And How Unwilling They Are to Admit It
With the complete and utter failure of big tax cutting policy now demonstrated in
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.
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
for Soviet Union and change interchange
Republican and Democrat and now you have a correct statement.
Okay, everyone get the picture!
