|Is John Boehner Dumb Enough to Take Obama’s Lopsided Deal?||Did You Know This Is “Islamophobia Awareness Month?” Pat Condell Did|
Yep. But this is what Democrats want. This is what Liberals voted for: catastrophic ruin. All in the name of “fairness.”
Well, we’re all about to be equally screwed. Happy now, bitches?
“I believe the probability is we’re going over the cliff and I think that would be horrible,” President Clinton’s Chief of Staff Erskine Bowlessaid at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast meeting yesterday. “It would be insane to breach this fiscal cliff, yet I think there is only a one-third possibility we’ll actually get something done before December 31.”
As gloomy as Bowles prediction sounds, it is, if anything, optimistic, if the latest reporting from Politico on the state of the negotiations between Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and President Obama is to be believed.
According to Politico, Boehner is willing to sign off on as much as $1.2 trillion in tax hikes over the next ten years in exchange for as little as $400 billion in Medicare cuts that do not even begin to take effect until 2013. That’s right: Boehner is about to sign off on a deal of $3 dollars in tax hikes now in exchange for $1 dollar in spending cuts 10 years from now. There is no way House Republicans will sacrifice their political careers for such a “grand bargain.”
I’ve been preparing for this for a while. I hope you have, too. Time to let this mother burn to the ground so that we can rebuild it fresh from the ashes.
