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.

AP President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview.

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That would involve Britain and other nations increasing spending ten-fold on wind farms and other green

In late March, the Chicago Board of Education announced an ambitious plan to implement its “turnaround” model for three low-performing elementary schools in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods. The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools, according to an email from the Chicago Teachers Union obtained by The Daily Caller. Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
