Sellouts!! I’ll be watching to see who has the courage to vote no. Everyone else will be persona non grata in my books.

Seriously, is anyone surprised?

I have often wondered what happens to Republican’s balls when the go to DC. Not to mention their brains....

It seems only our women are immune to these problems....

I agree. When the republican party starts representing conservatives I’ll give them my vote, until then, what’s the point?

That’s what I’m sending to the idiots on twitter. I’m making it shorter and sending it to:

http://www.gop.gov/republicans/twitter

The worst part is a tax on those making $400,000 or more , the “Rich”. that is called a progressive tax and is marxism.

To congress,
learn something idiot fool Senators and Congressmen, socialism never works. this is socialism and you are voting for socialism ,in the middle of the night during a holiday, on a bill you know nothing about all to avoid a fake news media created “fiscal cliff” bs. you are complete wastes of space, idiots

It seems to be their logic is that people will be ticked off if they go over the cliff. That’s a lot of the comments today. I can see that, but at the same time....when the heck else can we get any cuts?

I don’t see the debt ceiling etc. helping much with that.

Going independent. Hope there is a new party or Boehner is overthrown in the next term. Otherwise, I am out. They can lose the House in 2014 for all I care. Let the Dems be responsible for our collapse (if it takes that long).

I will be very surprised if more than 65 Rino Monkeys vote for this.
I am hoping a lot of Rino Monkeys vote for this, as it will provide more
opportunity to primary them.
I am guessing Bonehead will protect as many of his Rino Monkeys
as he can.

Say WHAT?
GOP Leadership. Is not that an oxymoron?
This is exactly what I expected. A bill put together behind closed doors. Passed by the Senate, with out being read by anyone. Except the ones that wrote it. Now being voted on by the House and probably will be passed without being read by anyone.
Yes sir. Just what the founders had in mind (sarc)
My guess is Jefferson, Madison and the others are spinning in their graves. I know I am puking in disgust.

At this moment in the vote, 52 “Republicans” are voting for the Obamination and 72 are voting no. Obama has won a resounding victory and controles the House and “the Speaker”. Conservatives in government are officially a small and insignificant minority.

As it should be. This is precisely disgusting.

Earlier they folded on compelling social issues, while they lectured us on "how it is all about the economy and government spending," and now they've sold us out on those issues. They are worthless pretenders and we need new leadership who will support conservative principles and lead and not fold. Next up 2nd Amendment rights...

If boner stays the GOP is toast. Any repubican that votes for this will get primaried. Speaker Pelosi in 2014. Maybe someone will put a little EMP over DC.

Dr. Coburn basically said he viewed the vote as a tax cut because our taxes had went up as of today. I see where he is coming from because in reality my taxes did go up today...but I still don’t like it but I can live with it.

I went them to hold the line on the debt ceiling. I think we have leverage in that debate if played right. Also it is a good thing that these tax cuts are PERMANENT....this can’t be used anymore.

“the death knell of the republican party”

Yes, the Leadership’s decision to sacrifce the conservatives in the caucus to the RINOs is inexplicable. Democrats will sweep the 2014 elections when Rs are “primaried” and “third-partied”.

It’s suicide.
