Norquist: ‘We Are About to Have a Tea Party Second Wave that Will Dwarf the First Wave’
Americans for Tax Reform Chief Grover Norquist predicts Republicans will win the game of fiscal chicken with the President and foresees a huge new wave of the Tea Party.
In my interview (here at 31:30) I asked Norquist about his being the latest Obama and Obama Media diversion in what is supposed to be a serious discussion about the future
of taxation and spending. He brushed it off saying he’s used to it. He also said the President is the least serious player in the legislative scrum. He was heartened by the way Republican Senators were demanding today that any ‘fiscal cliff’ negotiations be on C-Span and any bill forthcoming should be on the web for at least a week was a “big break through; good stuff.” In fact, he said, “I think we have a shot at [getting transparency] it; I think this is breaking well.”
