I agree with Grover. 99 beats the 1, but spending is the problem so nothing short of a govt shutdown is acceptable. We lose in all other scenarios. A shutdown shines light on lots of things and might help with a reality check.
If Bonehead’s sell out is something your tax group will support alone with your Moslem coddling, it is long past time for Conservatives to DISOWN you. I wipe the dust from my sandals and walk away. ATR is no more.
I would not hold my breath waiting real spending cuts.
This country will collapse before any country saving cuts are made.
To many special interest groups unwilling to give up anything.
We borrow 46 cents out of every dollar we spend.
How long do u think that will hold up?
This might be the best way to turn the tables and lay the whole “fiscal cliff” at the feet of Ubama and the rest of the scumbags where it belongs. It’s not ideal by any stretch, but it may be the best we can do right now. The real fun will begin when the debt ceiling debate starts anyway.
I complained about him in the past (over this) but he is showing realism and common sense on this now.
He realizes that giving Dems more power and tax money helps none of us.
Norquist has gone the way of all other GOP pundits/lobbyists/pols.
The time has come to SMASH the GOP - send it to the ash heap! The GOP has sandbagged genuine conservatives (Sarah, Sharon Angle, Christine O’Donnell, Todd Akin) and foisted upon us Romney, Brown, Lugar, McCain just to name a few.
The GOP’s “new faces” (Christie and Rubio) are as inept as the old crop.
Stop your bitching about Boehner. You know darn well it doesn’t matter to that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, if every Republican in the House and Senate say no his tax and spending plan and 75 percent of the democrats agree with the Republicans. It’s either his way or the highway, and if he doesn’t get it then he forces it on us by EO. What does it matter to him that the House holds the purse string. By god he is the king and he better get what he wants, or else
we all know there will be no spending cuts
I agree with you
Grover needs to get his prayer rug out and leave for the east, take Boner with him.
Does not seem to matter to you either then. I guess that explains why the RINOs continue to win. With FRiends like you willing to go along with Keynesian spending, we are undone from within.
Oh, yes, I've heard of that. The Persians practiced it. The Greeks called it proskynesis, ritual prostration, and considered it proof-positive that the Persians were a race of natural slaves. The Persians, however, thought it a privilege to be allowed to approach the Great King, King of Kings, and grovel-grovel, nose in the carpet and butts in the air.
I can't believe the Dems will go for this...I think they're going to scramble to find a way to the larger deal complete with cuts. But good for Boehner for coming up with this plan which puts pressure on Obama FOR SURE!
Why not pass a “Continuing Resolution?”
Same tax rates, same budget.
For six months.
The budget will not increase, which is actually a “reduction” in the political dictionary.
Total tax revenues are slowly going up because of a slowly improving economy.
As to the debt ceiling...
Offer Obama $500 billion for 6 months.
Pass it, go home.
Spend the next 6 months constructing a real plan.
Have negotiations led by an actual Conservative who understands the principles as well as he understands the numbers.
No deal from Obama?
Offer another 6 months.
Pass it, go home, try again.
When the collapse comes and it is coming these Rinos will be Dumpster
Diving with the rest of us.
Or else what??
I wana see the or else.
Obama is a hot air machine.
Bonehead better wise up, spending and taxation start in the house.
Pass tax cuts for the bottom 3 brackets, set the top two at current rates for ever and go home.
Obama is not going to sign on to ANYTHING the republicans come up with. Obama gets what he wants by doing nothing and that is exactly what he is going to do.
So, republicans can give up one of the few things that makes them different than democrats by giving in on tax hikes, or stand firm, offer up a bill, throw it in Reid’s lap and leave.
So far all Boehner has done is compromise with himself.
Bonehead has been negotiating with himself all along. When he finally goes low enough for Zer0 to agree, Bonehead will tell us it was the best deal he could get. He’s a LOSER. We need someone who will stand by conservative principles not a GOP-e deal maker.
This whole thing is a red herring. The U.S. went flying off the “fiscal cliff” years ago. Total revenues will soon not cover spending on entitlements and interest on the national debt. And that leaves nothing for the rest of the so-called discretionary budget. Which includes “minor details” like defense.
It’s the entitlements, stupid. And neither wing of the uniparty will seriously address reducing them.
The deficits are being monetized and will be until such time as that can no longer be done.
Good points....the GOP is a dead party...and anyone supporting the Boehner Tax Hike is not conservative. Too many praise Liberal RINOs like Christie and Rubio...while sandbagging better candidates
