Republicans Won’t Consider Tax Hike On Wealthy Four Days After Losing Election

No mention of the reason for this refusal being their pledge to Grover Norquist.

From a NYT article:

“The divide between Mr. Obama and Mr. Boehner appears wide. In their Saturday addresses, the president demanded immediate House passage of a bill approved by the Senate that would extend the expiring Bush-era tax cuts for households earning under $250,000, while the speaker said raising tax rates on anyone would be unacceptable.”
