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.
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”...
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.
You ascribe more intelligence to the American people that the evidence would otherwise suggest. If Boehner “went away” until March, the media would launch an impeachment effort or something. And Boehner must like all the attention and is going no where. Even whem Obama heads to HI, I think Boehner may stay put in DC.
