Grover: from PA heds to fake news

Published by Laura Olson on .

As he continues to make news amid the state budget debate, Americans for Tax Reform's Grover Norquist chatted with fake news host Stephen Colbert last night.

Colbert talked to Norquist about his group's infamous pledge against tax hikes (which Colbert signed when he was "running" for president in 2008). While Gov. Corbett has gotten flak for signing the pledge, which critics say makes him beholden to whatever Norquist says works under that promise, Norquist says it's supposed to be between the people and the politician.

"The pledge is not to Americans for Tax Reform, it's to the people of their state," Norquist said. "People hold them responsible."
