The Daily Quote

“Grover Norquist’s grip on the House Republican Conference is loosening. A growing number of GOP lawmakers have disavowed Norquist’s pledge against supporting tax increases in recent days, telling The Hill they no longer feel bound to uphold a document that they signed, in some cases, more than a decade ago…. The pledge dissenters represent the latest challenge to Norquist, widely considered the nation’s most influential anti-tax activist… The pledge, which Norquist launched in 1986, has taken on added significance as the congressional ‘supercommittee’ on deficit reduction nears its deadline for finding at least $1.2 trillion in budget savings over 10 years. Democrats are insisting on new tax revenues, but the pledge mandates that any tax changes be revenue-neutral. They blame the pledge for the impasse in the talks.”
