On NBC’s Meet the Press, Sen. Graham said essentially the same thing as McCain.

“I think what we have to do is to come up with a uniting agenda, sort of a Contract with America,” he said, referring to the plan put forth by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich that helped win the GOP big gains and control of the House in 1994. “Going forward, [we need to] show the American people that the Republican Party can govern.”

There’s actually something like the 1994 “Contract” out there.

Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, senior Republican on the House Budget Committee, has laid out a 99-page “Roadmap for America’s Future.”

Among other things, it would reduce personal income taxes, end the corporate income tax and the estate tax, and privatize some of Social Security.

Critics say it “calls for radical policy changes that would result in a massive transfer of resources from the broad majority of Americans to the nation’s wealthiest individuals.”
