2. Your list is NOT the right ones. You've mixed in compromises and broken ones in there.


You have to scroll the WHOLE front page to see all of the ones that are promises kept.

And also - there is a total of 226 'kept promises just because the ones listed today 'might not' be as important as some of the others in the past does not mean that they are not important.

4. No. What I was talking about up in my OP was the SIX 'promises KEPT' that are on the 'front page'

p.s. The other DUer was listing some that were not 'promises kept' and I mentioned it because I didn't want anyone getting confused
