If you look at the economic data and think, “You know what we need? A new Contract with America,” your wish is Newt Gingrich’s command. Not only is Newtie going to present a new Contract, he promises this one will be “ten times deeper and more comprehensive” than his original Contract from 1994 that mostly never became law.
He also compares himself to Abraham Lincoln, saying his ideas are “exactly what Lincoln would have campaigned on.” So get ready for some bold policy on slavery and building a transcontinental railroad!
Rick Perry may want to undo the New Deal and take us back to the 1920’s, but why stop there? Newtie’s way-back machine is revved up and headed for the 1850’s.
