    In a sure sign that Romney et al will raise taxes (probably on the middle and working class), a number of Republican office holders and candidates have been refusing to sign Grover "I should be drowned in a bathtub" Norquist anti-tax pledge.

    The most recent is Jeb Bush who told the a House Committee that:

    "The pledge was presented to me three times. I never signed the pledge. I cut taxes every year I was governor. I don’t believe you outsource your principles and convictions to people."

    This made little Grover lose his shit on CNN:

    "[Bush] went on to kind of insult Governor Romney because Governor Romney has made a written commitment to the American people said, ‘when I get to Washington I’m not going to raise taxes."

    See the video:



    What this tells me is, despite Romney's signature, that the RNC knows that there is no way to balance the budget or engage in deficit reduction without raising taxes.
