U.S. Senate Candidate Kevin Coughlin Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge


Posted by Joshua Culling on Wednesday, April 20th, 2011, 1:26 PM PERMALINK


Former State Senator Kevin Coughlin has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge in his race for Ohio’s U.S. Senate seat. The Pledge, sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), commits signers to “oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses … and oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates."

ATR has offered the Pledge to all candidates for federal office since 1987. To date, 41 U.S. Senators and 236 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed the Pledge. Additionally, thirteen governors and over 1,200 state legislators have signed the Pledge.

“I want to congratulate Mr. Coughlin for taking the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. The American people clearly showed their displeasure in November with the tax-and-spend policies coming from Washington. They want real solutions that create jobs and cut government spending,” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR.

“By signing the Pledge, Kevin Coughlin demonstrates that he understands the problems of hard-working taxpayers nationwide, but especially the taxpayers of Ohio,” Norquist continued.

“I challenge all candidates for federal office to make the same commitment to taxpayers by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge today.”
