Why did 100% of all Republicans in the US Senate vote against The American Jobs Act? This bill would create around 1.9 million jobs and raise the GDP by two points. It is also fully paid for by increasing the tax rate on the top 1%. If 66% of Americans believe we should increase the taxes on the top 1%, why is there so much deadlock in Congress?
Would you believe it is because of one man, this man, Grover Norquist?
It is time that We the People take Our country back from the obstructionists who have no desire to honor the will of the people but instead cater to the will of Grover Norquist. Below we have listed a copy of the pledge along with a list of those in the 112th Congress and the sitting state legislators who have signed this pledge. We have also included links on how to contact these politicians to remind them that they serve the People not Norquist.
Here is a copy of the single page that is obstructing our government!
