House Republicans abruptly put off a vote on a tax bill designed to help avert a year-end fiscal crisis, as House Speaker John Boehner said it ‘did not have sufficient support from our members to pass‘…

[snip]

That’s what you get, Boehner, for not sticking to your agreement to NOT raise taxes.

    B == Boehner == Boner == Bonehead == Stupid. It would have done nothing to fix the shit sandwich we need to eat.

    Playing politics with the peoples future fails every time it is tried…Stand up Boehner! Stand for the future of our country and the people that pay tour 6 figure salary! Do the right thing and tell Obama “HELL NO!”

    You look so distinguished with your beard! (Of course, if that isn’t you, then I haven’t a clue whether you look distinguished at all. But this guy does.)

    p.s. that’s a really big beer. Did you drive yourself home after 1 or 12 of those?

    Actually ‘Plan B’ was very smart, it raised taxes on those making over $1MM while creating a donut hole for incomes between $250k and $1MM. The best part of the deal had folks making between $10k and $250k PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE!

    That’s really me. and I cab both ways. 14 bucks round trip for the cab, or 10K for a DUI and the possibility of hurting someone…14 bucks is a no brainer.

    @Menderman–

    The beard makes you look distinguished. And as it was a still photo, no shaking or trembling is discernible.

    I forgot about the Mayans. Heck, I’m ready for the end of the world if it comes. I know where I’m going.

    Mendermann – thanks for the photo! Not sure how I’d pictured you in my mind – given your avatar – but like your pic!

    MaryfromMarin – as maddening as all this is, I keep reminding myself that God is in control and this too shall pass – or it won’t and we’ll end up in Heaven.

    To Boehner’s tax plan and the vote – AhHaHaHAAAAAAA!!!!

    Wrote my Rep and both Senators and got assurances from all three that they would not vote for ANY tax increases.
