Norquist On Lame Ducks And 2011


Regarding, lame duck session: Norquist indicated that we saw that the GOP got lower taxes victories but the Democrat Party did with a super majority on other things. Bi-partisanship going into 2011 depends on whose on top.

Snippets from the interview:

Presidential possibilities going into the 2012 election, Palin, Gingrich, Romney. 10 Republican Governors, Rick Perry, Bobby Gindal, Chris Christie and any new ones coming in.

The trade-off for Republicans in the lame duck was the unemployment benefits and the death tax and expensing.

GOP should have ObamaCare as the #1 issue to undo.

One trillion dollars can be taken off the table immediately such as, TARP, bail-outs and other money can be taken off the table by the new Republican Congress.

Will Obama veto a Republican budget? Norquist don't think it would be in his best interest.

It would be a good idea to pass bold, good idea, radical tax reforms.

Government is spending too much at the local and federal level. Federal government should not bail out the states. States should function like private businesses. One state government such as California could pull down the other fifty. It's not other states responsibility to pay for them.

Net neutrality is a bad idea because it's just another way to take control.
