I'm not aware of who Grover Norquist is, which is odd since I pay attention to the goings-on in the legislature, but I am going to go out on a limb and say I highly doubt they "swore fealty" to him. I have never heard John Boehner explicitly state that he equates closing loopholes with a tax hike. If he does then he is flat incorrect because it isn't.
Not heard of Grover Norquist? Either you are being sarcastic or you haven't been paying attention to the discussion around raising taxes in the US. I barely pay attention and I know of him and why despite not being a member of government why he is part of the discussion around revenue increases.

Why would I suddenly start being sarcastic after discussing this seriously all this time? I honestly didn't know of the guy. I pay less attention to the tax discussion simply because I believe that ethically and morally speaking, before we start taking more of other peoples' money I think we have an obligation of reigning in spending and eliminating the disgusting amount of waste in government. In my opinion that needs toncome first, and the Democrats just won't get on board.

Democrats are on board with cuts, but they want revenue increases as well. We need both to get things going the right direction without screwing over the middle class and plunging the economy back into recession. The Republicans refuse, and have been obstructing any attempt at a deal. Hopefully you at least see that much now, and see why most of them are doing it.
