Sure is easy to do.
Will the House pass this thing? I hope not.
The “fiscal cliff” deal still ignores the ZeroCare tax increases that begin this year and, in addition to whatever “deal” is eventually reached, still will have a negative impact on the economy. The issues under discussion conveniently ignore ZeroCare.
But, the disease remains. zero and the Congress are treating the obvious symptoms while ignoring the root cause of the disease. The Congress and the POTUS are all responsible for our poor economic situation and they are applying band-aids when major surgery is required. Having caused the problem means that they can’t fix it.
In the final analysis, the Congress is full of gutless cowards who are terrified of taking the REAL steps necessary for fixing our economic problems and stopping the spending. So, in typical, gutless fashion, they are, once again, kicking the can down the road.
We can rest assured that, barring any unforeseen miracle, we will see this problem again . . . . . . . . worse than it is today.
Why is it that the house is presumed to have an obligation to act on the senate bill, but the senate was not presumed to have an obligation to act on the house bill from back in August, long before the so-called fiscal cliff loomed?
Do NOT vote for this! You have got to listen to reason. If you vote for this, you are going to collapse our economy.
If the House passes this horror story, there will be a mass exodus from the Repub party. Boehner should be fired, regardless, as well as many other RINOs. No matter what, Repubs will be blamed so the House should stand up for America and its people — not their tragic politics.
Obama will take this INCREASED TAXATION money and spend it. He will NEVER significantly reduce the deficit. Not part of his socialist, anti-American agenda — just TAX AND SPEND.
This is a very dark time for the American Republic.
” calling it a rush job that raises taxes and delays most of the spending cuts planned for this year. “
For the coming 2014 Extortion-Care. The plan all along.
Get ready for Arbeitsziehungslager, the attempt to saddle on the backs of decent citizens 1. U.S. Bond collateral transformation (conversion of downgraded fraud bonds). 2. Same bond fund purchasers getting bailed out after selling fraud paper (MBS, m.backed paper, global bond funs, global funds, of 3. Fraud bank paper (non-collateralized.)
let the cliff happen
lower income sorts will feel a bite and maybe think twice before voting for more government\
and we get spending cuts..big ones
if that is what it takes then so be it
we have to reduce spending
Clause 1: All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives;
Pass it, then be ready to reiterate often, the spending problem caused by socialists. As for the default process, good riddance to big government. Government can’t continue big without real revenues of real value from a large and diverse manufacturing base unimpeded by regulations from top to bottom (local governments).
Real Americans will survive until then.
Tough talk. I hope we see actions to back this up.
IIRC, the only way this becomes law is if it ALSO passes the House of Representatives. If the Republicans in the House truly don’t like it, and don’t think it’s best for the country, then they should vote against it, and take the slings and arrows that will assuredly come their way.
@ House republicaves:
I do not care what you have to say about anything at all.
Defeat it or be defeated.
How about just plain unconstitutional?
See text of our leading document:
All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.
Congratulations for putting a band-aid on a severe gunshot wound.
The ship continues to sink.
Poe is my Rep. I seriously doubt he'll vote in favor of this crap...
