In two words....HE WON !!!!
They will compromise by taking it up to $1.01 of spending cuts for $41 of tax increases.
“Do we believe Cantor will shoot this down?”
He better. I am getting more and more angry with all of this. They have to cut spending because all that money is borrowed and putting us deeper into the "hole".
Do we believe Cantor will shoot this down?
He’ll vote for it.
Cantor has shown himself to be a weasel. He’s posturing for the folks back home in his district right now, but he will throw them down the stairs when the time comes to vote.
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.
Cantor: “I opposed the fiscal cliff deal before I was for it”.
Unless he thinks he has enough support to replace Bonehead as Speaker, I see Cantor falling in line with the other RINOs.
This is nothing more than an obligatory statement by Cantor. He already knows the fix is in as well.
I'm done with the GOP. I'm changing to Independent. Rush can harp all he wants about unity. If this is unity, I don't want it. Leaving the GOP is my last and only form of power i have. Let the GOP die!
After years of multi-hundred-billion-dollar money-printing by the Fed with no negative consequences so far, many people have come to believe that this method of financing our debt can go on indefinitely.
But we know from history that that isn’t the case, and that severe problems will occur if Congress passes over-the-cliff deals like Obama’s.
There are organizations whose job it is to warn investors about governments that refuse to stop profligate spending — the bond-rating agencies like Standard & Poor’s, etc.
If Obama’s budget deal is approved, with its minimal spending cuts that would assure trillion-dollar budget deficits ad infinitum, the rating agencies would be as blameworthy as our Congress if they didn’t respond by sending out alarm bells to warn investors about our increasingly risky bonds.
But will the bond agencies do their job? Unless they lower U.S. bond ratings after Obama’s deal is approved, we will know that they will have abandoned their responsibilities.
The establishment knows Boehner is done and, to avoid a real conservative from taking over as speaker, Cantor is being given the green light to oppose the bill in order to win conservative support. Cantor will be the next (establishment) speaker of thew house and conservatives will cheer thinking they are actually getting change.
If the House ‘shoots it down’, I guarantee that 0bama will issue an EO to reverse the House’s decision. Mark it.
Cantor is one of the worst Rinos.
I heard he was all for it and waited until it had enough voted to pass and then voted no in order to save his sorry ass!!!
