Chet Beiler (R-PA), candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 16th Congressional District, has signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to the American People. The Pledge is a written commitment to the citizens of the 16th Congressional District and to the American people to oppose higher taxes. Beiler is running to replace Rep. Joe Pitts, who is retiring at the end of his term.

Beiler is a small businessman, who started the company Amish Country Gazebos and has become one of the nation’s leading makers of custom gazebos. In addition, Mr. Beiler has created several small businesses that have employed hundreds of people across Lancaster County for the past 30 years.

“The American people are tired of the tax-and-spend policies coming from Washington and they are looking for solutions that create jobs, cut government spending, and get the economy going again. Signing the Pledge is the first step in that process.”

The Taxpayer Protection Pledge has been offered to every candidate for federal office since 1986. In the 114th Congress, 218 Congressmen and 48 Senators have signed the Pledge.

“We are ecstatic about Beiler’s commitment to the taxpayers of Pennsylvania. I challenge all candidates for Pennsylvania’s 16th Congressional District to make the same commitment to taxpayers by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge today,” continued Norquist.

Chet Beiler will compete in the Pennsylvania Congressional Primary on April 26th.
