North Dakota Governor, and presidential hopeful, Doug Burgum has signed the Americans for Tax Reform’s “Taxpayer Protection Pledge.”
The pledge is a written commitment to U.S. Taxpayers to oppose and veto any tax increases. According to an ATR press release, “Candidates often make campaign promises not to raise taxes, only to abandon taxpayers once elected. The Taxpayer Protection Pledge requires candidates to put their commitment in writing, making it harder to reverse course.”
