No wonder Americans are scared and losing confidence!
I Boner had any testicular fortitude, the House would pass a spending bill with 50% across the board spending cuts and go home.
Like all good Commie/Marxists, Barry loves a FREE ride!
I can’t stand either one of those SOB’s...
With no spending cuts and the crippling of the top brackets to make use of their available capitol to grow the economy, Zer0 is making sure America stays in the ditch. You can confiscate 100 percent of the top brackets’ earnings and that will only pay for the cost of government for 91 days. We need an economy that is growing fast enough so that it pays for 100 percent of the cost of government. This will only come with low taxes and regulatory reform that reduces the cost of business. Anything else are lies and deception.
The headline quote is actually funny.
When are all the spending bills set to expire?
I frankly don’t see a problem. The Democrats have said for years that the tax cuts were “Bush’s tax cuts for the rich”, so what’s the problem if those tax cuts for the rich expire and their taxes go up?? /s
Why the Hell haven’t the Republicans been shouting that from the roof tops??
Know what else you get for free Barry - title of being the worst POTUS evah!
Boner is not logical, however.
Since when did NObama need an excuse to blame Republicans? There can be no deal when one side refuses to “deal” but will only agree on capitulation. Besides, there is no “going over the cliff” because we have gone over long ago. Really, 16 trillion in debt and we pretend to want to pay it back? That will never happen. Our kids and grandkids are doomed to ever increasing taxes.
Republicans - get a BACKBONE and fight.
And you better get ready for one bitter fight over gun control.
If the President appears for the SOTU at the invitation of the Speaker of the House...
RESCIND THE INVITATION!
Let him submit it in writing, or do it from the Oval Orifice. Or, better yet, from his favorite hang: the golf course.
| "What do you get for those tax increases? HA-HA-HA-
You get nothing.
You get NO spending cuts except maybe those automatic Defense cuts if I am generous.
In fact you will restore that spending I let you cut to social programs last year.
And get on the House floor and kiss a picture of my a..
I own you now suckers"
Holy crap, How did he get in here?
I swear if I were speaker I'd have said "You appear to prefer using this situation as an opportunity to demonize my side over getting a deal. So far you seem to think you have all the cards. Well here's one I have. If we go over the cliff then on Jan 1 we shut the government down except social security, law enforcement, and defense. And it doesn't come back until we have a balanced budget. And I do mean balanced. No more borrowing. There will be no more continuing resolutions, and baseline budgeting is dead. Demonize all you want, I'm done with your BS."
The following quote by Ayn Rand cannot be emphasized enough:
In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit.
