G.O.P. Leaders in
House Pull Tax Bill,
Citing Lack of Votes

New York Times, by Jonathan Weisman

WASHINGTON – House Republican leaders abruptly pulled their fallback tax bill from the floor Thursday night, conceding that they did not have the votes to pass it. “The House did not take up the tax measure today because it did not have sufficient support from our members to pass,” Speaker John A. Boehner said in a statement. “Now it is up to the president to work with Senator Reid on legislation to avert the fiscal cliff.” The decision was a major setback for the speaker, who was pushing his so-called Plan B to

It may be bad for Boehner, but its good for our side. Let the dems make us a good-faith offer in front of the nation... or not.

Its time to call their bluff.

and go home.

Then come back and make them permanent.

I guess I am missing something. Under what scenario are our taxes not going up on someone on January 1st?

When I called my congressman´s office this afternoon, the man I talked to sounded very happy that I asked for a no vote on Plan B. That pleases me because I wasn´t sure of how the congressman would vote.

1) Extend tax cuts.
2) Go home.
3) If Senate fails to pass, or Obama vetoes, say to voters, ´´We passed a bill to cut your taxes. The Senate/President wouldn´t let it take effect. Go talk to them, not to us.´´

I don´t think this is going to play out the way they are hoping. Everyone´s taxes will go up, then obama will present a bill to lower middle class taxes. Boehner did everything he could to avoid that. Unfortunately, many in the center will be convinced that the Republicans really are the party that caters to the rich, and we may lose again in 2014 and 2016 as a result.

The House GOP voted earlier this year to extend the bush tax cuts. It is waiting for action on Harry Reid´s desk. They also approved an alternate method of cuts vs. sequestration. All of this has been waiting on action in the Senate. The ball is in the Dems court and has been for many months.
Boehner´s plan B was a sellout, it had no spending cuts. Sometimes the hard thing has to be done to get this country back on track. I hope we get a new Speaker and other House leadership. They are all spineless, weak occupants of Congress.

Boehner gets to shrug his shoulders, hold his palms up, and say his hands are tied. Weakness can be a good negotiating position. Tax bills come out of the Ways & Means Committee. Spending bills have to originate in the House (Harry Reid notwithstanding). The GOP will get blamed regardless of what happens. It´s better to die standing than on your knees. Take the cliff, and just keep sending the Senate the same bill over and over until they pass it. And each time, give them a little less.

Mark Levin was urging his listeners to call congress to demand a no vote on the plan B.

Renew Bush´s tax schedule and then stay in session to prevent any appoinment from the criminals in the White House.

Republicans are in a hell of a position- lose-lose-lose! With a band of idiots making up the electorate, this nation is now quite literally, the proverbial ´toast´. It ended with the intellectual take over of the school system back in the 60´s- we just did not know it. Better save up some soup, it´s going to be a very harsh fall to the bottom.

It just amazes me how the party that hates tax cuts is using them as a political wedge on the republicans.If the GOP caves on raising taxes,one way or the other,they´ll get blamed for a recession,that´s coming anyway,primarily because Obamacares hidden taxes and premium increases starting already.

The left doesn´t want Boehner to take the rap but intransigent tea party members.

Obama´s network of spies and dirt diggers probably have something on Boener anyway to play just in case.

I get the feeling house members dislike Boehner....secret meetings, removing tea party members from committees, acting like a rino.... well well well the tea party members stopped this vote, next election there will be more members in the house pushing out the rinos. Boehner forgets the tea party is what made him leader. The only difference in Pelosi & Boehner is the tan ... both phony.

Just ahead of a possible Hillary run for the presidency, the Clinton Library released a new load of documents from President Bill Clinton’s years in the White House. One of those documents attempts to explain Hillary´s "vast right-wing conspiracy" claim in which the Clinton administration accused Republican staffers of colluding with "extremists" on the Internet to hurt the Clintons. On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC´s Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president." That interview drew

When British photojournalist Charles Ommanney traveled through six states to photograph American gun owners, he found something he did not expect: they don´t fit the stereotypes. According to PolicyMic.com, Ommanney was sent to photograph American gun owners for the German magazine Stern. In so doing, he discovered "people who are often far from the stereotypical vision of the American ´gun-nut.´" He found a teenager named Elizabeth, who posed with a Walther handgun "in front of a floral wallpaper backdrop." He found entire families--mother, father, daughter, son--who posed with their firearms of choice. Ommanney also found one woman with a pump shotgun for home

As the nation awaits Hillary Clinton´s decision of whether or not she will run for president in 2016, a cache of 7,500 pages of newly released documents from Bill Clinton´s years in the White House show some familiar political themes. One revelation is that Bill Clinton worried that a massive new healthcare scheme would cause Americans to lose their insurance. In 1993, the President allowed his wife, first lady Hillary Clinton, to become the face of an Obamacare-like takeover of the nation´s healthcare system. The plan was sarcastically dubbed Hillarycare. But as these internal documents show, in what is now a

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK - In September 2001, as the U.S. reeled from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Vladimir Putin supported Washington´s imminent invasion of Afghanistan in ways that would have been inconceivable during the Cold War. He agreed that U.S. planes carrying humanitarian aid could fly through Russian air space. He said the U.S. military could use airbases in former Soviet republics in Central Asia. And he ordered his generals to brief their U.S. counterparts on their own ill-fated 1980s occupation of Afghanistan. During Putin´s visit to President George W. Bush´s Texas ranch two

A new photo of a mysterious flying object over Kansas has been revealed. It appears to be the same aircraft as one that was snapped soaring over Texas last month. The exact identify of the aircraft remains a mystery, but rumours abound that it could be a secret jet. ´The photo is grainy because it was taken with a hand-held maxed-out 400mm telephoto lens through a cloud layer and then it was severely cropped to bring it up even close,´ says Jeff Templin, who took the photo on 16 April. ´There is no way to know the altitude and no way to judge its

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.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
