Grover Norquist weighs in on the latest CBO report

The Congressional Budget Office predicts that if Congress doesn’t vote to stop the automatic tax increases and spending cuts that start on January 1, 2013, the United States could topple off a “fiscal cliff” and back into a recession.

Despite these warnings, Congress can't seem to agree on how to address the problem.

On Starting Point today, Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform and author of "Debacle," explains how he thinks that Congress can prevent the economy from falling back into a recession, reiterating his refusal to increase taxes.
