Grover Norquist Gives Green Light to Tax Revenue Increase? (ContributorNetwork)
ContributorNetwork - ANALYSIS | In a Washington Post interview published Wednesday, conservative strategist and tax reform lobbyist Grover Norquist may have given Republican lawmakers the leeway they need to cut a deal in the debt ceiling talks that would be popular with most Americans. He told the Post's editorial board that allowing the Bush tax breaks to expire was not technically a violation of the pledge that an overwhelming majority of Congressional Republicans have signed since taking office -- that of never supporting or voting for a tax increase. But then he said that his powerful tax reform organization would not support such a move. Some see his words as a way out of the debt ceiling impasse, but it may not be so simple.
