Boehner Says He May Back Obama’s Tax Plan
Personal Liberty Digest ^ | September 15, 2010 | Staff

Posted on 09/15/2010 8:36:00 AM PDT by IbJensen

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on Sept. 12 that he is willing to support President Barack Obama’s plan to extend tax breaks for the middle-class and increase rates for the wealthiest Americans —but only if that’s his only option.

Appearing on the CBS program Face the Nation, Boehner stated that his preference is to extend all of the tax breaks approved by President George W. Bush in 2001.

If presented with a bill that doesn’t include continued tax cuts for those earning more than $250,000 annually, Boehner said, "of course I’m going to do that," but added that he’d prefer to approve legislation that will "extend the current tax rates for all Americans." The Bush administration’s tax cuts are set to expire at the end of this year.

According to Politico.com, Obama and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are facing resistance within their own party on this issue. A total of four Democratic representatives drafted a letter to Pelosi, expressing their desire to have all of the tax breaks extended in order "to provide families and businesses the certainty required to plan and make sound decisions," the news source reported.

The tanning booth has fried Boner's brain!

Despite what this communist administration thinks, it still takes money to make money.

The cutting edge of our economy is small business, people who have “discretionary funds” invest in infrastructure, operating capital, etc. and hire people to run their business. A populace without “discretionary money” can’t buy anything hence small business soon goes out of business. Often those staying open are living off the residuals of the past, hoping to begin again and encountering the devastation of a sinking economy, shrinking dollar, and the rising hopelessness of people giving up on every having anything.

Boner must not be paying attention to the primaries or special elections. The tea party is HUGE and won’t stand for this sh^%! Stop “crossing the aisle” a-hole! We’re not in the mood!

Not that I would support Boehner, but a lot of water has passed under that bridge since Sunday.

Lame hit piece, and already-debunked old news. The headline is part of the scumbags’ effort to “triangulate”, by smearing Boeher among Republicans.

I’m not getting the controversy. If that were the only option, I’d vote for it too. I’ve not seen lower taxes that I don’t like.

He had a Bone in his throat on Sunday. He’s been back-peddling ever since.

If he doesn’t wake up and wake up soon - his own forthcoming speakership will be in the toilet.

Vote Bachmann for speaker

Boehner had better wake the hell up and quick. You don’t make deals with dimrats. What they are calling a tax cut will end up being tax credits that no one can qualify for. While they hold power, there will be NO tax cuts. The Bush tax cuts will be allowed to expire because it gives the dims a tax hike without having to take a vote on it. And don’t forget about obama’s blue ribbon commission on deficit reduction. Their recommendations are due in December after the Nov elections. This group has already floated the idea of a VAT. Given who these people are, we can expect the Bush tax rates to go up, a VAT put in place and all kinds of new taxes on top of all that. The dimrats are out to destroy this country, not to get it going again.

This is cold - left over news. Boehner has since back pedalled and has explained himself since this aired. But - the lame stream media will try and keep this story alive for as long as it can.

This is so much ado about nothing. It’s an Alinsky move to freeze, personalize and demonize Boehner as the enemy. Boehner is having a great time stringing the W0n along up a blind alley. He will gladly support the plan if it includes preservation of the Bush Tax Cuts. It’s important to see who’s stirring the pot. Lets not let the Dim’s turn this sideshow into the main event. The Budget Bloat and Crap and Tax are like hanging swords over the freedom of the American People.
It is however fun to watch to see if Boehner or Bummer gets to play Lucy and snatch the football from Charlie Brown.

You have a strong affinity to those who state one thing, then cover their tracks, don’t you?

Boehner hasn’t been paying attention to the primary results or he is trying to counter them.

The fact that he had to backpedal is a strong indication tht it is time for him to go home to tend his roses.

How is Michelle doing? I heard her on a radio show & she said she’s spending all the time she can in her district .... the Dem big guns have targeted her as the #1 person they want defeated in November. She sounded very serious.

This is Boehner's Boner.

But then, I'm probably one of a hundred people who remember Merkle's Boner, whose namesake that lunkhead is.

No. I simply have a strong dislike for low-level blogs that do nothing but report old news stories, which in this case is now four days old.
