Does Everyone Want
to Go over Cliff?

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Mike Flynn

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/29/2012 7:22:50 PM

In today´s chapter of "The Fiscal Cliff," Senate Leaders Reid and McConnell are working behind the scenes to craft a deal to meet Monday´s midnight deadline. Yesterday, President Obama met with congressional leaders, for the first time in six weeks, and urged the Senate to reach a deal over the weekend. If they failed to reach a deal, Obama warned, he would press them to put his original proposal before the Congress for an up or down vote. Obama´s original offer called for around $1.6 Trillion in new taxes, directed most of the new revenue to new spending

We are in a catch-22. The only way to get out of a big tax increase is to have a big tax increase and the only way to get spending cuts is to not pass spending cuts. I say the Republicans do like the Democrats did in Wisconsin and leave town and not vote on anything.

The photo from he article shows an exasperated Boehner trying to make a point and Barry doing
his " I won, shut up " dismissive hand gesture.
Barry is demanding and up or down vote on his original proposal.
Republicans should call his bluff.
But, they should use The Coulter Option and vote present which makes Obama
and the Democrats own the entire mess.
Voting No will only help the media and the Democrats place blame on the Republicans.

If the only way to force spending cuts is to go over the cliff, I am in favor. We need to reduce federal government spending by a huge amount to get it below 20% of GDP.

To do that, we need to have genuine cuts in federal expenditure amounting to about 15% of current expenditure, or genuine cuts of $480 billion in the annual budget.

Right now, the cliff - as painful and unfair that it is - seems the "least bad" option. Damn the torpedoes; damn the press. The straight extension is already on Reid´s desk. Any new strings will benefit the Dems politically at the expense of the country and our children´s future. It´s time for some backbone. It´s time to call.

It´s strange how many people actually believe our elected give a scatological sample what happens. The goof-offs in Washington still get their pay, their benefits, their medical care. their cars, their royal treatment, their retirement. What is it to them if the people suffer at all? Nothing. It´s all a bunch of high rollers acting like they actually care. They lost caring many, many years ago!

The Republican House passd an extension of the Bush tax cuts and sent it to the Senate. Reid wouldn´t even call it for a vote. So, even if a Democrat introduces the Obama plan in the House, why in the world would Boehner not kill it? And why in the world is he not telling Obama that his plan would be DOA in the House and to shove it you know where?

This is what all Republicans should be saying, "the President and the Senate Democrats aren´t serious about reducing the deficit, or balancing the budget since they´re proposing to increase spending more than the tax increases on the rich".

"Really, more spending than we have now which is costing Americans over one trillion dollars each of the last 4 years".

"Makes President Bush´s $450 billion deficit look thrifty now doesn´t it"?

Reid won´t bring the GOP bill to the floor but remember Obe´s plan did go to the floor of both houses and received 0 votes.
So the entire story is the dems are afraid to allow any vote at all.

A bipartisan bill passed Congress and was signed by President Obama. Why did they create the cliff except for the thrill of jumping off? Raise taxes on everyone. Take back all of Obama´s silly redistribution schemes. Force puny cuts of 100 billion a year. Don´t authorize an increase on the debt limit so he is forced to reduce spending to match the new revenue.

Vote present, abstain, let them have it. Our choice is homicide or suicide. This has nothing to do with fiscal matters - this is about the destruction of the Republican Party. We´ll go over this cliff, Obama will introduce legislation to restore tax cuts and be the hero to the brain dead left and our low-information voter. For the last few years, I thought my retirement might be boring. I never thought I would witness the demise of freedom in such a short time.

Obama loves the perception that his tax increases will immediately go into new spending,because that´s what his base voted for.What his vampire base doesn´t realize is Obama´s big donors are firt in line for new spending and thhere might be a few crumbs left for them.

I didn´t know it until a couple weeks ago,that part of the stimulus was beefing up earned income checks.,like a free $4000 wasn´t enough. This is the kind of thing this creep did to buy voter enthusiasm.

Did that spending do the economy any good?Of course not because the majority of it went to big retail which doesn´t pay their employees much because the margins are slim.A lot of it went south of the border via the drug trade.

The money also went to keep government workers on the job at the state level.Never mind that it´s Obama´s policies that are causing state deficits because of the lack of hiring in the private sector.

Obama,ironically creates messes that empower him to increase spending.

The best thing is to go over the cliff and stay there. This country is in serious jeopardy as the number of those not paying any Federal income tax at all approaches 50%, while we are building a permanent unemployed class with benefits seemingly that are approaching infinity and disability claims are the new, early, early retirement plans.

I really do not want to pay more taxes but I prefer a system that more evenly takes from all of us rather than makes of us a nation of envy rather than aspiration.

While the political rherotic soars nobody seems to notice that fiscal year 2013, which started October 1, 2013 the borrowing makes the excesses of the past few years seem paltry.

For the first time the Social Security system has paid out more than it took in by $47B, putting it in the red. This only happened because Social Security revenues was foolishly cut by more than 20% for the past few years.

The Democrat strategy is to build a permanent voting class that pays absoulutely no taxes whatsoever but can be counted on to reliability vote for greater and greater taxes for those who have to support them. The Republicans, seemingly the inept, stupid party keep falling victim to this strategy.

So one more chance, let the sequestration on cuts go into effect, let the tax rates go up, stop permanent unemployment compensation, restore Social Security revenue and cut more spending or we won´t have to worry about falling off the clift, we will drop of Mt. Everest.

AUSTIN, Texas — Two people were killed and nearly two dozen injured early Thursday after a car ran into a crowd of pedestrians outside the Mohawk, a South by Southwest venue in downtown Austin. According to The Austin American-Statesman, the car, which was being pursued by a DWI task force officer, ran through a barricade near the venue at 12:30 a.m. The driver reportedly struck several pedestrians before striking a scooter, killing the man and woman on board. The driver then hit a taxi, injuring two, and crashed into a parked van. Twenty-three people were hurt – five of them

BUENA VISTA, Va. — Many of the hundreds of people gathered on a recent Saturday for a free clinic are exactly the types of people Obamacare is trying to reach — generally poor in pocketbook and in health, who either lack insurance or whose bare-bones policies don’t cover vision or dental care. Despite an intensive effort by the Obama administration and heavy spending on outreach by the president’s political allies and the health care industry, the 500-plus patients at the massive traveling clinic in Buena Vista are either unaware or unswayed by the law. “Everybody here shouldn’t be here,” said

If President Obama and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel get their way, a typical U.S. Army sergeant stands to lose up to $5,000 in annual benefits, according to a leading veterans group that is mobilizing for battle over the proposed cuts to the retirement, health care and other compensation offered to those who serve. The budget restructuring outlined by Mr. Hagel last month calls for a series of politically tricky compensation reductions that risk outraging active-duty and retired service members who signed up for duty with the belief that they could rely on a rock-solid pension system to help pay for

At this point in a midterm election the smart contributor money in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere is trying to figure where to place its bets in November. Both parties are road-testing messages for the fall. That’s why tonight’s stunning special-election victory by Republicans in a Florida House district won twice by Barack Obama has national implications. Democrats are in for a “bumpy ride,” as Bette Davis would put it. Republicans shouldn’t have won tonight.

The decline in President Barack Obama´s popularity has heightened the vulnerability of his fellow Democrats in this fall´s congressional elections, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. The survey shows that just 41 percent of Americans approve of Obama´s job performance, a record low for his time in the White House. An endorsement from the sixth-year presidential incumbent would make 42 percent of Americans less likely to vote for a congressional candidate, while it would make only 22 percent more likely to support a candidate.

President Obama has cast himself as the leader of a global coalition opposed to Russian aggression in Ukraine, but it’s not clear exactly where he is leading it. Analysts say key allies in Europe remain reluctant to take tough action against Moscow, recognizing the economic and energy leverage Russia wields over them. Although Mr. Obama undoubtedly has succeeded in rallying countries, including China, to condemn Russian action, it remains to be seen whether they will offer anything other than words and, in turn, whether such a U.S.-led coalition will produce tangible results.

In the next few days, the Senate will begin debate on the reauthorization of a child-care development block-grant program — a small, relatively noncontroversial program that is likely to pass. In this case, it’s not the “what” of the effort that’s most important but the “how.” The debate is expected to take a different course, with both sides getting equal time to make arguments and offer amendments — a practice that has pretty much all but disappeared in the increasingly partisan Senate. Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) is expected to cede control of the floor to the bill’s lead

Peter Beilenson dreamed of bright, affordable health-care centers in working-class neighborhoods, staffed with doctors paid a flat salary — rather than per patient — and lifestyle coaches encouraging healthier living. Tiny waiting rooms would reinforce the message that all patients would be seen quickly. A human would always answer the phone. Specialists could immediately be consulted by videoconference. And there would be free yoga. Such common-sense approaches, Beilenson believes, will eventually drive down health-care costs. Buried in President Obama’s newly enacted Affordable Care Act, he found a way to test that theory. But because of hard-to-resolve problems with Maryland’s new

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep.
