Jeb Bush ‘Will Not Sign Any Pledges’ in 2016

Anti-taxman Grover Norquist recently told ABC News he believes Jeb Bush will likely sign his no-new-taxes pledge if and when he officially becomes a candidate for president.

But, as Dana Carvey might say, “Not gonna happen.”

Norquist may have had good reason to believe Bush would sign the Taxpayers Protection Pledge, where candidates vow to oppose “any and all efforts to increase taxes.” After all, the vast majority of Republican candidates for national office and many for local and statewide office have been signing it ever since Norquist started Americans for Tax Reform in 1985.

    Any Republican politician willing to go up against Norquist has a shot at national office. Anti-Norquist = guts + leadership + independent thinking. You hated Obama for bowing to the Saudi king? How about Republican politicians who bow down to Norquist? If you want sheep in office, vote for those politicians signing the Norquist pledge.

    And so,once again yet another member of the infamous corrupt incompetent Bush Crime Family Baby Bush Jeb Bush has started to publically display the same type of total arrogance that dear old Daddy George H W Bush and then George W Bush displayed and contempt for the voters!

      So true, Ralph! I wonder why Fox News seems to be pushing Bush’s candidacy? Maybe it’s just my take, but it seems that he is being interviewed more than any other candidate!

    I heard the senior President Bush say ( read my lips-no new taxes) still raised
    taxes.

    Grover’s days may well be over. People have found they do not want to be committed to anything on paper so that they can lie freely
