Grover Norquist and the Debt Debate

Bloomberg has a must-read profile of Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform and an activist who has emerged as a leading player in the debate over the country's debt problems.

"There may be enough congressional Republicans enthralled with Norquist, a small-government advocate who has spent the last quarter-century pressing lawmakers to sign a pledge never to raise taxes, to kill any comprehensive, bipartisan deal to rein in the $14.3 trillion national debt, say current and former members of Congress."

Norquist "says he has secured written pledges from 40 of the 47 Republicans in the Senate and 233 of 240 party members in the House."
