Missouri Senate candidate Sarah Steelman today issued a "Contract with Missouri."
The contract amounts to a pledge on "specific, concrete actions" she'll take in the U.S. Senate.
"A lot of candidates talk in vague terms about their plans, and refuse to give specific details about how they'd vote or what they'd do. But that isn't good enough anymore," Steelman said.
"From the beginning of this campaign I have offered details about what Washington programs I'd cut, and what legislation I'd sponsor or support. This contract offers voters a clear vision; it is a check list and is something they can use to measure my performance."
Items on the contract include her intentions to:
· Repeal Obamacare and its massive job killing taxes;
· Vote against raising the national debt limit;
· Oppose all and any new job killing taxes;
· Enact a moratorium on any new federal regulations; require a comprehensive review of all existing regulations and work to repeal unnecessary and burdensome regulations;
· Reform the tax code through a flat tax to create fairer taxes;
· Guarantee 2nd Amendment Rights to law abiding citizens;
· Protect the life of the unborn and end abortion;
· Amend the Constitution requiring Congress to pass a real balanced budget and another to cap the size of government;
· Eliminate taxpayer-funded Congressional pensions and perks;
· Suspend salaries of members of Congress until they pass a budget;
· Amend the Constitution enacting term limits on Congress and unelected federal judges;
· Vote for legislation banning all earmarks and fight any attempts to repeal or reinstitute earmarks.
