Club For Growth Urges ‘No’ Vote On Boehner’s ‘Plan B’

Source: TPM



IGOR BOBIC 1:25 PM EST, WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 19, 2012

The conservative avocacy group Club For Growth urged lawmakers to vote "no" on House Speaker John Boehner's "Plan B" to avert the so-called fiscal cliff on Wednesday, noting it would be scoring the vote on the bill.

"On the substance, this bill is anti-growth," a statement reads on the group's website. "It increases tax rates for those making over $1 million while also raising taxes on capital gains and dividends. We don't buy into the Washington-speak, suggesting that these are actually tax cuts."

1. I have an idea...

4. He pretty much did

He made it clear this morning that there is no way he is signing that piece of crap.

Unfortunately, Boehner scored a bit of a tactical victory by proposing it, because now he can say that they tried to cut taxes for everyone under $1 million and the president vetoed it. Now it is harder for the president to argue that he tried his best to get a tax cut for the middle class, because most people don't understand how much less revenue Plan B would bring in, and they don't see amounts below $1 million as so obscenely rich to be outraged about them getting a tax cut. Most people probably don't understand also how big of a tax cut millionaires would get under plan b.

3. "Club for Growth"

Another moronic name. Why not "Club for Bleeding the Middle Class of their Wealth"?
