Back to the golf course.
I would prefer to go over the cliff rather than dance to Obama’s tune. He is the one bankrupting America. The GOP don’t have to help him!
One proposal, with the same two predications - raise taxes on the top two brackets, to punitive levels, and give the White House unilateral authority to raise the debt limit at his discretion.
Nothing is changed. To give in on this is to hand the matches and flame accelerant to the avowed arsonist.
good! I hope he throws a hissy fit and makes a big ass out of himself and still go over the cliff.
What a joke he is
“Demand” all ya want, Barqy.
We know, really we do, that you WANT the “cliff”, you want to bring the country down.
It’s very hard for most people who are not attuned to accept that, but maybe, maybe, eventually they’ll see the truth.
No sweat—It’s only “the rich” that will be hurt when the country goes over the cliff, right?
Der Fuehrer wants to FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM the United States. You think he wants to make a deal?
The champion of the “middle class.”
So we’re all rich now, even the fools who thought they were going to get more free stuff now get a tax tack hammer to the teeth.
Of course there is no “plan” just positions on a couple issues.
Heads he wins, tails we lose....................
Go over the cliff and no extension of the unemployment and no increase in the debt limit. Shut down non essential government services.
Once a proper budget has been submitted by the administration we can start to discuss which non essential services we want to bring back online and which should be discontinued. No more pork barrel, green projects, foreign aid, or other wasting of the people's funds.
How can he ask Congress for an up or down vote on his ‘plan’? Wouldn’t they have to write a bill first? Throwing the Constitution out the window and using new rules has me all confused.
I hope Boehner goes straight to the press and tells them that ultumatums aren’t negotiation and won’t work.
If Obama persists with his classless demeaning behavior toward Republicans (a certainty) Boehner should cancel the SOTU address. PLEASE!
- Eliminate Bush tax rate reductions
- Balanced Budget Amendment to Constitution
Once budget amendment is passed, then increase tax rates.
And, yet again, the pubbies hand over control of the conversation to the pretender and his minions.
Boehner hasn’t got the spine to do what needs to be done, and the rest of the pubbie cabal enable his weakness.
Pass a damn BUDGET, balanced to anticipated receipts (NO deficit). Pass a bill to make permanent the current tax rates, including the capital gains rates. Eliminate the inheritance tax.
Put those in place in the House. Call a press conference, and hand them over to the Senate for their (democrat controlled) action. Make a huge show out of it. Talk up the fiscal responsibility of the bills, and the fact that this is the best medicine for our irresponsible government spending.
Keep pubbie after pubbie in front of TV cameras and Radio microphones everywhere, all singing the same tune, “Here you go, Democrats. Now, the Senate can do an up-or-down vote for Zero and the 0bamunists.”
Keep the heat on the socialists. Make them the bad guy. Answer EVERY argument, with the facts and the truth...but, ANSWER EVERY ONE.
Stay in front of the cameras, in the press, on the radio. If the commies want a fight, then GIVE THEM A FIGHT.
Why do I have this sinking feeling that no one in a position of influence has the stomach for this fight?
“Demand” away @$$hat!
What are your other dictatorial commands?
I think that very darned little ever reaches the “frantic” stage in Washington.
I hope Boehner and the pubs don’t cave. If they are going to be “blamed” for something, might as well make it worth their while.
I’m not holding my breath, naturally. Besides, the actual “deal” will occur after New Year and be retroactive at least in some parts, IMO.
He wants the country to go over the cliff, then sit back while the Republicans get blamed. If it turns out that people start blaming him instead, he’ll come to the table with a serious offer.
It’s as simple as that.
Aks, demand, throw a hissy fit Obamaumau.
Who cares what you think.
Let’s do an up-or-down vote on whether we send Army Airborne or Marines to remove Buckwheat from our Whitehouse.
