We don’t have a tax problem, it’s the ridiculous spending that’s sending the country into a black hole!
Now it’s time to primary Chambliss and any other GOPer that don’t have the cajones to stand on principle. We have too many soft, politically conscious Republicans in Washington that are nothing but dead weight.
A top Republican senator is casting aside an anti-tax pledge he signed, saying that solving the country’s looming fiscal crisis is more important than honoring the decades-old pact.
Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., broke ranks with otherconservatives Wednesday when he made the remarks to a local television station. Chambliss is a member of the Gang of Six, a bipartisan group of senators tasked with finding a solution to the country's fiscal woes.
"I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge," he told WMAZ-TV. "If we do it his way then we’ll continue in debt, and I just have a disagreement with him about that."
