This is great news for President Obama.
His legacy will be assured if he can reduce our economy to that of Greece or Spain. Massively expensive Bureaucracy always kill their Countries.

What a fantastic time for America's enemies both within the Democratic Party and Abroad.

If Boehner wants to out tax the President he has to stand alone. He can remove the Republicans from key chairs, but he cannot force them to vote for tax increases. Obama never would cut taxes, he is lying in his teeth, so give him what he wants, and when we all feel his pain we will pay attention next election.

Unbelievable. Boehner came up Snake Eyes with his own proposal this week, McConnell filibustered his own Bill in the Senate last week. Is that not the Keystone Cops takes over Congress. This is a preview of how the Republicans from 2001 to 2007 under George Bush ruined the American economy

The Republican party is discombobulated and taking America down the sewer with them. Boehner is sure to be another disgraced One Term Speaker in the same fashion as Newt Gingrich. This is 1996 all over again.

The Republicans screwed America into another recession and, are now slithering out of Washington to return to their districts and Christmas Vacation.

This brings a new meaning to Lame Duck Session

59 Million Anti-Americans voted for the dysfunctional Republicans in the Election, what would have become of America had Romney won the Election? Thank goodness for President Obama.

Boehner and America has been taken hostage by the Tea Party coup d'tat intent on protecting the tax policies that benefit the American Wealthy. They are protecting the Elitist Entitlements over the American Middle Class tax cuts.

They would rather see everybody taxes increased than to see the Wealthy pay a fair tax rate.

I don't care what McConnell, and Boehner do as long as they keep the Democrats from destroying the country. If they can't do it the conservatives will hold the line, and do it for them. Liberals can do the famous dance they all do when they don't get their way.

In case you never figured it out, tax increases were a given from the start and now the question is how much for how wealthy. What's on the table now is cutting "entitlements" and I agree with Obams: dock social security for the rich so that we can laugh at Republicans saying "we won".

What spending spree? You speak as if Bush before Obama approved Democrat Spending Request...... ROFLMAO

and, we know the Republicans in the House has not approve any Spending, they cut spending so much so that one of our Ambassador were killed with 3 other Americans as a result of the GOP Spend Cuts.....

What spending...... ROFLMAO

When you say things like that, it provides doubts you understand how Congress and Spending Legislation is approved by the House of Representatives.

Or, you're lashing out out of anger and embarrassment from the idiocy practiced in congress by your representatives in the Republican Conference.

Good, let's go over the cliff, the few democrats who actually have jobs can pay more taxes.
More importantly than taxing the working poor is the dismantling of the Bush Tax policies that benefit the wealthy in America. It's time they began to pay their fair share on their income.

We finally get to see the Tax Entitlements granted to major corporations and oil companies dissolve instead of seeing the Senior Citizens and Disabled in America carry the burden of the debt from the Bush Tax Cuts and Republican reckless spending with the Industrial War Complex.

The wealthy does pay a fair tax rate. Maybe stop some loopholes.

Might Funny how the script has turned around and now, after promoting his Bill all day and calling out Obama, Boehner's proposal has been thoroughly rejected by the Republican conference, and last Week, McConnell filibustered his own Senate Bill.......

If that's not Imbecile Politics...... ROFLMAO This bring a new meaning to "Lame Duck Session".... ROFLMAO

Cut entitlements. Force the idle to begin paying their way. Let them take care of their own children, and stop breeding like rabbits. They will get some self esteem, and stop feeling so useless. We have given them more luxuries then working people have. No wonder they are not in a hurry to go to work.

We needed your voice as Bush was destroying the Economy and the Country in 2006, 2007, and 2008. You're a bit late to the destroy party, but you're input is welcome.

It's amazing how you guys speak as if any fiscal crisis we're in isn't due to the idiocy practiced by George Bush and the brought and paid for Republicans.

You couldn't buy an elections, and tried. You couldn't steal and elections, and tried very hard too.

Now as the Majority in the House, have shown yourselves through the current crop of representatives, to be total and complete failures.

Looks like you guys can't manage a fruit stand on the side of the road. The Republican party couldn't collect tolls without getting confused.

Are you also for cutting the corporate entitlements and those entitlements that provide tax concessions to the wealthy, or are you strictly intending to cut the entitlements like college tuition, social security and medicare?

Your Republicans politicians are only intending to cut the social security and medicare entitlements and those taxing benefits to the working poor.

The morons voting, elected to block benefits for the working guy in America, to protect the taxing benefits for the top 2% of income earners.
