Senate Repubs were supposed to meet with Boehner, right now, but it seems that has now been delayed to Tuesday morning, per FOX
Does it include an across-the-board spending cut? If not, then it’s worthless.
I have heard the medical device tax is one of the main ways they were planning on getting funds for Obamacare?
They’ll repeal that tax and charge the general public a bigger tax in general for it. Bend over America here it comes again!
Who cares about the medical device tax cut. I don’t manufacture medical devices. I could care less if they get a tax cut or not. Why does the GOP continue to fall on it’s sword? (I know stupid question) Listen to “We the People”!
The Dems have a long history of not keeping their part of any agreement they have ever made with the ‘Pubbies.
Why should we think they’ll keep this one? This is just another episode of “kick the can down the road”!
The medical device tax is not a concession. Everyone agreed it was bad and had to go. There had better be budget cuts in this.
We need a few months of focus on one thing - the disaster called Obamacare. Once people see it isn't free and the supposed subsidies suck, it just could die of its own weight.
Clearly, even if the users loved it (won't), once the numbers start coming out of how expensive the actual care is to the gov’t (premiums won't be close to covering the costs), people might just rise up.
Points were made but we just keep getting killed by the press. Let's get past Christmas (there, I actually said it - not “the holidays”!) and deal in 2014; closer to, probably, the most important non-Presidential election in years.
The house needs to shoot this down.
Just keep the debt ceiling in place until 2014. Obama is bluffing. He’ll have to cut spending and there will be no default.
From Yahoo News:
“The Senate Democratic aide said that the final deal will probably include some income-verification measure with regards to obtaining subsidies for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.
But it wouldn’t be anything “too impactful that changes ability to enroll in any meaningful way,” the aide said. The House passed a bill in September along party lines that would require the Department of Health and Human Services inspector general to set up a verification program before it grants subsidies.
There is a rollback in an Obamacare tax.
And talks continue into an election year...which Reid et al did not want.
Why not make the 15% nonessential part of government permanent, subtract that from the budget, and then there won’t be any need to raise the debt limit.
Sure looks like doormat RINOS Boehner and McConnell are a-fixin’ to cave in AGAIN to the Obama-Reid Regime.
time to get on the phones to the usual GOPe suspects:
especially the turncoat ayotte. you know: mcconnell, cornyn, corker, collins, murky, alexander, etc., etc.
Flipping dials to get feel from all sides, came across Gloria Borger on CNN, they just released the latest poll from ABC/WASHPOST
Poll had blame this way...
I don’t buy the science of political polling, but nevertheless I thought that was pretty good for R, seeing the source
Gloria Borger needs to learn to count, she said 20 points difference there???
Gloria it`s only 13 points difference

(a) the public sees Obamacare for what it is (this will take a few weeks, but only if the government is under the gun): and
(b) the public realizes that the sky will not fall (no default, life goes on).
Today's 'deal' destroys the progress to date and takes the pressure off. No one will want to hear from Ted Cruz and the Tea Party caucus again in January. It will be old news. The public will conclude that Cruz lost and Obama won.
What is the rationale, in the public's mind, for delaying only the House leverage but not Obamacare? There is only one reason and it is that Cruz lost the PR battle. It is then over; there is no rerun. We can't stop and then start again. The voters won't tolerate that.
In addition, the shutdown is hamstringing the immigration amnesty conspirators. Remove it and we'll see an immigration bill going through the House before Thanksgiving.
Today's 'deal' would pave the way for amnesty next month and single-payer healthcare before Obama's term ends.
Ted Cruz was right. The only time to stand against this monster is now.
