Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) commends Taxpayer Protection Pledge signers in Maryland for their recent Primary victories.  

By signing the Pledge, these candidates have made a written commitment to taxpayers to oppose and vote against any and all income tax increases if elected to Congress.  

The following Primary winners signed the Pledge: 

Americans for Tax Reform created the Taxpayer Protection Pledge in 1985 to solidify candidates’ commitments to taxpayers. President Reagan urged all candidates to sign the Pledge. He campaigned for and praised candidates who signed the Pledge. Today, over 1,400 elected officials and candidates on the federal and state levels are Taxpayer Protection Pledge signers. 

There are currently 191 Pledge signers in the U.S. House and 42 Pledge signers in the U.S. Senate. 85% of Congressional Republicans have signed the Pledge and put their commitment to oppose tax increases into writing, contrasting with the ZERO congressional Democrats who have made this commitment.  

“The Taxpayer Protection Pledge stands as a barrier against tax hikes and makes continued pro-growth tax reform possible. We are ecstatic about these candidates’ decisions to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to their constituents,” said Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform.  

He continued, “With their Pledge, we can trust that they will champion pro-growth policies, protect our economic freedom, and resist any attempts to burden Americans with even higher taxes.” 

Unfortunately, Democratic candidates for office do not share this commitment. They seek to reverse course and implement backwards tax-and-spend policies that would only stunt economic growth and take more money out of the hands of taxpayers.  

President Biden and Vice President Harris have vowed to raise taxes: they have both repeatedly pledged to “eliminate”, “get rid of”, “repeal” and “reverse” the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which cut taxes for all Americans. 

New candidates sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge regularly. For the most up-to-date information on these races or any others, please visit the ATR Pledge Database.
