...Conservatives don't DO tax increases and don't DO class warfare...FRIGGIN PERIOD!!!
Kissa mah ass!!!
Pass an 18% flat tax. Throw it out there and see what happens. Let the media get into the weeds of the details.
When they say that it will not reduce the deficit. Say that we are looking for leadership on reducing expenditures. Pose - What percentage of a person’s income should go to taxes?
We’re NOT in a recession NOW?
I’m always the last to know.
Plan B was bad, but rejecting it simply means a worse option will eventually pass through the House - it will just be done with mostly Democrat votes instead.
The problem with Boehner is that he is NOT part of the solution. He can’ be... he is not equipped to be. I’m sure he has his talents, but leadership is not one; ability to dream up and then make bold strokes to fiscal health to attack the spending not his forte.
It was a (<1M tax cut) trick to try to beat O at his own game. But it wasn’t very well planned and the R party is totalty fractured and more interested in fighting each other than beating O. Boner is weak and slow but he has a no-win job so NO_ONE will challenge him.
One side cares about symbolic actions, like 33 symbolic repeals of O-care, the other side cares nothing for symbols as they are out to win and take it all, to get what they want.
So in 2015 and 2016 when Pelosi takes back the House and Reid gets back his 59 or 61 Obama will finish the job,.
Piss off Larry!
