100,000 people so far are
“Drill Here, Drill Now,” “Abolish the Department of Education,” and
“Congress shall not exempt themselves.” The group will ask Americans
this month to start winnowing 20 ideas down to a 10- or 12-point
platform. The contract will be unveiled on Tax Day, April 15.
