Thank God I am no millionaire. A FLAT TAX is still the answer, why do they avoid discussing this issue??? RINO's must stop caving in.
Pay close attention to which house members vote for Boehner in next month's election for speaker, don't forget who they are and don't forgive them. These people are building the tyranny your children will have to suffer under.
I've come up with a new plan. I say all politicians take a 90% pay cut and have their pension benefits suspended until we get a balanced budget. I mean all politicians - Democrats, Republicans, RINO's and Progressives alike.
What I mean by a balanced budget is a one year revenue/expenditure balance. None of this one year revenue increase and 10 year spending cut crap that they always pull on us. None of this "let's have our revenue increases now and maybe, just maybe, we'll think about cuts next year - or the year after that". Balanced, like my budget.
Let's see if that doesn't put a fire under their a$$es to get something constructive done. Nah, just keep playing, boys. The clock is ticking.
I'm done with the entire rino party. It's time to move on. These politicians are all useless pieces of garbage.
Boehner is worse than Obama. At least O is honest about his agenda. Boehner talks out of both sides of his mouth. Dump Boehner from GOP leadership!!!!!!!!!!!
There is a basic commonality between Obama and Boenher. Before either of them opens their mouth, you know exactly what you are going to hear.
Boehner will sell us down the river while the media and WH distract us on gun control. Watch both of Boehner's hands and Barky Boy's hands, they are colluding against us.
I am not sure how reliable this is but if it is. Spread the word http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=mLUqGcsSCts
Boehner is a treasonous crap weasel who is determined to had control of the House to the Dems in 2014. Impeach him NOW!!!!
Contact your representative and tell him to either abstain or vote against him as speaker next month. Boehner needs 218 votes to be speaker. Tell your representative that you'll hold him responsible for Boehner's actions if he supports him.
Seniority. He sabotaged Allen West and others. Cantor is just as bad. He follows Boehner around as though he's a puppy on a short leash. Boehner will destroy the GOP this year. They no longer deserve the support of Conservatives/Constitutionalists. They are finished. I predict this old guard won't win another election.
I usually go with Mark Levin's advice about voting for the primary candidate. I will no longer do that. If we are going to lose, I would rather give a good third party choice, a shot. I'm finished with the GOP.
I was once a Democrat, once an Independent, and once a Republican. I'm now a Constitutionalist. If there isn't one running, I won't vote.
Tweeted this to Cantor today:
@GOPLeader When will U have a moment of silence for the America you bankrupted & the future generations you are trying to further bankrupt?
Crickets in return.
Boehner may be proposing but it will take a full House vote. He doesn't have the vote to raise the tax rates and hopefully not to raise the debt ceiling either. I say let's go over the cliff and point fingers directly at Barky and Harry Reid for not taking up ANY of the House bills.
I hear that lil-man-in-chief have successfully raise a crop of cricket farm among the RINOs . The only thing we may be able to hear from them now are the damages from the libs policies the RINOS approved of, then chirps !
Email, call and tweet your Rep. Tell them you will support Dem if they don't vote against all bills that increase rates and if they don't vote against Boehner for SOH
good. Since the wealthy are sitting on their cash and not hiring anyone then they can contribute more in taxes for all the people who are out of work and need help. Would they rather have someone work for their money or give it to them and not work? Small business is hurting but big business sure isn't. They are hiring temps and cheap labor. They're a bunch of greedy bas*ards. I read a report several months ago that said exec pay, bonuses and benefits had went up even though the economy was in the toilet. No sympathy from me.
If the re-election of Obama (by virtue of the "tipping point" being reached, 50.1% of people are either stupid, on the dole, or both) didn't seal the deal for the Republicans becoming a permanent minority party, Boehner will take care of it before the year is out.
The GOP should be getting fitted for their Whigs. 'Cause that's where this is all headed.
It’s just a matter of time before he sells out the Republican Party completely.
Yes, it is only a matter of time. Boehner belongs to long line of these types, starting with Bush I, Bush II, Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist, James Jeffords, Lisa Murky, etc. Our side has been plagued by these people who simply cannot wait to sell out our side.
Does anyone ever see Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid doing this? Did we see it after Bush won re-election? Heck, Reid was threatening NOT to work with Romney if he won.
Why is our side so weak? Is it b/c they don't have the strength to fight the media, Dems and the popular culture?
I wonder if Boehner would sell us out if he received unlimited access to the tanning salon of his choice?
Dear god! Can we merge the parties into the Democratic Party already? There is nothing that separates Repubics from Dems anymore. After they merge, we have to advance the Tea Party full throttle.
Can we please throw out this drunken fool as Speaker of the House? Really? We have a house majority and this is the best they could do....more of the same failed policies and still no budget? Am I the only one who feels like this is the movie, "Ground Hog Day", where the same useless garbage keeps happening over and over, but in this case, the damage gets worse and worse?! We, the American people are tired of watching these fools get paid to completely disregard our values, so that they can continue to waste our tax payer dollars! IT'S BEEN 5 YEARS...WHERE IS YOUR BUDGET?!!!! I have one and you're going waaaaayyyyyy over it!
Keep it up, Boehner, you are almost there.
Obama will get everything he wants from you without lifting a finger.
I'm certain many will disagree, but I don't believe Speaker Boehner caved on tax rates. This is very apparent by the quick rejection by Obama to the Speaker's new proposal.
In addition to the higher tax rates proposed by Boehner, it also included the speaker’s previous offer to cut several hundred billion dollars in tax breaks used by upper-income Americans. More important, the new proposal by the speaker would have trim spending by $1 trillion over the course of the same decade.
Obama will NOT agree to cut spending by $1 trillion. And he still wants wants to raise tax rates on singles earning over $200,000 and families who earn over $250,000 a year. IMO, by proposing raising taxes on those earning above $1 million - originally proposed by liberal Sen Charles Schumer (D-NY) - the proposal will remain UNACCEPTABLE to Obama and thus, places the GOP in a better position with regards to the falling off the 'fiscal cliff' in 2 weeks. Most Americans don't believe earning $250,000/year is rich.
The House/Speaker have put tangible proposals on the table while Obama has rejected them all. With this political negotiating maneuver, the ball and the 'blame-game' lies with the President and Democrats.
Obama wants to humiliate Republicans and his willing to let the nation go off the FISCAL CLIFF because he's a petulant narcissistic child.
I agree in large part! My only disagreement is that the majority of Americans don't believe earning $250,000/year is rich. Yes they do because the majority are members of the gimmecrat party.
It's a quick rejection b/c Obama knows he can get everything he wants. Why compromise or bargain? He won the election.
Your last two paragraphs will not see the light of day, as far as the media narrative is concerned. The story is that Republicans want to protect rich people and are obstinate to a fault. Obama is the good guy, and Boehner has ceded some very important ground to him. He has already accepted the "rich paying their fair share" argument.
You're correct PhillyCon; the real point I was making is I believe that Speaker Boehner made this proposal with full knowledge that it would be rejected by Obama. Up to this point, Obama's strategery has been the specious spin that the GOP wanting to protect rich Americans at the expense of the middle-class.
The President wants the sequestration deal, aka fiscal cliff, to become the law of the land. And more than half of Americans agree with Obama on raising taxes on the so-called rich - singles earning over $200,000 and families who earn over $250,000 a year.
Thus, these Americans will most likely get their wishes granted. But when the full impact of sequestration starts a new and stronger recession, the lost of millions of jobs and the poor and middle-class get hit with a big tax increase, it will be Obama and Democrats who will suffer their wrath in 2014 and 2016 IMO.
