White House: Obama ´Will
Not Sign´ a Deal Unless
It Increases Taxes

Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/30/2012 10:46:28 AM

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said today that no matter what else happens President Barack Obama--who is the only modern president other than Franklin Roosevelt to serve in four years when federal spending topped 24 percent of GDP--will not sign a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff that will arrive at the end of this year unless that deal increases taxes. "So the President made clear that he is not wedded to every detail of his plan," said Carney. "The President has also made categorically and abundantly clear that he will not sign an extension of the

If they don´t do anything he gets his way and taxes increase. So he sees it as a win-win, except if the pubbies cave he will get more out of them than just a tax increase when the reductions disappear next year.

E repubs should just go home for the holidays. Melt the tax cuts expire... Raise taxes on everyone, let the cuts kick in. Let those entitlement programs finally feel the pain.maybe it´ll make them start to send illegals home, when they get in line for entitlements before citizens after the cuts.

They are going to be blamed for anything and everything if zippy and the Dems don´t get everything they want anyway, so just call it a year. They´ve already proven they are at best incapable of stopping, if not complicit, in allowing this administration to run roughshod over the constitution, and their own irrelevance.

We should put all of them down at Gitmo.

"It’s bad economic policy and we cannot afford it."

Right. But ADDING another $50 billion in new spending on top of the over-the-top spending we already have is what? The work of an economic genius? And no spending cuts when they are clearly needed - that´s another mark of good economic policy?

Oh - wait - I get it ! The socialist model! How SILLY of me! We´re going to SPEND our way to prosperity! Of course!

Obama is forgetting something -- WE won. We The People elected a GOP House in a landslide again because we want an end to out-of-control spending.

The House should vote to extend the tax cuts for everybody. Lower taxes equals higher economic growth. Let the Obama and Senate refuse to sign on -- they will then own the tax increases, diminished growth and job losses that result.

Go home, Republicans.

Now that Obama has stated he will not sign a deal unless it raises taxes, and the Republicans have stated they will not sign a deal that does, the negotiations should be over.

The only reason John Boehner and Mitch McConnell would keep the negotiations going now would be because they have such contempt for their fellow Republican Congressmen that they believe them capable of dishonoring their anti-tax pledges and caving in to Obama.

The honorable Republicans in Congress should be on their way home by now.

Compromise, Chicago style.

Obama and the Democrats really have a thing about raising taxes, don´t they? It is a point of honor for them. Fairness is the thing. Some people have more money than they need. Obama said so himself. "At some point," said the president, "a person has enough money," He didn´t specify the figure or how it is arrived at. It may be one of those things like pornography, hard to to define, but you know it when you see it.

Taxes! Got to raise those taxes! There is a principle involved.

Too bad Obama and the Democrats can´t say they won´t support a bill unless it includes genuine, effective, honest to goodness spending cuts and controls. Why not? Just to be fair and bipartisan, why not say no bill unless BOTH tax increases and honest spending cuts and controls included. Not the usual, phony, make-believe spending cuts and controls, mind you, but real ones.

Seems like the bipartisan thing would be to emphasize raising revenue and controlling spending equally. But no. Not for Democrats. Never for Democrats.

Democrats have no intention of cutting spending. Everybody knows that. They don´t need to say it. We know, they know it, they know we know it, we know they know we know it etc. No spending cuts, not for real. Just tax increases.

Just think what that $4,000,000 family vacation Obama is scheduled to take could buy if wisely used. Couldn´t the American people make better use of those funds than the Obama family on vacation? How come in this time of fiscal crisis Obama and family are charging four million bucks to the American taxpayer? What kind of credit card does he think he has, a no limit one?

I want the same for him as white guys like Adolf. I know I am not alone in hoping he exposed and impeached and convicted and sentenced and you know the rest.

In this clip, 0bama acknowledges that he understands higher tax rates cause lower tax revenues and he doesn´t care!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJimLZRC9N8

The House should read a transcript of this clip into the Congressional record, then pass the exact same budget as 2004, with no funds allocated to programs, departments or offices that did not exist then.

Every Republican should be trying to get on as many media events as possible to ridicule 0bama´s obstructionism for refusing to compromise, and his stated opposition to higher tax revenues through lower tax rates.

Use Alinsky´s Rules against him, laugh at his announced opposition to higher revenues! make him a laughingstock for saying he won´t sign the bill before they even debate and vote for what is in the bill! Force him to eat his words!

And if he vetoes the bill, try to override the veto, then vote for a bill that has even more spending cuts...to his preferred programs.

Well, this is one way to handle corruption and government abuse: Make it the official thing to do. A group of Democratic senators urged the Obama administration on Thursday to cap the amount of political activity that tax-exempt 501(c)(4) groups can engage in at 5 to 15 percent. The 15 senators, in public comments on a proposed regulation change that grew out of the IRS targeting controversy, said that the rules need to ensure that 501(c)(4)s can’t use their tax-exempt status to go around campaign finance rules. “You will undoubtedly receive complaints from certain corners that these proposed rules will

White House records reveal the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has completed its review of the DOJ rule, one of 23 executive actions ordered by President Obama more than a year ago in response to the 2012 shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn. The exact timing of the planned action was not clear Friday afternoon. The final rule sets out three changes to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), created 20 years ago in an effort to keep guns out of the wrong hands. The updated regulations will grant tribal police access to NICS and authorize law enforcement agencies to use

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is scrapping a controversial study about newsroom practices. “The FCC will not move forward with the Critical Information Needs study," an agency spokesman said Friday, referring to an FCC study that would have involved going into U.S. newsrooms to examine their editorial practices. The backlash to the study grew after a Republican on the FCC, Ajit Pai, published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal warning that the agency "plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run." Responding to the backlash,

Newly released documents from the Clinton Presidential Library reveal that Hillary Clinton and her aides have been struggling to manage her media image since the early days of her husband’s administration. The problem is one that´s dogged her throughout her career, hobbled her 2008 presidential bid and could continue to be an issue in a potential 2016 White House campaign. According to the new papers that span Bill Clinton’s eight-year term, the then-first lady’s aides created strategies to maximize her exposure in venues where she felt most comfortable, like town-hall style events and local media, noting her “aversion” to

President Obama on Friday offered a staunch defense of his agenda in a fiery speech to the Democratic National Committee winter meeting, where he said Republicans were "0 for 2" in trying to turn back his agenda. Obama, rallying the party faithful ahead of November´s crucial midterm elections, urged Democrats to make Republicans go “0 for 3.” “The top Republican in the Senate said his top priority wasn´t to create jobs or expand opportunity, but to beat me,” said Obama. “So let´s look at the scorecard. They´re 0 for 2. This November, let´s make them 0 for 3.” In the speech, the president

Michelle Obama is everywhere these days -- and the White House plans to keep her in the spotlight through November´s midterms. The first lady is pushing a ban on junk-food ads and trumpeting new nutrition labels -- in addition to doing comedy skits with Jimmy Fallon and Will Ferrell -- as part of a ramped-up schedule for arguably the most popular Democratic woman in Washington. With President Obama seen as a potential albatross in competitive congressional races, some Democrats are clamoring for the first lady to take a more active role to fend off the GOP effort to take back the

Charles Krauthammer told viewers Friday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that President Obama´s statement on the latest Ukraine developments showed "weakness," and implied that "we´re not really going to do anything" about the political upheaval in Ukraine. On Friday, armed men, allegedly Russian military forces, entered the Crimea region and took control of two airports. President Obama then delivered a message from the White House briefing room, saying he was "deeply concerned" by the reports and that "there will be costs" for any military intervention in Ukraine, though he declined to specify what those costs might be.

I´ve been lamenting Republicans´ haphazard and sclerotic response to Harry Reid´s Obamacare smears, wondering with frustration why the party hadn´t produced any instant YouTube ads or mobilized to draw attention to the comments. Last night I received word from the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) -- the group devoted to relegating Reid to minority status -- that they were working on it. They´ve since shared their production exclusively with Townhall: If you´re wondering why the ad doesn´t actually feature Reid´s remarks, Senate rules severely restrict campaign committees´ ability to use floor footage in ads.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

Vice President Joe Biden has revealed that the President assigned him ‘every s*** job in the world’ but he still wasn’t able to win Obama’s full support and began being effectively frozen out after one of his infamous gaffes. The 71-year-old argued that he was happy to do the less glamorous tasks- like handling the at-times petty Senate fights and calming the fears of the infamously paranoid President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai- but only at a price. ‘When the president asked me what portfolio did I want, I said, “Base it on what you want of me to help you

According to Kathleen Pender, a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle, the couple who found in cans buried on their property more than 1,400 rare gold coins worth more than $10 million will probably owe close to half of that sum in federal and state income tax, whether or not they sell the coins.

The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom. Her lawyers and a band of supporters, including

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

The question isn’t why Arthur Chu brought his peculiar, buzzer-smacking brand of game play to “Jeopardy.” The question is why, in 50 long years of the show’s history, more people haven’t done the same. Chu, if you haven’t heard of him, is the “Jeopardy” contestant nonchalantly bulldozing America’s collective nostalgic vision for how game shows should work, who cruised to his eighth straight victory on Thursday night. The insurance compliance technician from Ohio who is also a “stand-up comedian, Shakespearean actor, improviser, tour guide, genius and, most importantly, voiceover artist,” according to his Web site — has used his renegade style

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama´s re-election. The administration´s tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify. The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it.

SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Heightened Russian military activity in Crimea on Friday prompted a stern warning from President Obama and a deepening sense of crisis among the leaders of the new Ukrainian government in Kiev. U.S. officials said Russian troops had entered Crimea, and Obama told reporters Friday evening that he was “deeply concerned by reports of military movements” and that there “will be costs for any military intervention.” Earlier in the day, the new Ukrainian government said that hundreds of soldiers in green camouflage, without insignia but carrying military-style automatic rifles, had taken over two airports in Crimea.
