Skip to comments.Obama turns down GOP proposal (Demands Boehner/Cantor/Ryan also surrender on tax increases...)
Posted on 10/11/2013 1:51:29 PM PDT by jimbo123
President Barack Obama spoke with House Speaker John Boehner on Friday but did not wholly accept the House Republican plan to open government, raise the debt ceiling and open budget talks, sources said.
Senior Republican sources say Obama is amenable to changes to mandatory and discretionary spending, but needs Republicans to commit to increasing governmental revenue.
(Excerpt) Read more at politico.com ...
The RINOS surrender to Obama on ObamaCare, Debt Ceiling and Sequester and it appears Tax Increases will be next.
Obama wants to raise taxes. I’m shocked!
No. The government gets plenty of revenue. Stop spending us into bankruptcy.
Remember.....it’s not ‘tax increases’ - it’s ‘revenue enhancement’.
Somewhere, George Orwell is smiling at the fact that he was a visionary.
Much, MUCH better than POLITICO’s agitprop.
“...Budget Committee Chairman Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., indicated to reporters that he does not support to the proposal pushed by Collins, Kind and Dent.”
As a retired Realtor this is precisely how I negotiated for my buyers......first we found a house they liked, then I had them sign a blank contract, gave it to the sellers and they would fill in the terms that worked for them.
Republicans: Get a fricking clue. Do not go anywhere near Obama. When he “summons” you just ignore him. Make him come crawling to you.
Gov Revenue? Raise Taxes? Never enough for the KommyDems
Now, Obastard is rubbing their faces in it until Bonehead & Co. come crawling on their hands and knees.
This is sickening, I cant stand to watch it anymore. gotta do some stuff around the house. Bye America it was nice knowing ya.
In other news: Obama also demanded that they take turns under his desk...might as well, because the RINOs are doing this philosophically if not in actuality.
Mister Boehner should add his resignation as SOH as part of the deal.
He also wants Boehner and McConnell to kiss his butt on South Park. Spokesmen for the two say they are eager to proceed.
The MSM claims that the republican party is at an all time low in the polls (due to the government shutdown)
Another poll says 53% of republicans think there should be a third party.
Let’s see 1+1=
Obama is demanding tax increases from the Ryan Plan pushed by Boehner and Cantor. You are getting the Ryan Plan mixed up with the Collins Plan.
I was just thinking that taxes are way too low. :)
I have a simple solution. Just increase the Obamacare premiums.
The GOP would have been better off to have just passed all this stuff off the bat. Now they have negotiated themselves into tax hikes. Greaaaat!!!!
Based on the title of the article, it seems like Obama met with Republicans just to be able to claim that he met with Republicans but having no intension to compromise with Republicans. If such was the case then the Republicans fell into a PC trap imo.
I think Reggie Love is out of a job now since Boehner, Ryan and Cantor are serving in that role for free.
I hope all those that vilified me when I suggested this is how they would cave.... slowly, will post me back and say, “You were right after all. Boner did end up dropping the Obamacare issue, re-opening the government and extending the debt limit.”
We were told, “It’s not caving. Learn the facts. He is only offering to delay Obamacare and that puts it in an election year. The House won’t budget any further..... yea right.
All because the idiot GOP moderates cannot get their act together and are not good spokespeople.
Btw Ryan was a lousy VP candidate. Politicians are bums.
Time is not Obama’s friend.
Towards the end of the housing bubble, I think people really were doing that.
Orwell would be shouting -
“It was a WARNING, not a GUIDEBOOK!”
Why should Obama concede anything to these pathetic weaklings? The Republican “leaders” may bark, but there’s no bite. He knows the party is deeply divided and incapable of dealing with him. He’s kicking them around like a rented mule.
Read the article- if you wish. I’m showing you a source that is less a Democrat party organ than POLITICO- though still estanblishment/liberal leaning.
I chose that part to quote as the most important, not the most germane to your post.
The most likely way we fail is the Republican Senators joining Harry to send a CR/debt limit bill to the House. It would be unstoppable and disastrous. Of course that is not the only danger but it is the most likely.
Obama is proven a liar.
His “I will not negotiate” statements are lies.
The opposition must keep pushing, he’s a pussy and will cave.
They just don’t have it in them to fight. They have no concept of winning. They are losers.
You are right. Taxes are too low. The 0bamacare penalties that tens of millions of Americans will be paying are not enough. We should all bay more. It is for the children. Excuse me while I go puke.
I have never been for a third party, but the RINOs have totally ruined us. We have to dump the GOP and start over. I can never vote for any of these wimps again!
ANYTHING from Politico can not be trusted, period.

My solution : Tax the Government
These clowns painted themselves into a corner because they kept making proposals without demanding that Obama/Reid make the next move.
The first move should have been to pass the individual appropriation bills, then demand that Obama and Reid counter. Until they countered with a concrete proposal, just do nothing.
Instead, you have RINOs tripping over themselves to offer up the next compromise without getting any concessions from Obama/Reid. They are negotiating against themselves.
Republicans should be letting the debt ceiling come. The Republicans would have all the leverage on the debt ceiling. If the debt ceiling is reached, it is instant balanced budget time. Obama would be the one wanting a deal, not the Republicans. Obama and his base live off the government trough, and once that spicket is turned off, Obama will be the desparate party.
He won’t be speaker after 2014. I think he and his “leadership” dorks have ticked off the conservatives to the point I believe many will just give up again and stay home.
Take care of things locally as much as possible. Many of the Tea Party folks got involved only recently and will go back to thinking “what difference does it make? We vote them in and they stab us in the back.”
The Dems don’t want to see the GOP go belly up. They’ve invested too much time and effort into learning how to manipulate them to lose all that now. They are useful idots and easy “adversaries” to manage.
I’ve often had that very thought, especially in regard to “The Theory and Practice of Oligarchial Collectivism”; Orwell’s brilliant critique of Soviet Communism.
As a retired realtor... you may see in this NBC tweet the same bad news I do:
“Luke RussertVerified account;@LukeRussert
#GOP aide tells me concern is mounting between differing positions on way forward on debt limit b/t Reid and WH.”
Or is it just car salesmen that do the “let me talk to the manager” gag...
Scariest news I’ve seen yet.
To paraphrase and old joke, what Obama did today was to publically establish the fact that Boehner is a whore... the only thing left to do now is negotiate the price.
Eff the bastard.
Obama and his base live off the government trough, and once that spicket is turned off, Obama will be the desparate party.
You’re making entirely too much sense. The GOP will never accept your logic. The GOP is stuck on stupid.

Decrease the rates.
You commie pig.
Never try to negotiate with communists, because...
When one starts to surrender-they will continue to do so..
Once again proves we elect people who can’t do basic math. If I cut spending, why do I need more money? Can it be anymore simple than that?
Johnny has five cars that are financed. His credit is maxed out. He’s on a new job and doesn’t earn as much as he did on his former job. His only option is to get rid of one of the cars.
The politicians believe the solution would be to demand his new boss pay him more than his last boss paid him. A lot more! Because Johnny wants to buy another car and he deserves it!
We need cuts in federal funding to state and local governments—not tax increases.
