On Tuesday, moderate Republican Congressman Steve LaTourette announced he won't seek re-election saying that Republicans must now hand over "your wallet and your voting card" to the extreme Tea Party wing in order to get ahead.
Today he lashed out at Grover Norquist and COngress as a whole:
WASHINGTON -- Retiring Rep. Steve LaTourette (R-Ohio) offered scathing assessments Thursday of Congress and of the tax policy pushed on his party by anti-tax hardliner Grover Norquist.
Congress, LaTourette said, is like a drunk who needs to hit bottom in order to straighten out. While Republicans and Democrats share blame for that, he especially singled out the arguments of Norquist and his group Americans for Tax Reform, calling them "crap."
