A second "Contract with America" is long overdue, Republican Rep. Steve Chabot of Ohio said Thursday on Newsmax TV's "America's Forum."

"They've tried to pull some of the bills that we had passed over the last couple of years in the House that [Democratic Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid . . . would never allow to not only be able to come up for a vote, but he wouldn't even let them debate things, which would've got this economy moving again," Chabot said. "That's the agenda that they've been trying to put out front now, but I'd love to have a 'Contract with America II.' It's long overdue."

A member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Chabot said the ideological differences between the parties has been magnified under President Barack Obama's leadership.

"The government can be a big obstacle and that's one of the problems that the Obama administration has had," he said. "They really think that government is the answer and you and I and a lot of other folks think, as Ronald Reagan did, the government is not the solution, it's the problem itself. The sooner we learn that lesson, the better off we as a nation will be."
