Prominent Republicans bucking against Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge

  • four the number of prominent Republican members of Congress or the Senate who have, in recent days, said they aren’t bound to Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge in the current fiscal cliff climate. The most recent is Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, who said this: “I’m not obligated on the pledge.” The Fix’s Aaron Blake suggests that, if the GOP isn’t careful in dealing with the current situation, it could be a “Read my lips: No new taxes” issue all over again. source

Jeb Bush, who doesn’t want to be vice president, would back raising taxes
But only $1 for every $10 cut. Let’s not get too crazy: The brother of George W. Bush isn’t afraid to break from his party on some issues, and one of those appears to be the hard stance that taxes could not raise in any circumstances whatsoever. “If you could bring to me a majority of people to say that we’re going to have $10 in spending cuts for $1 of revenue enhancement — put me in, coach,” he told the House Budget Committee Friday. In fact, Bush is one of those rare beasts who turned down Grover Norquist’s infamous pledge against all tax increases, at any time, ever. Whoa, this guy sounds like a moderate. Get him! source
