Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) congratulates NV-04 candidate Lisa Song Sutton for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which is a written commitment to the people of Nevada to oppose higher income taxes.
Sutton joins Rep. Mark Amodei in making this commitment to Nevada taxpayers.
“I will not support increased taxation to aid a bloated government budget,” said Sutton. “I support the tax cuts, but we must curtail spending. The current budget is harmful to the American people.”
“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 grow the economy. Signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge and holding the line on taxes is the first step in that process,” said Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform.
Candidates running for public office like to say they will not raise taxes, but often turn their backs on the taxpayer once elected. The idea of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge is simple enough: Make them put their no-new-taxes rhetoric in writing. It is offered to every candidate for state and federal office and to all incumbents. Nearly 1,400 elected officials have signed the Pledge.
“We are ecstatic about Ms. Sutton’s commitment to the taxpayers of Nevada. I challenge all candidates for Nevada’s 4th Congressional District to make the same commitment to taxpayers by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge today,” continued Norquist.
