"Maybe you shouldn't have fucked with the president so much."

Read this and try not to laugh your ass off:

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday rejected a White House offer to avoid the "fiscal cliff" that would include $1.6 trillion in tax increases, $400 billion in spending cuts and a more permanent increase in the debt ceiling, Republican aides said.

Aides said the offer was made by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Rob Nabors, a top White House adviser, during their meeting with Republican leaders in the Capitol.

While the Obama administration described the offer as reducing the deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years, Republicans told The Hill its tax increases amount to $600 billion more than what the Democratic-led Senate passed earlier this year when it approved legislation that would allow tax rates on top earners to rise. “We’ve offered a balanced approach to deal with the fiscal cliff: raising revenue in a way that protects jobs while cutting spending,” said a Republican congressional aide familiar with the proposal. “But, after two weeks of discussions, the offer the White House made today is completely unbalanced and unreasonable, and amounts to little more than reiterating the president’s budget request — which failed to get a single vote in the House or Senate.”

House Democrats backed the White House for putting forward an offer based on Obama’s 2013 budget.

House Budget Committee ranking member Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), emerging from a meeting with Geithner where leaders were briefed on the offer, said it is House GOP leaders who must now put forth their plan.

“The Republicans have made some nice, positive noises but they haven't put a plan on the table,” Van Hollen added.

Republicans said the administration is demanding the $1.6 trillion in tax increases upfront, while the smaller amount of spending cuts would come later. The White House also wants $50 billion in new stimulus spending, according to published reports, and to make permanent a change in the way the debt ceiling is raised so that Congress can only block it with a two-thirds majority.

“This offer represents a complete break from reality,” the Republican aide said.


Au contraire, mon frère, that is precisely the "reality" that the Republicans are facing. The administration is threatening to weaken their ability to obstruct in the Senate or to blow up the economy by holding the debt ceiling hostage, while also demanding their tax hikes on the rich and refusing to offer anything remotely satisfactory (from the Republicans' point of view) in spending cuts.

Give the president what he wants or over the cliff we go. And the GOP gets the blame no matter what happens. Maybe you shouldn't have fucked with the president so much.

what the White House presented to the House CONS was a "suck on this" package.

LOVE IT!!!

THIS is how the republi-CONS should be treated - just on general principles, but PARTICULARLY in the aftermath of their LOSS in the 2012 election. Let's all remember - they LOST. And they should be reminded of that at EVERY possible opportunity. INCLUDING THEIR LOSSES IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Some mandate! They freakin' LOST seats.

I'm with you! I think we need to seriously look at further cuts in the Military budget as well. We need to scrutinize every government contract and rein this stuff in until we make a serious dent in this deficit. And start the ball rolling with increasing the taxes on the wealthy. This shit has got to come from somewhere if we are seriously going to fix it.

82. Not gonna be easy what with all the gerrymandering. I live in PA and despite being a blue state

we're got a shitload of Teapers in charge. My rep, Joe Pitts, is the prototypical mean old white RWer. He lost in two of the three counties in his district, but the most rural county took him over the top.

One of my senators is Pat Toomey, another blatant shill for the 1% with 4 more years left in his term, and the other is a moderate Dem.

There have been a lot of good candidates for the "gerrymander of the decade" award this cycle. North Carolina, Illinois and Texas have all dreamed up district lines that have gone well beyond what many pundits believed could be pulled off in those states. Honorable mentions go to Massachusetts and Maryland, whose districts combine to allow for the election of one Republican out of 17 districts.

But the legislators in all those states were making heavily Democratic/Republican delegations in states that were likewise heavily Democratic/Republican. That isn’t a tremendous job.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2011/12/14/in_pennsylvania_the_gerrymander_of_the_decade_112404.html

88. No undoing the gerrymandering until 2020. To undo it in 2014 takes turnout.

The same work to get the turnout in 2012 will be required on the ground all of the months until November 2014. Giving up only guarantees another Tea Party victory as in 2010. Only turnout overcomes big money.

Nothing is hopeless with sufficient turnout. And it has to be stressed that it's the agenda, not the charisma of politicans that we must be vote for, unless we think that we live in American Idol land. Which we don't.

We must prepare for 2020 in 2013, just the way the GOP prepared for 2010 in 2000. If we want it we have to do it. PA did it in 2012 and they can do it again.

89. I'm not optimistic because, as Rachel Maddow explained last night,

the gerrymandering itself makes it unlikely that even high turnout will allow Dems to gain any ground on any issue statewide. More voters in the state voted for Democrats to represent them, but far more Rs were sent to Washington. The PA statehouse is pure red now. And if they end winner-take-all electoral votes, we end up going red in the presidential eliciting as well.

Is this what Democracy looks like? Not to me.

18. SO COOL!

I'm so happy the White House and Congressional Democrats are finally playing "hard ball" with the GOP.

They (Republicans) have a history of shoving what they want down Democrats' throats so it's especially refreshing to give them a dose of their own medicine. And . . . wow! They can dish it out but can't take it!

All the neocon talking heads are about to explode!

They need to accept (which they won't) that they're now the MINORITY and need to find ways to get tiny little bits of what they want while accepting the MAJORITY gets most of what it wants.

After they get blamed for taking us over the "fiscal cliff" and suffer through the upcoming filibuster reforms they brought on themselves, maybe they'll have had a sufficient butt-kicking to accept their place.

38. I don't

 

believe Boner has to stand up to the teabaggers, because I believe he and Mitch McConnell are both in with them. I think Boner is the one keeping people in line that wants to break ranks and rumors are his ranks are cracking. I think the Dems need to talk to individual house members secretly and get their own pulse behind Boner's back. It is hard to believe all those House members, just represent the one percent. I do not think they are representing all their constituents when 60 percent of Republicans don't want to raise the medicare age. It is best to go around these fools and communicate to their constituents like Senator Sanders said.

We do that all the time in War to over throw Dictatorial regimes. That is what I got a sense of in the Election, when you had bosses threatening employees, whom to vote for. That tells me how the GOP is keeping their voters in line besides their race baiting. There is something to their Union hating too. They see Unions as a threat.

Please proceed, Mr. President. (I did not think that 18th Century reference up, but do not remember who to credit/quote.)

45. I'm not sure I want to see a hard plan from the GOP

I can well imagine what would be in it:

Eliminate Obamacare
Cut entitlements
Cut all loopholes
Get rid of EIC
Lower the capital gains tax
No tax increases on anyone

We can probably convince 25 congressmen and enough GOP senators to go along with our plan.

about 'The Cliff.' There is no cliff. This is just a Repugnant Talking Point to get everyone all fearful and Wall Street an excuse to make money on the Short Side.

Why can't C-Span televise these 'Cliff' meetings?

66. And of course they are hypocritical enough . . .

to pull the "bipartisan" card on the President . . . who has spent the last four years bending over backwards in gracious overtures towards bipartisanship . . . all of which the Cons completely ignored.

Just one more example of how they get away with exactly what they accuse their opponent of.

Kudos to the President for standing firm, and I hope he feels free to use the bipartisan card back on them anytime he wants.

74. The basic attitude coming from Bonehead and the House Republicans:

"WHAT election?"

Here's hoping Obama lets them find out in no uncertain terms, and quickly.

78. And this blockage worked so well for Newt when he

stood up to Bill Clinton and was gonna shut down the government. Back in 1994.


Newt lost his seat as Speaker of the House and Congress looked like fools. Big Bill looked like the good guy.
