"I've made it clear to the president, and I think I laid out yesterday - raising taxes on small business people is the wrong prescription, based on where the economy is," Boehner said Thursday.

I would love to see a quote where Obama said "raising taxes on small business people is the RIGHT prescription, based on where the economy is".

or anywhere where any democrats suggested we should raise taxes on "small business people".

Don't forget, they consider Donald Trump a "small business" person.

This is an example of how we lost the debt ceiling debate. The Democrats should have united under the same message:
1). Boehner would classify Donald Trump as a small business.
2). Boehner thinks the American people are ignorant.
3). We think you're smart enough to catch Boehner's dishonesty.
4). Under our plan, the avg. Small business owner would get x amount BACK.
5). We want to return the tax levels to the Clinton area in which Americans were more successful than previous decades.

If every Democrat ran with this script - and started an offensive line - we would have a better shot.

I've often wondered why the Democrats roll over and never call the Republicans on their dishonesty. It's like think they don't want to denigrate their opponents, and have respect for them, while the Republicans are drawing penises on their heads and mailing it to the entire state.

Of course, Boehner's dictionary's definition of "small business people" has a picture the Koch brothers beside it.

An increased tax on incomes above 250k would be a tax on small businesses. Sure, only on 3% of them, because 97% of small businesses make less than 250k, but who's counting? Details and context are liberal ploys, after all.  It's technically correct, which quite frankly is better than usual for the Party of Lies.

No.

Obama already won by dividing the country and making people hate the rich. Whats the point of making them pay more taxes? Its not enough to solve any of the countries financial problems.

Or it could be that they are just as culpable as the Republicans and they all have their fingers in the same pie? Now, I don't believe that 100%, but sometimes I'm dumbfounded why some Republicans don't get called out on their BS. Sometimes the only rational explanation is that the Dems are covering their own asses.

I don't think it's because Democrats are nice and Republicans are mean. I think it's because they're all guilty of something one way or another.

I'm not a cynic, really. ;)

House Speaker John Boehner, talking about the prospect of negotiating with President Barack Obama on a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, said in an interview Thursday that he is the "most reasonable, responsible person here in Washington"

I agree. Barack Obama is reasonable and responsible. Much more so than those cocks over in the House of Represenatives.

So, just continue to pursue a course of action that won't happen and "will it into fact" by repeating it ad nauseum?
The tax cuts weren't intended as a permanent move. The recession has extended their stay, but really, you can't keep them and reduce deficit spending. There has to be equilibrium, or at least an attempt at it.
Legislators represent the needs of real people. Let them get back to doing their job instead of some petty game of one-uppance.

Boehner actually is quite reasonable. The problem is, he has no control of the Republican's in the house and the Tea Party won't fall into line. So instead of him running the show, the tea party is running the show and he just plays damage control every time a compromise falls apart because they won't go along with him and the leadership in the House.

Home builders, realtors and others are preparing to fight a Bush administration plan that would require Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to increase financing of homes for low-income people, a home builder group said Thursday. From 2004.
