Americans support LONG TERM APPROACH TO PAYROLL TAXES!
Yes we support John Boehner !
The idiots are at it again telling us what we think and they could not be further from the truth! Shepard Smith shows his leftist side once again in pumping up rhetoric that supports his FALSE generated crap about how Americans would conceivably support legislation that covers a tax relief for TWO stinking months!
Shepard you show your idiocy every time you open your mouth!
BUSINESS DO NOT MAKE TWO MONTH business plans … THEY ARE YEARLY!!!! AND SOME TIME 3 AND 5 YEAR PLANS ! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE FOOLING “SHEP”, WITH YOUR SUPPOSED NEWS REPORT????? YOU BELONG ON MSLSD along with anyone who would try to sell the story you are trying to sell! If Americans have to pay higher taxes for two months to get a solid tax plan that cuts them for an ENTIRE year , then we WILL, and we SUPPORT JOHN BEOHNER TO GET ONE! WE WANT AND DESIRE LONG TERM LOW TAX STRUCTURE FOR PLANNING PURPOSES!
3 cheers for Boehnor for walking out of a staged democrat propaganda tool for their BS election process and NOTHING more!
Shep the Enquirer has more credibility than you do! That is sad. However we the people have our own news network that you are really not included in on! We listen daily to you just for laughs and wonder if you will ever have the integrity to report the TRUTH! However we no longer look to you for weather let alone the news ! Stop with your teleprompter controlled questions and responses and get real!! We don’t believe you ever will which is why you keep talking to your self, and the rest of us … well, we just laugh!
The White Houseis touting traffic on social networking sites as a movement it started after asking people to tweet how they would spend the average $40 per paycheck they would lose if Congress doesn’t pass payroll tax cut extension by the end of the year.Press Secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday the White House has gotten more than 17,000 responses to the campaign aimed at pressuring House Republicans to pass a two-month extension. Using the twitterhash tag #40dollars, people are tweeting how they would spend the money.”The response has been extraordinary,” Carney said. “This matters. This is real, real stuff. This is not about high- stakes poker or political brinksmanship. It’s about 160 million Americans and their families and the impact that failure to act would have on them.”Republicans in the House are stalling on a Senate compromise that would extend the tax cut through February. They argue a one year extension would end uncertainty about the issue and that there’s time to cut a deal before the end of the year. The White House originally proposed a full year extension but as Congressional negotiators worked well into December and were unable to make that happen, Senate Democrats and Republicans cut the shorter-term deal and left town.
This week, the Obama administration is leveraging social media in an attempt to force House Republicans to agree to the compromise.
“$40 a paycheck is over half our household’s grocery expenses,” one tweet read. “It’s not expendable income.” Other tweets included music lessons, clothing and heating oil, though Fox News has not independently verified the authors of the #40dollar tweets.
While the administration highlighted these tweets through emails and at the daily White House press briefing, Boehner called Republicans “the party of lower taxes.” He added that his negotiators are ready to work with Senate negotiators to reach a long-term deal to keep $40 per paycheck in taxpayers’ pockets.
Later Wednesday his Twitter account joined in the online conversation to push back at Senate Democrats.
“By refusing to work w/House on full-year #payroll tax cut, Senate Dems risk raising taxes on avg. families by #40dollars every paycheck,” Boehner’s office tweeted.
The president and the speaker stood firm in their positions during a ten-minute phone call Wednesday afternoon and as they talked, the #40dollar twitter trend continued. Carney said the digital movement sparked by the White House is a sign of a drumbeat that is becoming more audible.
“[T]he voices are growing louder from average Americans, from Republicans in Congress, in the Senate, even in the House now, from respected commentators within the conservative arena: The House needs to act,” Carney said.
There goes Shep in his monkey see monkey do behavior, as he refuses to check into really what the right are thinking and pretty soon people will stop tuning into him even for the laughs. While many Americans doubt that agreement can be reached before the first of the year, well we are ready and set to wait until it is RIGHT! Any legislation that continues to do it at two month and six month wacks is not legislation. It is CORRUPT political policy making !!! Thereby creating political law, not anything close to the fairness of the “natural law” on which or Constitution is based!
From Hot Air:
UPDATE: From Grover Norquist.
“The deal all along was that if the president wanted to raise the debt ceiling by $2.5T he would have to come up with $2.5T in cuts without a tax increase. That didn’t happen.”~ Grover Norquist
Speaker Boehner will be holding a presser shortly to update everyone on tonight’s developments. As soon as we have the text it will be posted here.
Boehner: (This is an abbreviated version of the full comments the Speaker will deliver)
No one wants to default on the full faith and credit of the United States and I have confidence that we will not.
The White House moved the goal posts. They demanded $400B more in taxes on the American people. And they refused to get serious on the issue of cutting taxes and protecting the best interests of the people of the United States.
This is a serious debate. It’s a debate about jobs, the economy, and the future of our country. Until recently, the president was demanding we increase the debt limit with no strings attached. I immediately responded and said that the American people would not tolerate this without cuts which exceeded the increase in the debt limit, without taxes, and without protecting the future of the people of the United States.
FYI, this wasn’t some canned speech for Boehner they could set up in advance. He’s firing largely from the gut and, if I might say, handling it with a tremendous deal of decorum.
Also, in response to a couple of comments, I’ll try to clean up the text this evening but I was pasting things in and typing pretty fast.
More coverage of Boehner’s comments:
“The White House moved the goalpost,” Boehner said in a news conference, claiming that the talks broke down when the White House demanded an additional $400 billion in new revenues to the $800 billion that was agreed upon, “which was going to be nothing more than a tax increase on the American people.”
Boehner also said, “They refused to get serious about cutting spending and making the tough choices that are facing our country on entitlement reform.”
In a hastily arranged news conference in the White House briefing room before Boehner spoke to reporters, a visibly irritated Obama said that “it’s hard to understand why Speaker Boehner would walk away from this deal.”
“This was an extraordinarily fair deal,” he said, explaining that the White House offered more than $1 trillion in cuts to discretionary spending, both domestic and defense and $650 billion in cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security in exchange for $1.2 trillion in new revenues.
After informing the president in a phone call of his decision to walk away, Boehner sent a letter to lawmakers saying, “In the end, we couldn’t connect. Not because of different personalities, but because of different visions for our country.”
Amen! John Boehnor! Even that is giving away far, far , far too much in fact we should be seeing 4 Trillion cut from the next 10 years!
Shep you need to take your anchor chair somewhere where people want to listen to your democrat propaganda because you are talking to the wrong audience! Get it ??? Well if not you need to !
