Video: Another Republican Senator Tells Grover Norquist to Take a Hike

by: lowkell

Sun Nov 25, 2012 at 16:14:16 PM EST



Per ThinkProgress:
When you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid becoming Greece, and Republicans should put revenue on the table. We're this far in debt. We don't generate enough revenue. Capping deductions will help generate revenues. Raising tax rates will hurt job creation. I agree with Grover that we shouldn't raise rates, but I think Grover is wrong when it comes to we can't cap deductions. [...] I will violate the pledge, long story short for the good of the country, only if Democrats will do entitlement reforms.
What's Grover going to do when he's completely irrelevant, as he's rapidly becoming? Here's a thought: go find another country to try and screw up, and leave the United States of America alone!
