The Daily Quote
“The tax issue also has been a major sticking point for the House-Senate supercommittee that must find a way to cut at least $1.2 trillion from the deficit by Thanksgiving….testimony by former Sen. Alan Simpson to the bipartisan panel earlier Tuesday…urged GOP members of the committee to stand up to Norquist. ‘The only thing he can do is try to defeat you in your reelection, and if that means more to you than your country, you shouldn’t be in Congress’”
