Host Bob Edwards talks to Grover Norquist, president of the anti-tax group, Americans for Tax Reform, and Robert Kuttner, founder and co-editor of The American Prospect. They discuss Norquist's declaration that Saturday is, "Cost of Government Day." Norquist claims Americans work until this day to pay taxes and to pay for the cost of the federal government. Kuttner says that Norquist's math is askew.
