Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist has made no secret of his ultimate goal. He has famously said he wants to shrink government "to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub." Norquist's "taxpayer protection pledge," which asks candidates to commit to opposing all tax increases, has been signed by 219 House members and 39 senators, as well as more than 1,000 state officeholders. We'll talk to Norquist about the current budget battles in Washington and the future of the Republican Party.
