    Grover thinks he is so much hot stuff, but I don’t see how he convinced all of them to sign a political ploy that put politics over the well-being of the nation and it’s people.
    Same with McConnell!

    They followed him like sad little puppy dogs, and it took this long for them to realize he’d been feeding them a bowl of poo?

    To answer that question: The wealthy backers of Grover elected him. Until enough public pressure is brought to bear, then Grover will continue to wield more power than he should be able to posses.

    The republicans elected Grover. They better do as he says or he will call them a “Rat’s head in a Coke bottle,” as he said on 60 Minutes.

    Bring back the tax rates on the rich that were in effect during the 1960’s. Bring back the Glass Steagall act. Restore the estate tax retroactively. Haul the thieves of wall street into court to be tried for their financial crimes. While we’re at it, send cheney/shrub/rumsfeld to the world court to be tried for their massive war crimes.

    @Clark Kent

    And while you’re at it haul Obama along for murdering US citizens abroad.

    When are we going to control spending?

    Maybe we can control spending the way Reagan did it.

    Oh, right. He was the previous “Spend your way out of a Recession” President.

    Actually, the “Almighty Dollar” elected Grover.

    Mr. Norquist apparently forgets these legislators also swore to protect and defend the Constitution of the USA against all enemies, foreign AND domestic. This pledge is an impediment to progress and therefore a threat to the USA. No one wants to have their taxes increased, but only the most shortsighted want to see important services ended. Somewhere between the idea of helping people and improve quality of life and the implementation of these rules a great deal of fraud, waste, and favoritism has grown into a ‘money maker’ of its own for those with the influence to influence politicians, or at the lower end, those who have learned to work the system.
    In 1979, interest rates had climbed to 15% and construction, the work I was doing, ended. The oil embargo was in effect, property values were dropping, and there was very little work. To keep my pregnant wife in college, I went door to door and washed windows, cleaned gutters, and did yard work while collecting food stamps. Every month, I had to report how much money I had made and I cannot tell you how many people told me to either under report or not report the money I made so I could get more food stamps.
    We still got more than we really needed, and it was enough to get my wife through her last year of college and within a year, we were off of food stamps, my wife and I had secure jobs, and we were grateful for the help we received when we needed it. And we did it with respect for the system that was helping us.
    We need to keep the services but lose the waste and fraud. Just as in the military… we need the services, but we need to lose the waste and fraud. We need wall street, but we need regulators to keep them from causing another recession. We need oil and gas, but we need inspectors to make sure our water, air, and land are not being placed at risk.
    We need good men and women working together in good faith to lead us to a better economy and a friendlier country, but we don’t need Mr. Norquist until he “evolves” to a more helpful way of thinking.

    Quite a few Republicans have already hit the silk, but I’m not sure if it’s enough to create a 60 vote majority for increased taxes in the Senate, or a 218 vote majority in the House.

    Not that anything will happen even if the current Congress does nothing, there’s all of January before anyone sees a pay check with the tax raises and pay cuts.

    And it is required by law for the big defence contractors to send notices two months in advance if anyone is to be laid off, and no notices have gone out under instructions from the White House, so nothing can happen until March, which gives the new Congress plenty of time to come up with something.

    Ask that twit Grover who funds him and he’ll refuse to answer because he’s funded and supported by the oil lobby and the Koch brothers.

    @C Downs:

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. Thanks.

    It’s “tail wags dog”. Let all the Republicans ignore him and raise taxes. What would happen to them? They can’t get primary challengers until 2014, and with the pounding the TEA-party took in Congress (plus Ryan…) this year it’s not likely they would succeed in winning the primaries – especially if the President comes and campaigns for the incumbents (independents would like that). Air Force One makes a special and very loud sound (politically) when landing…
