Grover Norquist dismisses ‘impure thoughts’ on taxes

Source: Washington Post

A day after two Republican lawmakers announced they would no longer comply with his “Taxpayer Protection Pledge” to never vote to raise taxes, Grover Norquist said he would work against those members who violate the pledge.

Sens. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), along with Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), said in recent days that they were willing to vote for revenue increases despite having taken the pledge.

His group, Americans for Tax Reform, will “certainly highlight who has kept their commitment and who hasn’t,” Norquist told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien. But he said he wasn’t worried that lawmakers’ talk of breaking the pledge would turn into action.

“No Republican has voted for a tax increase,” Norquist said.“We’ve got some people discussing impure thoughts on national television.”

I guess Grover Norquist is putting an end to any idea of any type of grand bargain and dismissing talk of tax increases as folks discussing "impure thoughts." Talk about a god complex. At the same time, Grover has been having elected officials signing pledges to him and willing to plunge the nation into default out of respect for this pledge. I guess we can understand why he would use quasi-religious talk to characterize taxes.
