Is Plan B really so bad?

Boehner announced votes on two amendments: one raising taxes above $250k and the other above a million. If Dem. House members voted for the first version and could get 25 Republicans, that would deal with middle-class tax increases. Then they could deal with spending in the new congress. That would allow a more robust public debate about entitlements.

3. Yes. If you think this is not really so bad, then you know nothing about

 

chained CPI and what it does to people as they get older. But, sure, of course this very honest President will index these changes and the Republicans who are in office next will follow these indexes. We are now operating under inverse fascism.

4. That is not what plan B is

It's a vote in the House on the Bush tax cuts. It doesn't have anything to do with spending, SS or any of that.

6. What total package?

I feel like I'm talking to the wall here. Plan B would be INSTEAD of the deal currently being negotiated.

9. The way

 

I see it, Plan B is even a worse deal for the poor and middle class and a windfall for a Congress with 250 millionaires. Boehner and Canter gets a tax cut on the first one million dollars by putting the burden on poor and middle class people to make up the difference in spending cuts. Especially when he is worth over four million and Canter is worth over five million Dollars. It is more tax cuts for them.

10. It is conceivable the other vote would prevail

the one raising taxes over $250k. I suppose it's not likely, but most seem to think Boehner can't get the votes for the million dollar version.
