Norquist Blames VOTERS for Stalemate in Congress!

Voting has consequences.
If you voted for a person that signed his “No New Taxes” Pledge
– YOU are to blame for the stalemate in congress.

Grover Norquist holds YOU responsible!
His pledge is not responsible – YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE if you voted for and elected people who signed the “No New Taxes Pledge”


Here are excerpts from last night’s 60 Minutes interview with Grover Norquist – I suggest you read the transcript or watch the entire video.
Kroft: But you're the keeper of the pledge.

Norquist: We remind your voters that you took the pledge.

Kroft: You are the ones that are--

Norquist: That's true.

Kroft: --gonna retaliate if they break the pledge.

Norquist: Oh, no, no, no. The voters will retaliate. We may inform the voters. But let's say the voters all want --

Kroft: Inform the voters with hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign or educational -

Norquist: Nineteen--

Kroft:--expenditures to point out the fact that they broke the pledge.

Norquist: If necessary.

Kroft: But you make it pretty clear. If someone breaks the pledge, you're gonna do everything you can to get rid of them.

Norquist: To educate the voters that they raise taxes. And again, we educate people--

Kroft: To get rid of them.

Norquist: To encourage them to go into another line of work, like shoplifting or bank robbing, where they have to do their own stealing.

Kroft: You've got them by the shorthairs.

Norquist: The voters do. Yeah.

Simpson: He may well be the most powerful man in America today. So if that's what he wants, he's got it. You know, he's -- megalomaniac, ego maniac, whatever you want to call him. If that's his goal, he's damn near there. He ought to run for president because that will be his platform: 'No taxes, under any situation, even if your country goes to hell.'

Simpson also wants to know where Norquist and Americans for Tax Reform, with its multimillion dollar budget gets its money.

Simpson: When you get this powerful, and he is, then it's, 'Where do you get your scratch, Grover?' Is it two people? Is it 10 million people? The American people demand to know where you get your money, Grover babe.

Kroft: I mean, you've got them coming and you've got them going if they're a Republican. If they sign the pledge and break it they're toast. And if they don't sign the pledge they're probably toast.

Norquist: But if they sign it and keep it, they win the primary. They win the general. They get to govern. And, I've helped make all this possible.

If you voted for a person that signed his “No New Taxes” Pledge
 – YOU are to blame for the stalemate in congress.

Hear that ??
– Grover Norquist says: YOU ARE TO BLAME! For the stalemate in Congress!

Voting has consequences.

Here's a complete list of the 112th Congress politicans who have signed the Grover Norquist "No New Taxes Pledge"
- a pledge to a private organization that nullifies their pledge to uphold the Consitution.

Here's a list of all state legislators (as of 2010) who have signed the Grover Norquist "No New Taxes Pledge".

Voting has consequences!
Signing PLEDGES has consequences!
    - a "No New Taxes" legislator - state or federal level
    - who says they are changing their mind now -
is probably lying to you.

                          AND it's too late - butthead
                          - the damage caused by you signing Norquist's pledge
                          is already done!

Kick their a$$ out of office
elect someone smart enough to NOT SIGN PLEDGES!
