Boehner: New taxes OK under right conditions (Headline is a Lie)
MarketWatch ^ | 11/7/12 | Robert Schroeder

Posted on 11/07/2012 1:04:44 PM PST by illiac

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- New revenues "under the right conditions" are acceptable to Republicans as part of a deal to reduce the deficit, House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday. But Boehner, speaking a day after his party retained its House majority in elections, said revenue should come through growth and reform, not higher tax rates. Bush-era tax cuts are set to expire and automatic spending cuts will kick in next year if Congress doesn't act in the lame-duck session

No problem. I was told that ‘we’ were going to hold feet to fire.

So this is a non issue. The holding will begin anytime now...

Translation: “Balancing the budget should come through growth and reform, but since we all know that ain’t gonna happen, we’ll vote for any new taxes you like, as long as you give us at least a little pork.”

Obama received 9 million less votes yesterday than he did in 2008. Somehow, Romney received less votes than McCain in 2008, but Boehner still thinks the narrow Obama victory means it is time to compromise away everything that is left.

Call the House Members, tell them to stand up; there is to be no compromise.

Headline is either blatantly misleading or just wrong.

Boehner didn't mention "new taxes". He mentioned "revenue".

He most likely is referring to closing loopholes for revenue which is what Romney was also proposing and what conservatives have wanted for years (to simplify the tax code).

He might have looked at the DJI today and noticed the markets aren’t taking gridlock on the edge of the cliff very well.

The headline is incorrect, it clearly states in the article that tax rates are not going up.

How can we get rid of this guy? What a disaster. Was he tearing up while saying it? GOP gets a moderate squish as their speaker while the Dems get rabid leftist Nancy.

Might as well raise them, raise the debt ceiling, give 0bama and the ‘rats all the new spending they want.

The party’s over, and the fiscal cliff is looming - might as well go “Thelma and Louise” over it.

Shut up Boner!

To hell with the entire damned Republicrat Party! This is the party that has officiated at the trashing of the U. S. Constitution in that they watched while the leftist rats used it to wipe their asses on it! The stupid Republicrats then flushed the toilet.

Since the nation operates without being governed by a constitution then it would appear we are headed for an overthrow of the entire stinking apparatus!

Thanks. I was getting ready to find the actual quote.

It seems the MSM can play conservatives very easily..... All they have to do is to write a damaging and inaccurate headline and the conservative base goes running off badmouthing the person without ever knowing the entire quote.

We are so gullible sometimes.

And when the Recession of 2013 hits, the media narrative has already been written: “Massive tax increases passed by the Republican House of Representatives hit the middle class the hardest and caused the Recession.” Good by GOP House majority in 2014.

We need to “Go Galt.”

I’m ok with America crashing now. I’ve come to terms with the inevitability. Let’s get it over with so we can start to re-build.

Is Texas and OK going to secede? Somebody call me. I’ll need a place to stay when we get there. :o)

So, is there a time that the Index is going to look better?

I think not.

This is what yesterday really boiled down to..no responsibility.

Just keep pushing off the debt, racking up deficits, until we cross the event horizon, and cannot escape.

It's time to feel the pain right now. This is the only card that we were dealt after yesterday, and it is the right time to play it.

I don’t know why this guy pretends to be anything other than the closet leftist player that he is. Everyone is on to him. So why try to pretend. For instance- you take Obama’s Carbon Tax -It can’t go through without this man. But it will go through. Wait and see.
