Conservatives rebel against Boehner

Conservatives rebel against Boehner

There are 20 comments on the story from Jan 3, 2013, titled Conservatives rebel against Boehner. In it, reports that:

Conservative opposition to John Boehner's reelection as speaker on Thursday was more determined than it originally seemed, as a small band of hard-liners either flat-out opposed the speaker or simply abstained from casting a ballot. There were some signs that conservative resistance to Boehner was well-organized, at least by one member who has never been a big fan of the Ohio Republican.

Attention Americans: Your paychecks in 2013 are about to get smaller thanks to the Fiscal Cliff compromise deal that passed Congress on January 1, 2013.

What? I thought we were just screwing the rich people. Now I find out every single person will get 2% less in their paycheck. I hope we don't avoid to many more 'cliffs'

That 2%, stolen from the Social Secuurity "lockbox" should never have been cut. You are paying it toward yourself, your own retirement.

Worry more about the high taxes paid, mostly in the high COLA "blue states" which are wealth-transferred to the poor "red states" which are actualy welfare subsidized.

And even more to the point, the Capital gains tax rate should be the same as earned income. That it is not is going to hurt you a lot more than 2% aid to your future self.

Good point Billy. What you're saying is Obama made a big mistake. Obama cut the tax and made a promise that NO middle class worker would see his taxes go up, and they did. In some parts of the country that would be considered a lie. Contrary to progressive logic, not everyone can afford to lose a thousand or two a year, even to to fund a good cause.

Yes, Obama should never have cut the SS tax; and NO, he NEVER promised " NO middle class worker would see his taxes go up."

You may have president obama confused with president George H W ("read my lips" Bush.)

The SS tax cut, which I opposed, was never supposed to be permenant.
I've never heard anyone say that Obama is error free, or perfect. I think he should freeze all Federal spending in the Congresional Districts of any representative who votes against the Fed lending ceiling being raised...
No airports, no military bases, no federal court, no Social Security work, all Federal offices closed down, employees furlowed; all highway & other Federal projects stopped; and the military bases should be closed for good and sold, with troops moved to districts that love their country.

No, the SS tax cut was a mistake, and should have expired. All it is is a raid on the "SS lockbox." If it were accompanied by an increase in, or elimination of the SS incoome tax ceiling, that would have been better; as the money lost by workers payments would hae been paid by those who can better afford to ay them.

And, Social Security is not a "good cause," it is all of our future retirement. Are you a leach on society? I hope not.

Really Bill? A quote from President Obama:

"I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes." (look it up, it's easy to find)Where I come from he just plain lied.

If you plan on SS for a retirement, my condolences. I'm 62, still working and paying for those that don't. That being said, we do have some common ground. I agree, we need to bring our military home. I see we are now sending troops to Libya, you know, in an 'advisory' capacity. Bring them home and put them on the US borders.

SS not included in that statement, and the GOZP in congress wrote the bill, not Obama.

I'm older than you, still working, and will use my SS for suplimenting my 401k. Good luck.
