Senate Candidates Marco Rubio (R-FL), Dan Coats (R-IN), and Ken Buck (R-CO) Sign the “Contract from America”

The Contract from America Foundation announced today that Senate Candidates Marco Rubio (R-FL), Dan Coats (R-IN), and Ken Buck (R-CO) have joined over 130 Senate and Congressional candidates nationwide by listening to the wishes of their constituents and signing the “Contract from America,” a Main Street grassroots legislative blueprint for 2010 and beyond.

In signing this bottom-up call for economic conservative and good governance reform, Marco Rubio stated: “I’m proud to sign the Contract From America, which is a restatement of the principles and values that have made America exceptional for centuries and that are needed in Washington today.  At a time when Washington is spending money that we don’t even have to expand government, the Contract From America is a reminder that America deserves leaders who will be a check and balance on the direction this president and Congress are pursuing.”

Ken Buck further noted: “This contract reflects my conservative values and record.  I’m proud to stand-up with grassroots Americans as we fight the Washington establishment.”

The Contract from America is not a list handed down from on high by old-bull politicians, but one handed up from the true grassroots in this country. After garnering nearly half a million votes in less than two months, the Contract from America is a blueprint that will serve notice to public officials about what the people want for their future.

Ryan Hecker, one of the organizers of the Contract from America, elaborated: “These candidates, by signing the Contract from America, have shown themselves to be true champions of Main Street values.  They have illustrated that, if elected, they will listen to their constituents and be grassroots conservative leaders in the Senate.”

When voting was completed, the top ten planks in the Contract from America were: (1) Protect the Constitution; (2) Reject Cap and Trade; (3) Demand a Balanced Budget; (4) Enact Fundamental Tax Reform; (5) Restore Fiscal Responsibility and Constitutionally Limited Government in Washington; (6) End Runaway Government Spending; (7) Defund, Repeal, and Replace Government-run Health Care; (8) Pass an ‘All-of-the-Above” Energy Policy; (9) Stop the Pork; and (10) Stop the Tax Hikes.

More information about the candidates who have signed this Main Street Agenda is available at the Contract from America’s website, contract.thelibertylab.com.

    Add Term Limits for every member of Congress. Two terms Senate, 4 terms House. Then lets see how many REAL Americans are in the pack.

    I really am pleased by this Contract but have one comment, intended constructively.

    That HealthBill is a blueprint for the destruction of our country. It MUST be stopped. I’m troubled to see it listed 7th. That Obomination must be Repealed. I have always resisted the application of litmus tests but this one issue is SO destructive as to merit that level of priority and alarm.

    The Contract would be immeasurably strengthened were it known that a signer pledged to do all in his power to wipe that obscenity (unconstitutionally constructed and corruptly enacted) off the books forever and ever.

    Thank you.

    It’s about time our leaders and people who are about to lead this Great Country of ours are paying attention to the real needs of our Great Nation.

    Keep Up the Good Fight

    THE “CONTRACT FROM AMERICA” IS THE PREMIUM PRE REQUISTE THAT SETS THE NEW FOUNDATION FOR AMERICA’S CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPALS !
    WE MUST ALSO CONSIDER THE “TERM LIMITS” OF THOSE THAT WE VOTE INTO OFFICE AS WELL AS RE-ESTABLISHING THEIR NOW SET AUTOMATIC PAY RAISES AND RETIREMENT BENEFITS.

    I support the Contract From America. Now let’s stop the liberal nomination to the Supreme Court, Kagan!

  • Diana Berklich

    I think we also need to add a term limit to the Supreme Court. Additionally, since any democrat or republican who runs for president or vice president must first meet with the approval of the Bilderberg, I think the president needs to have a one-term limit!
