Republican Saxby Chambliss Criticizes Norquist’s Pledge

There isn’t much that Saxby Chambliss and I have in common, but we found one!

Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) unloaded on anti-tax activist Grover Norquist and his “no new taxes” pledge this week, saying that it has impeded meaningful progress toward finding additional revenue and a path away from the fiscal cliff.

“I care too much about my country — I care a lot more about it than I do about Grover Norquist,” Chambliss told Georgia’s WMAZ in acknowledging that he could face repercussions from Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform. “Norquist has no plan to pay this debt down. His plan says you continue to add to the debt, and I just have a fundamental disagreement about that and I’m willing to do the right thing and let the political consequences take care of themselves.”
