I don’t believe Boner.
Letting Obama touch corporate taxes is a huge mistake. He’ll only increase the effective rate no matter how its advertised.
No more of this Grand Bargain, Sequestration, etc, etc. Pick an issue popular with 75% of the people and champion it. If the GOP doesn’t pick up some specific items to fight for, they’ll never pick up additional support. The past three years have been overwhelmingly confusing to the typical American voter...which is to Obama’s benefit. Look at the 90s. We championed welfare reform, pro-investment tax reform and reform in the legislative branch to clean up corruption. Easy to communicate in one sentence, and easy to rally support. The C wizards of smart are anything but.
Let me guess.. More government workers and union hacks?
How about get rid of all income tax rates period, both individual and business?
Any revenue generated by business will be misspent by Obama.
A "Grand Bargain" is the only hope the United States military has from being completely destroyed from within by its own government.
You talk again and again about how this is "Obama's Sequester", but you don't lift a finger to stop it.
As Speaker, you didn't even attempt to stop the 2011 cuts to the military of $487 Billion over ten years. Those were in addition to the $330 Billion cuts that began in 2009 (Rep "Buck" McKeon, the HASC Chairman, verified these numbers in an article he recently wrote). Then, you yourself negotitated and voted yes on the "formula" to make the military "pay for" 50% of all Sequestration cuts, despite it being only 17% of the budget, and you negotiated and allowed for Entitlements to be exempt from Sequestration!
Five months on, and the military is being decimated by Sequestration. The damage has already been deep and in some cases not reversible without years of healing.
The rumors are probably true Boehner, you cannot figure out which way to pee in the morning without asking Rep Eric Cantor to hold it for you. Why don't you simply resign and let him run for Speaker - you aren't doing your job anyway.
Dump O-CommieCare and jobs will start coming back
Boehner did not kill Obama’s grand bargain.
It was NO “grand bargain” and as a proposal there was nothing to kill, it was DOA = dead on arrival - before anyone said anything.
An article describing Boehner saying the right thing is put up, he's not playing at all with the administration on corporate taxes, and half the posts actually suggest he's doing something bad.
Have we become so crazy in our outrage that we can't even read?
I don't understand this comment. A rate cut is a rate cut. It's still more money in pockets.
Let me put it this way to Boehner and 0bama...
After all the spending and redistributive policies of the regime...a minuscule tax cut to businesses now ...won’t improve the economy.
The result for 2014?
The democrats can say...”see 0bama did that and it failed. It shows the republican philosophy doesn’t work.”
“cut the corporate tax rate, while using billions of dollars in revenue generated in business tax overhaul to fund a job-creation program.”
So the net result in increased taxes we end up paying as further “tribute” to Obama.
