Grover Got His Wish, Sort Of
"My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub." - Grover Norquist, May 2001
Grover got his wish a bit sooner than he expected, but not quite the way he described. It's not the government that drowned because of Grover Norquist and his revenue-slashing cronies. A major port city is drowning and an as-yet-unknown number of people are dead because the Busheviks wouldn't provide the funding to strengthen New Orleans' defenses against a natural disaster that experts had repeatedly warned was inevitable. Daily Kos has the details.
What's happening in New Orleans is a tragedy – and it's a crime.
Hold them accountable.
