Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) on Friday suggested that Republicans were outsourcing their “principles and convictions” by signing Grover Norquist’s pledge to never raise taxes.
During a House Budget Committee hearing, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) asked the former governor if he agreed with the Americans for Tax Reform pledge.
“No,” Bush said, shaking his head. “OK, so I ran for office three times. The pledge was presented to me three times. I never signed the pledge. I cut taxes every year I was governor.”
