    Republicans need to tell Norquist to shove his pledge up his lobbyist ass.

    If tax increases on the rich and corporations is the answer, then explain California. They have the highest tax rates over a vast majority of states, including corporate taxes, and under the control of a Democrat legislature, yet where is that states budget today? Problem?

    Why, if you want more revenue which I do not oppose why should I give you any when the only response from your party during a conference call was

    ANY CUT IS EXTREME.

    Btw, this guy is only arguing for it for "deficit reduction", not to actually fund anything going on now.

    IOW, fuck him, as far as I'm concerned.

    Someone also needs to tell Democrats just raising taxes on the rich will accomplish nothing you have to have serious spending cuts along with it and everything has to be on the table.

    Cut spending first then we will go from there. It's a known fact the government raises taxes but never seems to cut spending.

    How any real representative of the United States can sign a pledge like that is so idiotic.
    Without having the sense to keep any options open it is a sign of someone bought and paid for by someone. It really has no place in the halls of our capital.
