GOP anti-tax ideology meets the real world

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

It's easy to spout off about being anti-tax when you are in Washington because you then get to pass the buck to the state and local level. What's interesting to see here is that there are GOP governors across the US, even in GOP strongholds such as Colorado and Alabama, that are facing budget realities and raising taxes. Voters want what is normal, such as roads and schools and while the GOP might also view those programs as socialist, voters see things differently.

Blowhards such as Grover Norquist may not like it and can delcare their political careers over but maybe he's the one who just can't see straight. Lay off the Kool-Aid Grover and listen to the voters.
