In the wake of the election, there has been some confusion over whether Reps. Charles Boustany and Jeff Landry have signed ATR’s Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Both candidates have, in fact, signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge for this election cycle.
The Pledge, sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform, 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 confirms that Rep. Charles Boustany [Pledge] is a long-time supporter of the Pledge, and Rep. Jeff Landry [Pledge] has been a signer since he began his first term in 2010. Neither candidate has ever broken their Pledge to taxpayers.
“I want to once again congratulate Dr. Boustany and Mr. Landry for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Both Congressmen have proven their commitment to opposing higher taxes. Louisiana taxpayers can rest assured that they will continue to have a voice in Congress that stands up for their interests,” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR.
