Norquist Determining Climate Change Policy

Grover Norquist signalled to his GOP minions that they had better not support a carbon tax because it would break the pledge they made to him not to raise taxes. I mean, the pledge they made to their constituents via Norquist. 

As I’ve written in previous posts, the issue should be discussed, as with all tax policy, and the elected leaders should hear from their constituents whether to support a tax increase. Why is a lobbyist issuing such declarations?

From Politico:

“Don’t even think about supporting a carbon tax, Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist told congressional Republicans on Tuesday.

Norquist blasted out a statement saying a carbon tax would almost certainly violate the pledge many Republicans took at his group’s behest not to raise taxes.”
