One Wondrous Sentence: Republicans and taxes

December 5, 2012

This one wondrous sentence, quoting influential right-wing author and activist Brent Bozell, speaks volumes about the pressure on Republican lawmakers not to compromise with President Obama on his desire to raise tax rates for wealthy Americans as the nation approaches the so-called fiscal cliff.

“I will make it my mission to ensure that every conservative donor to the Republican Party that I have worked with for the last three decades—and there are many and they have given tens of millions to Republican causes—gives not one penny more to the Republican Party or any member of Congress that votes for tax increases.”
