Tax fight sends GOP into chaos
Washington Post, by Karen Tumulty

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/21/2012 10:30:58 PM

The main thing that has held Republicans together philosophically is the belief in holding down taxes. Not one of them in Congress has voted for a significant increase in more than two decades. Now that very issue is tearing the GOP apart and making it an all-but-ungovernable majority for Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) to lead in the House. Disarray is a word much overused in politics. But it barely begins to describe the current state of chaos and incoherence as Republicans come to terms with electoral defeat and try to regroup against a year-end deadline to avert

Not to be catty, but the Democrats have always made clear their desire is to raise taxes. They´ve got their way and taxes are going up. Whose taxes will they not raise? Which of President Obama´s tax credits or holidays will they allow to expire? If taxes increase by 452 billion in 2013, what will they cut so that cuts are 3 to 1 more than tax increases?

THE PEOPLE elected tax-avoiding Republicans to the house to do what they are doing now. THE PEOPLE have spoken with their vote, and decided they want a divided governence in Congress. THE PEOPLE want the House to be in Republican control and to fight against 0bama. 0bama WON the Presidency, but THE PEOPLE want a check/balance on his imperial/dictatorial/executive order presidency.

"...making it an all-but-ungovernable majority for Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) to lead in the House."

That´s exactly right, and it´s why we need a new Speaker in January. Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) comes to mind. I´d like to see a tough conservative Republican House really get under Obama´s skin, and Paul Ryan is just the man to lead that noble and long-overdue effort.

I think we´ve lost the war. Why did we need to die on the hill of no new taxes for millionaires? Come on! The GOP could have sent it to Reid and Obama and let them figure out how to say that everyone has to pay more. Now the GOP is branded forever as the protector of millionaires. Call me a RINO but politics is ugly and rarely pure. There is no conservative Messiah, there is no Santa Claus and Paul Ryan supported Plan B.

Chaos? Danger and opportunity - which is more dangerous:

- the current status quo and everything in our culture that supports it and ignores reason.

or

- the opportunity to blaze a renewed path (and until recently the path the U.S. was originally conceived and founded on) to demand our rights as creations of God to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

There is no middle ground - our souls require liberty or we die. In this life due to slavery, in the next due to cowardice. Liberty or death - everything else is PC sound bites.

I have to respond to #7: The answer to the question as to "why we have to die on the hill for no new taxes to millionaires?" First because it is right and moral.

Chaos! The Republicans in disarray! Obama can now blame the Republicans for the fiscal cliff!

I think what one doesn´t understand is that as Rush states the low information voter has no clue about the fiscal cliff, no clue about taxes and no clue about how the economy works. They are too busy watching The X factor, and TMZ to realize what is at stake. So the grown ups in the room have to make the decisions for the children who don´t know any better. In the end when they grow up and understand what has happened..they will thank us. (I hope!)

Plan B was never going to be up for a vote in the repulsive Reid-led Senate, so passing it would have been a futile exercise in addition to the pubs tacitly admitting that tax increases for a segment of our society actually would be a good thing. We would have been haunted with this forever to no real avail. Zippy will now proceed to Plan F which is what he wanted all along. Elections including a population of morons have consequences.

Plan B would have never been put to vote in Reid´s Senate but that is the point! It would have been Reid´s/Obama´s problem, their mess to clean up. Now, it is still the House´s. It´s getting ridiculous. If anyone was going to raise taxes on everyone, it should be Obama and the Democrats, not the GOP by default.

And #7, to add to #9´s excellent point, the conversation should not have been about raising taxes at all, it should have been about meaningful cuts in spending! Boehner was getting outmaneuvered at every turn. Obama´s promises of spending cuts later reminded me of Wimpy of Popeye fame: "I would gladly pay you next Tuesday for a hamburger today", only of course, Tuesday would never come.

#14, to your Popeye/Wimpy comparison, I´d add this: Obama´s reaction to Boehner´s plan B was that plan B meant the Republicans had conceded that taxes must go up, but they needed to be raised on a larger segment of the population. That reminded me of the old joke where a guy asks a girl if she´d "do it" with him for a million dollars, and upon getting a "yes" answer, he asks if she´d do it for $10, to which she replies huffily: "No, what kind of a girl do you think I am?"... to which he replies "We´ve already established that, now we´re just haggling over price"

The republicans are open about their disagreements while all the dems are being told to keep their mouths shut for Obama´s sake.Don´t think there isn´t dissension among the dems but none dare challenge King Barky.

There´s 2 lawmaking branches of government and all the country´s problems are being dropped in one person´s lap for a grand solution.Neither Reid or Obama have stuck their necks out because they´re political cowards.Boehners trying things and still gets the rotten tomatoes.

They´re trying to set republican up as the gang who can´t shoot straight so they´ll lose in 2014.I haven´t seen a viable option for Boehner to do instead of what he´s doing.He could have passed the million dollar offer with dem support and now all of a sudden they´re the protectors of millionaires.

Obama´s winning the battle right now but he´ll lose the war when there´s a massive job exodus from blue states thanks to obamacare.Texas is a job magnet because people think it´s the safest state to do business in right now.

The SC ruling on Obamacare was atrocious but it threw a wrench in Obama´s plan to get all states to roll over.They´re not prepared to set up federal exchanges in 35 or so states.

In your dreams #12 - even if Plan B had passed the House, Reid and BO would have just crossed their arms and said, "no." Then the Republicans would have been excoriated by the press for not solving the fiscal cliff.

The House has passed several bills addressing the fiscal cliff this year, and they´ve died in Reid´s Senate. Plan B would have been no different. Anyone who thinks otherwise is naive.

Before the Obama administration gave an inaccurate narrative on national television that the Benghazi attacks grew from an anti-American protest, the CIA’s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no such demonstration occurred, documents and interviews with current and former intelligence officials show. The attack was “not an escalation of protests,” the station chief wrote to then-Deputy CIA Director Michael J. Morell in an email dated Sept. 15, 2012 — a full day before the White House sent Susan E. Rice to several Sunday talk shows to disseminate talking points claiming that the Benghazi attack began

PARIS — Steeped in conservative rage and tasting of grass roots, a political backlash has traditional politicians and the news media asking the once-unthinkable: Is le tea party brewing in France? If it were, it would be populated by the likes of Catherine Mas-Mezeran, a Parisian mother of three who wrinkles her nose at the mention of President François Hollande.

A flood of corruption scandals involving state and local Democratic Party lawmakers is threatening to muddy the party’s image as it enters what was already a tough election cycle. In a week Democrats won’t soon forget, the Democrat-dominated California Senate took the unprecedented step Friday of voting 28-1 to suspend with pay three state senators in their own party accused or convicted of criminal conduct. State Sen. Leland Yee was arrested Wednesday on federal gun trafficking and corruption charges. Sen. Ron Calderon pleaded not guilty Feb. 24 to charges of influence-peddling, and Sen.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans, according to a poll conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The long conflicts, which have required many troops to deploy multiple times and operate under an almost constant threat of attack, have exacted a far more widespread emotional toll than previously recognized by most government studies and independent assessments:

Military officials said they are investigating the conduct of a U.S. Marine who was on assignment for President Obama’s trip to the Netherlands last week, after witnesses said he was talking in detail about his job and passing around his government security badge during a night of drinking at a bar. The Marine, Korey Nathan Pritchett, was first identified by a Dutch newspaper based on witness accounts and smartphone photos taken during the partying, which happened two nights before Obama arrived at The Hague for a nuclear security summit.

TBILISI, Georgia Halfway through an otherwise coherent conversation with a Georgian lawyer here — the topics included judges, the court system, the police — I was startled by a comment he made about his country’s former government, led by then-president Mikheil Saakashvili. “They were LGBT,” he said, conspiratorially. What did that mean, I asked, surprised. Were they for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights? For gay marriage? Were they actually gay? He couldn’t really define it, though the conversation meandered in that direction for a few more minutes, also touching on the subject of the former president’s alleged marital infidelity,

Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi just might be a racist monster who wants to murder live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Why would I say such an outrageous thing? Because Pelosi has accepted an award named for Margaret Sanger. And Margaret Sanger was definitely a racist monster who advocated murdering live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Quote: The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. That’s advocating child murder. It’s not racist, but we’re not done. Sanger considered racial minorities to be “human weeds.” In context,

Barring a miraculous upsurge in President Obama’s dismal 41% approval rating, Hillary Clinton’s run for president in 2016 will be a steep uphill climb. Clinton will need to walk a political tight rope, distancing herself from Obama without coming across as a disloyal member of the president’s political coterie. "Secretary Clinton is distancing herself a bit on foreign policy matters from the administration recently," said John Hudak, a Brookings Institution fellow and expert on presidential campaigns. "This is a pretty standard practice for anyone looking to succeed the sitting president, even within the same party." Nevertheless, Hillary enjoys the fruits

A federal appeals court Thursday handed women in Texas a big win by upholding health and safety regulations that had been challenged by Planned Parenthood. Last year Texas passed a law that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital no more than 30 miles from where the abortion is provided. The appeals court quoted a board-certified Ob/Gyn who explained that requiring admitting and staff privileges “provides a more thorough evaluation mechanism of physician competency” and “acknowledges and enables the importance of continuity of care.” The appeals court explained that the “specter of Dr. Kermit Gosnell” informed the

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?
