In a scene reminiscent of the 1994 "Republican Revolution" that turned the U.S. Congress upside down, Democrats on Wednesday set ambitious goals for the nation and urged voters to finally put them back in charge.

Standing outside the Capitol, lawmakers spelled out "six core values" -- on such matters as defense, education, job creation and fiscal responsibility -- that they hope will help them win the Nov. 2 elections and end a decade of Republican control of the House of Representatives.

Flanked by more than 150 members of her caucus, Pelosi said the pamphlet of “Six Core Values” would help Democrats articulate the message that will propel them to the majority for the first time since 1994.
