Posted on 01/01/2013 8:07:58 PM PST by SeekAndFind
After a long day of fiscal cliff chaos, the House will finally hold a vote tonight on the fiscal cliff bill passed by the Senate early Tuesday.
The decision to hold an up-down vote virtually guarantees passage of the bill, which would extend the Bush tax hikes for households earning under $450,000. that the bill will pass.
For most of the day, House Republicans have said that they could not support the bill without spending cuts, but by Tuesday night it was clear that GOP leaders could not come up with the votes to pass an amendment to add those cuts.
The House Rules Committee announced that there will be a vote on the unamended Senate bill in the 9 p.m. hour. Check out all of the days developments below.

“I hate the left. I hate what they stand for. But at least they do stand for something and then fight for it. The Republicans are both stupid and cowards.”
I respectfully disagree with regard to the GOP. They too are the left. The Democrats wear the uniform and carry the standard for the left. The NWO GOP is Fifth Column left. Brazen hatred in one party, feigned friendship in the other.
Starting Thursday it's a final showdown between the RINOs and the conservatives in the GOP—the GOP-e vs the TPR (TEA Party Republicans) and we are gonna win—we will make being a Republican something to brag about again and kick some liberal Democrat arse...
or all move to Texas and secede.
What Boehner has NEVER understood is that B. Hussein Obama started in politics as a Bolshevik Communist AND HAS NEVER CHANGED.
Boehner has thus become B. Hussein’s favorite BFF.
If the House RINOs will vote Boehner out and Jeb Hensarling in as the Speaker there would be hope, not much, but hope none the less.
Ohio voters in 2012 gave the USA B. Hussein Obama and Mega-Tan-Fan Boehner. Must be something in Ohio’s water - - - .
Yes....I was referring to income tax.
and just how many “tea party” Republicans folded tonite????
None-—if they folded they were never TEA Party in the first place.
“Short of a rebellion, we are all quite done. Anything less is more theater.”
Until sovereign bankruptcy can no longer be denied, we will have more theater. When the lights go out, people will slowly realize the show is over.
Anyone still think principle doesn’t matter?
Romney was/is/will always be/ the emptiest suit in town. His Marxist pals and habits were/are on the record.
What we have learned is to tune out the naggers insisting we settle for head waiter types who serve the tables of liberal, socialist, Marxist agendas while wearing a Republican apron and an elephant hat. Sheesh.
Never again. Rebellion or bust.
I can't even find our how many voted against or for, or who they were!!! Somebody please find a link to the list of shame, please...
K-Street Money Changers are very, very happy.
151 Reps voted AGAINST the bill and 85 FOR it—almost 2 to one. They should never have taken a vote.
I am. Tomorrow I raise my Fed tax examptions to the maximum amount and just set the money aside to cover the 2013 taxes to be paid in April 2014. Personally I think we may not even have a country or legitimate currency by that time.
Do you have the list???
I don’t have a link...maybe someone will post when available. Unless you have the info? I would hope none of them.
Ryan chose the GOP-e over the TEA (Party)...he is betting that the Marxists are going to win and knows that collaborators get better treatment in the camps—heck,he might even make Kapo.
you have nailed it!
” - - - - Somebody please find a link to the list of shame, please... “
It would also be interesting to compare this list with the list of RINOs who voted for GWB’s TARP in 2008.
