It is an acknowledged fact that the majority of the Republican members of Congress took a pledge extracted from them by Grover Norquist not to cooperate in any way with President Obama’s proposals, in particular those that would raise taxes, even though the most wealthy in our nation, through tax shelters, pay less than the middle class. Norquist appears to be their “Godfather” of some sort. What hold does he have over the Republican Party? He has promised that their re-election will not happen should they fail to sign the pledge. Now do you get it?
