Pledge as Uniter

You’ve heard from Ralph Reed. You’ve heard from the National Right to Life Committee. You’ve heard from the Susan B. Anthony List. And Freedomworks, issues this release: 

We are pleased that the Republicans were so heavily influenced by the message of the grassroots Contract from America that their “Pledge to America”includes many of our Contract’s planks, including the top-voted idea to “Protect the Constitution’”by requiring every bill to cite Constitutional authority, rejection of Cap and Trade, the imposition of meaningful spending limits, repeal of government-run health care, and extension of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts.

We are also pleased that they so admired the Contract’s model of allowing for real citizen input that they created their own website, America Speaking Out, to approximate the same function. This is evidence that Republicans are beginning to listen to the millions of ordinary Americans that are fed up with Washington’s ways.
