Just hours before the House of Representatives signed off on a bill that staves off the fiscal cliff, Grover Norquist joined "Piers Morgan Tonight" for a live interview with guest host Wolf Blitzer.
Described by Blitzer as an "anti-tax crusader," Norquist offered his interpretation of the proposed deal:
"This is Obama's pound of flesh because he won the presidential election," said the "Americans for Tax Reform" founder and president. "He's the one insisting that taxes go up."
While Blitzer suggested that Republicans supporting the deal would essentially be backing a tax increase, Norquist disagreed and clarified:
"They're not voting for a tax increase, they're voting to save tax cuts for as many people as they can over Obama's objections."
