Grover Norquist, Conservative Tax Activist, Speaking in Maine

Apr 4, 2017

The man once dubbed “the high priest of Republican tax cutting” is speaking in Maine tonight.

Grover Norquist is president of Americans for Tax Reform, a group he created in 1985 to oppose all tax increases and advocate for a simpler, flatter structure.

More recently Norquist has been talking about how the conservative House Freedom Caucus could still play a role in repealing the Affordable Care Act, and also in reducing taxes.

Norquist spoke with Keith Shortall about the importance of dealing with both issues in the proper order, something he believes was lost on some members of Congress.
