Former Senator Alan Simpson Says He Wants Grover Norquist To Drown In A Bathtub
The former Wyoming senator is co-chair of President’s debt commission.
The comment was a play on Norquist’s famous statement that he wanted to shrink government “down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub,” and came as Simpson was expressing frustration with Republicans who “didn’t go to Congress to limit government, they came there to stop it.”
“So how do you deal with guys who came to stop government, or Grover wandering the earth in his white robe saying you want to drown government in the bathtub?” Simpson asked during an interview on MSNBC. “I hope he slips in there with it.”
