Chambliss Says He Won't Be Bound by Tax Pledge

As Congress faces negotiations about averting the "fiscal cliff," Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) told WMAZ-TV that he's not willing to be bound by the anti-tax pledge he once signed.

Said Chambliss: "I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge."

When asked if he thought anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist would hold it against him during his next re-election bid in 2014, he said he probably would.

"But I don't worry about that because I care too much about my country. I care a lot more about it than I do Grover Norquist."
