What I haven’t heard anyone say (except me) is that if voting FOR this bill was not a violation of the Grover Norquist anti-tax pledge because it was technically a vote for a tax DECREASE (since we had already gone over the cliff at midnight 12/31),then voting AGAINST this bill was technically a vote for a tax INCREASE and all those GOP Senate and House members who voted NO violated their pledge. In other words, Norquist can’t have it both ways. If a “Yes” vote was a tax decrease and therefore ok, a fortiori a “No” vote was a tax increase. And Norquist should be flogging those members of Congress who voted against the bill.
