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.”
