3 more Candidates Pledge to Reject the Debt

Three candidates from California, Nevada and North Carolina have signed our Reject the Debt pledge recently.

Shastina Sandman is running for Congress in California’s 48th district. Ms. Sandman is a political activist and social media personality. On her campaign site, she highlights the need to examine military spending.

I am in support of increasing the security of our nation but we can’t continue to let our spending get out of control.

Mark Harris is running for office in North Carolina’s 9th district. Mr. Harris is a devout husband, father, pastor and community leader. On his website, he talks about the proper role of the federal government.

The vast majority of the functions that Washington currently performs are not in the Constitution. I believe that the primary role of the federal government is to physically protect its citizens through a strong national defense and protect their rights by limiting the federal government to its narrow Constitutional role.

Michelle Mortensen is running in Nevada’s congressional district 3. Ms. Mortensen is a 7-time Emmy award winner who worked as a consumer advocate for a CBS affiliate. Healthcare is a primary focus of her campaign. She talks about reforming the current system on her website.

Solving our healthcare crisis won’t be easy, but we desperately need reform. You don’t need the government telling you what type of healthcare you require. You should be able to pick the plan that works best for you. It is time we gave power back to the people to make their health care decisions. It’s time the people who need quality care get it. Too many people are being left behind thanks to ACA and we cannot allow that to happen any longer.  We can no longer put our heads in the sand and act like everything will just work out. Lying to the American people must stop.  We must tell the truth and bring solutions. We don’t need government run health care or insurance run health care. We need patient focused health care.

We are pleased to have three more candidates who are dedicated to stopping the growth of spending and debt. More information, including the full text of the pledge, can be found at http://www.ReduceSpending.org/reject-the-debt.

The Coalition to Reduce Spending is a non-partisan advocacy organization dedicated to limiting federal spending. The Reject the Debt spending pledge commits elected officials and candidates to (1) consider all spending open for reduction and vote only for budgets that present a path to balance and (2) vote against any appropriations bill that increases total spending and against the authorization or funding of new programs without offsetting cuts in other programs.
