Mitt Romney Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge

Mitt Romney Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge
Massachusetts Governor makes written promise to eschew tax hikes

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a candidate vying for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination, recently signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR). The Pledge 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."

Gov. Romney became the first major candidate to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge on December 31st, 2006. As Governor, Mitt Romney pressed for several major tax cuts in the difficult blue-state environment of Massachusetts.

ATR has offered the Pledge to all candidates for federal office since 1987. To date, President George W. Bush, 43 U.S. senators, and 197 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed the Pledge. Additionally, seven Governors and over 1,100 state legislators have signed the Pledge as well.

“In signing the Pledge, Gov. Romney firmly commits himself in writing to fiscal discipline and economic common sense,” Grover Norquist said.“Mitt Romney has told taxpayers in no uncertain terms that he plans to look out for their interests.”

“I strongly encourage every Presidential candidate to sign the Pledge,” Norquist continued.

The only good thing Rich Money did as governor was enacting Romneycare and mandating everyone get health insurance and raising fees to collect additional tax revenue to balance the state's budget.

Obama could learn a thing or two from anyone's playbook since he hasn't one of his own.

Obama is so unfair. Bishop Rmoney's record as governor has no correlation to how he would be a president. His business experience at Bain Capital is more relevant. Besides Bishop Rmoney vowed he would repeal RMONEYCARE.

I hear Romney is putting out a play book on dog care and a hair styling guide. Neither will make the best sellers list.

Lauching, dear, even you know thast RMoney's "qualifications" and work experience as governor is relevant to whether we should vote for a stiff shifty leaderless backwards-thinking man like RMoney or vote for a second term for President Obama.

Try again ...

Dear, he is running on his accomplishments. The point is we have to see if RMoney has other accomplishments over and above RMoneyCare! LOLL

How a politician votes is fair game. Much more moral than Romney's personal attacks and fallacies, Romney loves the slippery slope fallacy in his ads against Obama.

How many times did Obama vote "Present" while senator?

How many times did Obama fail to vote while Senator?

A wishy, washy UNVETTED Senator, a do nothing president.

Democrats dominated the USA in 2008 (Obama,Pelosi, Reid) and they failed to cobble together a budget. Obama couldn't even work with his OWN party to present a budget!

The Democrats still dominate the Presidency and Senate and Obama and Reid have FAILED again to bring forth a budget.

Obama can't even sit down with his own party's leadership to craft a budget after 3 and a half years.

He is NO LEADER! He is NO UNITER! He has failed to do what he promised when running for President.

He can't compromise and this government doesn't do well when the President fails to bring both sides together.

Can you imagine we were in an economic tsunami and the President couldn't even present a budget when his OWN political party had total control and didn't need republican votes.

He had an opportunity and Obama Failed. His inexperience, his hyper-isolation, his mistrust of others has placed America in a war within its own borders. Thank Obama.

We're tired of hearing about Bush, we want the President to run on what he has done and stop acting like an adolescent blaming everyone else.

Think about it before stating more stupidity.
