Petition Closed

"The Pledge," as it's now known, effectively hands over control of national budgetary decisions to Grover Norquist, a man who said "Bipartisanship is another name for date rape." This pledge currently has one real goal: to protect the wealthiest taxpayers. Historically low tax revenues are not sustainable, and are preventing us from addressing the debt problem. Americans must make sacrifices to ensure the viability of this nation long-term, and we need to begin by asking more of the people who have the most; these are the kinds of sacrifices that the "Greatest Generation" made out of their confidence in and love for this great nation. Join me in petitioning our congressional Republicans to stop answering to Grover Norquist, and start answering to the American people.
