I'm going to respectfully disagree with Mitch here. He should start to plan to agree to specific increases in income taxes and in specific phase-outs of corporate deductions. First he should agree to close the loophole that permits billionaires from placing shares of stocks with unrealized capital gains into trusts (targeting Gates and Buffett).

He should agree to minimize corporate deductions for companies in the entertainment industry and the media which consume vast quantities of electricity generated by fossil fuels. Such industry companies should be required to account for all electricity used during each production and submit the percentage of green sourced electricity consumed. If such companies electricity consumption is less than 75% green sourced, Mitch should support a penalty assessment of $5 per KWh on the shortage.

Another good line in this short article:

The media has already taken House Speaker John Boehner out of context to claim that he is willing to cave on raising tax rates.

We ought to be rallying around our guys, imperfect as they are, to resist Obama.

If Obama can change Immigration law by executive fiat, he can change Tax by executive fiat. McConnel doesn't understand that the constitution was swept away in Obamas first term. It no longer exists.

We might as well let the Rats do whatever they want at this point. No point in the Republicans setting themselves up to be the scapegoat. Obama might as well finish destroying the economy and the Rats will have only themselves to blame. Maybe if we allow the fools who voted for Obama to hit bottom they might wake up!! The Republican strategy ought to be to detach and enable no more. (For now, while they dig their hole)

The sheer number of lies reach a tipping point and we are well beyond that now. All that’s left is for the Bread and Circus to spend its way through to the very last dollar or the Muslims or Putin (or both) to nuke a US city or two.

Whenever Mitch McC says one thing, he always does the opposite, but the people of KY have never caught on.

Yeah sure. Mitch McConnell is a regular Ronald Reagan.

Lets be honest here; this bowl of vanilla ice cream gets more animated taking a crap.

This guy is like his House counter part Boehner; he folds like a cheap card table.

This current group of weak-kneed Republicans need to just get out of the way of Obama, but do it in a cunning way.

here is a case in point:
Obama wants to raise taxes. Have him submit his proposal chock full of tax increases. Pretend that we will fight those tax increases. Let it pass the Senate first. then when it arrives in the House, change our tune and pass it in its entirety. We cannot take the blame.

Do the same with Amnesty. The hispanics expect him to pass amnesty. The democRATS really dont want amnesty because then they lose control of their precious new voting block. Force his hand. Pass Amnesty in the house. Make the democRATS decide.

Do the same for every issue. just like Obamacare, make Obama own every descision that he campaigned on. Yes, it will hurt is for the next four years but look at what has happened in Argentina. The lady who ran it like Obama is now ripe to be run out of office, her and her coalition.

People at some point have to suffer before they wise up.

Also, my wife and I have decided to turn off our TV during prime-time, minimize our movie going, stop dining out, , stop buying music, and have cancelled our newspaper and our magazines.

We also will not donate to Sandy victims because we heard on TV that Gov Christie and Obama have it all under control.

I like the line (verbal and in the sand) however, the approach has to change how we present things to the media...perhaps the MSM won’t give us the time to do it, but:

Gotta accompany each response to the MSM/0bama with an explanation WHY taxes are bad and how they work or don’t work...how it relates to the Constitution...wording and re-education is critical...even Luntz mentioned this on Ingraham the other day...words mean something and our wording, explanation does NOT connect with the ignorant electorate anymore (perhaps never did). Our “schools” have dummed our kids down, who are now voting by sound byte.

STFU McConnell.

You’re not convincing anyone — you’ll talk, talk then cave as you always do. Besides, the voters said they want higher taxes, so stop resisting this week’s will of the people.

Yes, line in the sand that he will support about 20 milksop seconds until he is bought off for a few more personal favors for his personal constituent fellow partners in well concealed kick backs.

Bend over and prepare for the liberal fascist redistribution of wealth in order to keep a few of the lefts favorite socialist programs operational as the economy CRASHES.

Balanced budget and debt reduction? Dream on.

Watch the leftist parasites kill the host that has been feeding it for far too long.When it all crashes, I will dance for joy.Then the real fight begins.

Yeah...whatever....

I’ll believe it when I see it. We capitulate on EVERYTHING, including the huge voter fraud issues with this election. WE never fight for what is right.

The proper way to handle this is to say, “they are already getting tax hikes when the bush tax cuts expire. why would we raise taxes more when they’re already raising?”
