In a breach of bedrock conservative principles, House Speaker John A. Boehner laid out a proposal Tuesday to allow tax rates to rise for Americans making more than $1 million a year.
And standing side by side with Boehner as he outlined what many Republicans consider an apostasy but what Boehner argues is the only way to spare most people from a tax increase was House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who has worked hard in recent months to play the loyal lieutenant.

Eric Cantor = FIRST CLASS SUCK-ASS!
He has to go also.
That’s why these three stooges need to go.
Fire Bonehead, Cantor and McCarthy. All are stooges for the K-Street crowd.
cantor... like boner... is a progressive back stabbing liar.
I feel like I am living inside a sci-fi B movie of the week...and there is no escape.
Some were suggesting Gingrich until he came out yesterday for gay marriage LOL.
Bachmann and Ryan are two that come to mind... both a hell of a lot better than anyone that is there now.
So you think Bachmann and/or Ryan could get spending reduced? And how exactly would they get more support for their plan than Boehner?
No on Bachmann(too FLAKEY),
and NO on Ryan(too damaged and too Close to boner and the Boys).
And how would Gohmert’s plan have a better chance at making it through the legislative process?
Just a heads up everyone. If you check the posting history of “What’s Up” for the past few weeks, you will discover he has been working overtime to excuse the behavior of the GOP and to disrupt any discussion about conservatives abandoning the GOP.
Before you give him any creedence, read his history and then decide if he is someone you care to listen to.
God forbid that I didn't join the group calling for Gingrich to become Speaker! (And now that he's announced he's in favor of gay marriage was I wrong?)
God forbid that I don't want my taxes to go up in January!
And God forbid that I'm asking who realistically could take Boehner's place and get legislation passed (with no realistic response I might add)! Sheesh.
After a great start in 2009 (when he stood up to Pelosi and her lockouts), Cantor has turned into quite the GOP-E toadie.
Then you have no issue with people seeing for themselves how you have done everything possible to help the GOP continue business as usual.
Munch on this...
Wishes and dreams are not going to cut it.
Yea...after going around with you a couple days last week and how you assured us Bhoner would not cave on taxes, what did he do?
A monster tax hike attempt on the rich. Class warfare. Just like the dems. Pit the rich against the regular earners.
That’s your idea of a solution.
Any random tea party member could do better. Pick one off the street.
I rest my case.
He is hoping for the best, hoping taxes dont go up with any fiscal-cliff deal
So Price is "hoping". And that's a plan for success?
