In return for signing the pledge, Republicans receive outside campaign donations and ads to get elected. We saw this with Grover‘s latest recruit into his clique, Keith Rothfus, our new congressman. This no-tax pledge sounds great and it‘s popular. Rothfus signed the pledge and now his job is easy. He ...
