Washington, DC- The Contract from America Foundation announced yesterday that Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference and the highest-ranking woman in Republican leadership, joined over 200 Senate and Congressional candidates nationwide in signing the “Contract from America,” a grassroots legislative blueprint for 2010 and beyond.
After signing this commitment to fiscal responsibility and good governance, Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers commented, “I’m very pleased to sign the ‘Contract from America.’ This contract embodies the best ideas of a wonderful grassroots movement that will bring common sense and accountability to Washington… By enacting the Contract – and continuing to advocate for America’s constitutional principles – we can help launch an American Renaissance – a new era of freedom, opportunity, limited government, and prosperity. I’m very excited for the future."
The Contract from America is not a list handed down from on high by old-bull politicians. After garnering nearly half a million votes in less than two months, the Contract from America is an authentic grassroots document expressing what a majority of Americans want for their future.
FreedomWorks strongly supports the ten ideas voted into the Contract, which advocate fundamental tax reform, fiscal responsibility and limited government.
FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe commented, “We are thrilled that our FreedomWorks members are continuing to spread the word about the Contract from America. This is a document created by the people, for the people that sends a clear message to Washington: We want less. Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers is a very strong addition to the growing list of Contract signers. ”
“By signing the Contract from America, Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers has shown herself to be a true champion of liberty and the free market,” added Ryan Hecker, an organizer of the Contract from America. “She made a pledge to her constituents that she will continue to be an effective conservative leader in the House."
