Boehner and the GOP are a bunch of assholes.
 
2012-12-30 01:07:54 PM
I'm pretty sure the Senate acted last summer. Anyway isn't the House supposed to initiate legislation?

Keep doubling down, Republicans. You already lost this one.
 
2012-12-30 01:10:36 PM
The senate already passed a bill. Bohner won't put it up for a vote because he is afraid it will pass.

Yes, but the important thing to remember is that both sides equally suck but the democrats are like a billion times worse and the gop is good but both sides suck.

House won't move on the fiscal cliff until the Senate first acts on one of its bills, either by passing it in full or amending it.

Hmmm not sure if Boehner is clear on the weakness of this argument.
 
2012-12-30 01:12:30 PM
This is a lack of leadership. No one wants their name attached to painful, unpopular legislation. They'd rather let the axe drop and then be the heroes that saved their constituents from the draconian cuts which the other side is responsible for.

This is usual Dem party/ Axelrod propaganda spit out by two Obama media whores!
The Obama media have orders to protect this lobbyist crook for two more
years since Boner's leadership will depress the GOP base in 2014 !
This drunken lobbyist bagman is a dream face of the GOP .
He hates conservatives just as much as the Marxist and his media !

Of course, because it's Obama's fault for not capitulating to the GOP and all of their demands because the GOP is always right and the Democrats including Obama are always wrong.

Well, the Senate already acted. The White House can't do much more tab host negotiations and send out strongly worded letters. The ball is completely in Boener's court and he seems to be allergic to action.

Part of me wonders if this is just some stupid GOP scheme to make the Pres look like a liar during the debates when he said the major cut wouldn't happen.

/Yes I could have stopped typing after "scheme"

I'm fairly confident the President isn't going to pass a deal for the sake of passing a deal.

With that firmly in mind, I'm 99% sure we're going over the cliff and it'll be a race to see who can apply the tax cuts first.

Seriously, Republicans ... Go be jackasses somewhere else and let the grown-ups work on the budget.

You act like the entire federal government is a cancer that must be starved through budget cuts. It isn't.

Now, we could go through the bureaucracy program by program to eliminate or curtail what's no longer working, or what's no longer necessary. Such an exercise would, however, require rational thought and critical analysis - and I can see why your party doesn't like to venture into THAT territory.

Well, Obama isn't being bi-partisan. Of course, to the Fark Independents, bi-partisan means Republicans should get their way on everything foreverandeverandeverandever.

I think thats where this will all go.

I do not foresee a deal. We will go over the cliff. Why? Because politically speaking it is a risk that will make one and break the other. It is indeed a major risk, but which ever side is seen as the victor, it will be seen as an immense win for them.

It is too early to tell who will benefit the most.

Probably to another recession. Raising taxes and cutting spending isn't a great idea right now.
 
2012-12-30 01:26:35 PM
In other news, Boehner is such a bad Speaker that after two years he still doesn't know spending bills originate in the House.

Hardly. The GOP is good at talking noise when he's not in front of them, but aside from 'you're a liar!', they've never had the balls to confront him directly.

There's been numerous times when they've had the chance, and they're not about to start now.

Kevin Smith once totally eviscerated a heckler at one of his appearances and finished it with "Don't heckle the guy with the only mic, dude."

Don't forget- even though the Republicans lost badly in the last election, they really won. And they've been willing to compromise with Barry all along on this fiscal cliff thing. All he has to do is give them exactly what they want. Also, he should deliver a public apology for being so uppity.

Well I am surprised someone hasn't claimed that this is proof Obama is a Manchurian candidate out to destroy America and help build a New World Order.
 
2012-12-30 01:28:46 PM
The GOP said they'd rather watch America burn to the ground than let Obama have a second term.

I guess since they couldn't stop Obama's second term, they figure they might as well do some arson.

Sit back and look at the whole situation. It is difficult for one to remove their bias when discussing current political events. Be that as it may, try your very best to see what I am about to say with an absolute open mind.

This is a movement that everyone wants. Deep down inside the left wants this to point and say that the GOP are destroying this country because they wont compromise and the GOP is the one who brought this to this point. Deep down inside the right wants this to point to Obama and say that he is not a good leader and that he was the one who brought this to this point.

Thats what this is all about. This is about politics. Its not about a fiscal decision; its a play that both sides are taking to beat the shiat out of the other side. No one seriously wants any sort of deal. Not one at all. They want us to go over this cliff.

I'm actually with you on this one. Remember the bailout and how tense it all was up until the last moment? What did we get? A bag of shiat on fire.

Let it crumble. Break the whole farking thing and start over from scratch. What they're doing now will only prolong the inevitable.

Right Obama wants us to go over that's why he made that deal of no tax rise over $400k and cuts to entitlements because he refuses to compromise.

Serious this is not a "both sides are bad" the GOP in the house refuse to have ANY tax increase. How is that willing to compromise?

I'm not sure that your taxes argument makes a lot of sense. Bush cut taxes dramatically and our economy went into the toilet. Spending cuts might be a problem, but they can fix it by the end of January. It isn't like in one day we go from a slight recovery to absolute meltdown overnight.
 
2012-12-30 01:38:58 PM
In the end, the Republicans did not want to raise taxes. Obama did. The American people voted for higher taxes on November 6th by re-electing Obama and they will feel the consequences of it. I wouldn't compromise to Obama either, ever. If taxes do rise for everyone on January 1st, the Republicans will ask Obama to restore the Bush tax cuts when the debt ceiling is raised.

I wished we convert to a parliamentary system like most countries are. If that were to happen, Boehner would be PM.
