Hear Matt Laslo's radio story about how Grover Norquist's Taxpayer Protection Pledge has a hold on the GOP.
WASHINGTON - Grover Norquist may not be a household name. He’s never been elected to public office, just some conservative boards like the National Rifle Association and others.
But Norquist is viewed as a powerhouse in Washington. He’s gotten 238 House members and 41 senators to sign his pledge saying they’ll never raise taxes – that includes virtually every single Republican member of Congress from Florida.
Only 13 Republicans in Congress have refused to sign his Taxpayer Protection Pledge.
