Jeb Bush OK with tax hike in debt deal

• The Hill
Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, said Friday that he could back a broad deficit plan that increased taxes, a stance that puts him at odds with other prominent Republicans.

Bush told a House panel he could get behind a plan that combined 10 dollars in spending cuts for every dollar of new revenue, and also noted that he did not sign the anti-tax pledge administered by Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform when he ran for governor in the Sunshine State.
