Grover Norquist Blames Economic Crisis On The 2006 Mid Term Election Results

Guys like Grover Norquist are one of the reason America faces financial ruin. His insane positions on tax cuts and how government should function have resulted in what we have today. He once said:

My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years," he says, "to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub."

He almost succeeded in drowning U.S. citizens instead. Anyway, the Saturday Stock Shows were all freaking out since Obama won the election and their free market, deregulation style has been a disaster, but that won't stop them from crying about how much money the "rich" people are paying in taxes. The guys at Forbes and Cavuto were just screaming "tax cuts" throughout.

While debating David Sirota last week on CNBC, Grover actually said this:

The economy is in the present state because when the Democrats took the House and Senate in 2006, you knew those tax increases were going to come in 2010, the stock market began to collapse as soon as you recognized those old tax rates were coming back.

Why are these people still on our TV? They lie, lie, and lie.,...

Sirtota:

Notice how Norquist - with a straight face - actually claims that the current economic crisis is due to Democrats taking control of Congress in 2006.
