Hensarling now wishes he took the previous deal. Cry baby RINO's. They had the opportunity to fix this problem but they chose to gamble. Obama just flat out maneuvered them. Its like losing an live auction and going up to the buyer minutes later wanting that deal. The answer is always.... "Yeah I will do a deal with ya but not at that price". This is exactly how Republicans lost the Presidential Election. The party is being run by a bunch of RINO and needs complete house cleaning. How about a new platform..... Say what you mean and Mean what you say.

“...put “significant entitlement reform” on the table.”

That’s it? And to think that whores at least want to see the money upfront before they get under the table.

The morons running the GOP don’t know jack about actual political power.

There’s a way to out-fox Obama even now. Agree to tax increases... and then tax the hell out of Obama’s constituency groups.

The Republicans can give Obama exactly what he claims he wants - and then structure the details so that it hits universities, hedge funds, Wall Streeters, insurance companies, and even St. Warren Buffett directly. They’ll howl like stuck pigs, but the GOP could come back and say “Well, Mr. Buffett was complaining that his taxes were too low, so we raised them... just like he asked!”

But no. The GOP adheres to their stupid “pledge” and hard-line position to play to some idiot lobby like Norquist and his merry band of know-nothings.

Me too. If old people ON THIS SITE insist that they get THEIR WELFARE (i.e., Social Security and Medicare), then YES, it’s time to start paying the bills.

I’ve given up on the concept that older conservatives give a damn about the future of this country - I’ve dealt with more than my fair share of them, ON THIS SITE, that seem to think their Social Security money is sitting in the bank somewhere, just waiting for them to withdraw it.

Sure, they know of the $16T debt...but as long as they cash out, before “cashing out”, it doesn’t make a damn bit of difference to them. So I’m HAPPY to see that Republicans are finally getting on board and, at least, trying to come up with money for these TAKERS, rather than passing it on to my kids, who had NOTHING TO DO with this mess.

So.... GOP... how are you feeling about throwing real conservatives under the bus and giving us a Sen. Donnelly and a return of Sen. McCaskill?

That worked out GREAT didn’t it?

And now we have the RINOs folding like a cheap card table. This is getting tiresome. We had 6 years of Repub Congress and POTUS in the 2000s and a chance to end deficits and eliminate the debt. These Repubs set the precendent and BHO is now running with it.

Can we just for ONCE back genuine conservatives? Herman Cain for Senate ‘14!!!

The handwriting is on the wall. Once again, the (R)s will accept REAL tax hikes NOW, in exchange for vague promises of spending reduction and entitlement reform “discussions” “over the next decade”.

Republican politicians are fools not to point out the
hard truth about Democrat tax increases. And, that truth
is that the Democrats know that the big money lies in
the hands of the middle class but until the upper class
has been tapped out, the middle class will not accept
a tax increase. Once the tax has been increased on the
wealthy the road is clear to raise middle class taxes.

Why is it that Obama wants a tax rate increase rather
than a closure of “loopholes” on the wealthy to ac-
complish the same thing? I believe that a tax rate
increase on the rich makes for a much more effective
visual to sell to the middle class when the Democrats
come after them. And, why is it that we seldom hear
Republicans talk about growing the economy as the best
way to increase revenues? They’re just a bunch of fools.

The comments on FR for this article is all you need to know why taxes will go up. Entitlements are the number one driver of our budget deficits. Yet even here if someone calls for reigning them in you get a bunch of freepers demanding they get to keep their government run healthcare.

If they are all so eager to accept tax increases then just go over the fiscal cliff and they will get the tax increases and the spending cuts. No need to negotiate.

The GOP seems to forget that they agreed to all this last year. Now that its time to eat their peas maybe they wish they had stood firm on the last go around.

Flat tax. Remove ALL loopholes.

Eliminate corporate welfare and 90% of all foreign aid.

Cut back entitlement growth to the rate of inflation. Eliminate Departments of Energy, Commerce and Education.

Budget problem solved.

Republican Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) told me Sunday on ABC News' "This Week" that he is willing to accept tax rate increases as a component of a fiscal cliff deal, as long as Democrats put "significant entitlement reform" on the table.

The you need to leave office, Coburn.
