Here's a little refresher on the non-accomplishment of the lowest rated, least effective 112th Boehner-House congress:
House Bills passed:
46 Bills on Abortion
113 Bills on Religion
73 Bills on Family Relationships
36 Bills on Marriage
72 Bills on Read More... Firearms
604 Bills on Taxation
437 Bills on Govt Investigations
Bills attempted and failed to be passed even by the GOP:
33 attempts to Defund Obamacare.....Failed (Costing taxpayers $50 million bucks)
15 attempts to Cut Funding for Planned Parenthood......Failed
3 Attempts to Cut Funding for VA Hospitals.......Failed.
GOP blocked bills:
Blocked bill to aid Small Business
Blocked Unemployment extension
Blocked Bank Reform Bills
Blocked Campaign Finance Reform and open Contributions Law
Blocked MULTIPLE Jobs Bills
Blocked Infrastructure Bill
Blocked Ending Tax Breaks for companies that Outsource Jobs
Blocked Wall Street Reform
Blocked Energy Legislation
Blocked Mine Safety Bill
Blocked Oil Spill Liability Cap increase
Blocked Bill to lower Oil Company Tax Breaks
Blocked Bill to impose charging American Oil Companies on Oil achieved in the Gulf
Congressional GOPTea numbers are greatly reduced thanks to the shellacking American voters handed them in the 2012 elections. And we're going to do that again in 2014 until everyone in this sorry Party is gone from our Government. We the people demand and deserve a Government of the people, by the people and for the people, which the GOPTea decidedly arenít!

John Boehner and GOP leadership know that anything out of the Senate today would pass... but with a minority of Republican votes and a majority of Democratic votes.

Boehner knows that this would spell the end of his Speakership.

Hence, no vote.

For the Republican party, once again politics trumps policy to the detriment of the nation

No you blind fool, you will never recover after Obama takes away your money with healthcare and when you are ultimately destroyed.

The only reason the "fiscal cliff" even exist is because the House Republicans held the country hostage during the last debt ceiling vote and turned it into a national crisis.

Good riddance to the Red Coats in the 112th Congress - worst House of Reps EVER!

Maybe if you didn't spend all your time legislating womenís privates while chanting Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!, going on one month vacations every two weeks, and passing the same useless resolution over & over & over 33 times or filibustering nearly 400 pieces of legislation - you know, the peopleís work - you might have accomplished something.

Oh yea you did - you made Trumanís Do Nothing Congress look industrious!

Republicans know that we the middle class (and that is way under $250k) fund their wars, we bail them out, we subsidize them etc.
The Republicans don't care about Jesus, they worship the Lord of fire and brimstone.

OK, fine. No deal today. America goes over the cliff tomorrow (1/1/13).

Now the Democrats can get serious about both taxes and spending cuts - and by "serious" I mean absolutely no compromising.

By refusing to vote today, House Republicans have forfeited the sweetheart deal of only raising income tax rates on those who earn over $400,000 ($450,000 for a family).

Beginning tomorrow, that deal is no longer on the table. Now negotiations begin at $250,000, and Democrats must flatly refuse to negotiate that number AT ALL! Every single individual earning over $250,000 per year will see their income tax increase for every dollar they earn over $250,000 NO MATTER WHAT. No exceptions. No excuses. Non-negotiable.

Of course the upper 1% are going to scream bloody murder about that, but they will have only the House Republicans to blame.
