Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

"I'd do a check with Grover."

And here's Kerry Bentivolio, the congressman-elect from Milford who will take office Jan. 3 in former Rep. Thaddeus McCotter's district:

"I signed the pledge, and I intend to honor that," Bentivolio said in a phone conversation late Friday. Asked whether he would vote for a deal that matched every dollar in tax increases with $10 in spending cuts, Bentivolio hedged only a little.

"I'd do a check with Grover. I'd ask his opinion before I did anything else, because I like the way he thinks."

1. Every congressperson who makes this pledge needs to be impeached

The people elected them to congress, not Grover Norquist

2. Exactly and they should be required to pay the cost of the next election to replace themselves.

3. How about doing a "check" with the people who elected you?

Maybe you should remember the people of your district elected you. Not Grover Norquist.

You should really work on liking the way the people of your district think. Not an unelected lobbyist.

4. This is the one whose brother said he'd end up in prison if elected.

Off to a great start!

5. The people that vote fools like Bentivolio into office need to bury themselves alive. nt

7. That's creepy. It sounds like a Stalinist making sure he is saying what The Party wants him to say.
