OK, this is sort of like a Contract With America. Shouldn't these principles be givens? They roll out these vague ideas ("Our veterans have earned our respect and gratitude...") There are no commitments and no calls to actions here. Except perhaps the healthcare and budget items, most Democratic office holders could claim these as their own. BTW, we remember how the GOP did NOT balance budgets when they were in control from 2000 to 2006.
Reince, this is lame.
