Who is this punk?
When a known TAX CHEATER can go on TV and blame others for any fiscal cliff, we are in serious trouble!
Call Obama’s bluff.
That will bring a lot of the 53% who voted for Ubama back into the taxpayer population.
Let them feel how much government costs.
No deal unless entitlement reform.
There isn’t going to be any deal.
See you after the fall, Mr. Geithner.
This is what happens when you got a commie running the joint who thinks that the IRS is a wealth redistibution machine with guns.
Ah, Timmy Geithner.
Whose father Peter Geithner was President of the Ford Foundation funding some of the initiatives in third world hellholes that Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham was directly involved in.
Small world, ain’t it?
If I was discussing / negotiating this with him I would say
“we will have to negotiate taxes. And we cannot do that here. However everything is on the table.
Now let’s get to the meat of it and discuss spending cuts. We are at $16T in debt and adding $1T each year. This is unsustainable and will turn this once great country into Greece. We must get this under control and cap the debt and keep from enslaving future generations. We propose across the board spending cuts with the same percentage applied to ALL departments.”
It’s part and parcel of the Marxist line that “the wealthy” must be penalized for being so much more comfortable than the proletariat.
The trouble is, of course, as even a superficial examination of history will reveal, that once the wealthy are stripped of their “wealth” then society becomes a poverty-stricken mess with nothing to offer the screaming mob any longer, and revolution and anarchy are the inevitable result. Political revolution is the sure result.
This revolution is Obama, Chaper II. He studied his Karl Marx well, and is employing congress and his voter base well - as the Useful Idiots they are.
Strange that after so much fuss and fury, America has surrendered to Marxism/communism without so much as a ruffle.
No deficit deal until everyone starts paying taxes. I’m tired of supporting 6 families when 5 of them are nothing but bums.
If obozo got EVERYTHING he and his buzzard cronies want it would be $89 Bln over 10 years — enough to run the government for 8 WHOLE DAYS.
Part of me says to complete cave — give them everything they want and let all hell break loose. Or do nothing and let all hell break loose.
Either way, Americans are too stupid to know this regime owns this economy. I just don’t know if another 4 year of agony would be enough to open their eyes.
Treasury secretary isn’t part of this negotiation, unless he has been appointed Senator to finish this term. He can stick it.
Force them to detail their plans in writing so when they try to wiggle out of the cuts, the Republicans have a budget that has been passed into law and would require a modification that again would have to be passed.
Wake up call:
THIS IS THE STUPID PARTY...REMEMBER?
Did you watch Fox Sunday - Crystal and Rollins were terrible, talk about old school Republicans....
Bring back Hayes and Charles.
Obama is going to want that debt ceiling to be raised pretty soon.
Saw Chris Wallace interview of Geitner on FOX and couldn’t believe the liar - he’s the most partisan Sec. of Treas. ever and a political operative - not a finance guy - probably groomed for years by the Marxist powers just like Obama.
Where are the Repubs shouting the same claim against the Dems?
“The Democrats are holding tax cuts for the whole nation hostage over tax increases for a few. They are the ones risking the fiscal cliff - all for a tiny amount of taxes that won’t put a dent in the deficit.”
No cajones. Sickening.
Why can’t our guys have the balls to say; “no deal without spending cuts”?
Fine. Want compromise ? Tax increases for all liberals and registered Democrats.
Screw Geithner and the Democrats. Let’s go off that cliff and finally get to see what Obama is planning. Let’s have this battle under our terms not Hussein’s.
