Posted on 09/22/2010 5:11:58 PM PDT by GOP_Lady
House Republicans are set to release an agenda Thursday that features longtime GOP goals, such as repealing President Barack Obama's health-care overhaul, but is less specific about how the party would tackle some long-term problem areas such as Social Security and Medicare spending.
The document includes initiatives such as giving small businesses a tax deduction equal to 20% of their business income. It would also require congressional approval for any regulation that "has an annual cost to our economy of $100 million or more." It would also make government programs terminate, or "sunset," on a specific date unless extended by Congress.
The plan "focuses on growing jobs and cutting spending, and represents a governing agenda, not a party platform," said House Republican leader John Boehner of Ohio. "The mood of the country isn't anti-incumbentit's anti-taxes, anti-spending and anti-Obama."
The document is crafted to answer Democratic accusations that Republicans are a "party of no" that doesn't put forward its own ideaswithout handing Democrats overly detailed proposals that could be attacked ahead of November's midterm elections.

Expect a bloody, noisy battle.
Expect the leftists to act like soulless, unethical, brutes. Expect the media to get nasty and stunning in their savagery.
This is going to be the political equivalent of Iwo Jima or Okinawa, where every yard of turf is terribly costly.
The only yard that counts is the last one in the game..and we have them outnumbered on the field! There is nothing that is gonna stop the American people from taking back their government in November.
This is a decent starting point.
Never underestimate the power of ignorant people in large groups.
The power is derived from the ease with which smarter people can manipulate ignorant people.

Just pieces of paper. I don’t care what it says, only what they do.
This is encouraging, but the real way to go is what Mark Levin said (pretty sure it was him), which was that the pledge to Americans should simply be to uphold the Constitution as intended by the framers.
As Anthony Scalia has said - the Constitution is an enduring document, not a living one.
Strikes me as establishment pandering......gives Dems a moving target at wrong time....
sitting target...sitting duck target..
