    You mean the GOP is not longer going to act like a petulant 14 year old boy? I’ll believe it when I see it.

    “Our tax system still siphons out of the private economy too large a share of personal and business purchasing power and reduces the incentive for risk, investment and effort – thereby aborting our recoveries and stifling our national growth rate.”

    – John F. Kennedy, Jan. 24, 1963, message to Congress on tax reduction and reform, House Doc. 43, 88th Congress, 1st Session.

    The GOP is trying to make some necessary changes in order to survive. Whether they are truly willing to work with Democrats, and if Dems are willing to work in sincere good faith with Republicans, to solve our national problems is yet to be seen. But I am hopeful, and I have written to my politicians over the past weekend. My wrist hursts… I don’t use ink and paper as much as I used to.
    The GOP and the Democrats have to be more willing to dig into the details of their issues and find ways to reduce costs. I personally believe that if the government puts more emphasis on enforcing existing regulation, putting more inspectors in the field to make sure laws and rules are being enforced in the spirit of which they were created we will see much less waste and costs will decrease. There are many things that can be done, but enforcement of existing rules is the first.
    Norquist has an ideal for how government should run, but it fails to consider the many things done to the middle and lower class wage earners by outsourcing, improper management of pension funds and many other blows our neighbors have taken from government and lobbyists.
    It is good that Republicans are making agreeable noises. It would be good for Dems to do the same. It will be great if the noise becomes deeds.
    Write your politicians.
    Respectfully,
    & Happy Holidayze,
    C.

    Which is exactly what Obama and the democrats want to happen. Is stifle growth.

    Uh, wrong. The democrats have never wanted to work in good faith. They wanted the GOP to give up everything they want and do exactly as they are told by the democrats.

    And then two years later a tax was enacted to help pay for the incursions into the Vietnam war. No such tax was raised or has been raised for the 12years of war incurred in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is a first for this country since Monroe. The policy created the largest deficit in history because of the wasting of existing treasure and the continuance of the Bush tax cuts enacted prior to the start of the wars. The combination of these two plus the bursting of the housing bubble was the Republican legacy. A tax increase is necessary not some 49 year old speech that is hopelessly out of date.

    @Rad-ish

    Based on Ziod’s answer, I’m not believing it. At the very least it hasn’t filtered down to the hyper partisan pundits that control Zoid and the bile he spews.

    Because he’s told to think it. You don’t actually believe he thinks for himself, do you?

    Grover called Romney a poopyhead.

    Who voted for Grover Norquist? Nobody. But an entire political party genuflects towards his bank account. Why? Because they believe that money is the sole gauge of human worth- the more money you have, the better a person you are. They believe that the rich are inherently superior and deserve power over the government and the people.
    We’ve had that once before, back in the age of the robber barons. And anyone who thinks of that as “the good old days” is probably a wanna-be robber baron themselves- or, more likely, a wanna-be sycophant, riding on their coattails.
    Dumping Mr. Norquist and getting back to sensible governing is going to be a key requirement to keeping the GOP out of the dustbin of history.

    I’ve always found it disturbing that Grover Norquist, a man who was never elected to office, and never subject to any Congressional review as an appointee could wield such enormous clout in Washington

    Because at heart Zoidknight is a nazi, its self identification.

    @The Wolf In Your Midst

    I hope you’re right about Norquist being dumped. A few Republicans are now floating trial balloons about breaking their pledge to serve Grover, but with disclaimers, like doing it for the good of the country.
    -
    And all this time, I thought that’s what they were supposed to be doing. I guess they really weren’t.
    -
    It’ll be interesting to see where the tipping point is when Grover loses power. Of course, he’ll be replaced by another Koch representative, but it’ll be a setback nevertheless.
    -
    I wonder, is Grover fatter than Rush?

    Any elected official who signed that phony pledge by Grover Norquist is not looking out for their constituents best interest but only their own. They pledged an oath to the people they represent not to GN.
