Evan Feinberg, endorsed by Erick Erickson and other national conservatives, worked with other conservative leaders to create the Reject the Debt Pledge.
The pledge states the following:
I, ____________________, recognize that the national debt and unsustainable level of government spending pose a critical threat to the prosperity and security of the United States.
Therefore, I pledge to the citizens of my state and to the American people that, except when related to a congressional authorization of force, I will:
ONE, not vote for any budget that is not balanced nor for any appropriations bill that increases total spending; and
TWO, consider all spending open for reduction, and not vote to authorize or fund new programs without offsetting cuts in other programs; and
THREE, not vote to increase borrowing or the debt ceiling.
This pledge is exactly what America needs! While the Americans for Tax Reform Pledge is certainly good and noble, politicians can swear never to raise taxes…but that doesn’t mean they won’t continue spending left and right.
The following candidates/representatives have signed the pledge:
Texas United States Senate: Ted Cruz (R)
Texas CD-25: Wes Riddle (R)
Texas CD-34: Jessica Puente Bradshaw (R)
