    As long as you stand firm and not waver, we’ll have your back. But the moment you capitulate, you’re on your own. Personally, I haven’t much faith in the GOP RINO leadership. They’ve haven’t shown much, if any, willingness to not spend the peoples’ money, and then some, for quite a long time.

    I don’t trust Weepy to stand hs ground at all. Besides, it’s not like he’s been a supporter of the TEA Party and its call for more limited government.

    He’ll cave because there are cocktail parties he wants to attend.

  • sack of potatoes

    He says the right words, but somehow I just don’t believe Boehner. He has a history of this.

    I’m afraid that I have lost faith in this kind of thing. The only promises that I trust from politicians are the ones that will affect me negatively. Those I have no reason to doubt.

    Hey Weeper of the House. . . before you Cry me a River
    remember that when a business or family has massive deficits. . banks and advisors tell them the FIRST thng is to: iCUT BACK. .REDUCE THE SPEND & BURN

    The person or company or entity CONTROLS !))% of the spending. .it is in THEIR CONTROL so they need to exercise restraint. . . BEFORE COUNTING ON ADDITIONAL REVENUE or INCOME. . .

    It really IS THAT SIMPLE!

    Here is my message to Missouri Congress members…….

    I sat down and made a list. And this is what I came up with.

    Federal Income Tax.
    Social Security Tax.
    Medicare Tax
    Inheritance Tax
    Capital gains tax.

    State Income Tax.
    Real Estate Tax.
    Personal Property Tax.
    Utility Taxes
    Up to 6 different telephone taxes.
    Gasoline Tax (Federal and State).
    Cigarette Tax (Federal and State).
    Liquor Tax (Federal and state).
    Highway tolls
    Service Charge Tax (air fare, hotels, taxi cabs, etc).

    (fees paid to the government).
    Business license
    Building Permit
    Vehicle License Registration.
    Driver’s license
    Marriage License
    Electrical license
    Occupancy permit
    Food License
    Fishing License
    Hunting License

    In Missouri, we pay more than 7% SALES TAX ON ALMOST EVERYTHING WE BUY!

    The government already gets more of our money than we do!
    Obamacare will add more taxes and Obama wants to take more of our money?

    Stop giving money to foreign countries who vote against us in the U.N.! Stop funding frivolous earmarks and wasting tax payer dollars! Stop spending our money like there’s no tomorrow! We should demand a moratorium on all unnecessary government spending! If I appear angry, I AM! Unfortunately, we have a bunch of eunuchs in Congress who are willing to be lap dogs to this administration and don’t have enough gumption to stand up and do the right thing for our country!

    Man, I wanna believe Boehner. Maybe he has grown a pair. If he caves, screw him.

    The GOP won’t cave…right. And the tooth fairy exists.

    Better to join the parasites and looters and grab what you can with both hands before the party is over. My family tells me that in the USSR Party members had it fairly good–until it all came crashing down.

    As most here have said, it sounds good, Speaker Boehner. What can we voters do to assist you? I’m in Rhode Island, so my Senators are a lost cause, but I’m willing to help you reach your goal, Mr. Speaker. Lead the way, sir. What is the plan to make your statement a reality? None of us can afford failure. Enlist America, go over the heads of the media with your message. It Can Be Done.

    Massive Anti-Obama Rally @ “Obama’s” Inauguration Day!!!

    Whether it’s massive or not will depend on YOU. Since our officials and parties won’t fight, will YOU?

    We Have A Dream: 500,000+ Anti-Obama Activists Arrive In Washington D.C. During Obama’s Inauguration Ceremony …

    If you are unsatisfied with President Barack Obama’s reelection win and you further feel that he will ultimately destabilize America completely, then let us join together with bold Anti-Obama signs clearly stating our main grievances concerning unemployment, the economy, Benghazi, foreign policy matters, war status or whatever may perhaps be your main concern(s) on Inauguration Day, January 21, 2013 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – Federal Holiday), at the West Front of the Capitol Building, which is currently being reported in the news for ticket purchase.

    However, all Anti-Obama supporters shall gather at the National Mall, Fourth Street NW, which is a non-ticketed free area for gathering at 9:00 am for an all-day event.

    Help us to realize our dream … READ ON!!!

    What Is Obama’s Plan?

    The massive debt run up by our rogue government is certain to collapse the economy if something isn’t done about it very soon. The community organizer in the White House is supposedly the president, so Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) wants to know what his plan is to address this existential threat:

    Since there is no chance of getting a straight answer from Obama, I’ll take the liberty of answering the Senator’s question. Obama’s plan is right here.

    Obama Depicts Republicans as Kidnappers–Says don’t let the GOP hold middle class tax cuts “hostage”


    The “hostage” thing must test well in focus groups, because the Democrats are fond of the word.

    From President Obama’s weekly address:

    So let’s begin by doing what we all agree on. Both parties say we should keep middle-class taxes low. The Senate has already passed a bill to keep income taxes from going up on middle-class families. Democrats in the House are ready to do the same thing. And if we can just get a few House Republicans on board, I’ll sign this bill as soon as Congress sends it my way.

    But it’s unacceptable for some Republicans in Congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage simply because they refuse to let tax rates go up on the wealthiest Americans. And if you agree with me, then I could use your help. Let your congressman know what $2,000 means to you. Give them a call. Write them an email. Or tweet them using the hashtag “My2K.” That’s My2K.

    I’d suggest the right counter “#My2K” with an even more frightening “#Your6Tr.”

    If there are “hostages” in this situation, they are current and future generations who are being bound and gagged by insurmountable debt that is leading (and has led in many instances) to horrible economic consequences.

    Here’s the video:


  • JoyO

    I am so tired of hearing the Democrats complain about Bushhhhhh’s tax cuts for the rich that I really don’t care if my taxes have to go up to prove that Bushhhhhhhh’s tax cuts were for every one! Besides, I’ve come to the conclusion that we need people at all levels of income to be paying taxes — that way they will understand that the only money our BIG GOVERNMENT has is the money it has taken via taxes from ALL AMERICANS. I lived the first 11 years of my life in Appalachian poverty — yet, I do not think I should expect the RICH TO PAY MORE than they already do. The American Dream is to succeed and become all you can be. It is a crying shame that the Progressives want to punish success. If they keep on winning elections, taxpayers will quit working and expect the government to support them. Only the political elite and the Liberal college professors are too dumb to figure this out!!!

    If Boehner sticks with this it will make him a conservative hero.

    No, he’s going to be an idiot. Why? Because what he will get in return for the compromise that is surely coming (assuming he’ll be able to convince the rest of the House to accept it) will be very little or nothing at all.

  • donh

    Boehner will trade a 1 trillion dollar tax hike for a set of hand autographed Obama golf balls , a personal trip on Air force One, a promise by Harry Reid to recite the pledge of Allegiance on the Senate floor, and 5 billion in cuts to the department of rural subsidies in 2016.

    i made was not labeling the link KAVBUKI PLAYA’S..

    besides, if you bothered to check the info at any source you deem to be
    credible, it says about the samo samo.. me, i did check, and decided on
    that one because i agree with the writers opinions even before i knew
    the article existed, go figure..

    fawk it… call the dems on their bluff.
    craft them a bill with: bush tax cuts made permanent in the system,
    cut spending by trillions, and some form of repeal on 0bamacare or massive tune down
    and give the dems the middle class tax cuts in turn.

    …this we know the dems will be unwilling to pass in the senate…
    if we go over the fiscal cliff because of that or because 0bama veto’s it’s on them

  • bg


    i don’t agree with calling them the BUSH TAX CUTS, especially since they
    expired on JANUARY 11, 2011, and now belong to Obama, who gave the
    RICH a tax cut this year, question is, will he do it again next year, or will
    BARRY and everyone else still be calling them the BUSH TAX CUTS for the
    RICH, and continue ignoring all the good they did for the middle class??
