Norquist Endorses Boehner Plan
Via Politico: Grover Norquist backs John Boehner’s debt bill
“Boehner’s plan is the only way to bring spending down by the same amount the debt ceiling increases – without raising taxes,”Norquist said Wednesday in POLITICO’s Arena. “It is a tremendous win for the forces of limited government.”
That should give the Tea Partiers enough cover to vote for the package, I suppose. They are also under a lot of pressure from House leadership at the moment, it would seem.
