Grover Norquist – Beltway’s Clint Eastwood by Ted Nugent

In an effort to control spending, Dirty Harry Norquist has got GOP politicians in a tax stranglehold by requesting each of them sign a pledge to never vote to raise taxes. That rocks. I recommend they also be requested to sign a pledge to slash spending at every opportunity.

The Dirty Harry of tax and government reform is Grover Norquist.

Dirty Harry Norquist, president of Americans For Tax Reform (, has never seen a tax increase he supports, which should immediately put him at the head of the line for a Presidential Medal of Freedom once Mitt Romney is elected. If there was a Hall of Fame of Common Sense, a huge statue of Grover Norquist would at be the front door.

Dirty Harry Norquist and crew released their “2012 Cost of Government Day” report, which would be more aptly titled “2012 Fedzilla Slopfest Report.”

ATR’s report states that the ordinary American has to work until July 15 to pay for the cost of local, state and federal government, which means that government beast known as Fedzilla consumes more than 50 cents of every dollar we earn and then borrows and spends hundreds of billions more each year that we don’t have.

Fedzilla is growing fatter, less accountable and less transparent by gorging itself on our tax dollars. Instead of tightening Fedzilla’s fiscal belt, government bureaucrats just buy him bigger belts and suspenders, and he gets fatter and smellier each day. The only good pig is a dead pig.
