ATR President Grover Norquist appeared on CNBC’s Power Lunch Wednesday along with Larry Kudlow. Norquist emphasized the idea that all tax reform should be permanent, such is the House GOP tax plan.

Norquist said:

“The House has put together a plan which is coherent, I think it’s fine. It always could be improved, also could be badly damaged if they go in the wrong direction. But it would be a permanent tax reduction. So the question we have to ask is, do you stay within the bounds of what allows you to make it a permanent tax reform, permanent reduction in taxes, so that you can do it with fifty-one votes in the senate, otherwise nothing happens. There are no Democrat votes for any tax increase any time in the next twenty-five years, but at least the next twenty-five months. So you really want to … make it permanent.”
