Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist says he disagrees with those Republicans who want to get rid of tax deductions to help reduce the deficit.

“I’m not in favor of that because the problem we have in the country is the government spends too much money,” he tells Newsmax TV.

“The problem is not that the government doesn’t get enough tax dollars from the American people. It gets plenty of tax dollars; it just doesn’t have spending restrained enough.

“We need to get spending down. Every dollar in tax increase interferes with getting spending down.”
