Grover Norquist, president of American for Tax Reform, says it’s not the lack of revenue coming into the government that is the problem.
“There’s a compromise to be made. Maybe we don’t get as much in spending restraint as the Republicans want, but raising taxes on a little bit, doesn’t solve the problem of the massive spending problem that we have. Doesn’t get spending down, it just raises taxes.”
“The problem is too much spending,” Norquist adds. “The problem is not that the peasants aren’t sending enough money into Washington.”
