Letter of Day (Dec. 29): Grover Norquist and Wayne LaPierre

  • December 28, 2012 - 7:19 PM

I find an interesting commonality between the antitax guru Grover Norquist and Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association ("Gun lobby counts on our complacence," Dec. 21).

Both men are unelected, middle-aged, white, far-right conservatives with extreme agendas. They both believe that the Republican congressional caucus must seek their approval to address the serious issues facing this country.

These men do not represent the American public, and certainly should not be controlling Congress by threatening electoral retaliation if our country doesn't knuckle under to their will.
