House Speaker John Boehner, hoping to spare fellow Republicans a second embarrassing defeat over payroll tax cuts, is prepared to navigate around rebellious Tea Party-aligned lawmakers to get a deal, according to congressional aides.
Republicans in the House of Representatives got a public drubbing from critics within and outside the party in December for initially refusing to approve a Senate plan to extend the tax break for 160 million Americans through February.

I'd expect Boehner, et al, to go back in there for the whole enchilada.
Wow, what fun having nothing but enemies in Congress.
They should never have agreed to the payroll tax reduction in the first place. It is just another stimulus package using borrowed money and SS as a conduit to distribute the money.
WTH is wrong with these people?
If it comes from Reuters it’s got to be propaganda....You know they want us fighting amongst ourselves by spreading these lies...how about we see what happens before we jump on soap boxes people...
Once SS withholding removed from individuals, there will be nobody left to resist tax increases designed to "stabilize" the Social Security system.
Boehner is incompetent, that’s what.
I stand by for someone to prove me wrong. He’s screwed up every single thing he’s tried against the Dems and Obama.
“Once SS withholding removed from individuals, there will be nobody left to resist tax increases designed to “stabilize” the Social Security system. “
If that happens, there will be wage and salary cuts, and the employers will get the blame.
I don’t trust Reuters. But SOaB if true.
They are progressives, just like 5 of the 6 GOP candidates running for pres.
The last I heard is Boehner will be attempting to extend the payroll exemption for the remaining year. I hear no change. I think this is a rat trying to stir things up. I’m not the biggest fan of Boehner but we have to wait and see.
Boner/McConnell: We gotta make a deal we gotta make a deal gotta make a deal GOTTAMAKEADEAL GOTTAMAKEADEAL GOTTAMAKEADEAL GOTTAMAKEADEAL GOTTAMAKEADEAL OMG WE GOTTAMAKEADEAL!!!!!!
Precisely the objective. “Greedy” businesses don’t vote.
Boehner functions best when he just goes along to get along. He’s no conservative warrior. If he could just get that darn Tea Party to STFU he could get back to the golf course and work on his tan in peace.
And this is how the GOP-E has decided to deal with the TEA Party.
The GOP-E can go to hell!
“Hes screwed up every single thing hes tried against the Dems and Obama.”
I think he is compromised at some level, and that they own him. Something about the body language at that disgusting golf game they enjoyed together.
“And this is how the GOP-E has decided to deal with the TEA Party.

That’s what they want you to say. Go off an form a third party. We all know what their record of success is. No, work with your local Tea Party to get more conservatives elected to Congress. In the event Romney is elected, they will be needed to “lead” him in the right direction.
Sorry, but the GOP is about to go the way of the Whigs. Are you going with them?
