"In 1994, Republicans led by Newt Gingrich told Americans that if they elected a Republican Congress for the first time in forty years, the Republicans would enact and honor a platform they called the Contract with America. It was a bold contract. It promised a lot of sweeping reforms. It made very specific commitments. It became the Republicans' ralllying cry.

They ended the contract with the following: "On September 27, 1994, 300 candidates for public office gathered on the steps of the U.S. Capitol and signed their names to document.

Their pledge: 'If we break this contract, throw us out." [Foxes in The Hen House]" (source)
