The Obama Administration proposal to fix the "fiscal cliff" coming at the end of the year called for $1.6 trillion in tax hikes over current policy.
I think Boehner's plan sound a lot more reasonable then Geithner's
And, Timmy's absurd proposal proves my point...team obama does not want a deal...they want pain...pain that they can blame on the GOP's coddling of the "rich".
I can hear him now..."I need your help...I tried but the GOP in the House is worried more about protecting the riches 2% than it is about you...give me what I need to fix this...give me control of the House..."
And it will work if the GOP doesn't get smart.
