Rubio refuses to answer a question about the Norquist tax pledge

When pressed further by Meet the Press host David Gregory, Rubio—who is reportedly a potential running mate for Mitt Romney—repeated: "I would use revenue from growth. Which I think, when you talk about loopholes—"

"That wasn't my question," Gregory cut in. "Any closing loopholes— You know what I'm getting at, which is this idea of the tax pledge. Do you consider this— Raising taxes, if you close a loophole, you get new revenue to the government, you use part of it to pay down debt, maybe the majority of it to bring down tax rates."

"I know," Rubio replied, acknowledging that this was a question about Norquist's tax pledge, "but I reject the premise of that. I think that's a false choice."

"Other Republicans in the Senate don't think that's a false choice," Gregory said.

1. Did Rove's dancing partner actually hint at a real question?
