    I’ll believe Grover has lost power when he has a stake through his heart. No Republican has yet broken their oath to protect and defend Grover, only noise about ‘giving up ground’. No votes yet.
    -
    Republicans still protect the rich and try to damage Obama above all else. They lost the election, but no attitudes have changed.
    -
    For example, if they really wanted to reduce the cost of Medicare, the House could pass a bill to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices with the manufacturers, just like EVERY private insurer. But, of course, Big Pharma is one of their principle owners , so that won’t happen.
    -
    BTW, the bill would have to be clean, without anti-abortion or repeal ACA riders. It would also have to not be filibustered. Under those conditions, it would pass more quickly than Congressional pay raises.

    WHO IS Norquist anyway?? Did he get voted in?? appointed??
    By whom?
    Did he just buy his way into power or walk in off the streets of DC?
    Who made HIM Boss of the republican party?
    He isn’t anyone I would want to be associated with.

    that is a kick in the head! Gone from Pro-worker to pro CEO! From a REAL party to one owned by the bosses. I would like to add bosses of crime, but don’t want anyone sending me viruses.

    I’ll say it again; I believe that Grover Norquist is a foreign agent. His ‘pledge’ has brought America to the brink of economic ruin, and who has the most to gain from that happening? If he is not a foreign agent he is just a total disgrace. I wish he’d take a clue from Jim DeMint an resign. Go. Scram. Leave the country and go work damage somewhere else.

    Radish: Got a link to that? Except for Strom Thurmond and the Dixiecrats, Dems were still Dems, protecting the New Deal from Republicans who are still trying to repeal it!

    It’s pretty obvious that you are living in a fairy tale version of 1957, where taxes were low, racism was non-existent and young people were all well behaved.

    BTW, I think you responded to my recent post about the justification for a progressive tax with the retort that it justified the government seizing all of my assets. If you paid any attention, you’d have noticed that I said “No one is calling for seizing all the assets of the wealthy.” By that line of thought any tax justifies that.

    Do you really think we can survive with no taxation? We didn’t rebel in 1776 because of taxes, we rebelled because we had no representation. You may disagree with the levels I think are appropriate & you can vote accordingly… or move to Somalia, where there are no taxes. You may have to bribe the local warlord, if you don’t want to be kidnapped.

    Try to respond to my actual comments next time.

    Radish, I would also like a link to that excellent poster you gave us. Reminds us of when the Republicans were the Grand Old Party. This is also when the “Dixiecrats” ruled the south and just before a couple of the southern states added the stars and bars to their flags.
    Those who refuse to learn from history….
    Great Post!.

    Numerous novels, movies, TV and even video games have suggested a future where the government is nothing more than a syndicate of corporations who openly own an’ run EVERYTHING!
    From where we are now, that’s one small step for man, one giant collapse for mankind… (’with apologies to Neil Armstrong – R.I.P.)

    Oh, an’ by the way….‘even 56 years ago (when this ’Norquist’ fella was born), in the “Happy Days” decade… … who in th’ world would think of naming their little boy “Grover”??? I mean, does anyone even KNOW of another “Grover” other than Grover Cleveland? …

    By the way…take a few minutes to read about ol’ President Cleveland on Wikipedia…he sorta sounds like the kinda guy we could use today, instead of a neophyte leftist radical who gives a whole new depth to the ol’ Dimocrap label of "Tax ‘n Spend, Tax ’n Spend – (th’ public’s gullibility an’ greed knows no end!).

    The one phrase that seems to sums up everything that has been happening around the world an’ particularly in the USA for years is one that we’ve heard far too much, but still rings so true… …
    “The world is going to hell in a hand-basket, and no one seems capable of lifting a finger to stop it.” (It may not have the sexy headline appeal of “Fiscal Cliff,” but when one asks what awaits us when we plunge over that ‘fiscal cliff’…none of the suggested answers are very pretty)…

    Tax and Spend vs. Borrow and Spend. Hmmm. . .One side is pay to play the other is dig a hole.

    OK. I know what your thinking: “Stop spending!!” Good luck with that.

    I’d try to go more with “Spend Wisely!”
