“This very likely is the death knell of the republican party.”

We should be so lucky. More than likely, the gop will continue on as a sort of zombie political party for several years. Just long enough to make it extremely difficult for conservatives to organize a viable alternative.

But then again, deceiving and screwing conservatives is the gop’s reason for existing anyway, so this is nothing new.

But these tax cuts AREN’T permanent. obama has already said he will want more tax increases if the GOP wants spending cuts.

Speaker Pelosi in 2014 is as the news media intended

Sad to say, but we actually fared better when Pelosi was Speaker than we have with Boehner.

Up next: debt ceiling. Baraq will taunt them like a cat with a dying mouse...

They'll simply double the debt ceiling, with the promise that Obama only quadruples spending... and call it a "win for America".

The last time I remember seeing this kind of rout of the majority party
was when Reagan steamrolled Tip Oneil and the democratic congress.
Reagan achieved his victories by going directly to the people.
This hapless GOP just collapsed, just as this country will, in the near
future.
This was a rout of the GOP.

85 Republicans that Boehner could have stopped from voting aye, but didn’t.

I’ve stood up for him but he has to go now. He’s costing us too many elections.

major fuq...i made the daring move and turned over to msnbc....Luke Russert was on and it was interesting...he said while the GOPussies lost on this because ayatollah obama had the leverage there is three months of trench warfare ahead and the next big fight is the debt limit where the GOPussies have the leverage and they will take the fight there...

i for one don’t believe the GOPussies have any desire to fight but it was interesting to hear that take from msnbc...

“Up next: debt ceiling. Baraq will taunt them like a cat with a dying mouse..”

...and then raise the ceiling through unilateral decree anyway. They’ve already been floating the idea that he has the authority to do so anyway. But I think he’d much rather play with the gop for awhile.

Yes, the Leadership’s decision to sacrifce the conservatives in the caucus to the RINOs is inexplicable


It’s totally splainable. The beltway old dogs want the K Street cashola to keep rolling in. Barry gives them cover to continue taking bribes and spending.

Now the GOP has gun control to black mail us with. Vote for us or the marxists grab the guns, etc. Damn them.

“The underground economy is the best bet.”

That is what is enveloping northern NJ (as Americans flee and are replaced by foreign “others”); cash businesses function with no documented workers (or inspections), people pay cash to live in illegal apartments (carved out of houses that formerly housed American families of 6-8 people), and the Meadowlands Flea Market sells groceries (including lobster) for cash.

It is a recipe for disaster; the area is starting to look like the countries our illegal aliens fled.

FU Boehner. I will absolutely donate to whoever runs against you. Count yourself on the same list Cantor.

You stooping bastuhds. you played brinkmanship with the poor and the middle class.

You are the worst negotiators. You don’t fold tent and pretend that is a position of negotiation. You sit across from each other and give and take but you just had pretend you were men of principle.

Morons. Many of my friends had the worst sales for December due to a substantial number of shoppers holding off on spending because of theuuncertainty you injected into the economy.

Guess what? They don’t get a do over.

FAGS.

Oh, the GOP will SAY they are permanent, but I’ve heard obama, and members of the rats, say that more tax increases are on the way, once the sequestration talks begin. obama himself said he won’t cut anything without more tax increases to “pay off the debt”.

No, losing members and losing the majority means they’ll have less power to sell to K street, or to enjoy in any way.

"I remember when I was a child, being taken to the celebrated Barnum's Circus, which contained an exhibition of freaks and monstrosities, but the exhibit on the programme which I most desired to see was the one described as "The Boneless Wonder". My parents judged that the spectacle would be too demoralising and revolting for my youthful eye and I have waited fifty years, to see the The Boneless Wonder sitting on the Treasury Bench." - Winston Churchill

Today's Boneless Wonders are called 'Republicans'.

Boehner is a used car salesman. A smirking swarmy scumbag. You could see it in his eyes when he was walking down the hall in front of cameras. Bought off....we are sold out. Bloodless coup.

Pelosi never raised income tax rates and capital gains tax rates. Pelosi never raised the debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion either.

Up next: debt ceiling

In March, the Republican House members should simply refuse to act, sending the expense side of sequestration over the cliff. That will reduce expenses by $3 trillion over ten years versus the revenue increase of $600 billion. The House can authorize emergency funds for the military from time to time.

So the solution is simple for the Republicans: just do nothing.
