McConnell, Boehner saved
most of the tax cuts

Human Events, by Allan H. Ryskind

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/5/2013 6:04:07 AM

Here’s a question for many conservatives: Whom would you rather have negotiating a business deal for you–Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell or those House Republicans who would have had us sailing over the cliff rather than accept any compromise with the president? Personally, I’d hire the Minority Leader. Since the deal, middle class workers and businessmen have been happier, the stock market has soared, retirement accounts are going up and most of the Bush tax cuts that affect people like me have been preserved. (Snip)Even McConnell’s detractors should concede that he was not dealt the best of hands

We´ve voted in this mess of an economy...I´d just as soon we started paying for it.

If the precious middle-class/working-class is so careless as to take a few minutes out of their reality TV watching to re-elect this bozo, then, yes, let them feel the pinch of starting to pay for it.

The House controls the spending. Without their approval, government shuts own. Boehner was owned. He believed the democrat threats.

Schwab says that investors got the best of this deal, but down the road, someone´s going to have to pay. The problem of course is spending, not a lack of revenue and ways to extract it. That is why The Won´s reelection is truly a tragedy for our country.

Good article. Boehner and McConnell did better than expected. Have some patience and hang in there folks. Things are not all black and white, there are a lot of shades of gray. It´s going to be a long road back for us conservatives and we have to stop fighting each other.

Agree with #4 the GOP managed to establish much of the "Bush" Tax Cuts permanent taking this cudgel away from the mendacious lying libtards who have maintained they only benefited the rich for the last 9 years. Plus the estate tax is set at 35% for most estates(40% for very large ones) with a $5 million exemption for single and $10 million for married couples´ estates. Now, finally, folks can make informed decisions in their estate planning and small business owners, farmers and ranchers can hand down their hard earned estates to their children without selling them to pay off Uncle Sam.

Seems to me they miss the point. I do not mind so much paying more taxes if it helped with debt. It does not. All this does is give Obama and corrupt pols more to give away. Stop saying the gov NEEDS more money. It does not. It NEEDS to cut spending. We give well enough to fund a good government. Unfortunately we are funding a corrupt government that no amount of higher taxes can satisfy. That is the main reason I dislike our leaders..they do not tell the public about the debt and spending and corruption. They enable Obama: Boehner/McConnel just made is possible for Obama to pay more to his supporters not rid us of debt. That is the point. Stop supporting those who are no better than Democrats. We need to cut spending. Not pay more.

Well the problem I have is that Republicans are now on record as agreeing with the Democrats that the "rich" need to be taxed at a much higher rate. When was the last time a "poor" person offered you a job? We need more "rich" not less. The real problem is the continuing spending resolutions that the House passes which results in Trillion dollar deficits and the Senate not having to pass a budget. The tax fix is just a band aid on the real problem. A trillion dollars a year and no one in the House has the guts to turn the spigot off. Any proposed spending cuts are so far out in the future they are meaningless. We´ll see how well McConnell and Boehner handle this spending madness. I doubt much will be done.

Thank you #4.

Nice that some of you don´t mind paying more taxes. Guess those folks making it from paycheck to paycheck can simply suffer???

As for those parroting Rush´s mantra about how the repubs have agreed that the rich need to be taxed more. How about thinking for yourself.

Bush tax cuts were preserved for most of the working people. Obama´s tax cuts are gone!!!!

The country went over the fiscal cliff quite some time ago. The recent deal does little, if anything to change the trajectory of the country´s economy. It is the excess government spending and regulation that´s killing the economy.

I was looking forward to seeing the bottom of the cliff and seeing if we, as a nation, could survive it or would start anew. As it is now, we´ll live with one foot on and one foot over, with no way to pull ourselves back up.

It´s going to be most exciting to see what Boehner and his troops do with the debt ceiling issue. If Barkey makes good on his threat to take over their purse, will they fight back? I´d like to think so but I´m not betting on the House to stand up for the constitution- if they do, it should result in a beginning of a sincere dialogue of impeachment .

"The deficit exists not because the American people are taxed too little but because their government spends too much". Where have you heard that? It is the spending. The real test is if Boehner/McConnell can hold together the caucus against threats of stopping SS checks and Medicare payments that are coming.

I´d prefer to have had us go over the cliff. It is time the rubes see the cost of big government, and Boehner/McConnell once again played Kabuki theatre, then roled over. They then could have passed tax reform, and made zippy and the senate vote against lowering tax rates.

As long as the repubs let zippy and the Dems slow roll the destruction, no one will wake up. We need a viable third party.

How about just for once let´s try NOT compromising. Compromise has landed this country in 17 trillion dollar debt territory, soon to be more.

If they had not bent over for Zero, then maybe when EVERYONE´S taxes went up, the majority would have gotten mad enough to do something about it.

As it stands now, only 2% of the people, minus imbeciles like Warren Buffett, are "mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore". That´s not enough. This was nothing more than another game of kick the can.

Why aren´t Republican leaders fighting tooth and nail to eradicate Title 26 of the United States Code?

Why aren´t Republican leaders fighting tooth and nail to eradicate any spending beyond what balances the Budget?

Why aren´t Republican leaders fighting tooth and nail to eradicate this hideous malformation known as earmarks?

Why aren´t Republican leaders fighting tooth and nail to eradicate pork?

Why aren´t Republican leaders fighting tooth and nail to eradicate Bills which are other than one Law at a time?

The problem with this whole premise by Mr. Ryskind is that he appears to believe that Obama is capable of compromise.
There is no compromise with Obama, and this was evidenced by Obama´s comments immediately after the House vote was taken. He´ll be going after more, and more, and more.
What´s pitiful is that he has four full years in which to do it. If the House falls to the Left in 2014, we are doomed as a country.

A beautiful forested estate of graceful waterways, summer houses and exotic gardens. This is the home of Ukraine´s fugitive president, who was dramatically ousted from power after one of the worst periods of violence in the country´s history. Ukraniains streamed to see Viktor Yanukovich´s luxury estate, which has been closed off to the world for nearly a decade, and rubbed their eyes in disbelief when they were confronted by the scale of the opulence he built around him. The property in Mezhyhirya, an hours drive from Kiev, has a golf course, helicopter pad and is situated in a country where the average salary

One such mistake goes like this: The enemy of my enemy is my friend. A few recent examples… When Donald Trump got into a fight with BuzzFeed (some) conservatives reflexively defended him. They presumably did this because BuzzFeed is viewed as a liberal-leaning outlet — and because Trump is nominally a Republican. But is he worth defending? Trump’s conservative bona fides are highly questionable to begin with, and his impact on the GOP’s prospects are almost

Protesters seized the Kiev office of President Viktor Yanukovich on Saturday and his whereabouts were a mystery, as the pro-Russian leader´s grip on power rapidly eroded following bloodshed in the Ukrainian capital. There were conflicting reports about whether the president planned to resign. At the president´s headquarters, Ostap Kryvdyk, who described himself as a protest commander, said some protesters had entered the offices but there was no looting. "We will guard the building until the next president comes," he told Reuters. "Yanukovich will never be back." The grounds of the president´s residence outside Kiev were also being guarded by "self-defense"

The $150,000-a-year salary of the new executive director of One Fund Boston will be paid out of the charity’s own budget — marking a significant shift from the organization’s beginnings, when every dollar donated went directly to victims’ families and survivors of the marathon bombings. “The mission of the fund has not changed,” said One Fund spokeswoman Dot Joyce. “It continues to grow and with that growth comes some administrative cost. And those decisions were made by the board in consultation with the survivor community and what’s best in meeting their needs going forward.” Joyce could not say how much money is

During a 40-minute hearing, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon repeatedly ripped into the government and DOJ trial counsel David Glass for resisting requests from both sides in the case for government files and e-mails that might be of use in the litigation. At one point, the judge snapped at Glass, ordering him to "sit right down." Sherrod was

Fox News Poll: 66 percent say Congress

The latest Fox News poll finds that most Americans think Congress should continue to investigate the Obama administration’s handling of the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. The attack took place in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 and resulted in the deaths of a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. Sixty-six percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the White House’s handling of Benghazi. That includes 50 percent of Democrats, 68 percent of independents and 83 percent of Republicans. About a third opposes lawmakers continuing to investigate the attack (31 percent).

WASHINGTON — This week, President Barack Obama promoted tougher fuel efficiency standards for trucks. He touted progress on initiatives to strengthen the U.S. patent system. And he signed an executive order intended to speed up the process for approving import or export cargo. Welcome to Obama´s self-proclaimed "year of action," where hardly a day goes by without the president and his top advisers trumpeting policy initiatives the White House is undertaking without the help of Congress. The mostly modest actions — far shy of the sweeping immigration overhaul Obama hoped for this year — put into sharp focus the president´s limitations as

The Assad government may have used chemical weapons again as recently as last month, according to activists pressing the U.S. to investigate the attack. On Jan. 13 in the Syrian city of Daraya, five people were killed and more than 20 injured after being exposed to a mysterious gas. Syrian activists, including some witnesses on the ground, believe that the attack is evidence the Syrian government is still using chemical weapons against its own people—months after that regime pledged to destroy its nerve gas arsenal. A group of survivors of Syrian government atrocities, including chemical weapons attacks verified by U.N. inspectors, visited

In a watershed moment and a huge victory over environmentalists, General Electric has agreed to stop projects that are designed solely for the purpose of carbon dioxide reductions to please those who lobby for climate change concessions. The National Center for Public Policy Research, a non-partisan, free-market, independent conservative think-tank which has been fighting GE for years because of GE’s liberal bias under CEO Jeffrey Immelt, scored a huge victory after receiving the commitment from General Electric. Late in 2013, the National Center submitted a shareholder proposal as part of GE´s 2014 proxy statement and annual meeting materials. The proposal: ...request[ed] that the

The rocker said he was sorry for using “street fighter terminology of subhuman mongrel,’” and admitted "I did cross the line.” Nugent said he should have used a term such as “violator of his oath, the Constitution” instead.

FRESNO, Calif.- Federal officials say many farmers caught in California´s drought will receive no irrigation water this year from a vast system of rivers, canals and reservoirs interlacing the state. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

President Obama’s stimulus may have boosted the economy when it passed in 2009, but it’s now beginning to take a toll and will soon begin to leave the economy worse off than if it had never passed, according to a new report Friday by the Congressional Budget Office. Mr. Obama signed the stimulus into law five years ago this week, vowing it would help rescue the economy from its post-Wall Street collapse tailspin, and saying it would save millions of jobs. The CBO said it’s been successful at that, helping sustain between 700,000 and 3.6 million jobs at its peak
