Pete Sessions makes me sick - he's voted RINO every single time. I'll be supporting his opponent next time or not voting for him.

Pete has served too many terms. Time for some fresh blood in the conservative party and a New Conservative Party. Time for the GOP to finish dying it’s slow death.

You should be grateful for democrats who cut taxes, as well.
After all, well over 100 democrats voted to reduce taxes, while
only 85 Republicans, from the majority party voted to reduce taxes.
You should send Pelosi and Bonehead a thankyou note.
A bill that originated from the majority party only gets 85 votes.
What’s wrong with that picture?
Fear not, eventually the DC Party will come from your Tax Bracket, as well.

See that Kristi Noem in SD voted Yes. Wasn’t she a TEA party candidate? Oklahoma and North Texas present other surprises. Just ridiculous. A******s, all of them!

RE :”Fear not, eventually the DC Party will come from your Tax Bracket, as well.

Eventually?? I didn't have to wait for that.
Those who voted 'No' did that tonight in effect voting (symbolically only) to raise our taxes, to make us pay the Clinton tax rates rather than the lower Bush ones.

Those who killed plan B did that two weeks ago just for a symbolic 'no' against Boner, yes, they joined Pelosi and O then.
They all took the symbolic stand to raise our taxes for what????, to oppose Obama, and oppose Boner two weeks before??

This is idiotic. Republicans should have taken a real not-just-symbolic stand for taxpayers weeks ago and moved on from this loser.

Really??, Well where were you when a bunch of Rs and many here joined O and Pelosi to kill plan B, which was a much better deal than this as far as cutting taxes and spending goes???

OH I understand your point, its OK to join O and Pelosi on increasing our taxes by killing plan B, but its evil to join them on cutting them.

That's a real winner.

Let me remind you, there was no vote on Plan B.
I told you over a week ago this bill would be carried by the democrats.
And it was. You got your tax cut, and the rich got taxed more.
You even got 4 trillion in new spending over 10 years, as scored by
The CBO in this bill. What more do u want?
However, only 85 votes for this bill from the majority party is pitiful.

I WARNED you weeks ago that killing plan B would lead to O writing the final tax cut bill and being the hero that saved us from 'Republican' taxes.
You obviously didn't see that.

This bill raised no taxes at all from todays rates, it cut current rates.
Republicans could have been the tax cutters but NOOOO, you folks just had to give that to O.
Why some Rs like you want to be tax collectors for Democrats is beyond me.

You were willing to throw the rich over board last week with your Plan B.
Tonight u got your wish. The rates will only change for the rich.
I told u last week u would keep your tax rates and that the democrats
would carry this bill.
What are u complaining about now? Your taxes will stay the same.

RE :”Let me remind you, there was no vote on Plan B.”

Of course not, because O and Pelosi joined you folks in opposing it so Boner would pull it.
Back then you were celebrating that big victory stopping those tax increases by killing plan B.

So now instead of plan B cutting taxes for first $1M of income we only got it for the first $400K of income, and we got stuck with spending attached too

Still, celebrating your *victory*??? Or mad because they didn't hold out for everyone's taxes going up??

O and Pelosi SURE are.

Telling voters that Rs are raising their taxes out of spite to punish them just because Billionaires are going up under current law is idiotic and only helps O and Pelosi,’

You won, you killed plan B so act happy.

Plan B would have taxed the rich.
You won. Your taxes will remain the same and the rich will pay more.
Bonehead schedules votes. I don’t. I wish they would have voted for
Plan B. I wanted to see the Rino Monkeys that would have voted for it.
Apparently, Bonehead did not want to expose his Rino Monkeys with a
Plan B vote. He did not have the votes for Plan B and obviously he did
not have the votes to pass this bill tonight without the help of the Rats.
Chill out. The rich pay more and you keep your rates as they are.
You wanted the rich to pay more and they will.

Ahh but their taxes (and ours) just went up by 2% because Obama’s SS tax cut was allowed to expire.

You voted for him the last and got what you deserved.

There are a lot of Republican “camp followers” out there and make the same statement over and over again only to vote Republican over and over again.

My God! Isn’t this absolute proof the party can’t be fixed and a new one has to come into existence?

By the way, that 2% is based upon GROSS UNADJUSTED INCOME, not the income reported as taxable after adjustments.

What that means is that there are no deductions for citizens to apply against the Social Security Confiscation Tax.

Plan B would have cut taxes on the first million, you and Pelosi won and killed it in the House.

So now taxes are only cut on the first $400K of income, you got your tax increase on that additional $600K by killing plan B.

Be happy.

None of your heroes who voted their meaningless symbolic NOs on this bill will challenge Bohner tomorrow, he gave them cover with his move,

1) Bohner put up the Obama-McConnell bill knowing House Dems would pass it with a few Rs, including Ryan
2) Many house Rs got their safe symbolic NOs against it knowing that the bill would pass anyway and so our taxes wouldn’t go up as they would if it failed.
3) None of them wanted their votes to kill it, they were just playing their symbolic ‘no’ game.
4) So they will all support Bohner as Speaker. That is the real vote, none will step up to challenge him.

Only 85 of your heros, led by Bonehead voted for this sham of a bill.
It started out with your boys in the Senate adding over 4 Trillion over
10 years in new spending.
Your Senate Rino Monkeys seemed giddy they had reached a deal.

I dont see anyone challenging him, the whole R House caucus supported what he did and the proof will be tomorrows voter on him. They all wanted it to pass but a few are mice and scared to admit it.

You completely miss that just like you missed that taxes would go up AFTER plan B was killed.
