Boehner Exclusive: Raising
Tax Rates 'Unacceptable' but
Will Put New Revenue on Table

ABC News, by John Parkinson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/9/2012 7:25:25 AM

Raising tax rates is "unacceptable" to House Speaker John Boehner as he prepares to open negotiations on the looming "fiscal cliff" with the president and congressional Democrats, he told "World News" anchor Diane Sawyer today in an exclusive interview. "Raising tax rates is unacceptable," Boehner, R-Ohio, said in his first broadcast interview since the election Tuesday. "Frankly, it couldn't even pass the House. I'm not sure it could pass the Senate." That stance could set up a real showdown with the White House given that the president has said he would veto any deal that does not

New revenue is already on the table and is being served, idiot. Look at the provisions of Obamacare.

Boehner, you ignorant twit:

It's VERY simple

You create, pass, and send to the Senate a budget that cuts all useless alphabet agencies, has NO funding to implement Obambi-care, then sit back and say 'take it or leave it'.

When the MSM starts screaming, calmly explain that revenue bills start in the House, and that your bill is on the table, end of discussion.

Yes, the MSM will scream and stamp their feet, and proclaim you 'obstructionist' but they already do that, don't they ?

If Boehner is unwilling to lead, find someone who will.

Energy, Education, HUD, TSA AND they want to raise taxes while ONLY cutting defense, they just vote PRESENT and let them have their way.

Since federal tax revenue as % of GDP is only 16% versus 19% long term average since WWII, something probable should be done. First priority is to get spending down substantially from 25%. Then, some revenue increases might be in order.

Salt, I read elsewhere tax revenues are down as a percent of GDP due to a: the economic weakness, and b: the temporary social security withholding reductions. The fiscal cliff that's coming up should restore what you're looking for.

There will be more spending and more debt.
The reason debt retards the economy is because the middle class understands the math and they know that the only way to pay off the debt is to tax the middle. The rich have professionals that protect them from the taxes. And even if we took all the money from the rich we couldn't even begin to pay off the debt. So the middle knows that more debt eventually means increased taxes for them so they do the wise thing. They cut back on their own spending in preparation for the increased taxes. And that cut back slows the economy.

For example: Because Obama got re-elected I know that there will be more spending and higher taxes for me. I know that Boehner will not stop the tax hikes because he always surrenders and he has just said "New Revenue" which is code speak for "I surrender". So I have cancelled my plans to buy a new car and will continue driving the 217k mile car I currently own. I have just thrown all the car brochures in the trash. How many other car sales have just been cancelled due to the results of this election?

I work in automotive supply. The reduced cars sales will probably mean I will be unemployed in about two years. My younger co-workers have begun plans to leave the country. They are not recent immigrants but rather the descendants of great great grandfathers who came here a long time ago. BTW, the recent immigrant co workers have already left and gone back home where they now find a higher standard of living.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin made a surprise appearance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” Wednesday night where she joined host Jimmy Fallon in a skit mocking President Barack Obama’s weakness. In the skit, Fallon played Russian President Vladimir Putin in a phone conversation with Palin. “You shoot bear? I prefer hand to hand combat,” Fallon says, playing Putin. “Well, you see, that’s why everyone says you’re such a strong leader,” Palin replies. “Well, I come from strong jeans,” Fallon’s Putin retorts. “President Obama — he come from mom jeans.” Both Palin and the faux Putin then erupt in laughter.

MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin has formally divorced his wife, Lyudmila, after more than 30 years of marriage, a Kremlin spokesman said on Wednesday, following a surprise breakup announcement last year. “The divorce has taken place,” Dmitry Peskov said, without giving any further details. Putin and his wife announced that their marriage was over last June in a live broadcast on Russian state television, confirming longstanding speculation that they had separated. The Kremlin made clear at the time that their breakup had yet to be formalized. The ex-KGB spy, 61, keeps his personal life private and little is known about

Big donors, leaders of political parties and candidates with access to wealthy supporters will be the biggest beneficiaries of the Supreme Court decision issued on Wednesday, a ruling that could fundamentally reshape the political terrain in the 2014 elections and beyond. Election experts predicted a surge of new money into congressional campaigns and political parties, expanding the world of high-dollar fund-raising now dominated by “super PACs” and big-spending political nonprofit groups. The decision effectively eradicates a major campaign finance restriction brought about in the aftermath of the Watergate scandal, the cap on the total amount any one person can give

It was officially billed as a speech to promote raising the minimum wage, but President Obama´s trip to the University of Michigan Wednesday had all the hallmarks of a campaign pitch - one that the nation will likely hear several more times as the midterm elections approach. There was a laundry list of achievements (economic recovery, ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, signing 7.1 million people up for health care), a recitation of the rest of the Democratic agenda (paycheck fairness, expanding college affordability) and a nod to the local restaurant (Zingerman´s Deli, an Ann Arbor institution) where the

The show’s Twitter account made the announcement Wednesday afternoon, saying the former Alaska governor will be stopping by the show to “do something fun” with host Jimmy Fallon.(Tweet) The scheduled guests for Wednesday night’s show are Denis Leary, Cat Deeley along with musical guest Nickel Creek.

CNN has taken a lot of heat–and rightly so!–for its obsessive reporting on missing flight MH370, which has often come at the detriment of more pressing or substantive stories. But no less ridiculous is Fox News’ #Benghazi fixation, which was in full fever Wednesday morning as the network devoted three hours and thirty-eight minutes of continual coverage of a Benghazi congressional hearing. Benghazi has long been Fox’s fallback, less a news story than a sort of epistemological wound that can never close simply because conservatives refuse to accept conclusions about the events of September 11, 2012 that don’t conform to

CNBC contributor Rick Santelli ranted against the media’s tendency to accept certain things as settled fact. According to Santelli, the media, “whether press, TV or whatever it is,” aren’t focusing enough on presenting hard data. “I don’t care how many people visit a website. I want to know how many people, you know, have lost, how many people have gained, the intersection, how many people have paid, you know, kind of an analytical, quantitative approach.” [See video below.] Santelli argued that this was due to the media accepting data from third party sources as settled science. “Seven million, it’s settled.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
