Grover Norquist
Grover Norquist (2010)

Grover Glenn Norquist (* 19. Oktober 1956 in Sharon, Pennsylvania) ist der Präsident der US-amerikanischen Interessenvertretung Americans for Tax Reform.

Er hat seit 1986 fast allen Abgeordneten der Republikanischen Partei das Gelöbnis abgenommen, niemals die Steuern zu erhöhen.[1] Diese Politik führte zur Haushaltskrise 2011. Norquist hält dies nicht für ein Problem, sondern sieht darin eine „Chance für alle Steuerzahler“. Nun sei die Regierung endlich gezwungen, die Ausgaben des Staates deutlich zu reduzieren.[1] Einen möglichen Kompromiss, große Einsparungen mit auch nur minimalen Steuererhöhungen zu verknüpfen, lehnt er strikt ab.[2]

Norquist war 1998 maßgeblich an der Präsidentschaftskandidatur von George W. Bush beteiligt.[3]
