Outlaw the Grover Norquist anti-tax pledge

    1. Robert McGee
    2. Petition by

      Robert McGee

      York, SC

The tax pledge from the organization known as Americans for Tax Reform ran by Grover Norquist has been a virus in the American politics on both the left and the right. Those who sign the pledge are sworn never to increase taxes on anyone, not even America's richest people such as the Koch Brothers, Donald Trump, and Mitt Romney. They would rather lower taxes on the rich and bring us into another recession.

If congress was to vote to outlaw any and all signed contracts, signed agreements with lobbyist that are made to dictate how are elected officials vote on legislation is outlawed, it would make many seats in congress automatically become vacant and give lobbyist less power over us. This is something that shouldn’t even be apart of politics because it violates the oath of office and it’s the exactly the same as either giving out or excepting bribes.

You need to know what happens when federal spending goes down, state spending would have to go up and it leads to cuts in spending that force states to lay off teachers, police officers, firefighters, and other state and federal government workers. No tax pledge + no power to lobbyist + taxing the rich + more money in the treasury = a stronger economy

We sign this petition so that all Americans can be tax fairly and that there is shared sacrifice, and put an end to legal briberay.

      I feel our congress no longer represents its constituents. The will of the people has been negated by Grover's government within a government. This needs to end. It needs to be seen as illegal and unconstitutional.

      It's already outlawed, it's called subverion and treason. Prosecute them but at least vote them out.

      As John Boehner said himself: "If they won't work, throw the bums out" That means Boehner and everyone else who has signed a pledge to Norquist and committed treason. Don't give them a chance to withdraw, They are now known traitors so vote them out.

      Also go to youtube and hear Grover Norquists agenda in his own words: "grover norquist working digits"

      Because GOPs in Congress should NOT be threatened with losing their job if they do not vote the way ANY lobbyist tells them to vote. Norquist also founded the Islamic Free Market Institute with $$$ from convicted terrorists. Really look it up! More info at http://prosperity4allofus.com/

      Any legislator who signs such a pledge is violating their oath of office. (Even with the few typos this is an important petition.)

      Any representative that signed this HAS TO BE REMOVED BECAUSE THIS IS A TOTAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST. They cannot be looking out for the interests of their constituants AND be loyal to their party leaders that want to cheat Americans. If they signed this, they KISSED TRUMPS RING. Liars anf Cheaters they are. They did this at the expense of us Americans. Time to get rid of all on the list. Please vote on a non-Romney owned voting machine.
