The following piece by Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, was published in California's leading political website, FlashReport.org.
During my visit to Sacramento today, in addition to paying the highest sales tax in the nation, I’ll get the opportunity to personally thank Republican legislators for their commitment to California taxpayers. As it stands, Republican legislators in the Senate and Assembly are the only force preventing a tragic sequel to the largest state tax increase in U.S. history.
It’s not lost on me that legislators who signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge are frequently accused by Democrats and the establishment media (same thing, really) of pledging their allegiance to me or the organization that I run, Americans for Tax Reform.
