GOP´s $4.6T ´fiscal cliff´
counterproposal rebuffed

USA Today, by Susan Davis

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/3/2012 11:10:43 PM

WASHINGTON — House Republicans sent a counterproposal to avert the "fiscal cliff" to the White House on Monday outlining a $4.6 trillion deficit reduction proposal without raising tax rates. (Snip) The Republicans´ proposal is based on a framework outlined last year by former Clinton White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles, who co-chaired Obama´s debt commission, and included an increase in the eligibility age for Medicare benefits. Republicans did not offer specific language on raising the age in their proposal, but Bowles has supported raising the age to 67. Boehner called it a "la-la land

Step back from the scary words and consider this:

- The "fiscal cliff" gives us a 9% cut across the board in federal expenditures. You won´t get that through negotiations.

- Yes, it raises taxes. But it raises ALL taxes so EVERY American shares the pain in some way.

- Let´s just see how the Obama voters like it when THEIR incomes are in the crosshairs to pay for Big Bird and lobster research.

- Then in 2014-2016 let the GOP campaign as the Party seeking ACROSS-THE-BOARD tax cuts for ALL AMERICANS

I´m a Cliff-Diver because I don´t believe we can get the necessary spending cuts to rein in the Federal Leviathan in any other way. And I´ve been lied to about the "crisis" way too much.

So, go ahead, Mr. Boehner, write it up and pass it in the House; then send it to the Senate. If (or when) the bill stalls in the Senate, or if Mr. Obama refuses to sign it, then the fault is on the Democrats.

I am getting contrary in my golden years so I am of the mind to bring on the fiscal cliff. When the government tells us we will all die a terrible death financially, I am reminded of the same squawking in September of 2008 when they "saved" us. Personally, I believe it is about time that everyone has skin in the game. If we are truly in such dire straits won´t these Americans who receive goodies from the government want to do their FAIR share. Well, I think it´s time for the takers to be educated on the concept of nothing is ever free and the bill is coming to their door too.

Anybody else notice the similarities between the GOP leadership and a "battered woman?" We see every excuse in the book accepting the abuse dealt out by "the winners." We hear, "they mean well", "my esteemed colleagues across the aisle", McCain and Kerry winking and nudging one another.....Washington is a steaming pile of corruption, and the only thing I can see that our GOP "leaders" oppose in Big Government is that they didn´t win the battle to see who gets to administer it.

Going over the cliff would put 427 billion of revenue into the government coffers in 2013, only 42 billion of it from the Rich. He also will get Obamacare taxes of 24 billion. And he will be forced to make the Sequester cuts.

This wasn´t his plan. He planned to step by step raise the higher brackets while protecting the redistribution brackets. Give it all now and then he needs to make matching cuts. He and the press will blame the GOP no matter what.

The dictator and his minions in the senate and his cheerleader propaganda machine all want the same thing. Our republican leaders don´t want any negative ´publicity´ so they will cave.

The Republicans are now forced to deal with the consequences of allowing Obama to define the terms. Those who own businesses and create jobs have been demonized as "the wealthy" for two years with no pushback from Republicans. No calling out marxist propaganda for what it always has been. So they are now somehow surprised that they have been backed into a corner on it?

Grow up. You can´t win the "tax the rich" argument now because you surrendered on it two years ago, so just hold your breath and take a big bite of the big brown sandwich. But at least make the middle tax tax rates permanent, not just a two year extension. At least get that.

I know. I know. I´ve been arguing for across the board rates. That´s just my anger at Republicans. You won´t get it. He´ll just veto it and make you eat it later.

And why in the world did Boehner NOT show up in front of the cameras frothing at the mouth screaming at anyone who would listen that Obama is pushing for dictatorial powers with unlimited power to raise the debt limit? The Republicans should have been tag teaming this non stop for the cameras 24 hours a day. You can´t control the narrative unless you CONTROL the narrative. Anyone who thinks this was just an over the top throw away negotiating chip has not been paying attention.

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The slow and awkward decay of the powerful aura of Tiger Woods continued here Tuesday on a rain-soaked golfing cathedral that smelled like a damp towel. For the first time in 20 years, Woods will not be here for the Masters, a tournament he has won four times, his virtual ownership of Augusta National symbolizing his decades of dominance.

IN A major development in the search for MH370, Angus Houston has confirmed the Ocean Shield has detected signals consistent with aircraft black boxes, describing the lead as the most promising yet. Air Chief Marshal Houston called the development significant, saying “this is the most promising lead, probably in the search so far, it’s probably the best information we’ve had”. The search coordinator told reporters more signals have been detected by a towed pinger locator deployed by the Australian vessel Ocean Shield. “Today, I can report some very encouraging information which has unfolded over the last 24 hours,” he told

THE missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 may have flown around Indonesian airspace on the night it disappeared, in what may have been a deliberate attempt to avoid radar detection. CNN reported a senior Malaysian government source saying that the missing jet made the detour after it had left the range of Malaysian military radar. The latest details emerged as new satellite calculations put the likely location of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in the same spot where Chinese patrol vessel Haixun 01 detected sounds coming from about 4,500m underwater on two consecutive days.

Thanks to Samsung, the White House may be saying sayonara to the selfie.

Ortiz took the selfie with Obama Tuesday during the team’s visit to the White House. The pic appeared spontaneous at the moment, but it was revealed a day later that the act, taken with Ortiz’s Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone, was actually a public relations stunt orchestrated by the Korean telecom conglomerate. “Maybe this will be the end of all

An eye-catching A.P. story, published Thursday, revealed that, in 2010, the United States Agency for International Development (U.S.A.I.D.) covertly deployed a social-media program in Cuba in the hope of bringing about a Cuban Spring. The network, called ZunZuneo, was offered to Cubans via the country’s mobile-phone network as a free text service, and attracted forty thousand subscribers before mysteriously ending operations in 2012. The contractors who ran the program are said to have concealed its U.S.-government origins via an offshore system of front companies and foreign servers, and to have collected data on subscribers’ “political tendencies” and “receptiveness,” among other

WASHINGTON — The toxic partisanship that’s paralyzed most Washington lawmaking for years often spared congressional consideration of intelligence matters. Not this time. Not when the topic is the CIA’s use of enhanced interrogation techniques _ widely regarded as torture _ against detainees who were suspected terrorists.(Snip) Republicans saw the report as largely an indictment of a Bush-era policy, he said, and because the program is now defunct, it became easier to make political points.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
