Minnesota Senate Candidate Talks Tough on Deficit

September 19, 2012

Minnesota GOP Senate nominee Kurt Bills wants to cut the deficit any way he can -- even if he has to fight Americans for Tax Reform president Grover Norquist to do it.

Bills expressed his support for a Simpson Bowles-type debt compromise Monday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported. "I will vote for the compromise, no matter what it is," Bills said. "I don't care if I have to have a verbal or physical confrontation with Grover Norquist."

According to ATR's website, Bills has signed Norquist's pledge against raising taxes, but is apparently backtracking on that position. Bills's campaign did not return a request for comment.

The high school economics teacher has made deficit reduction the focal point of his campaign. In one web video, he uses corn kernels in a jar to illustrate the amount of deficit added since Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar took office.
