Apparently it doesn’t take much...

Maybe he should consider another line of work.

Well, these idiots went right along with Boehner and Cantor and McCarthy continuing as leaders. Goemert nominated Gingrich to be speaker and not one republican seconded the nomination. They could have sent a message but they chose to cower in fear (of a man with no spine, no less).

First of all, DeMint is a minority party Senator. Senate has not part in this dance. He can say what he wants, he has no responsibility here.

I thought Boehner’s plan was realistic, as much as I hated it.

Listen, we're going over the cliff. We have to be as reasonable as possible to avoid some of the blame (doubt if it will work, but we have to put best deal out there). While I like the doomsday option, I would do it differently.

I would simply allow a vote to raise marginal tax rates on the 2%, but change nothing else in the law. Estate taxes, AMT, deductions, etc. would all remain the same. Minimal pain on minimal amount of people.

Our Reps can vote “present” if they want, but send it to Senate. Let them pass it or ignore it - might help the blame game.

Oh this is great. Now Boehner is the best friend of the Left and the awful conservatives are going to be the fall guys. The Word “Conservative” will be the next victim to Alinsky’s Rules.

I would simply allow a vote to extend all tax cuts and laws permanently, but raise marginal tax rates on the 2% to, say, 38%, but change nothing else in the law. Estate taxes, AMT, deductions, etc. would all remain the same. Minimal pain on minimal amount of people.

2014 is going to look like 1974 for the GOP House.

I can’t believe FR posted a Yahoo News story and you people are commenting on it like it’s real news.

Yahoo News is left leaning as they get, and they love to incite conservatives. Go back and look at when they ever did a story on Dems “in disarray”.

geeze

I thought yesterday Boner told the Conservatives to get in line or be dumped from their committee chairs. No difference between GOP (Boner) and RAT (Piglosi)>

IT IS WAY WAY PAST TIME FOR A NEW PARTY - IT APPEARS IMPOSSIBLE TO OVERTAKE THE ENTRENCHED WITHIN THE GOP-e.

Conservatives make John Boehner’s life difficult—again

Difficult? I want them to make his life a living hell until he runs screaming and crying down the halls of Congress all the way to his mommy!

The GOP establishment needs to go. They play for both sides.
