Tell Grover Norquist to Knock It Off!
Take a look at the video of our petition delivery to Grover Norquist:
Nearly 300 members of the House and Senate have signed pledges kept by Grover Norquist's organization, Americans for Tax Reform, promising that they will not support any measure increasing tax revenues, even taxes on billionaires, or even revenues generated by closing the most ridiculous loopholes. But Constitutional Progressives believe the only pledge our representatives in Washington should be upholding is the oath they take to the Constitution, not Grover Norquist or any other special interest.
Here's the letter that over 13,000 Americans signed:
Dear Mr. Norquist:
We are writing to urge you to affirm that every public official in the United States should put his or her constitutional oath to serve the interests of "We the People" over any pledge to a special interest, including your no-tax pledge.
Over the past several months, politicians across the political spectrum have argued that your demand for ideological purity and your strong-arm enforcement tactics are paralyzing Congress and preventing Congress from solving the problems of the American people.
Whatever our policy disagreements, we should all recognize that public servants must put their oath to support the Constitution over any special interest pledge.
Join us in urging public officials to put their oath to the Constitution first.
