ATR president Grover Norquist was a guest on CNBC’s Squawk on the Street today for a segment on the House GOP tax reform bill. He said:

“The top line news is that the Republicans just won the House and Senate in 2018. This is an amazingly pro-growth set of policies. Where we were told you could never see 3 percent growth again by the people who brought us 2 percent growth over the last 8 years — we are already at 3 percent — this will take us up to 4 percent. This is a very strong, pro-growth, job-creating package.”

Norquist also said:

“This is a job creation bill. The Democrats can play envy all they want. But at the end of the day, jobs will trump left wing envy. And this will bring the jobs. The Democrats are scared because of what this will mean for the 2018 election.”

“The Democrats can say anything they want, but this bill will be passed before Christmas and the American people will be able to see their taxes cut. And that’s a problem for the Democrats politically.”
