Norquist Says Support for "Plan B" Not a Violation of Pledge

The powerful anti-tax advocacy group Americans for Tax Reform said Wednesday that it would not consider a vote for Speaker John Boehner’s “Plan B”  a violation of the Taxpayer Protection Pledge many Republican members of Congress have signed. 

“Republicans supporting this bill are this week affirming to their constituents in writing that this bill—the sole purpose of which is to prevent tax increases—is consistent with the pledge they made to them,” ATR said in a statement.  “In ATR’s analysis, it is extremely difficult—if not impossible—to fault these Republicans’ assertion.”
