TAXPAYER PROTECTION PLEDGE
The Taxpayer Protection Pledge is considered to be the single-most important step a political candidate can make to demonstrate his or her commitment to the principles of fiscal responsibility. My solemn pledge to "oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes" is now on file with the Americans for Tax Reform headquarters in Washington, D.C. It should be noted that there are no exceptions to the Pledge.
Let me reiterate -- there are no exceptions.
Tax-and-spend politicians often use "emergencies" to justify increasing taxes. In the unfortunate event of a real crises or natural disaster, I believe the legislature should cut spending in other areas instead of initiating a new tax burden which, once enacted, almost never goes away.

Vote NO! on tax increases.
