“One of the challenges, of course, is people see this happening; they realize that the president has not been negotiating at all over the past three months,” Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, said on CNN’s “Starting Point.” “We learned days and weeks and months afterwards that they had non-meetings where this is going on.”
Imagine that! This is the same Grover Norquist who authored the “No Tax” pledge that just about all Republicans in Congress have signed. The Norquist Pledge, as it’s called, forces Republicans to avoid any negotiations that have to do with raising taxes on anyone, especially those making tons more than they need. This is the same Norquist who is now accusing the President of not negotiating.
He created a pledge guaranteeing that no negotiations are done, then he accuses the President of not negotiating. These Republicans are all jokers. There is no other conclusion one can make.
