Posted on 12/19/2012 12:08:21 PM PST by Perdogg
A very strong statement from Speaker Boehner:
"Tomorrow the House will pass legislation to make permanent tax relief for nearly every American -- 99.81% of the American people. Then the President will have a decision to make. He can call on the Senate Democrats to pass that bill or he can be responsible for the largest tax increase in American history."

The SCOTUS ruled 0bamacare is a TAX. Isn’t 0bamacare the LARGEST TAX HIKE IN HISTORY? WHY DO YOU FORGET THAT, BOEHNER?
Ace of Spades might be the only place Boehner can get his word out. The other news networks are doing the usual full court press on behalf of the Democrats.
We're not being undertaxed. We're being over spent. Remember?
The mantra of all repubs should be “WE CANT TAX OUR WAY OUT OF DEBT”. Say it loud and often because its true. Make the RATS respond to it because they CANT.
To Obama-worshippers “the biggest tax-hike in history” is a good thing.
finally! Who lent Boehner a spine?
“Then the President will have a decision to make. He can call on the Senate Democrats to pass that bill or he can be responsible for the largest tax increase in American history.”
It’s the set up from mid-court so Hussein can slam-dunk it to us.
Hussein WANTS to be known for the “largest tax increase in American history”.
Big Media still worships the Great Clinton for HIS, and credits him for saving the economy with it.
FUJB and your god Hussein, too!
I loved Boehner’s brief speech. He just put it out there and then walked away.
I don’t like plan B at all. First of all, fine lower Social Security by 140 dollars a year. However, I don’t hear a damn thing about lowering welfare receipients 140 dollars a year. Ingrates!!!!
“The mantra of all repubs should be WE CANT TAX OUR WAY OUT OF DEBT.”
How about “If you can’t pass a budget FOR YEARS, how dare you posture and tax us for ANYTHING???
Boehner needs to take a vacation, and stay gone until the end of March. Until then, tens of millions of Americans will see a 50% increase in their taxes. Maybe then they will begin to give a damn about who they elected to be President.
Plan B or tax and spend.

I am STUNNED! Bawling Boy Boehner stood up to Commie Hussein Obama!
[Now if Boehner can just keep from caving-in - - - ].
I'm a fan of the cliff. Even bigger fan of shutting it down in Feb when the debt ceiling needs raising. In the interim, at least, we put something reasonable on the table.
Its all a PR game at this point. No way there is a deal the GOP can stomach. I'm all for this tactic. Hobsons choice!
The mantra of all repubs should be WE CANT TAX OUR WAY OUT OF DEBT.
I like mine better because we need a catchy bumper sticker like phrase that directly counters Obama’s strategy.
I have to keep repeating myself. The offer was made with the complete knowledge that it would rejected. In poker terms, 0bama and Pelosi’s bluff were called. I am no fan of Boehner, but why focus on Boehner? Obama said raise taxes on millionaires but now is rejecting it.
I know it’s popular to beat up on Boehner around here....and I too do not like any of the deals he’s trying to make. However, that all said....I think he is trying to preserve as much of the GWB tax rates as he possibly can and achieve at least some degree of spending restraint.
He has a VERY TOUGH hand to play. The fact that the GWB tax rates were set up to expire within ten years gives him a nearly impossible hand to play. It doesn’t help that BHO was re-elected and that the Dems increased their numbers in both houses of congress.
ANY voter who votes Democrat is voting for higher taxes, more spending, and bigger deficits and bigger government. This is what the voters want, this what they’re going to get. There is little Boehner can do to stop it.
Boner Takes a Stand!
In other words, the countdown clock to a full cave has started.
I have been trying to explain this to some, but people seem to have missed this.
Obama will be proud to pass the largest tax hike in history. And he’ll keep on spending and hiking until the US is kaput.
not only that, but the people that got tax refunds that did not pay any tax at all, will not only not get that, but will end up paying instead...
most affected will be younger people ( who mostly voted for fubo ) single mothers ( who mostly voted for fubo ) and lower wage earners ( who mostly voted for fubo )...
I cannot wait to hear them scream... then when they say it is not fair, i will tell them that instead of 47% not paying taxes, it is now only about 18%..
everyone will be getting hit, how much more fair can it get?
hell, most of these people were not even out of junior high school during the clintoon years..
all I will have to say to them is, “Welcome to my world, pal”...
Plan B has no chance. It will also not change the poll numbers for responsibility. This is actually funny though and I am not sure it could ever happen. This is the one time where Free Republic and the far left agree. Go ahead and go off the cliff. The left thinks Obama has gone to far already. So I guess the question is, do the deal or jump? I think jumping would hurt the republicans more. Passing plan b is kabuki and everyone knows it.
I’ll bet, including me, many wish last years deal or grand bargain would have gone through. Instead we let the perfect be the enemy of the good and gambled on the election. Now any deal done will be far left of that.
We gambled on Mitt Romney. Just let that sink in for a while.
Republican Mantra needs to be “IT’S THE SPENDING, STUPID”
The GOP should leave town and make Obama own it one way or the other.
House Repubs all falling down, and getting concussions, taking time off might work better.
We can’t make him own the economy that he caused for the last 4 years, how are we going to make him own some intangible future event?
If you don’t pay taxes,why care if the rate goes to 100%. No skin off your freeloading nose.
Now this is how it's done finally. I posted a vanity here recommending this weeks ago
Instead of demanding that the R party be the ones to raise taxes on that 99.8 % of voters, ALL Republicans NOW need to call out O for ‘playing politics with middle class taxes’ by rejecting this extension
Now Republicans need to stop whining about the 0.2% who will see the automatic tax increases, and stop joining Pelosi Dems who will vote against this extension, and instead get on to calling O out for fighting to raise ALL OF OUR taxes by opposing this 'B' bill.
I am really convinced that many just love seeing O win these, but I am LONG tired of it.
It would STILL be Bush’s fault to the left and MSM pollutants.
You’re right it doesn’t matter what Boehner says, Republicans will be painted as the party that raised taxes.
The House Republicans should pass a bill That would re-instate the Bush tax cuts, then pass abill de-funding obama care, then passa bill defunding the czars and all cost of these positions, Then foreign aid to Iran, Egypt, etc.These are but a few there should be more with spefic spending cuts and cut all US funding to the UN. Pass these on and let the democrats do as they will. Republicans need to do what’s right and forget about trying to negotiate with the democrats.
Then what is the solution? The only solution is a bad deal over a rotten deal or do nothing.
Now, they are lined up to bitchslap the Pubbies in the House.
It seems that Boehner has been reading my posts...and wants to keep his job.
Oh Pleeeze Tammy Faye. Obama just came out and said he and Boehner are close to a deal. That means Boehner has caved.
I SAY LET SEQUESTRATION HAPPEN!!
NONE OF THESE COWARDS HAS THE GUTS TO CUT SPENDING OTHERWISE
Damn... FINALLY. Now, Congresscritters, pass the effing bill, get it to the drones in the Senate, go home for the holidays and hug your kids!
The Republicans should take a page out of the Democrat playbook and scream this over and over, “President Obama and the senate Democrats are WAGING A WAR ON CHILDREN by putting all of this debt on our children’s credit cards”.
Not to mention:
1) They refuse to allow school vouchers thereby imprisoning poor kids in lousy schools dooming families for generations
2)What the Democrats ultimately REALLY want is federally funded partial birth abortion.
IT’S A WAR ON OUR CHILDREN!
Don’t just say it once, John. Repeat it repeatedly.
The communist from Kenya has a big pulpit. Make every statement about Obama raising taxes...AND HAVE EVERY Republican repeat that in every press event.
My understanding is that this plan does nothing more than extend the Bush rates for <$1M of income for everyone, it doesnt cancel the automatic spending cuts, or extend the debt limit. It is exactly what O doesnt want.
A few weeks ago I posted a vanity explaining that Bohner has to do exactly this.
Republicans cannot make themselves the middle class tax raisers(which O gets to spend yet) , that is suicide. They tried that exactly a year ago with FICA and it was a disaster.
Believe me, if House Republicans take suicidal stances you will hate the terms of surrender to O that they end up signing.
Let Pelosi Dems vote against this, to raise our taxes, that is what they want anyway.
So are you saying you believe 0bama and not Boehner? I am not saying that Boehner is telling the truth. He could be distorting. 0bama is lying.
You seem to be saying 0bama is telling the truth and Boehner is a liar. They may both be liars. But 0bama telling the truth is not possible.
“...he can be responsible for the largest tax increase in American history...”
Note to Speaker Boehner: OBAMA DOES NOT CARE. Understand? Let me repeat: OBAMA DOES NOT CARE.
Exactly. Democrats have railed against the Bush tax cuts for a decade now, using it as the foundation of their class warfare rhetoric. It's time we made them own it.
I vote for Plan A.
I see your $100 billion and raise you $1 trillion more. Forget sequestration. Let's refuse to raise the debt ceiling instead. No more borrowing means no more $1.1 trillion in deficit spending for the current fiscal year. It's time to begin putting the padlocks on some government buildings.
We will go over the fiscal cliff. Then, after about two months of Americans experiencing reduced paychecks, Obama will propose tax “cuts”.
They will then become the “Obama tax cuts” and the words “Bush tax cuts” will never be uttered again.
Obama is not going to budge on this until March.
Doesn’t matter. It’s a mantra, just intended to be repeated continuously, it doesn’t have to be literally true, because by the time the correction is explained the eyes of the average voter will have glazed over. We’re finally learning to fight like the left does.
All together now: “LARGEST TAX HIKE IN HISTORY”.
