So far at least, I don’t think Boehner plans to cave. I think Obama’s gambit to blame Republicans into folding and raising taxes isn’t working as planned...yet.
Wish I could agree. We have seen this train wreck before.
Boehner will talk tough and probably let the Sequester deadline pass. The kenyan will brow beat the GOP for a day or two and then McConnell will pull out the fake cut deal they have in reserve. The deal will be fake cuts for real tax increases. Total victory for the Dems.
All this posturing by Boehner is BS for the GOP base. I don’t buy it at all. They will sell us out again. They have never, ever strongly opposed Obama. Why would they start now, on this?
I think you have it exactly right, even the timing.
Exactly. They - both democrats and republicans - got the money they wanted from us. They're both happy.
So what if us tax slaves have to cut back to bare bones? It's not about us. It's about unlimited power and luxury for them, and they're not going to give any of it up for anyone. We'll just have to get used to making our bricks without straw.
