Mary Beth Schneider writes for The Indianapolis Star: “Anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist, who has been called the most powerful unelected person in the nation, said in Indianapolis on Monday that the federal government needs to avoid default by raising the debt ceiling — but only by cutting spending. He praised House and Senate Republicans, saying they are telling Obama ‘no, no, no, no tax increase.’ ‘He's going to have a hissy fit if he doesn't get a tax increase and close the whole government down,’ he said. ‘I hope the president will get off of his political hobbyhorse and decide to focus on the needs of the country and compromise.’”
