White House: Boehner’s
‘Plan B’ no good

Washington Post, by Rachel Weiner

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/18/2012 11:43:46 AM

The White House has come out against the ‘Plan B‘ proposed by House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), which would raise taxes on income over $1 million a year. The president “is not willing to accept a deal that doesn’t ask enough of the very wealthiest in taxes and instead shifts the burden to the middle class and seniors,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement. ”The Speaker’s ‘Plan B’ approach doesn’t meet this test because it can’t pass the Senate and therefore will not protect middle class families, and does little to address

No surprise. Just pass it anyway, and go home. Let the Dems own the "cliff" they created.

Boehner has made two good faith offers. Obama is proposing to go over the cliff instead. Let him! Obama will get 4.5 trillion in new tax revenue over 10 years and cut spending by 1 trillion. But 90% of the tax revenue will come from the non-rich. With 452 billion in new revenue in 2013, he won´t need an increased credit limit. Lets see him propose a new green energy program with money he took from the middle class in new taxes. Or suggest a new carbon tax.

Shifts the burden of what, Carney? The burden of more and more spending?

Note to Boehner: Quit groveling, quit digging, quit sobbing and quit. This should prove that they don´t want tax hikes only for the ´´wealthy´´, they only want control of the debt ceiling and endless spending, you twit.

When Bill Clinton began his first term, he talked bouta ´millionaire´s tax.´ But when his proposal hit congress, it increased income tax rates on those earning 250,000 dollars. And when Al Gore appeared on one of those sunday news shows and was asked about that, he said, well, in four years, such a person will earn a million dollars.´

President Zero, throughout the campaign, talked about millionaires and billionaires.
I dont remember him talking about 250,000 aires. (although I tend not to pay attention to him)
By rejecting plan B, President Zero is expanding the war on ´the rich´ which is classic class warfare. A married couple working in california, or New York, will earn 250,000 dollars, and they are not rich.

Commenter 2, Oh-Heck, is correct. Unless all citizens who receive an income pay federal income taxes, they will never understand how Obama is wasting huge sums of THEIR income. Windmills. Obamaphones, ObamaCare, Obama contraceptives and Obama vacations are NOT paid for by "the rich" but by the entire citizenry. And how Obama loves tax cheats and avoiders like Kerry, Geitner, Daschle, Warren Buffett, et al.

Boehner and his House Repubs have to call it a year and go home. You´ll be blamed no matter what you do, so at least enjoy your families.

Isn´t this about what Pelosi proposed?

So, Obama, just like previous "negotiations" decides compromise isn´t something he does, and pushes for 110% of what he wants.

Remember, he decided to move the goal posts on the last negotiation by asking for even more at the last-minute.

Pass your proposal, and let the Senate Democrats squabble with the WH.

"The Speaker’s ‘Plan B’ approach doesn’t meet this test because it can’t pass the Senate and therefore will not protect middle class families"

Obviously a product of our public school system.

IS Carney telling us that if something cannot pass in the Senate it cannot help the middle class? Does passage in the Senate determine if the middle class is helped? Obamacare passed in the Senate, does that make it a middle class protection? If the Senate passed a 100% tax on incomes from 55,000 to 200,000 would that be protecting the middle class? After all the criteria used to determine if the middle class is protected is whether it can pass in the senate, right.

Idiot.

Well, then that´s that! Nothing goodf can come from any Republican and nothing from the idiot stock at the White House is even barely passable by Reid´s Senate. The Senate is remaining totally brain dead in all this, playing the infamous "Present" role. The nation flounders on the brink of viable extinction, the people are buying up guns like they were the last Twinkies and we can now celebrate the results of the last election. This is worse than anything I have ever dreamed could happen to my country.

No matter what bad thing happens -- and bad things will happen -- the Republicans are going to get blamed. Period.

The Demon-RATS will blame the Republicans, with the full support and free constant verification by the MSM.

We can´t win. Just go home and let the Demon-RATS pass anything they want. We will still get blamed, but at least the Republicans can have a nice Christmas dinner with their families.

Any country stupid enough to re-elect the worst president in it´s history is too stupid to survive!!!

The democrats will not accept anything, not compromise, not 100% of what they ask. They want sequestration to cut defense, and the Bush tax cuts to expire, raising rates on everyone. There isn´t nearly enough money in raising rates on the rich, they gotta tap the middle class, and the ´automatic´ tax increase across the board fits the bill perfectly. And with the willing media´s help, they can say ´Republicans forced us to raise those taxes!´
There will NOT be a ´deal´, nor anything at all done to avoid the cliff, the cliff fits the democrat agenda to a T.

Whether he intends it or not, I am not sure. But Boehner might be doing something brilliant. He´s offered to compromise. He´s offered the Pelosi plan. And the POS--I mean POTUS--has rejected it.

That makes POTUS the obstructionist, not the Republicans. That makes POTUS unwilling to meet in the middle, not the GOP. Of course, the GOP has to get that message out there and beat that drum. There, of course, is where Republicans often fail.

$250,000 is not a rich amount of money. I don´t make anything near that. And even I know it isn´t that much dough.

But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined.

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.

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'

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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. The bushy-tailed visitor

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. 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." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
