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.
