If Boehner agrees to ANY further Obama tax increases, he will be fired.
As long as Boehner stands firm against the Communist dictator, we love him.
All you got to do is look at Boehner's Welfare 8th Congressional District that he represent and the Welfare Rats keep re-electing because of that but that is conservatism to them Compassinate Conservatism I should say.

The $700 billion is not a cut, but just a transfer to Obamacare that robs senior citizens of medical care to fund care for illegal aliens.
Yet another lie.

There is no reduction in medicare benefits & illegal aliens do not get care from the ACA.

Actually no. No "instead" That is a lie.
Obama insisted on spending cuts with some revenue generation through closing loopholes. Something Republicans said they wanted to do. Or are you saying Republicans want to keep each & every loophole?
"Loophole" is a meaningless word. ALL tax credits, deductions, and subsidies should be eliminated.

Start with the Earned Income Credit.

Taxed Enough Already.

Of course they then cheer for losing jobs in the private sector as there are 750,000 fewer paychecks being cashed & spent communities. Fewer Government contracts to fulfill.
Eliminating government contracts and government jobs is the goal.

Washington Times - "Monday marked the first regular workday under sequestration and federal agencies posted more than 400 job ads by 6 p.m.

"Soon, some federal workers will have their wages cut by 20 percent because of the furloughs."

...That makes sense. 400 government job openings while federal workers are taking a 20% cut in wages. Or doesn't it?

<quoted text>The inner city ghettos, projects, and urban preserves of modern America are the breeding ground 'Blue Magnets' of hate filled liberalism. YOUR culture of violence, racism, bigotry, ignorance, poverty, abortion, and killing fields of blacks.
YOU still have not told us why How or Why that happened?
Do your own homework. Every on the adult with a rational mind knows and understands that there were policies set in place back in the 19 forties fifties and sixties that was a discriminatory against black people buying houses outside of the ghetto. Look up white flight and the laws prohibiting black families to buy houses in the new suburban communities even when they were able to afford them. I don't see why you continue to ask the saying stupid questions.
As for the theory you carry on black killing fields. Put white people in a segregated area with limited resources, food, jobs, & housing & you'll have the same results. Whites killing whites to survive. That only makes sense, but what doesn't is white folks of privileged backgrounds killing strangers in masses, or slaughtering their entire family. Shooting up malls schools. Public places of mass gathering. In a sense ones can say ghetto residents killing ghetto residents still equates to killing for a reason however wrong it may be. But the atrocities committed by white folks are done for no reason, at least in the sane reason. So the real question is why has the suburbs become the breeding grounds for mass murdering, incest relationship, welfare recipient, gun crazy white folks? Answer that! Tell me why those of privileged backgrounds have a thing for slaughtering their own

Chief White House Calligrapher Gets Paid $96,725 Per Year

7:39 AM, Mar 6, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER


With the White House closing its doors to public tour groups in order to save money for the sequester, it's worth remembering some of the other costs the White House incurs annually.

Like the "Chief Calligrapher," Patricia A. Blair, who has an annual salary of $96,725, and her two deputies, Debra S. Brown, who gets paid $85,953 per year, and Richard T. Muffler, who gets paid $94,372 every year.

Boehner won his district in 2012 with 99.2% of the votes.

Maybe if you could provide some sources?

I went to a job search site and found this

" Average Calligraphy Salaries

The average salary for calligraphy jobs is $26,000."

We are getting fleeced by our own government.
