Lindsey Graham: 'I Will Violate The Pledge' To Not Increase Taxes

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he opposes raising income tax rates, but that he is open to increasing tax revenue by reducing the availability of deductions for things like charitable giving and mortgage interest. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)

Doing so would violate Grover Norquist's "Taxpayer Protection Pledge," which both men have signed (as have most Republicans in Congress). Under the pledge, "candidates and incumbents solemnly bind themselves to oppose any and all tax increases," according to the Americans for Tax Reform site.

This is Lindsey Graham we are talking about. This isn't news, it's just normal behavior. Seriously, the same liars get elected and people should be surprised when they keep lying?
