. . . . Without Voting to Raise Taxes

The most credible theory I’ve heard/read so far (I don’t remember the source) has it that Republicans who’ve all taken the Grover Norquist “no new taxes” pledge don’t dare cross him.

The alternative?

Go over the fiscal cliff — which automatically raises taxes — then vote immediately afterwards to selectively lower them.

Problem solved (sort of).

P.S.:  Who elected Grover Norquist??
