GOP 'Pledge' Makes Closing Argument To Voters

STERLING, Va. (AP) -- Pushing toward big gains on Nov. 2, House Republicans promised to end a slew of Democratic policies and restore Americans' trust in government as they rolled out a campaign manifesto designed to show they're listening to an angry public and are focused on creating jobs.

"The land of opportunity has become the land of shrinking prosperity ... Our government has failed us," Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California declared. "We will take back our country. We will restore for a better future. This is our pledge to you."

At a hardware store in suburban Washington, senior House Republicans in shirt sleeves showed off the 21-page document they say would guide them should they gain a majority of seats in the midterm balloting five weeks away.

Custom Chopper Signed By Obama To Be Auctioned

WASHINGTON (AP) - A custom-designed motorcycle signed by President Barack Obama will be auctioned in Las Vegas to support military families.

The United States Army Chopper bearing Obama's signature, along with autographs from Vice President Joe Biden and national security adviser James Jones, will be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. on September 23-25 to benefit the Fisher House Foundation.

The foundation builds houses around the country and donates them to the government to provide free housing to military families who have someone being treated at a military or Veterans Affairs hospital. There are 49 Fisher Houses on the grounds of military and VA medical centers.

The motorcycle, built by Hardcore Choppers of Sterling, Va., was designed to recall 1950s European race cars. It features a six-speed transmission and a 150-horsepower engine.
