    Maybe Mr. Norquist would like to tell the American people that because of the Bush tax's and not raising any taxes on the RICH, they ALLl have to give up, EDUCATION, TEACHERS, FIRE FIGHTERS ECT., FOOD STAMPS, HEALTHCARE, SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE, MEDICADE, WOMANS RIGHTS TO EQUAL PAY, WOMANS HEALTH (PLANPARENT HOOD), EQUALITY, HELPING THE VERY POOR and so on, and so on, get the picture. To give more tax breaks to the rich, BECAUSE BIG MONEY is using the T-PARTY and ALL REPUBLICANS to be able to run the government the way they want. thats all it is and the sad thing is REPUBLICANS don't care, all they see is $$$$$ and they actually think they will have all the POWER, WRONG, they are BOUGHT and PAID FOR, you see the Kocke brothers and others knew they could never buy the DEMOCRATS, of course not, but you see the republicans have always LIED & LIED very well,over and over again to the American people, they have it down to a science, because it works, more so now because i cant find much MEDIA that actually calls them out on it, RACHEL MADDOW does. She is the best show that i have found that actually tells the truth, whether it be a republican, democrat, or anyone that lies, she will dig untill she finds the truth, if a mistake has been made, she will right away tell you, Not many republicans thinks highly of her for that reason. i wish all news and media would do the job they swore to do for the people, deliver the truthful news. It's not and should not be called news iif it's not true,

    Wolf the BS the GOP cutting spending all they are saying go after the poor , increase taxes to middle class, and then go after Medicare, Social Security and cut off medicate pure a simple. The more Romney and Jed Bush want to protect the rich and big business. The GOP years back gave our industrial away, I live in El Paso,TX right across the border is Juarez, MX they have over 100 American industrial plants, El Paso has done! Mr Romney and his dual citizenship gets very high profit because the town were his dad was born call Casa Grande enjoys big profit from those American industrial plants is that far to all the unemployed Americans. By the way it run by the Mormons.

    Who appointed Grover Norquist to be the Nation's tax God? Why doesn't Grover grow a set of balls, and put his name on a ballot somewhere, see if he can get himself elected, and then HE can help enact his tax policies. Meanwhile, really he's just a guy sitting on the side lines with a megaphone. The sad part in the number of GOP office holders who march in lock step with him. Who is he to hold them accountable any more than any other citizen?

    Grover Norquist, his co-conspirators at the confederate US Chamber of Commerce, and his infamous no-tax pledge are inflicting unfathomable damage upon this democracy. The right wing confederate Tea-Party Republicans have made our government a basket case; reasonable, prudent solutions to this country's JOBS, deficit and economic problems being proposed by a reasonable, prudent President are being purposefully blocked by these same unpatriotic, right wing confederate Norquist agents that have infiltrated our government. These Tea-Party Republican Norquist confederates represent a clear and present danger to America, more diabolical than Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Vote Republicans out of office; give the President the Congress he needs to get these problems solved; and, make Grover Norquist and his confederate right wing cabal within the Republican House and Senate cohort the enemies of the state they should be, and we'll take back our government and democracy from these corporate owned traitors!
