In 1995, Republicans took over both houses of Congress for the first time in 40 years, promising a new policy agenda for the nation and no more "politics as usual" in our nation's capital. How have the promises and peformance of the Republican Revolution played out over the last decade? Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, architect of the Contract with America assessed the past 10 years in Congress from the perspective of revoutionary ideals and governing realities, and former Democratic Caucus Chairman Vic Fazio offered a minority party perspective on the decade.
