Unfortunately, included in Speaker Boehners offer was an unrelated demand that a portion of the Affordable Care Act be repealed
I think that was the part where the government was supposed to pay for long term care for everyone.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.:
“Speaker Boehner’s adult moment is long overdue.
Man, she needs to be put in her place. Why do republicans take this crap?
Reid was chosen to talk about corporate jets. I wish Boehner would come out and say “We’re all for killing the corporate jet deduction. Now, will you get onto something else?”
“Interesting comment by Hoyer here:
Unfortunately, included in Speaker Boehners offer was an unrelated demand that a portion of the Affordable Care Act be repealed”
Thank you for bringing this wonderful nugget to light. It looked like nobody in DC was working for repeal. This is truly excellent news.
God only asks for 10% tithe. Obama thinks he and the government are more important than God.
I called every number for Speaker Boehner I could find and all message boxes were full (I pray they are full of thanks).
I tried to email and then fax him, all to no avail.
I turned to Rep Cantor. When I finally reached a not full message box, it was for someone else’s voice mail. I wanted to leave a thank you but when I started to speak, I became very teary.
I left a blubbering - I thank the Republican leadership for standing tough. I thank you on behalf of my husband and myself. I thank you on behalf of my children and I especially thank you on behalf of my grandchildren. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
The rhetoric about the rhetoric is so typical. BOHICA forever more....
I do not understand why it is not being talked about that Reid stopped the discussion on CCB today and would not let it come to the floor to be discussed
Who would want to work with such vile, despicable cretins?
It's more of the same Rat pablum: Big Oil, Corporate Jets, Millionaires, scaring old people and the Children.
Guy goes into a bar, there's a robot bartender.
The robot says, "What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini." The robot brings back the best martini ever and says to the man, "What's your IQ?" The guy says, "168". The robot then proceeds to talk about physics, space exploration and medical technology.
The guy leaves, but he is curious, so he goes back into the bar. The robot bartender says," What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini". Again, the robot makes a great martini, gives it to the man and says, "What's your IQ?" The guy says, "100." The robot then starts to talk about NASCAR, Budweiser and John Deere tractors.
The guy leaves, but finds it very interesting, so he thinks he will try it one more time. He goes back into the bar. The robot says, "What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini", and the robot brings him another great martini. The robot then says, "What's your IQ?" The guy says, "Uh, about 50." The robot leans in real close and says, "So, you people still happy you voted for Obama?"
That is insteresting about Boehner wanting to repeal a portion of Obamacare!
In re the corporate jet subsidies: that was put into place by Obama and the Dems as part of the stimulus. Kill the subsidy and possibly kill thousands of jobs by those who manufacture the jets and maintain/service them? Remember what happened when an exhorbitant luxury tax was imposed on people who bought yachts? People stopped buying and the yacht building business in the US folded.
Pelosi and Obama implied that the GOP position might mean education cuts. So freaking what!?!? Nothing in the Constitution says the Federal Gov’t. is supposed to be involved in the Education system. Axe the entire Dept. of Education and see how many hundreds of billions would be saved every year!
One major problem I have in the various solutions that have been proposed is this thing of spreading spending cuts out over 10 years. Cutting $3 trillion would only mean $300 billion a year, and that’s just a drop in the bucket compared to what is being spent each year. ...There needs to be some immediate, substantial spending cuts right now.
Another thing (since I’m on a bit of a rambling rant), is Obama’s insistence that the “deal” must extend to 2013. That’s so he and the Dems wont have to fight the debt ceiling battle again before the 2012 elections. He said he would not agree to a six month deal, so I think that is exactly what the deal should cover; while also containing bipartisan agreements from Congress on cuts and debt ceiling.
Republicans have once again proven unable to overcome their ideological opposition to ending taxpayer-funded giveaways for millionaires, corporate jet owners and oil companies.
Horse Dung Harry. You clowns arent fooling nayone with that horse crap.
What you want to do is take away Mortgage deductions College deduction for kids in college and deductio most Middle class taxpayers now have.
You can talk all that Sh*t you want, we know what you are after and we know who will pay the price, you rich SOB’s in the Congress will have a loophole you could drive a truck through, so will the rich, it is we Middle class who will take the shaft.
I am getting sick and tired of you Copngressional Democrat Dicks thinking we are so stupid that you can screw us like your personal whores.
Polls for how the GOP is handling the “debt ceiling issue” will go up 15 points over the weekend.
Boehners speech last night had an interesting item,he said he had an agreement for 800 billion in new Revenue,Is that not an 800 billion dollar tax increase that HE AGREED TO?
