We are pleased to announce that Troy Ratterree and Veronica Birkenstock, running for Congress in the 6th and 26th Congressional Districts of Texas, respectively, have officially signed the Coalition to Reduce Spending’s pledge to cut spending and debt. The pledge stipulates that they will not vote for any spending without offsets elsewhere in the budget and will vote only for budgets with a path to balance.
Mr. Ratterree, a small business owner for nearly 40 years, joins candidates and elected officials from around the country, including Rep. Jason Lewis (MN-2), Rep. Steve Chabot (OH-1), and Rep. Mark Sanford (SC-1).
Upon signing, Ratterree frankly told the Coalition:
“We must stop borrowing from my grandchildren.”
Mrs. Birkenstock is also a small business owner and entrepreneur. After signing the pledge, she explained to us:
“We must learn to live within our means. Not to do so, is irresponsible.”
