  1. If Boner weren’t a bonehead, he’d put the president’s ridiculous tax-and-spend plan to a vote and call his bluff.

    Or, better yet, pass the tax hike with a provision that rates revert back to Bush levels on July 1, 2013 *unless* the President implements $100 Billion in spending cuts.

  2. V, you aim far, far too low. :)

    Like I said in the previous plan, the GOP should go over the cliff, allow the tax rates to hit, and then send Obama a bill in July 2013 that works very simply: tax rates cut to 2007, Federal spending cut to 2007 levels, all budgeting henceforth done on the 2007 baseline.

    And then when he rants and refuses to sign it, they simply go to the American public and say, “Look, Obama claims he wants to cut your taxes, but he won’t give up ridiculous spending and deficits”.

    Then, as Obama and his idiots Pelosi and Reid try to spin and spin and spin, hammer them with CBO score after CBO score showing how the Republican plan BOTH cuts taxes and balances the budget, while the Obama Party explodes the deficit.

  3. Right, and all those taxes for the middle class in Obamacare are all the GOP’s doing.

  4. I’m being persuaded that the GOP should let it all burn, …and take the bad publicity for 6-9 months ’til the Electorate realizes what a flaming-bag-of-poo the Democratic Party left on America’s porch.

  5. I agree, it’s time to let it burn. And I say this as someone who will get torched.

  6. I agree with the sentiment of “Let it burn” but the slogan is too easy for idiot leftists to twist and demogogue. I prefer “Send them the bill.”

  8. “Can Obama ever stop playing politics?”

    Nope, he’s a leftist; and something all leftists will tell you is that everything is political. They have no other way of viewing the world.

  9. He cannot stop playing politics because then he would have to show leadership not just talk about it.

    He has no other skills.

    The ultimate affirmative action candidate.

  10. Of course he can´t. He has to win. His attitude is my way or the highway. Getting the Republicans to rubber stamp his tax increase on the top 2% and increased spending and and maybe carte blanche in raising the debt limit at will; he´ll call it bipartisan solution.

  11. “stop playing politics”

    “2. The description of tax reform makes little sense. It’s feasible to raise $800 billion from base broadening over ten years, but not to raise $800 billion and finance a significant cut in tax rates. “
