Norquist on fiscal cliff: “There’s a compromise to be made”
Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist continues to make his case for extending tax cuts for everyone.
Norquist says, “There’s a compromise to be made. Maybe we don’t get as much in spending restraint as the Republicans want, but raising taxes on a little bit, doesn’t solve the problem of the massive spending problem that we have. Doesn’t get spending down, it just raises taxes.”
“The problem is too much spending,” Norquist adds. “The problem is not that the peasants aren’t sending enough money into Washington.”
