Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform who's become
Democratsâ€™ 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 â€śreasonableâ€ť about compromise.
â€śItâ€™s the president who is threatening to raise taxes on the middle class if he doesnâ€™t stamp his feet and get his way,â€ť Norquist said Sunday on NBC's â€śMeet the Press.â€ť â€śHe 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, weâ€™ll see that. If theyâ€™re not, weâ€™ll see that. Gotta have cameras in that room.â€ť
