White House Spox: GOPers’ Comments On Norquist Pledge Are ‘Welcome’

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on Monday said congressional Republicans’ public comments distancing themselves from Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge are “welcome.”

“They represent what we hope is a difference in tone and approach to these problems, and a recognition that a balanced approach to deficit reduction is the right approach,” Carney said Monday.
