When addressing the deficit reductionÂ challenges facing the congressional super committee, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid targeted Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist, saying it’s âa shameâ that he is âpresentâ in the committeeâs discussions.

âThe difficulty we find is that in every one of these discussions, Grover Norquist seems to be in the room âŚ he is quite sure that there will be nothing done with tax revenues,â Reid told reporters at the Capitol on Tuesday.
âItâs a shame that Grover Norquist is present in all these meetings we have. I would hope that werenât the case. Iâm hopeful that the Republicans on the Supercommitee will break way from this.â
This is not the first time Reid has specifically criticized Norquist over his influence on Senate Republicans. Last week he said Norquist was leading the GOP like “puppets.”
Norquist reacted to Reidâs comments on Nov. 1 during an interview with The Daily Caller.
