Norquist Says Bush Lied to Americans

In an interview with ABC News, Grover Norquist dismissed recent criticism of his tax pledge from former President George H.W. Bush, saying the 41st president had "lied" to the American people by raising taxes while in office.

Said Norquist: "When George Herbert Walker Bush ran for president, he promised the American people he wouldn't raise their taxes. He lied to them. He broke his commitment to them and they threw him out of office four years later."
