BREAKING: Republicans Revolt, Reject Boehner’s ‘Plan B’

BREAKING: Republicans Revolt, Reject Boehner’s ‘Plan B’

By Judd Legum



House Republicans revolted this evening and rejected Speaker John Boehner’s “Plan B” which would have extended the Bush tax cuts for everyone making $1 million or less, among other provisions. According to Boehner, he canceled a scheduled vote on his plan after it became clear he could not get enough support from Republicans for it to pass. The House is now in recess until after Christmas.

1. They should reject Boehner and Cantor as well.

 

And quit the Republican Party en-masse and reform into a Tea Party that suddenly goes extinct in '14.

With that, Democrats should capture the House before the next session on the 3rd of next month.

2. Coup de Cantor

I think Cantor sabotaged Boehner. Cantor was grinning like a Cheshire Cat after the vote.
