FreedomWorks today announced that Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) signed the Pro-Growth Pledge. The pledge is a statement of principles showing the signer’s commitment to economic growth through fundamental tax reform, reductions in spending, regulatory reform, sound money, energy freedom, and patient-centered health care.
Rep. DeSantis joins Reps. Randy Weber (R-Texas), Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), John Fleming (R-La.), David Schweikert (R-Ariz.), Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Dave Brat (R-Va.), and Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) as signers of the FreedomWorks’ Pro-Growth Pledge. The full text of FreedomWorks’ Pro-Growth Pledge is available here.
“Americans are hungry for a positive agenda that will boost all Americans through major tax reform that promotes entrepreneurship and economic growth, eliminates wasteful federal spending, and prevents the bureaucracy from drowning individuals and small businesses in red tape,” said Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) “The expansion of government has created significant headwinds that have led to lackluster economic growth. The path forward requires a reform agenda rooted in limited government principles.”
Rep. DeSantis, who has a 94 percent lifetime score on FreedomWorks’ Congressional Scorecard, signed the Pro-Growth Pledge during an event at the Nova Community Center in Ormond Beach, Florida. FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon lauded Rep. DeSantis’ work in Congress to advance pro-growth policies and shake up the status quo in Washington.
“From his military service to the halls of Congress, Rep. DeSantis has been a tireless fighter for the Constitution. He has worked to changed the status quo in Washington, introducing legislation to cut out the bureaucratic middleman on transportation, empower states to set their own priorities, and eliminate the federal gas tax,” said FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon. “Rep. DeSantis is also working tirelessly to hold the overreaching federal agencies accountable like the IRS for violating the law and Americans’ right to free speech.”
“We’re thrilled that Rep. DeSantis has signed FreedomWorks’ Pro-Growth Pledge and reaffirmed his support for limited government, free markets, and fundamental tax reform,” Brandon added.
