Mark Levin, The Great One has just reported that the GOP Leadership has called a Special Conference and are threatening committee chairmanships and assignments because at the moment, they do not have the votes to pass the second bill of Plan B.

That is what happens when you vote in a drunken idiot as Weeper of the House! (spit!)
Link does not work. Since this is a radio program, there is no article
to link to.
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.
Breaking News. Vote has been delayed. No vote tonight on second bill
of plan b.
Plan B has been pulled. Not enough votes.
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?
Fox news just reported the vote was cancelled because it wasn’t going Bonehead’s way.
Yeah. Just heard that too.
He give chairmanships to some democrats, I’m sure.
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.
Don’t worry. You folks won. Our taxes go up now.
Great job , being Obama’s tax collector.
John Bolton for Speaker.
Levin has one agenda.......Boehner out and Cantor in and USA second.
I don’t trust Cantor. I trust the T-party.
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
Meaning: his scare tactics aren't working on the conservatives. Stay strong, guys!
Any Leader who threatens their members with kicking them off chairmanships doesn’t deserve the power he has been given. Period!
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.
I have no idea what the outcome will be but they will be working late to do their best to get this through.
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.
This isn't coming directly from him, it's coming from his K Street handlers.
Could not agree more.
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.
The sad truth is that there are low-information Republican voters also.
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”
They are cheering on the Marxist channel right now, on Ed Schultz show. Their dirty work was done from the GOP inside.
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.
But of course. I'm sure Obama is sending Boehner a case or two of Jameson as we speak.
Had to link somewhere or it won’t post. lOL.
In 2014, Bonehead definitely needs to be “primaried.”
Pelosi left her playbook behind and Bonehead thinks it’s a bible.
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.
This was Pelosi’s plan before it was Boneheads.
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.
Good luck coming up with a better one.
It ain't gonna happen.
Maybe Bonehead and Cantor can Water Board these folks to get
the outcome u want. The night is still young and I hear DC has plenty
Threatening committee assignments and chairmanships did not seem
to work. It’s time for Bonehead and Cantor to bring up Plan C...Water Boarding.
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.
Boehner is not the dark, sadistic, shadowy figure the MSM has succeeded in making you and the sheeple think he is.
Guess what...they define every GOP leader the way they want. And people like you eat it up.
Draft Newt Gingrich as Speaker
The night is still young. Bonehead and Cantor can still break out the
Water Boarding to get the outcome you desire. Call Bonehead and
tell him to break out the Water Boards. There is still time to crush
Yeah, so he can vote for homo-marriage and global warming BS. NO THANKS!
