Looking at Famed Conservative Anti-Tax Crusader Grover Norquist Shows Just How Wrong Conservatives Are

And How Unwilling They Are to Admit It

With the complete and utter failure of big tax cutting policy now demonstrated in Kansas by the fact that Republicans have repudiated the policy and voted to raise taxes, we thought it was time to take a look at what the leading anti-tax right wing kook Grover Norquist has said over the years.  Norquist is famous for creating the tax pledge he browbeats Reublicans into signing, a pledge that they will not ever raise taxes .  Here are some quotes from Brainy Quotes  that demonstrate his deep and profound ignorance.

People who say that there's a vote within the Republican Party that moves against immigrants is just factually not accurate.

Gosh, anyone want to dispute that?  Anybody?  Donnie you have the floor.

Obama has been perhaps the most partisan President since Truman. He hasn't learned to be civil -

He did not have to learn to be civil, he always was.  Now about the current Pres . . .

If you raise taxes, it won't reduce the deficit. The other team will simply spend the resources.

Clinton raised taxes, the economy soared, spending dropped as a percent of GDP and the budget was balanced.  Obama did almost the same, just did not quite get the budget balanced because he started in a much deeper hole.  Grover, don’tcha just hate it when history proves you wrong.

The question is: How do we reduce spending from 25% of GDP, which is where Obama put us? 

Actually spending was close to but not at 25% in the last fiscal year that GWB had control.  The Obama administration reduced that level to just above 20%.  Still waiting for praise from Grover.

If you're so committed to liberty that you see the Soviet Union as a threat, you're a Republican. If you're kind of indifferent to freedom and the level of the lack of freedom in the Soviet Union is just a question of extent and not really threatening to anybody, then you're a Democrat.

Okay, substitute Russia for Soviet Union and change interchange Republican and Democrat and now you have a correct statement.

Okay, everyone get the picture!
