By signing this pledge, Republicans are required to oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal tax rate on businesses or individuals regardless of need, necessity, or common sense. Should a signee choose to violate this agreement they can no doubt look forward to facing the full fury and financial resources of Grover Norquist’s ATR, ensuring an extremely difficult reelection campaign.
