Anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist on MSNBC Wednesday insisted that Republicans who supported the fiscal cliff deal did not vote to increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans. "No Republican voted for a tax increase," Norquist said.
"Wait a second," Andrea Mitchell said. "I mean, we're not living in the 'Alice in Wonderland' world here. There is a tax increase for wealthier Americans. It's literally a tax increase."
Technically, it's not, Norquist said. "What happened yesterday was, all the tax rates went up, and then the Republicans and the Congress together took them down for some people, not for everybody."
