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

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.
