Grover Norquist's dictatorship over the U. S. Congress seems to be falling apart. His insane campaign to hold members of congress hostage to a twenty-year old pledge not to raise any taxes seems to be losing its terror hold on formerly cowardly politicians.
Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) has broken the strnglehold and is to be praised for doing so. Hear his statement here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/23/saxby-chambliss-grover-norquist_n_2177333.html.
It's about time for members of congress to "grow a pair" by standing up for reason and the welfare and future of the country. I think the recent druming the Republicans took in the election was the "handwriting on the wall" a significant number of them are finally reading. Hopefully, they are reading a whole lot more rather obvious signs that the days of economic madness have to end.
