Boehner and the House Republicans idea of compromise is when the Democrats get on board with everything they want and they concede nothing.

Their strategy for the last several years has been to prevent any progress at all and HOPE that America fails to proove what a bad President Obama is.

There were claims made that their priority 1 was to make Obama a 1 term president, not help the economy or create jobs or fix our infrastructure... simply C block the President.

It's treasonous and it didn't work.

America can't wait for a Republican president for these ass clowns to start working together, we need real solutions now.

Under "crock of the day"

It was kind of a crock because they President consistently conceded things to the Republicans that they asked for in order to get their support. They still obstructed.

The leadership within congress met days after the 2008 election and came up with a strategy of obstruction and no compromise. The reason they said is because they felt like "At worst we can say he is a promise breaker, because he said he would bring Democrats and Republicans together to get things done. If we refuse to cooperate we can say he broke his promise of bipartisanship and say he has had a dysfunctional administration that can't get things done"

As far as this tax article you posted it is Republicans saying the same thing a different way.

If you listen to what he said he said "They are open to new revenues as long as they are growth based revenues"

That is code for cutting taxes. It is the Republican theory that has been disproven that is you cut taxes the economy will grow so much that it will broaden the tax base and you will actually raise more revenue because more people are paying taxes.

Unfortunately, it isn't true.

Recently the Congressional Research Service did a study called ""Taxes and the Economy: An Economic Analysis of the Top Tax Rates Since 1945."

And their findings were basically this:

Analysis of six decades of data found that top tax rates "have had little association with saving, investment, or productivity growth." However, the study found that reductions of capital gains taxes and top marginal rate taxes have led to greater income inequality. Past studies cited in the report have suggested that a broad-based tax rate reduction can have "a small to modest, positive effect on economic growth" or "no effect on economic growth."

So what the Republicans are offering is "growth based revenues" that don't exist (in fact the CBO doesn't even consider it when they are scoring these things) and it is incredibly irresponsible with our current deficit and debt crisis. It would actually add to it instead of reduce it.

And it is exactly why I didn't vote for Mitt Romney because he would have destroyed our Federal Budget with these outdated and disproven ideas of imaginary growth from tax cuts.

No one remembers Reagans tax increases that had to be done to keep his deficit spending from completely killing us, instead it only killed Bush I's second term

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
