6. Weakest. Speaker. Ever.

Seriously, I think in US history, this is the weakest the Speaker of the House has ever been. Henry Clay and Sam Rayburn are rolling in their graves.

7. Total Humiliation

Boner is humiliated- what a joke of a speaker he is. When will the Republicans realize that they were elected to represent "We the People"? When will they realize that they need to govern responsibly?

16. No, I'm in TX-2. The only way to get Hall out is retirement,

die in office, or cut SS.

17. Sorry man, my condolences. May yet go blue in a few years. The GOP lost their supermajority.

That was a shot heard around the bagger world.

14. Because the White house released clear facts to show what a FAIL the Repub. “Plan B” Legislation is

I prefer following this mess at the sourse. Boehner is worse than useless to Americans, So is Cantor. If America did away with their political positions they would not be missed at all. They both should resign.

Congressional Republican “Plan B” Legislation: Cuts Taxes for Millionaires, Fails To Meet The Test Of Balance

read it here http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/12/19/congressional-republican-plan-b-legislation-cuts-taxes-millionaires-fails-meet-test-


long pdf with details http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/docs/congressional_republican_plan_b_analysis.pdf

a bit includes,... Lose about $400 billion in high-income revenue, relative to the Senate-passed middle-class tax cuts bill, with about 70 percent of the lost revenue going to households making more than $1 million: More than 90 percent would go to households with incomes over $500,000.
 Lose another $120 billion in revenue by providing million dollar tax cuts for the 3 in 1,000 wealthiest estates: Plan B makes permanent the current estate tax levels, which provide an average of more than $1 million in tax relief to estates worth more than $7 million, relative to the President’s proposal.
 Raise taxes by an average of $1,000 on 25 million working families with children and students: Plan B does not continue the American Opportunity Tax Credit and improvements to the Child Tax Credit and Earned Income Tax Credit.
 Fail to continue critical tax incentives for business, like the Research & Development credit, energy incentives, and temporary measures like bonus depreciation.
Other Consequences of Moving To Plan B Include
 Leaves in place a sequester that threatens education, research, and our national security.
 Pushes 2 million Americans off their unemployment insurance benefits starting in January. At Christmas time, Plan B would cut off benefits for 2 million workers searching for jobs, something Congress has never done before when unemployment was still 7.7%.
 Cuts reimbursements for doctors seeing Medicare patients by 27 percent......""
