John Boehner has done it again. He is raising his freshly laundered white flag of surrender. Insane Nancy Pelosi just said she thought the Democrats had a shot at the House in 2012. Thanks to John Boehner, they just might.
What has he done?
He has announced that new tax revenues will be a part of the bipartisan supercommittee deal.
From CBS NEWS:
House Speaker John Boehner addressed one of the biggest sticking points for the 12 member Congressional "supercommittee" today, acknowledging that any bipartisan agreement will need to include some new tax revenue.
"I think there is room for revenues, but I think there clearly is a limit to the amount of revenues that are available," Boehner told reporters.
The comment was significant because Boehner and other Republican leaders have repeatedly insisted that tax increases are off the table, and most Republicans in the House and Senate have signed a "taxpayer protection pledge" vowing not to raise taxes.
John Boehner is for raising taxes.
Can I ask, what the hell is he thinking? Wait, I am assuming facts not in evidence. I am assuming he is thinking or even capable of thinking.
John, if you can tear yourself away from your drink, your cigarette and your next round of golf, perhaps you can justify this.
Should Americans, any Americans pay more taxes so the Obama regime can send more money to companies like Solyndra?
Can you tell us why Americans should continue to fund the Department of Education, which has been an absolute failure?
Can you tell us why Americans are paying for the building of Mosques with American tax dollars in Afghanistan?
Can you tell us why, when the Government Accounting Office has identified hundreds of billions of dollars in waste, fraud and duplication of services, ANY American should have to pay another dime in taxes until the government can wisely handle the money we currently are forced to give it?
John Boehner, you are a joke. What are Republicans going to run on next year? How are Republicans different from Democrats? Democrats spend money, so do Republicans. Democrats raise taxes and so do Republicans, thanks to you.
Do you have anything that you stand for?
Here is a clue. The Tea Party brought the GOP back from the edge of political extinction and we did not do it so you could continue to grow government. We need taxes cut to stimulate the economy. We need spending cut because we cannot afford it. You only seem to need another ten minutes in the tanning bed.
Why should we conservatives continue to support you when all you want to do is tax and spend?
The answer is we are not.
We are fed up with you. We did not just decide to create a John Boehner fan club. We wanted responsible leaders. At this point, Lindsay Lohan is more responsible than John Boehner.
John Boehner, do us a favor. Go have a drink, which is what you seem to do best, and let someone competent lead.
I just sent this to my fellow SW Ohio Tea Party friends...
John Boehner says he is OK with raising taxes.
Shall the Ohio 8th US Congressional District get OK with dumping John Boehner?
Hell yes, I love that idea.
I wouldn't know about the cajones, but I know she has a spine.
Bohner is gonna fold like a lawn chair.
