Obama “compromise”: $1.6 trillion in tax increases in exchange for spending… increases?

Wow.  The nerve on that guy.

Republicans may have to just walk away and let us go over the fiscal cliff, and then use the debt ceiling to force entitlement reform and a path to long-term sustainability.

As if Boehner the surrender monkey would have the backbone for that.

    We hope we won’t have to watch “The Crying Game” again…

    If we go over the fiscal cliff taxes go up and military spending gets cut, Obama gets to blame the republicans, if republicans negotiatiate, taxes go up, Medicare gets cut and Obama blames republicans.

    I think the real surrender happened when boner, Err I mean bohner negotiated the sequester, that is one man that needs a primary challenge bad

    Stop playing with Ogabe. Let him own it all. He says he knows the way to prosperity, so let him do his thing alone.

    Poli:

    I suspect the momentum for the GOP to walk away and start passing their own bills is growing. They are simply wasting time with the Obama stall tactics.

    A good place to start would be to freeze all discretionary spending at last year’s level. Then start on 5% reductions on a program by program basis. Introduce means testing for all entitlements and raise the limit requirements by 5% per year.

    Will Boehner have the backbone to do it? All other avenues are either political suicide or destruction of our currency so he might actually do it. We’ll see.

    Obama’s first offer was $1 trillion. The second was $1.2 trillion and now it’s $1.6 trillion.

    I wish I had the money to imitate John Galt…

    I agree with WC…Obama would cry disaster, but long term this will benefit the country. In the end, Obama would be shown to be the deceiver. I’m tired of his lies anyway.

    And, yes, no more crying from that SOB Boehner. As we all know, he needs a pair.

    How about this. The upper class in this country plainly voted for someone who wants to redistribute their income. Their Media elected him and they contributed to his campaign chest big time. Why not take them upon the offer and raise their taxes since they supported him. True there are still a few Republican rich but since they don’t buy any media or do anything to help the rest of us beat Obama they can just pay up to.
