The new “Contract” is money based, not citizens based.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is calling for an overhaul of the way Americans pay taxes, buy health care and contribute to the Social Security system. Gingrich mapped out the 10-point plan, which he's calling The 21st Century Contract with America … Key elements include:1. repealing President Barack Obama's health care plan
2. giving taxpayers the option of paying a flat tax and
3. allowing young people to opt out of Social Security.
Can you imagine the instant hit Social Security would take? It would inflict a fatal blow to the program, but slowly? It would also recreate another crisis and its return, but at a massive human cost.
He also called for curtailing the power of the courts. "There is no judicial supremacy," Gingrich said. "We are going to have a big, big fight about the role of the judicial branch.
Three equal branches, gone? What Gingrich might have been talking about; should the Supreme Court be able to overturn law and have that power over the legislative branch. The branches are equal aren’t they?
