That would force the Dems own the economy.

It’s the least they can do.

Let the tax cuts expire. Let some of the 47% who don't pay taxes find out what it's like to pay taxes.

Good plan. Blubbering Boehner better not screw it up.

Rep Bonehead (aka, Boehner) can’t even vote present, can he?

After all, what’s left of his RINObrain hasn’t been conscious for the past thousand years or so.

Republicans are sooooo dead.

Long live the Tea Party.

You can’t give away the tax hikes without getting anything back.

Run over the cliff. That way we at least get spending caps out of the deal.

If people want lots of government goodies, they are going to have to pay lots of government taxes. Shielding the middle class from this simple reality does not help us.

Hit the gas.

I read that as “Republican Doomsday Plan: Cave in Texas, Vote ‘Present’”

I’d have voted “present” a few years ago to the local caves but they’re no longer civil defense shelters stocked with MREs.

Oh, and BTW... If the Republicans think voting “present” is going to get them off the hook for raising taxes, they have another thing coming!

We sent them to Congress to control taxes. They get no credit if they refuse to do their damn jobs! Voting present might as well be an “AYE” vote, as far as I am concerned.

In fact, I would respect a Congresscritter who actually voted AYE more than I would somebody who took the easy way out by voting “Present”. If the Republicans take this approach, I am one TeaPartier who will never support them again.

Dumb idea. The Reps give up their only real bargaining chip. And the GOP will be blamed for the increase in marginal tax rates on small businesses, aka the rich, because they go up automatically on Jan 1. This will split the GOP and more than likely result in the formation of a third party with roots in the Tea Party.

Voting present is the coward's way out. If the GOP is afraid to stand on principle then it deserves to die.

First, hold a vote extending the Current Tax Rates for everyone. Republicans all vote “Yes!”

Second, hold a vote to repeal all the Current Tax Rates and revert to the higher Clinton Tax Rates. Republicans all vote “No!”

Third, let a Democrat propose raising taxes on the rich. Republicans all Abstain.

That works for me. I’ve been recommending it for a week or two, explicitly, here.

No mention of an AMT Patch, if their isn't one in this package, it will not grab 4 million but up to 33 million filings.

Then watch people scream, I already know what it will cost us...

I hope that, at least, the GOP would insist that there be no “sunset” on the middle class tax cuts.
This “doomsday” plan MUST make those cuts permanent.

I think this would be a great idea, but the media is going to blame everything on the Republicans. When the economy tanks, people will have less money, and the media will blame the Republicans because they didn’t vote to just raise the taxes on the rich.

If only we had even a semi-educated public that would not believe the lies of the MSM, I’d have no problem with this. No matter what happens to the economy, it will NEVER be the Messiah’s fault. NEVER.

Let let government go over the cliff, pass a bill declaring the country insolvent, and disolve the Union. The Red States walk away and form their own country without any liberal input.
