Finally cracks in the GOP Armor over 'No New Taxes'! Gawd I hope he's not the only one.
"Have we really reached the point where one person's demand for ideological purity is paralyzing Congress to the point that even a discussion of tax reform is viewed as breaking a no-tax pledge?"
Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) launched a verbal assault on an unconventional target Tuesday, taking aim at Grover Norquist and his highly influential tax policy group, Americans for Tax Reform.
In a speech from the House floor, Wolf accused Norquist and Americans for Tax Reform of complicating the deficit-cutting process with their efforts to encourage Republican politicians to sign onto a "no new taxes" pledge, which has recently stretched far past the issue of personal taxes.
I watched Rep. Wolf on cspan when he went off on Grover Norquist. He brought up a lot of the taudry background of Norquist, his Abramhoff connections and other very questionable negative doings.
Maybe the worm is starting to turn toward some sanity in Congress.
