U.S. no-tax pledge creator entreats Republicans
Norquist's "education" session comes ahead of tax battles
The creator and enforcer of a no-tax-hike pledge huddled with a small group of Republican lawmakers on Thursday in Washington to help strengthen their resolve ahead of tax battles expected to intensify in coming months.

At least the founding fathers supported the excise tax on imports. Today's Republicans are against ALL taxes. How does that work, especially when we in wartimes?

Norqvist the Nazi should be run out of the country, he's nothing but a nasty little extortionist and Rightie power-broker. Sad thing is, reTHUGlicans kowtow to him shamelessly. Of course, they put party before country, that's nothing new, but that's no reason to hand themselves over to this cheap pimp.
