5th item in Republican Contract with America

This 5th item in the Contract is simple, it states:

"Ban the casting of proxy votes in committee."

To make a long story short, this was done by The Republicans. They passed this rule in early 1995, and it still stands today. This makes it so Congressman have to attend Committee meetings in order to vote. It is a good rule...

Contract Score:
Promises Kept 3
Promises Broken 2

This makes sense. If they don't have time to attend the meeting, too bad. They should be on fewer committees. If they can't be there to hear debate they aren't qualified to vote!

Incredible blog. I admired your site and I will be
back once again to view it! I use much of my spare
time searching for blogs like yours.
It may look like it was hard work, but my equity fixed home loan rate rate blog was simple.
