While appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning, Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) president Grover Norquist got in a spat with Lawrence O’Donnell over whether the ATR chief would ever advocate voting against raising the debt ceiling. “You’re saying there are situations where you do think default would be okay?” O’Donnell asked. “It’s possible,” replied Norquist, who went on to reiterate that his organization is against raising taxes. Watch it:
Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) admitted yesterday that “a lot” of House Republicans want to push the country into default in order to create “chaos” and push through conservative priorities.
