Norquist: Put fiscal cliff talks on TV

Closed-door negotiations to avert the fiscal cliff haven’t yielded much progress so far, so anti-tax activist Grover Norquist has a suggestion: Put them on TV.

Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform who's become Democrats’ favorite bogeyman, said if President Barack Obama meets with congressional leaders in front of cameras the American people will be able to better judge who is being “reasonable” about compromise.

“It’s the president who is threatening to raise taxes on the middle class if he doesn’t stamp his feet and get his way,” Norquist said Sunday on  NBC's “Meet the Press.” “He should get into a room with C-Span cameras there and negotiate. Lets have it in front of C-Span cameras. And if the Republicans are being reasonable, we’ll see that. If they’re not, we’ll see that. Gotta have cameras in that room.”

I would too.   Funny how we have a President that promised to be so transparent but is  probably the least.  We will not be able to see this.

 That would be great....but then we could SEE them actually doing nothing...or worse yet...witness the good 'ol boy deals that got us in this pickle to begin with.

Isn't he the guy who believes that the Corporate tax rate should be 0%?  It would be interesting to see him and others try to defend that position.

 Well, we have one house that is republican and one house thats dem. These guys need to walk across that aisle and deal or we are going to be frozen for the next 4 years. It's not about party, it's about Americans.

I would too.   Does Ben Nelson and his 300 million dollar good old boy deal ring a bell?

 Where Nebraska's state medicaid is paid fully by the feds? That deal? Speaking of deals to get Obama Care passed there was a lot of horse trading going on. We will never know the full extent. I suspect they gave away the farm. Sigh......
