House Minority Leader John Boehner, Ohio Republican, was piled on this weekend following his response to whether or not he would vote to extend the Bush middle-class tax cuts, if that was the only tax relief available to extend, and the Bush higher income tax cuts were not allowed the same extension.
In an interview on Sunday with Bob Shieffer on CBSs Face the Nation, Mr Boehner said:
We don't know what the bill's going to say, alright? If the only option I have is to vote for those at 250 and below, of course I'm going to do that. But I'm going to do everything I can to fight to make sure that we extend the current tax rates for all Americans."

“If the only option I have is to vote for those at 250 and below, of course I’m going to do that.”
WHY? Why not make them OWN it?
Bonehead couldn’t come up with a good talking point if he listened to the collective speeches of Ronald Reagan for a year on infinite loop and repeat.
How come these became “Obama tax cuts”??
Oh have they finally noticed that people support tax cuts?
Pence trying to commit political suicide?
You keep electing “R”s thinking they are conservative...and this is what you get.
Time to vote for real conservatives...and time for many to upgrade that 2 digit IQ thinking that anyone with an R next to their name is a conservative
Pence is a Putz.
You really think Boehner wouldn't be blamed if every middle class person's taxes went up Jan. 1 because he held out for the rich?
Of course he would...and the entire House GOP along with him.
Think out a few months and you will see exactly the game the MSM/Dems are playing.
Good. We will need many more to stand together to defeat Obamunism.
“Think out a few months and you will see exactly the game the MSM/Dems are playing.”
Should be covered by the DUH factor ... if politics continues to pander to people so stupid they can’t see this, then we get what we deserve. It isn’t a game, it’s the economy and we should do what’s right. That’s how we are ending up sliding into the toilet. Nobody wants to do what’s right, they want to pander.
Get real....Pence is NOT a PUTZ!
Get real....Pence is NOT a PUTZ!
That’s right. Thank you.
I think the same state-run media that turned “illegal alien” into first “undocumented worker”, then “migrant”, and finally just plain “immigrant” finds it no more difficult to turn “Bush tax cuts for the rich” into “tax cuts passed under the Bush administration”, and then into “Obama’s tax cuts for the middle class”. They boil the frog slowly but the same job gets done. Always remember:
WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
It's not pandering...it's reality.
Not all these people are stupid...many of them just don't have time to research like you or I. They can't keep up with every 24/7 dynamic that happens in DC.
This kind of thing is not always pandering. It's using political power wisely to prevent evil from dominating.
