|Republican lawmakers who vote for tax increases are "rat heads in a Coke bottle," anti-tax activist and UBER::LOBBYIST Grover Norquist said during a speech Friday at the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference, a conservative gathering where he was a featured speaker.
Last week, Norquist called Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval a "rat" for supporting tax increases. This week, Norquist expanded the attack, saying that the same way Coca-Cola would lose customers if a rat head was found in a Coke bottle, Republicans voting for tax increases "damage the brand." Instead, Norquist said, the GOP needs conservatives like former President Ronald Reagan who oppose taxes at all costs. [Good, now we can Reagan a 'rat head' without Rove and Limbaugh calling us commie socialists?]
