Grover Over?

Grover Over?

When Republicans signaled a willingness to break with Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge, it triggered speculation that the longtime small-government crusader had lost his leverage with the GOP. But reports of the death of Norquist’s clout appear to be exaggerated. Yes, high-profile lawmakers such as Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, have signaled a willingness to break the pledge—if needed—to seal a broad deficit-reduction deal, but more than 95% of GOP lawmakers currently in Congress, including those on the congressional tax-writing committees, have signed Norquist’s pledge.
