I am arguing that the ideology behind Grover Norquist's pledge [1] is not sound economics.

In this debate, Pro must agree to the following interpretation of the ideology behind the tax pledge, along with the definition following: that raising taxes is unconditionally poor economic policy and lower/not changing taxes is unconditionally good economic policy.

Unconditional - Without conditions or limitations; absolute [2]

Round 1 is for acceptance.
Round 2 is for opening arguments - no rebuttals.
Round 3 is for rebuttals. No new arguments may be submitted.
Round 4 is for closing arguments. No new arguments can be submitted.
