Pelosi: House Dems will look at deal after Senate passage
Washington Post ^ | 12/31/12 | Felicia Sonmez

Posted on 12/31/2012 7:37:54 PM PST by Libloather

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Monday night that she will present the fiscal cliff deal to House Democrats as soon as it’s approved by the upper chamber.

“I understand at the present time, Senate Democrats are meeting with the Vice President,” Pelosi said in a statement. “When a final agreement is reached and passed by the Senate, I will present it to the House Democratic Caucus.”

My guess is, she is in charge of the House since it looks like John Boehner has abdicated. It really doesn't matter, because as a conservative, I have zero, zip, nada representation in Washington.
16 Trillion, 25 Trillion, 50 Trillion, 100 Trillion. It really doesn’t matter, the smart guys have pissed this formally great nation away.

Sadly, it would still be in the realm of possibility that Boehner and Cantor are thinking of meeting with her in a sign good will, and bipartisanship.

I don't trust Boehner, Cantor, or McCarthy as far as I can spit. The Gutless Trio.

RE “Pelosi: House Dems will look at deal after Senate passage”

Bohner will pass a deal made with O in the House using Pelosi votes.
That was pretty much assured with rejection of Plan B, and maybe anyway. And no one will challenge Bohner as Speaker because no-one wants that job,

I got the Dem channel on now, Rev Al just called in and said he supports this deal because of the extension of unemployment comp, but he will support ANYTHING O does. He never disagrees with him.

They (MSNBC) are now also saying that many Dems in the Senate didn't like the $250K # and they like the $400/450K # much better because many Dems in lib states make big $$$.
This reminds me of my extend up to $100K idea back 2 months ago, to see if Dems go for it.

Boner is going to let everyone vote as they please this time-no arm twisting.

Needless to say no Republican from my state (SC) is going to vote for a tax increase on anybody.

The Dems and RINOs are gonna own this train wreck.

The story I read said that the African communist Ubanga expects the deal will pass only if enough “moderate” Republicans join the rats when the House votes.

RE :”Yeah, like the union bosses!”

There is a split here, some Dems demand taxes go up on over $250K, they are the true redistribution-ists(principled Marxists), others Dems make big $$$ or get $$ from them and they want the higher threshold $400K to protect them.
What does O want? To be seen as winning.

Obama is great at taking advantage of internal R party disagreements to destroy them, Rs need to learn how to play that cynical game.

I would have agreed with you until an hour ago.
Then I realized I was getting caught up in all these Bad DC Kabuki Dances.
I don’t think Bonehead is going to make his House Rino Monkeys vote
for any Tax Increases. His Rinos are the source of his power.
Instead, he will let the automatic tax increases come and then allow a
vote to Reduce Taxes on certain groups.
A vote for tax reduction is a much easier vote, than putting his valued
Rinos neck on the line.
I will be very surprised if the senate votes for a tax increase, as well.

If neither of our political parties is willing to stand firm on spending cuts, bankruptcy cannot be avoided.

So, if the Democrats and RINOs are able to approve the current budget deal that does not cut spending, our debt would be out of control and our bonds would turn to junk.

Why would Bonehead put Rinos, the source of his power neck on the line?
My prediction. He won’t. There will be no vote on raising taxes on the rich.

Agreed.
Any Republican who enables the African communist and his rats to confiscate more money from working, taxpaying, traditional American families (the “Republicans base”) in order to continue buying the votes of the ignorant moocher class (the “Democrat base”) will get primaried out of office so fast his ass will go through the door before his face does.
And they all know it.

Right. Boehner is waiting for the Bush tax cuts to expire tonight at midnight. Then tomorrow the vote will be on the “obama tax cuts”. Nobody will be voting to raise taxes. What an asshat.

A few years ago I was crossing the street - (50th st and 11th avenue in Manhattan for all of you who must know.) And as I was crossing, this truck made a right turn onto 50th and knocked me to the ground and cracked my skull.

As I was out, my heart stopped and I stopped breathing. I was dead for 4 minutes until the ambulance came and revived me.

But in that time while I was dead, I was mistakingly sent to hell, I found myself in a large stadium with millions of people all facing Satan who was giving a sermon in a lake of fire.

Suddenly an usher came up and told me my seat was waaay in the back, the very last row. When I asked him why, he said:

The row before you is all the people who helped Hitler get to power. The row after them is all the people who helped Stalin. The row after them is all the people who helped Mao.

I then saw that the seats in the very front were engulfed in flame, and Satan himself was vomiting the most horrible green acidic slime that could ever be imagined on top of the people sitting there. They were screaming in agony and the worst torturous hell and they couldn’t move and would be there forever and ever.

When I asked who those people where the angel said:

Those are the people who kept reelecting Nancy Pelosi.

This fourth round of agreement (today) is all from Democrat sources. The tide has turned,and the dems are trying to write the outcome. The media will soon (although they are a bit slow)reinforce the Dem line. Remember that both sides agreed to the outcome, and its time has come.Most of us agree the problem is spending, and we need to keep saying it, only louder! Drop your bellyaching and direct your energy towards the spending problem. Your support is needed for the few (elected) who understand this!

Yep. Only voting to reduce taxes on certain income levels.
The end result will be taxes on the rich anyway.
Just a lot of bad acting, deception, grandstanding and Kabuki Dances
to get the rich to pay more taxes.
I wonder what the DC Hacks will do to entertain us on the coming debt ceiling.

I thought all bills were supposed to originate in the House then go to the Senate. They got this backwards???

If so, I think I remember another time in recent history that happened. Anyone care to guess?

Yep, this fiasco is a good parallel to how kenyan kenyancare was force fed. And turning this into a tax cut vote is old time beltway jive. Total surrender monkey buffoonery. B&M are toast.

Where is JimRob to tell them BYE? LOL.

We are royally screwed, and screwed by those who said they would never raise taxes. All I can hope for is the House will not pass it, but if the Dems are on board, and they succeed in bringing it to a vote, it’s a done deal and the American people lose again.

Can someone refresh my memory about procedures for a discharge petition in the House? Is it possible that Pelosi can force a vote via a discharge petition? Or will the installation of the “New” Congress on Thursday defeat a discharge because of shortness of time?

Thanks,

Gwjack

A chosen few decide who gets taxed and how much behind closed doors and the ELECTED rest of them get to see it after the fact. Is this liberty or tyranny? I say in the next 4 years we have some fun a rake these bastards publically and relentlessly in all venues and forms of media over the coals again and again until we drive them OVER THE CLIFF
