What The Hell Are Grover Norquist and Bruce Bartlett Talking About?

As Paul Bremer institutes a flat tax in Iraq, the Washington Post reports: "It's extremely good news," said Grover Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform and a Bush administration ally. Bremer's vaguely worded edict leaves open the possibility that Iraqis could face different levels of taxation below 15 percent, but "they told me it's a flat rate and it appears as though it's a flat rate," Norquist said. The tax fighter added: "It might be a hint to the rest of us."

Cheering as an invading power imposes "taxation without representation" on a whole country with the stroke of a pen? I'm horrified. It's no wonder these clowns haven't made any progress reducing taxes in the U.S. Even if the system is less complex and more efficient than previously, who the hell wants a government to be more efficient at expropriation?
