Remember last year when the unwillingness of a Tea Party-ish Congress to raise the debt ceiling damaged our country's credit rating? And do you recall the same folks calling for austerity cuts to social safety net programs instead of raising taxes on billionaires, to reduce the national deficit? It's all most time for the fiscal cliff joyride again!
The fans of balancing the budget on the backs of the poor children and elderly of America, really dug their heels in on anything that might make the sitting President look like he was helping the economy, at the cost of hurting their fellow Americans, well, they are all just great admirers of Grover Norquist.
Now, Grover's been described as “The dark wizard of the Right's anti-tax cult.” He is very good at his job, which is helping the uber rich keep most of their incomes, and convincing the right people to aid him in that aim. He will tirelessly stay on message on political shows, in his magazine and internet columns, at D.C. insider parties, and in the very halls of our government to accomplish that purpose. Grover Norquist is unsurprisingly, the founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform. More at: Livendepolitics
