Peter King: I Completely Agree with Saxby Chambliss

by Patrick Brennan

New York representative Peter King indicated great willingness to make a deal about revenue increases on Meet the Press this morning, saying that he “completely agree[s]” with comments by Senator Saxby Chambliss (R., Ga.) this past week that Grover Norquist’s “20-year-old pledge” is no longer their guiding principle. He explained that “everything should be on the table” and “we should not take ironclad positions.”

King indicated that he would follow Speaker Boehner’s lead on the negotiations, saying “I have faith in John Boehner.” He asserted that it was especially necessary “to show the world we’re adults; the election is over.”
