Top Republican Senator ditches Norquist anti-tax pledge

A top Republican senator is casting aside an anti-tax pledge he signed, saying that solving the country’s looming fiscal crisis is more important than honoring the decades-old pact.

You are exactly correct.

And, I have a bridge to sell anyone that believes we are not already “over the fiscal cliff”.

Our “normal” legislative processes cannot and will not FIX our problems. Half the folks want the other half to support them! It’s as simple as that!

The only question is: “How long will we?”

Saxby is the former Colquitt County (GA) Democrat Party chairman, FYI - a long time ago, but I think it lingers.
