In a press release, Representative Todd Rokita (Ind.-04) listed Americans for Tax Reform as a supporter of his bill, The Student Success Act (SSA):

 “‘No Washington bureaucrat cares more about a child than a parent does.  And no one in Washington knows what is better for an Indiana school than Indiana families do.  That is why the Student Success Act (SSA) puts an end to the administration’s National School Board by putting state and local school districts back in charge of their own schools. 

‘Many Hoosiers will also be pleased to know that the Student Success Act prohibits the Secretary of Education from coercing states into adopting Common Core, again returning accountability and standards to state and local school districts, where it belongs,’ said Rokita.”


The Tribune Papers published the following article by Kevin King which included Grover Norquist’s personal praise of the job that Governor Scott Walker has done in Wisconsin:

“He continues, ‘Since Walker signed these reforms, the state’s unemployment rate has dropped from 7.6 percent to 7 percent — below the national average. Walker has taken the $3.6 billion deficit that his Democratic predecessor left him and turned it into a $419 million surplus…Two years later, it is clear that not only were Walker’s reforms good policy, they were good politics.’ To which he cites a large increase in Walker’s approval rating.”


News Buster’s reporter Noel Sheppard wrote an article about Grover Norquist’s sly remarks while on Real Time with Bill Maher: “Norquist Demolishes Maher: ‘He Doesn’t Understand the Difference Between Reagan and Dole’”

"‘Bob Dole does not exactly qualify as a Ronald Reagan, limited government Republican. I'm sorry,’ countered Norquist.

With a shocked look on his face, Maher replied, ‘What? Wow, you're bar is pretty high.’

‘Can you make distinctions on the left for crying out loud?’ marvelously responded Norquist who then leaned to Mack sitting next to him and said, ‘He doesn't understand the difference between Reagan and Dole.’"
