Item 4 in The Republican Contract with America

Item 4 in The Republican Contract with America is also a simple one to grade.

"Limit the terms of all committee chairs."

The Republican Congress passed internal rule change 355-74 on 1/4/95. This internal rule does make some rules that limit the number of years a Congressman can chair a committee. This internal rule change is pretty liberal; however, I have to say The Repubicans fulfilled this promise.

Contract Score:
Promises Kept 2
Promises Broken 2

I agree. It is the job of the committee chair to be training by example other people on the committee so they can step forward when the chair's term is up. Indefinite power is too corrupting.
