End Tax Inequality: Support the No Pledge Pledge - Tax-Us!

    1. Petition by

      Tax-Us

Join us by calling on our elected officials in Washington to end tax inequality.

279 congressmen and senators have signed an oath called "The Pledge" to never raise taxes, under any circumstances.  This pledge has caused political gridlock in Washington, prolonged the economic crisis, threatens our credit rating and the stability of our currency.

By signing this petition, regardless of your party affiliation, you are asking your elected representative to reject pledges to unelected officials, to adopt a "No Pledge Pledge" and to negotiate and compromise in the best interests of all Americans.

      I feel it's wrong for any elected offical to make a pledge of any kind that will stop them from doing what's best for the nation as a whole.

      I agree that politicians must be free to think in terms of raising taxes if necessary, and not be held hostage to Grover Norquist.

      Because I want to pay more taxes to kickstart the economy, end income inequities, and increase government expenditures.

      All lawmakers need to be open to whatever solutions allow this country to move forward!

      Adhering to a "No Tax" pledge makes legislating impossible, since negotiation and compromise are the essence of lawmaking.
