Grover Norquist Warns Dems, GOP: Anti-Tax Pledge Will Hold
http://www.alternet.org/economy/grover-n...-will-hold

From the article:
Quote:Grover Norquist has a warning for anyone who thinks the influential anti-tax advocate has lost power in Washington.

“No one is caving,” the head of the Americans for Tax Reform told the Wall Street Journal, in a wide-ranging weekend interview.

Norquist — who built his power by getting hundreds of House Republicans and Congressional candidates to sign a pledge vowing to never raise taxes — has been perceived to be on the defensive since House Speaker John Boehner and even Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested they would be open to new revenues in a compromise to avoid the so-called “fiscal cliff.”

...

Grover doesn't have the power that he thinks. Our asshat repub Saxby Chambliss (GA) was on the local newscast not exactly holding to the anti-tax pledge. If a lock-stepper like Chambliss can say that out loud, how many other repubs are thinking it? After the thumping the repubs took on Election Day and now the chance they could be blamed if the country goes over the "fiscal cliff" might be too much for some repubs to deal with. Scared

Let's hope at least 120 have that much sense.

I thought the same thing when I heard about Chambliss, Brewman, "Whoa, Grover is in trouble if that's what Chambliss is saying in public."
