United Press International, by Staff

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/21/2012 9:25:35 AM

WASHINGTON- U.S. President Barack Obama is set on finding a "fiscal cliff" deal that will pass Congress, the White House said after Speaker John Boehner´s "Plan B" failed. "The president will work with Congress to get this done and we are hopeful that we will be able to find a bipartisan solution quickly that protects the middle class and our economy," spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement after House Republican leaders abruptly canceled a vote on Boehner´s fallback bill Thursday night after failing in an emergency meeting to rally enough votes for passage. Conservatives refused to support

This is BS. Obama has been disengaged from the process since the election.Maybe the natives in his own party are getting restless.Like everything else,Obama hasn´t shown one ounce of leadership on this.At least Boehner tried something.

Of course he is.


That said, I love how our conservative purists think it´s a good idea to let all the rates rise and then we can blame the President.

While they are all millionaires we are going to be left with barely enough money to et by. Somehow to the purists, this is a good thing????????

Talk about out of touch.

Can someone explain what Obama is trying to achieve with his fiscal cliff maddness? His socialist policies have been confirmed by his reelection, so he does not have to destroy GOP. He is not even bothered by the GOP, since Obama uses executive orders, cares less about budgets and ignores all GOP demands for data and testimony. Obama´s deceptions/failures on Benghazi, F & F, al--Qaeda, GM, green waste and so much more are so obvious yet he goes unchallenged. The majority of citizens and almost all media do not seem to care how inept he is, how much he spends or how much wealth and income they have lost since 1/09. Even his revenge on the rich taxes contribute little to reducing the deficit. So will someone explain why Obama is putting the country through this macabre dance?

This isn´t even a bad farce anymore. No matter what passes the debt ceiling will be raised 2.5 trillion. We´ll receive another downgrade which doesn´t matter that much with crazy Ben keeping interest rates at zero. Free money everyone. Inflation? What´s that? Then healthcare will force us over the cliff.

No one will get serious until we have a complete fiscal and monetary meltdown.

WASHINGTON — President Obama this week will seek to force American businesses to pay more overtime to millions of workers, the latest move by his administration to confront corporations that have had soaring profits even as wages have stagnated. On Thursday, the president will direct the Labor Department to revamp its regulations to require overtime pay for several million additional fast-food managers, loan officers, computer technicians and others whom many businesses currently classify as “executive or professional” employees to avoid paying them overtime, according to White House officials briefed on the announcement.

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

Federal jury convicts former Arkansas treasurer

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- A jury convicted former Arkansas Treasurer Martha Shoffner of federal bribery and extortion charges Tuesday, saying her acceptance of $36,000 from a bond trader who did business with the state was a felony rather than just a lapse in ethical judgment. Shoffner wept quietly at the defense table before the jurors, who deliberated for about three hours, returned to the courtroom. But the former Democratic official regained her composure and showed no reaction as U.S. District Judge J. Leon Holmes read the 14 consecutive guilty verdicts. Holmes still must rule on a motion to acquit that was

A federal court has dismissed a civil rights lawsuit filed by The Rutherford Institute on behalf of a decorated Marine veteran from Virginia. U.S District Judge Henry Hudson called Brandon Raub’s assertion that police, the FBI and the Secret Service were involved in suppressing his dissident speech “far-fetched.” In August, 2012 uniformed county police officers showed up at Brandon Raub’s front door. They introduced Raub to several unidentified agents of the Secret Service and FBI who spoke with him concerning his anti-government Facebook posts. A few minutes later, according to the August, 2013 complaint, one of the federal agents telephoned

Progress Texas, a liberal group in Texas that supports Democratic candidates, released what appears to be a standard attack ad against Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott--with one major exception. Abbott is portrayed in the ad standing up holding a piggy bank. Normally, this wouldn´t be a big deal and hardly would merit an article, but Abbott was paralyzed from the waist down in 1984 and uses a wheelchair. He can´t stand up. This is just another odd example of how liberal Texas groups are uncomfortable with Greg Abbott´s disability. There really isn´t any explaining this away, other than it´s truly

A prominent Democrat who illegally funneled $660,000 into the mayoral campaign of Vincent Gray in 2010 also contributed to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, according to the Washington Times. All three networks on Monday night and Tuesday morning ignored the story. Prosecutors claimed that Mayor Gray had knowledge of the illegal "shadow" campaign run by Jeffrey Thompson. Times writer Dave Boyer explained the connection to other high-profile Democrats: "Despite Hillary Rodham Clinton’s promise that she had scrubbed illegal cash contributions from her 2008 presidential campaign, prosecutors revealed Monday that the mastermind of Mayor Vincent C.

It’s rare in politics that anything other than a presidential contest is viewed as a “must win” — but the special election in Florida’s 13th District falls into that category for Democrats. A loss in the competitive March 11 contest would almost certainly be regarded by dispassionate observers as a sign that President Barack Obama could constitute an albatross around the neck of his party’s nominees in November. And that could make it more difficult for Democratic candidates, campaign committees and interest groups to raise money and energize the grass roots. Fundamentally, the district, left vacant by the death of

New York — US President Barack Obama Tuesday launched a New York shopping spree -- to treat his wife and daughters -- and to praise top clothing retailor Gap Inc. for raising its minimum wage. Obama halted his motorcade at the store at East 42nd and Third Avenue as he hit the Big Apple on a fundraising swing. The president selected sweaters for his daughters Malia and Sasha and a blue workout jacket for his wife Michelle, before delivering a glowing assessment of Gap bosses, who recently decided to hike the store´s minimum wage to $10 dollars.

NEW YORK — Melding 2014 needs with 2016 hopes, President Barack Obama is teaming up with an ally and fundraiser of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to help the Democratic Party erase a worrisome debt. Obama was in New York Tuesday to raise money for the Democratic National Committee at a high-dollar fundraiser at the home of Alan Patricof, the founder of a New York venture capital fund. Patricof is a longtime Clinton friend and financial bundler for her Senate and presidential campaigns, and the event aligns the Obama and Clinton orbits as the former first lady considers

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know
