4. Obama presents initiative to lower middle class tax rates to 'pre- fiscal cliff' levels.
Dares GOP House to block it.
Wouldn't such a bill have to originate in the House? Do the Republicans not still hold the House?

It could be attached as an amendment to almost any senate bill.

Based on some of the conversations at play, I'm not sure.

Then they should pass a bill that allows the "wealthy" tax cuts to expire by 75%. Don't know why they are fighting this so hard.



Because just like Obama has promised his people he would stick it to the rich and they would get their "fair share"...Republicans promised the people who voted for them that they would not allow taxes to be raised on anyone.

This. They still do hold the house and have for 16 of the last 18 years.

And all spending is supposed to originate in the house.

And the GOP will take the vast majority of the blame as well.

And your world would be better. To bad it isn't reality. It sucks that all you care about is your team winning the blame game.

Didn't half the people on this board want to go over the cliff a week ago?


100% for it.


Same here.

GOP is gonna get blamed no matter fricking what.

May as well get a nice chunk of that 47% back on the income tax rolls (you know, the ones that "evil" GWB and those "evil, greedy" GOP Congressment voted to remove from the rolls in 2001 and 2003) so that maybe they'll start giving a shite about taxes and tax rates again.

Plus, SS payroll tax "cut" goes away, thus adding a little more time before it becomes completely insolvent (I mean, seriuosly, shouldn't we care about the solvency of SS??????)

The best part is that all of the "emergency" increases in UE go away and it's back to 26 weeks (from 99 weeks). This way, all those people that are gonna get their asses fired because of O-care, or any of the other terrible fricking policies of this administration, won't still be collecting a gubbmint check come the mid-term elections

I just like to point out the obvious. I get amused when they take their politically suicidal no new tax stance.

Thus the term "supposed"

if the republicans want to get bitchy, take it to the SCOTUS. They would like rule in their favor. The constitution is really clear on the topic.

Didn't Obamacare start in the Senate and was ruled in favor by the SCOTUS as a tax? Or am I mistaken?

I'm no GOPer; but if blame for saving your generation from massive deficit spending of the generation preceding yours gets your banana to dance, I don't know what to say.

Are you really that fricking clueless?

Really?

Think about who gets screwed if we hit the cliff. The military will get cut. Taxes go up on everyone who pays taxes. The GOP gets the blame. Obama has to be jizzing in his pants.


Obama does not give a rats arse about the military. The military cuts will involve retired military paychecks and TriCare. The military has no voice like Maddow and Sharpton el al progressives have.

Obama is no longer playing sneaky with his JOurnOlists. They are marched right in to the oval office.

Obama does not give a rats arse about the middle class. Obama's plan is to utilize his NO VOTER ID for the up and coming elections and stack the D's back into the majority with fakeass Ashley Judd women votes. Boehner can KMA but it does no good to bitch about this now.

Obama wants full dictatorship control,majority and radical SCOTUS appointments to completely destroy America. The media will carry this water all the way for him.

The GOP should let the radical marxist drive his fakeass ObamaCar toy all the way off the cliff. There is still a majority in this country that has half a brain and see what is going on. Obama would have lost without voter fraud but the media and Obama don't want you to know this. The GOP should shove the normal bipartisan as can be plan in his face so he vetoes it. The pitchforks or votes will rear and show Obama the door.

There is no way in hell Obama rules and completely destroys this country. We know who wins in the end.

On the issue of raising taxes, the Repubes need to ask George H. how his "Read my lips" statement worked. He agreed to higher taxes and the dems crucified him on this. They should stand their ground on not raising taxes. Hell, if there are no spending cuts, this money will just be spent and the budget continues to increase.
