Norquist: Rep. King knew that pledge was "not for a two year period"

Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist says Rep. Peter King (R-NY) knew that by signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge to not raise taxes, he knew that the commitment was for the duration of his Congress run, not just for one term. Norquist adds that he would highlight those who break from pledge.

Norquist says, “I do want to correct one thing. Congressman Peter King of New York knows full well that the pledge that he signed and others have, is for while you’re in Congress. It’s not for a two year period.”

Rep. Pascrell: Must raise rates; will not jeopardize entitlement benefits

House Budget Committee Member Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) says Democrats are willing to compromise to avoid fiscal cliff, but will not “jeopardize plan benefits for Social Security” or Medicare benefits. Pascrell says he’s open to changing Medicare, limiting deductions and considering revenue options.

On Republicans breaking from Grover Norquist’s Taxpayer Protection Pledge, Rep. Pascrell says, “The devil’s in the details, as you well know. I’m glad that some Republicans … understand that the math doesn’t just add up if you simply take revenue off the table. You can’t do that.”
