Reid: I don’t understand
Boehner’s brain

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Alexander Bolton

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/29/2012 3:31:36 PM

Democrats and Republicans are so far off in their expectations for the next steps of fiscal talks that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) claimed he cannot understand the Republican Speaker’s brain. Senate Democratic leaders are growing frustrated by what they say is the lack of a specific plan from House Republicans to raise tax revenues or cut entitlement spending. Democrats say the onus is on Republicans to provide a counteroffer to their plan to let the Bush-era tax rates on families earning above $250,000 expire. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has told reporters the ball

There´s no irony in that statement. s/o Hey Dingy Harry, instead of running around making asinine statements how about passing a budget and 0bama putting something in writing?

I hope the Repugs do not lose the game on who is responsible for the economy.

Let the Dimms raise taxes on the "rich", but draw a line in the sand on deficit spending. The DImms have no moral foundation for their spending habits and this will be seen by the MSN and the electorate.

That´s because a brain is a foreign thing to you, Harry.
How about the Republicans propose a tax cut..something along the line of 10% for the middle class? How about that, Harry? You ARE for the middle class, right?

I´m torn between letting them have everything they want or simply walking away until they make an offer.

I don´t care about the ´cliff´ ...

... go ahead and jump.

Just make sure the onus is on them when you do.

We´ll have two years to get our candidates ready to win.

And those two years will be Hell for everyone ...

... including those on the left.

I think it was the nation´s great loss that Romney did not win, but what was he thinking meeting with Obama today? A photo will be released making Obama look ´bipartisan,´ all the while he is a sheer failure as a leader in these budget negotiations (as in so many other areas.)

Obama has been beating to death the rich don´t pay their fair share baloney. How about a proposal that only the rich foot the bill for the governments taxes, only? Obama and his ilk would probably have a conniption at such a proposal, as they always depended on the ordinary sheeple workers to foot the majority of their tax revenues. Obama´s War on the Rich would certainly implode with such a proposition?

#1, I am upset with the professional politicians who the voters put into office over and over again, but I really find it objectionable when someone here slanders my entire party by calling them something that the leftists or democrats would call them out of sheer nastiness. That said, the Republican Party is the people, the citizens, NOT the professional pols who don´t represent us like they should.

House should pass a bill providing 10% tax cut to the middle class with a 70% tax rate for anyone making a million dollars or more involved in the movie making industry. When the democratic senate votes it down, pass another bill wiht a 20% tax cut to the middle class with a 80% tax rate for anyone making a million dollars or more involved in the movie making industry. When the democratic senate votes that down pass another bill that provides a 30% tax cut for the middle class.....you get the idea.

If the House GOP doesn´t get a good deal with cuts NOW - then they should call Obama´s bluff and let ALL the Bush Tax Cuts expire. After the New Year they can bargain for tax reform NOT restoring the Bush cuts for the middle class.

Obama owns this economy and he owns he presidency´s leadership role. The pubbies have plenty of time to make thier case before NOv 2014.

The dems demand a detailed and complete grand plan that simultaneously raises revenue 10 fold and supports entitlement spending with a proven deficit reduction plan covering the next decade. Anything short of this is considered derelection of duty and obstructionism.

The left requires this monumental and detailed master fiannacial plan to counter their three word bumper sticker solution to all our financial woes:

"Tax the Rich".

Hint to the dems, leadership is not demanding your opponent provide reams of detaisl and a complete solution while you chant worn out campaign slogans.

How about we see a Democrat plan with one thousandth the detail they are demanding of the republicans? Or is that asking too much?

Its soooo much easier to simply chant "tax the evil rich".

Harry´s wholly owned democrat-marxist senate has not produced a budget in over three years and he does not understand Boehner´s brain. If we only had a Press in this country to tie Harry down on the corruption he has created in the senate many problems would start to subside. Ain´t gonna happen. Train wreck is ON TIME, America´s producers tighten seat belts were going over that cliff !!!

Enough. No further talks on revenues, fiscal cliff or otherwise until we see a concrete proposal from the Dems for real and immediate spending cuts. It seems it won´t come from the President (of course), but are there ANY adults to talk to on the other side?

Hey Harry cut spending and forget about raising taxes...it is a dumb idea. Just like every other normal person or family, it is past time for th US Government to balance the checkbook.

They´ve had three specific plans. The two Ryan budgets and the Cut, Cap and Balance budget.

Dust those off, put them in a bronze binder and beat the snot out of Reid with ´em.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship."
