    Saxby Chambliss: 'I Care A Lot More About' America Than About Grover Norquist

    "Norquist has no plan to pay this debt down. His plan says you continue to add to the debt, and I just have a fundamental disagreement about that and I'm willing to do the right thing and let the political consequences take care of themselves."
    Thoughts?

    This! Glad it's someone from Georgia as well. Norquist is a jackass, and should be told that many times over.

    Any credible fiscal consolidation plan will need to include an increase in revenue. Mandatory spending reforms, discretionary spending savings, and a degree of revenue increases are all needed to tackle the nation's long-term fiscal imbalances. The nation is no longer in a position to make meaningful progress in stabilizing and then reducing its debt as a share of GDP or in absolute terms without increasing revenue. The idealistic hope of "growing its way" out of its deficits is not viable. Senator Chambliss's position is a realistic one.

    His taking such a stance does not mean he would agree to any tax hike, but if a share of tax increases are part of a larger credible deficit reduction package, he would support it.

    Just one: Screw Norquist.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Perhaps I am too jaded, but I don't see how is does this without a political upside...but I cannot, for the life of me, determine what that upside is?

    There's always looking out for the best interests of the country first and foremost. A quality we should all demand in our politicians, but seems all too absent these days.

    It still baffles me that this Norquist clown was able to gain so much influence to begin with.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Chambliss is an opportunistic douche.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Thats pretty much it. This country doesn't have a revenue problem, the wealthy (both individuals and corporations) shoulder the lion share of federal contributions. We have a spending problem.

    Frankly, I like the compromise floating around. Tax rates will return to the Clinton era as a long as spending does the same. Is that a "balanced approach?"
