U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis released a statement following the House Republicans unveiling of the Pledge to America, which is a new governing agenda with solutions that will create jobs, cut spending and reform Washington.

The Pledge to America was developed to offer concrete solutions that can be implemented immediately to tackle the issues that are most important to the nation, including job creation, spending restraint, national security, health care and reform to Congress itself.

"This is Like Deja Vu All Over Again"

The above subject line is a quote from baseball legend Yogi Berra and it is so very applicable to Rep. Lummis' anouncement of the Pledge to America. Does anybody remember the Contract with America which was released 6 weeks before the 1994 mid-term elections? It contained such solemn promises as job creation, raising worker wages, reduction of taxes, reduction of illegimate and teen births by cutting welfare programs, elimination of frivilous lawsuits, moratorium on new federal regulations, and my personal favorite, term limits for members of congress. So here we are at 6 weeks before the 2010 elections and they come pushing out a retread of the same thing. Are our politicians really so arrogant that they believe the American public too stupid to recognize recycled propaganda? Sadly, the answer appears to be yes.
