In a warning to President Obama, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday night that the reelection of the House Republican majority means that there is “no mandate for raising tax rates” on the American people.

Boehner delivered brief remarks to a subdued crowd of Republicans in Washington who watched as Obama won key early states on the road to a possible reelection victory Tuesday.

While the Speaker has in recent days predicted a victory for Republican nominee Mitt Romney, he made no such declaration shortly before 10 p.m. on Tuesday, after the House was projected to stay in GOP hands.

“I want to thank Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, who have carried the banner of our party with <u>grace</u>, vision, strength and <u>dignity</u>,” Boehner said to cheers from the crowd. </div></div>

Grace and dignity! I think not.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Boehner described the House GOP majority over the last two years as “the primary line of defense” against a government that “spends too much, taxes too much and certainly borrows too much.”

“The American people want solutions — and tonight, they've responded <u>by renewing our House Republican majority</u>,” Boehner said.<u> “With this vote, the American people have also made clear that there is no mandate for raising tax rates.” </u>

The Speaker made no mention of Obama in his remarks, which lasted just about three minutes. </div></div>

Once again the GOP goes into denial and refuses to accept the reality. ie,<span style='font-size: 14pt'> THEY LOST!</span>
The reality is Obama is NOT going to raise the tax rates but the rates will go up if the GOP doesn't do a deal. <span style='font-size: 14pt'><u>They</u> will be the ones raising taxes on the middle class.</span>

They never learn!

They are already so far away from the majority of this country, and they STILL don't get it!

If Repigs don't stop obstructing, 2016 will be a cynch for Dems!

LOL, both Mitt, and the Repigs, tied the knot around their own throats!

Think I predicted Mitt Romney would hang himself with his own stupid words and gaffs, and he did that for sure!

The Crazies, lost! Or, as you call them, the inmates, lol. the corrupt multi-billionaires might just as well have burned all that money in their fire pits, lol!

As for Boehner, I never believe a damn thing that comes out of his mouth, nor any other Repiglican!

Eat your heart out, Karl Rove, you stupid Crook!

I believe the Republican Party is imploding, and the country has moved to the left.

Repubs will lose their majority in the House, in the midterms.

McConnell, is going to lose his seat.

Cantor will lose his seat.

The Tea Party idiots, will continue to lose their seats.

The Tea Party has croaked.

Koch Brothers and Adelson have thrown away millions of dollars.

Nobody is going to be rushing to give Karl Rove millions of dollars next time.

Corporations will think twice before they pony up more millions, financing a bunch of idiots, with tea bags hanging off their hats.

Organized religion will face more public demand to remove their tax exemptions.

Liberal leaning women are going to play a far greater role in the political arena, already happening.

The Pledge signers are going to end up looking like the fools.

Norquist and Rove are going down.

Murdoch is going to be caught again, but this time, here in America.

Things are going swimmingly, and I say Bravo! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

We need to focus on the pigs, for now, friend.
We can't save the polar bears, until we get rid of the pigs.

I know that the left likes to say the Reps block everything and say the Reps will not approve anything unless there are tax breaks for the rich but at the same time you ignore the fact that the Dems take the exact same hard lined approach when requiring tax cuts. The hard-lined stance has been taken by both sides and no one in DC works with the other party until they get their own "demands" met. It has been this way for quite some time and it does suck.

They spent much of the evening listening to country music and watching muted television screens broadcasting election returns, most of which were tuned to Fox News.

I agree.

Not true. The stimulus bill was one third tax cuts for people and businesses.
Obama compromised and extended the Bush tax cuts -for all- for another year.
Right now he has already agreed to extend the Bush tax cuts for 98% of the people.
The truth is that ALL that matters to the GOP is keeping the tax breaks for the rich.

Obama the big spender?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">

Mitt Romney claims on his campaign website: "Since President Obama assumed office three years ago, <span style='font-size: 17pt'>federal spending has accelerated at a pace without precedent in recent history</span>."</div></div>

True or False?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> The truth is, the President's supposed "spending binge" is nothing but a myth, repeatedly debunked by independent fact checkers. Federal spending growth has actually been slower under President Obama than under any other president since Dwight Eisenhower.

President Obama has a plan to reduce the deficit by over $4 trillion, cutting federal spending while still making critical investments in education, innovation, infrastructure, and clean energy. It's a balanced and responsible approach to creating an economy built to last.


Get informed.

Interesting, isn't it, that some people when proven wrong, say they were right? And apparently, there is only one person on here who's posts, no one else can effectively read, LMAO!

Here's an interesting look back at some of our RW economic geniuses, /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif
