Bonehead is acting like a mobster. For Bonehead, it's all about power.

Boehner will reap what he is sowing - the RINOs will attain at least half of what they have long sought, driving conservatives from the decision making process.

The bad news is conservatives and their consituents won't simply vacate the decision making process.

BTW just heard there will be no vote tonight.

So who’s he going to get to take over the committee chairs if he fires them all because they won’t play ball with Obama?

Do you think Boehner still thinks he's a shoo-in for the Speaker vote in January after these tactics?

He's acting like he's already secured the seat, but he doesn't have the official vote until January, right?

Maybe the caucus will remember that. It's not too late to put someone else forward for Speaker.

Boehner better watch out.

Can’t say what the membership will do. However if he kicks off 12 or 13
more members off committees, he won’t have the votes to be re-elected
speaker.

The 2014 round of primary challengers should feature a bunch of citizen-legislators, who won't give a $h!t about re-election or committes, and would vote based on their principles. And two years after that, a fresh batch of new faces (and so on).

They should be business-oriented people who can tell the lobbyists to bleep themselves. Realistic or not, it's a better idea than the crap-sandwich system we have now in both parties.

Likely they are only a handful of votes short. They will work all night to get them.

I have no idea what the outcome will be but they will be working late to do their best to get this through.

That's what I'm thinking. I hope he's already crossed the point of no return.

What could compel the House Republicans to sign up for another two years of these tactics, no matter how this turns out?

That would just be an exercise in masochism.

Raising our taxes is a leftist policy.

A question will all those who claimed that this tax cut bill was raising taxes be surprised when our taxes go up as a result of its defeat?
Any of them?

What boner and other rinos don’t get is that for the most part the Tea Party got promises from their candidates that they would not raise taxes.

OK, so you are a Tea Party candidate who won due to their efforts.

Maybe 500,000 people voted for you. If you follow boner, you have 500,000 who think (know) you are a liar.

Remember Bush and the “read my lips?. What happened to him?

The Tea Party got them elected, and what does the Tea Party stand for?

Taxed Enough Already.

Remember that chant at all of the early meetings?

Any Tea Party candidate who votes for any tax increase deserves to be tarred and feathered and ridden out on a rail, the way we did things 100 years ago.

Not because it is a good strategic move, or is not, but because of that thing called integrity.

It doesn't lower taxes, it lowers the rate of growth. They go up regardless.

I emailed my Conressman Tom Petri and told him the Republicans promised us no tax increases. Not for anyone-not even millionaires. I told him that the Tea Party is watching him and others in Wisconsin, and we will remember this vote.

Sounds like they went into recess.

What party can accomplish anything when they are told they must raise taxes or be accused of raising taxes?

I would guess that next month Obama’s final terms of surrender to Republicans will be painful and humiliating.

But that's what cults like “See I told you so”

So we'll see if the Tea Party Representatives vote to not send Boehner back as Speaker?

I hope so. Boehner is a failed Speaker. Pelosi said that she "smoked" him out.

Democrats were never good-faith negotiators during this entire process, and Boehner wasn't aware of that. He had blinders on that everyone's word was good. The Old School rules.

The problem is, once finding this out, he's still acting like everyone else are still good-faith actors.

Maybe Bonehead and Cantor can use water boarding on these folks.
Whatever it takes to get the right outcome for you.
I’m kind of hoping Bonehead kick about 16 more off committees .
If so, that loser won’t be speaker much longer.

I believe you are onto something. Perhaps a new round of retired professionals who are secure in their finances and do not need the income of the legislative career. We need principled conservatives, not people who are there for power or career. Dr Dan Benichek comes to mind . . we need more folks like bim.

I don't see how these same GOP House reps will agree to anything the President is in favor of.

Either they have to come up with a deal which gets House Dems on board, this current bill comes to the floor again, or we go over the cliff.

You missed the thread title : Bohners B bill was defeated, Our taxes go up now. Those that defeated it did the Dems dirty-work, as tax collectors for O as Pelosi was voting against it too.

All night there will be parties on the Marxist channel over this tax increase ON US that some Rs accomplished by killing this tax relief bill.

You would think he was the stupidest man in DC, but he was devious enough to screw conservatives out of committee positions. The guy is Pierre Laval.

So now what. Will Boehner try and work a deal with the Rats and enough liberal Republicans to get something through next week? Or will he do nothing, let the tax increases and sequester take effect along with somebody else as Speaker to worry about what next? or what?

RE :”Either they have to come up with a deal which gets House Dems on board, this current bill comes to the floor again, or we go over the cliff.”

Yes we go over the cliff. Our Taxes go up.
Visualize this : After taxes go up thanks to this defeat Voters scream at Republicans for raising their taxes, as with the FICA standoff a year ago..
EVENTUALLY Republicans are willing to pass anything to reverse even part of it as with the Budget control act.

See once the taxes go up and people notice it then any bill passed even to $100K is a tax cut, so the GOP can accept any piece of crap O demands.

But you are right, the details have yet to unfold.
