Antitax crusader Grover Norquist told CNBC on Wednesday that Jeb Bush should vow not to raise taxes, saying history shows that presidents who fail to make the promise are doomed to raise them.

"If you put taxes on the table, as Bush's dad did in 1990, he got no spending cuts. None, none, none. It was all tax increases," Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, said in a "Squawk Box" interview.

Jeb Bush has not signed Americans for Tax Reform's Taxpayer Protection Pledge. Politicians who do so agree to oppose tax increases.
