breaking news, House GOP calls off vote on Boehner’s ‘Plan B’

Republicans quit on America again, go off on another vacation.
"The House called off a vote Thursday evening on House Speaker John A. Boehner’s plan to extend tax cuts on income up to $1 million — known as Plan B — because he could not muster enough votes from fellow Republicans to pass the measure.

The move leaves unclear the next step in the negotiations over the fiscal cliff set to hit the country’s economy on the first of the new year. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said the House has adjourned until after Christmas."

1. House Republicans decide to quit the Republican Party and form a Tea Party

 

leaving the Republican a gaping hole, giving way to Speaker of the House Pelosi, and Social Security is OFF the table, and Defense/Gas & oil subsidies are on the table ready for a major surgery to remove the bloat.
