ATR Challenge on Pelosi-Obama-Reid Spending Package: What Happens in Chicago Should Stay in Chicago
In light of recent developments surrounding the now-disgraced ex-governor of the State of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, (who was caught in an attempt to sell President Barack Obama’s U.S. Senate seat) Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) has issued a challenge to supporters of the Pelosi-Obama-Reid government spending package promoted under the guise of “stimulus.”
I, __________________________, commit to the taxpayers of the (___________________ district of the) State of _______________________, that I will neither accept any political contributions from a recipient of funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 nor seek or accept employment with such a recipient. The same commitment shall apply to members of my family and members of my staff.
Americans for Tax Reform will inform constituents and the media about which Members of Congress sign and return the above commitment to ATR, and will post relevant information on the Internet at www.atr.org.
