Contract on America - JPG
Based on President Ronald Reagan's 1985 State of the Union Address, the Republican Party's "Contract with America" promised specific legislative actions if their party won a majority in the House. The tactic worked as voters went to the polls in record numbers in an off-year election, restoring both a Republican majority and Reagan-era economic policies. Herb Block demonstrated his distaste for the "Contract" by portraying it as a death warrant to President Bill Clinton's administrative policies.
