9th item promised in the Republican Contract with America

The Republicans promised to:

"Pass a balanced/tax limitation amendment and a legislative line-item veto to restore fiscal responsibility to an out-of-control Congress, requiring them to live under the same budget constraints as families and businesses."

The Republicans have failed on this one so badly that I left the Republican Party over it.

The Republicans did pass the "line-item veto;" however, The Supreme Court determined that it was unconstitutional.

The Congress is currently FAR more out of control on spending issues then the earlier Congresses they replaced.

This is the most frustrating failure of The Republican Contract with America. They promised fiscal responsibility, and now they spend more then The Democrats were spending. Not only have they failed on this issue; they have made this problem significantly worse.

Who would have ever thought that The Democrats were MORE fiscally conservative then the Republicans of today?
