House Republican rips into Grover Norquist

Americans for Tax Reform’s Grover Norquist is a man who has way too much power over the Republican Party. He’s been able to demand that Republicans sign his “No New Taxes” pledge, backed by the threat of political consequences if the pledge is broken, and only six Republicans have refused to do sign on it. According to Politico, Virginia Representative Frank Wolf ripped into Norquist on the House floor in a speech yesterday.

Good for Congressman Wolf. More Republicans need to stand up to Norquist, who has long publicly advocated cutting taxes so deeply that the government would cease to function at all. Norquist’s extremism, especially given the public’s (misplaced) concern about the national debt, serves only the fat cats who have already grown fantastically rich on the backs of the lower and middle classes.
