This is not going to be enough and the Republican conformist mob hasn't started their attacks yet.

Reuters reported earlier this week that at least 16 Republicans in the new Congress have forgone the pledge, up from only six in the outgoing Congress. Sen.-elect Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) also promised to opt out, though there is some confusion over whether he had already signed the pledge as a congressman.

Despite these recent jabs from high-profile Republicans, Norquist argues that his hold on the GOP remains strong. The New York Times reported this week that Norquist counts "219 House members -- enough for a majority -- and 39 senators" as having committed to the pledge.
