"Norquist: GOP is going to run against the stimulus for another five years."
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (R), who broke with his party to publicly endorse President Obama’s recovery package this week, is under attack from conservatives. Conservative icon Grover Norquist admonished Crist for supporting the stimulus, saying that Crist shouldn’t oppose a bill that the GOP will be using as a political tool for years to come:
Grover Norquist, the influential conservative leader of Americans for Tax Reform, said Crist should have been wary about embracing an 800-page bill he probably had not read and stands to be loaded with unpopular spending provisions that will surface over coming weeks and months.
“This is the bill that the Republican Party will be running against in 2010 and 2012 and 2014,” Norquist predicted.
