The house has a plan. Let Ryan do the talking. Get out of the way Boehner.

Whatever the House offers will never be good enough. Obama’s plan is 1) either complete control, or 2) send the economy over the cliff and blame the Republicans.

This country needs 536 new folks in DC. That is the only solution to the mess the incumbents have created.

Theatrics on all sides.

Disgraceful.

If we wanted to see live theatre, we would buy a ticket to a play.

Boehner counterpunches Obama’s cliff offer

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Counterpunch? Look at this article. Looks like Mr. Boner is not counterpunching, but being sucker punched.

 

The Boehner Fiscal Offer (Agrees with 60% of Obama plan )

Here are two things to keep in mind with regards to Boehner’s budget offer. First, when you begin negotiations agreeing to 60% of the demands of the other side and fail to offer a bold contrast on the other 40%, you are headed for an outcome that is 80-90% favorable to your opponent. Second, when you need to outsource your budget plan and entire view of government to Democrat Erskine Bowles, you are relegating yourself and your party to irrelevancy.

Limiting the cap to those with incomes over $250,000 leaves only $800 billion in revenue. A $25,000 cap that applied to all households would raise taxes by an average of $2,400 on 17 million households with incomes below $250,000 ($200,000 for singles). Treasury estimates show that about 40 percent of the revenue from such a cap would come from these households. Thus, the amount of revenue that could be raised from taxpayers making more than $250,000 is only about $800 billion.

Raising taxes by 2,400 on 17,000,000 households is 40.8 billion. If that's only 40% of the total, then the total is 102 billion not 1 trillion. So they must be talking about the next 10 years, not per year. Pretty piddly. The real problem is not deductions or anything like that, but spending.

I can’t wait until this moronic kabuki theater is over with. What’s driving me nuts is the thought that some people have actually been conned into believing there are genuine negotiations going on, and that the “fiscal cliff” will somehow be avoided. Hello? We are going over the “cliff”.

Good.

I realize, of course, that the Repuiblicans do have to play the game in order to have a shot at breaking even in the media war that will immediately follow the failure of the alleged “negotiations”. They have to look like they worked their tails off and tried EVERYTHING to get America’s finances in order, but Ubanga and the Democrats just wouldn’t be reasonable, etc., etc.

More importantly, what the Republicans must do is use this opportunity to get a jump on the NEXT media war, the one that will commence for the upcoming “debt ceiling” debate. THAT is when things will get serious.
