Letters: Resisting the anti-tax pledge

May 24, 2012

Re "GOP hopefuls could sidestep tax orthodoxy," May 19

Hooray for the candidates who are willing to stand up to Grover Norquist by refusing to sign his anti-tax pledge. We need more brave souls in the GOP who want to compromise rather than obstruct.

As for those Republicans who have already signed the pledge to never vote for tax increases, I challenge you to do your part: refuse to take a government salary, benefits or use expense accounts. Doing so won't cost voters anything if you support a tax increase because you can say you eliminated an expense. How about it?
