WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Ken Buck (R-Colo.) is leading a group of conservative members of Congress in the Pledge for America. Buck and six original signers are pledging to not accept campaign donations from Facebook, Google, Amazon, Apple, Twitter, their Political Action Committees, or individual donations from any executive employee thereof. Original signers include Reps. Chip Roy, Greg Steube, Dan Bishop, Ralph Norman, Andy Biggs, and Burgess Owens.
The pledge reads in part:
“As conservatives, we firmly believe in the free market and the free exchange of ideas. We will not continue to accept donations from companies who violate those convictions…The threat posed by these monopolies is a real and present danger to conservatives, libertarians, and anyone who does not agree with these corporations’ ultra-liberal points-of-view.”
Congressman Buck made the following statement concerning his Pledge to America:
“With this pledge, we, as conservatives, are taking a firm stance against Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon, and Twitter,” Buck said. “Thank you to my colleagues who joined me on this important effort to refuse campaign donations from Big Tech companies that act anticompetitively and censor conservatives.”
