Who is Grover Norquist? He’s not an elected or appointed official. Yet Republican representatives have signed a pledge with him not to raise taxes.
This is the biggest stumbling block in the way of achieving a decent compromise to avert the “fiscal cliff” at the end of this year when everybody’s taxes would have to be raised if there is no agreement.
Are our elected representatives sworn to Norquist, the ventriloquist who speaks for them, or can they speak for themselves and for the people who elected them?
