Claire McCaskill Feels Sorry For John Boehner For Not Wanting to Raise Taxes

Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill feels sorry for Boehner for not wanting to raise taxes. The liberal from Missouri says Boehner is under pressure from the extreme “far right wing of the Republican Party” who support lower taxes, balanced budgets and limited government.
TPM reported:

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said that she feels “almost sorry” for House Speaker John Boehner during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday, explaining that Boehner is in a tough spot because of the far-right wing of the Republican Party.

“I feel almost sorry for John Boehner,” McCaskill said. “There is incredible pressure on him from a base of his party that is unreasonable about this. And he’s gotta decide, is his speakership more important, or is the country more important. And in some ways, he has got to deal with this base of the Republican Party, who Grover Norquist represents.”

McCaskill continued to talk about Norquist: “And you know, everybody’s elevated Grover — I mean, I met him for the first time this morning, nice to meet him — but you know, who is he? Why is he this guy that has captured so much attention in this?”

    I have three Hostess Cakes. Government takes one. They then come back after eating it, and say “we need to take one more.” I say NO, I bought them, I will keep a larger and fair share of MY Hostess Cakes that I earned! … yep, looks like I’m one of those far right wing people.

    RE #2 … a silly analogy yes, but I’m eating a yummy SuzieQ and will NOT share! :p

    If money from 2% can “help” the economy so much, why not get even more tax money from 100%? Is this about helping the economy or punishing the few who managed to make and/or invest their income??

    Put a limit on it, just like the Bush tax cuts had a limit.

    #4 …

    100% does not pay taxes and taking even more tax money from the percent that does, will do nothing but grow the over bloated government to a larger entity as they continue to spend up what is given and then more. It’s an illusion that collecting more tax will ‘fix’ this governments economic situation.

    Glad to hear Senator McCaskill speak up and it’s “almost” feels sorry. In other words she doesn’t.

    And many thanks to Missourians for Todd Akin.

    We on the left really appreciate it. 6 more years of a dem from Missouri.

    Long live the Tea Party!

    With any respect that may be due, who the heck is Claire McCaskill? I mean I know she is an elected Senator, but I find that to be a reprehensible profession. And given her proclivity for graft and corruption, she should not throw stones at anyone. Her time will likely come.

    OBAMA ACTS LIKE NAPOLEON: The President’s offer (on the fiscal cliff deal) is not a serious one, if compromise were what he was seeking. It betrays his real purpose: to drive the Republicans and the nation over the fiscal cliff. In a move Napoleon would have approved, he is attempting to turn his narrow victory in November into decisive victory in January.

    I like that, put a time limit on it, like the Bush tax cuts had a time limit. That’s good! Made my day.

    if boehner “decides what is good for the country” he will cut taxes to take every penny he can out of the hands of the politicans that have spent this country to the verge of bankruptcy. he will put that money back into the hands of the people that worked for it and earned. they will spend much more wisely that politicans.

    “There is incredible pressure on him from a base of his party that is unreasonable about this.”

    What exactly is unreasonable about being determined to put the brakes on government overspending?

    Norquist just needs to keep his mouth shut!! He doesn’t represent anyone, let alone the Constitutionalists in both Houses. And Clare what is so extreme about low taxes, having a budget, and a limiting the government as to what they can “do for you, and to you.” as Obama said in an interview when asked about the Constitution. He said that he believed that the Constitution was “…a document of negative rights of the government as to what they can do for you and to you.”

    McCaskill is another Socialist/Communist, I don’t see much difference between the two really, they both are anti-American, and she feels sorry for Boehner for all the wrong reasons. All she stands for is the usurption of the Constitutional authority of that document that she doesn’t believe in either. She needs to be arrested for conspiracy to commit Treason along with all the other Socialist Democrats in the entire government. The State Dept. needs to be shut down immediately before Obama authorizes Agenda 21, the Law of the Seas Treaty(isn’t that right? Or something. I’m not sure about the proper title, besides who cares), the Small Arms Treaty, and all the rest.

    I’ll bet Clair is in favor of Agenda 21 and can’t wait to vote for it!!

    Every day it gets closer and closer to all out “Acting On Our Constitutional Right”!!

    I mean, come on you greedy Tea Party anti-Americans.

    When the country is in trouble and facing the fiscal cliff, Republicans allow the uber rich to shirk their constitutional responsibilities.

    Sleep well, rich greedy Tea Party.
