Skip to comments.Reports: House GOP lining up behind Boehner’s plan (the GOP has sold the tea party out)

[T]he opposition bloc led by [Jim] Jordan appears to be crumbling, as leaderships message seems to be sinking in. Sources tells NRO that a number of members who were confirmed no votes against the Boehner plan announced during the meeting that they would be voting yes. One of those members, Rep. Blake Farenthold (R., Texas) told reporters that while he would like to snap my fingers and change the world like I Dream of Genie of Samantha on Bewitched, Republicans need to take what we can get.

some pubies will not be returning to congress in 2012.
What’s the saying, defeat ripped from the jaws of victory?
Once the House dems united to say they would unanimously vote no, they guaranteed passage.
My hope is that this will spur the Tea Party to even greater action against both parties. More primary challenges = fewer RINOs.
What does it matter, Senators arent voting for it and Bam Bam said hed veto??? right?
It better or we are sunk.
It’s time for the tea party to officially start its own politian party. The GOP is doing nothing to help the country, and I won’t even comment on the Dems....
Brit Hume called it Monday night. “Boehner won’t have the votes tonight, Tuesday, but he will on Wednesday”.
I take it this board prefers default? Or maybe I just don’t understand what the preferred plan is if Boehner’s is not acceptable.
Look on the bright side, when this all shakes out we will have more people to hang for treason.
When looking at a count on a vote like this it’s much more accurate to look at liberals vs. conservatives rather than republicans vs. democrats. Liberal republicans (read: RINO’s) vote along with liberal democrats (read: All of them) against conservative republicans (read: the TEA party and some other specific examples)
It’s a disgrace.
No, this is ok.
The good: Any blood will be on Reid’s and 0zer0’s hands. And it brings the issue up again next spring. That is no small thing. No tax increases.
The bad: no meaningful cuts whatsoever, brings down morale as we realize we can’t do it all right now, the GOP leadership felt it necessary to blow sunshine up our asses.
So far I have few problems with the TEA GOP. Waiting to see what the TEA does after this brewing by the establishment GOP. My problem is with the establishment GOP. I want to invite the establishment GOP to TEA.
There won’t be a default. Our debt service obligations are approximately $20 billion per month. Revenues to the Treasury are between $175 and $225 billion per month.
“Pass the plan or we’ll default” is pure fear-mongering bull$hit.
It is all a waste of time.
Rush said that if they just froze the budget ...no base line increases saving over 10 years 980 Billion
We need the senate and white house and not Mitt
I sure hope those GOP pukes don’t call me for a donation again. I’m usually well spoken and calm when I turn them down, listing legitimate reasons.
Next time, they will hear the sailor in me.
I’d chip in some cash.
