    Coup Brewing Against Boehner?

    Wall Street will never forgive his lack of leadership.

    The House passed the extension on Bush tax cuts in August.


    Reid did nothing. Reid on the clock.

    Fuck an extension on the insane Bush tax cuts for anyone. In a sane world taxes would never have been cut at a time when we had wars going on.

    Go back to the tax rate during the Clinton years. Add on the Buffet rule, and apply it to all income from whatever source.

    You aren't aware that the tax cuts created new records in Federal tax receipts - just as they were designed to do - and the same thing happened in the other times they occurred under Harding, JFK and Reagan?

    Or perhaps you would like to read up on how it worked for Gladstone over 100 years ago?

    The power brokers on Wall Street, investors like myself, can not tolerate this level of incompetence.

    He's finished.

    This is exactly what the pubpots have been saying they want - forced austerity. They want the US to be Greece. And, they want to be able to blame the Ds.

    Boehner is a complete failure. The "plan b" was a disaster and the inexperienced and ideological potters are running the GObP.

    By now, those who wanted to believe in THE Tea Party are realizing they made a big mistake in voting for little people who have been given big control by big money. The Kochs turned The Tea Party into the teapotters and the result is that nothing is getting done.

    Some of the worst potters got their walking papers with the last election but I doubt they'll vote Boehner out. I can't imagine a worse choice than Cantor or Ryan and I would think one of them would be the alternative to Boehner.

    Oh for the days of intelligent and authoritative Pelosi. She ran rings around that bunch and got some very important decisions made.

    Yet you not only tolerate but happily cheer the tremendous level of rank incompetence coming out of 1600 Pennsylvania.

    Methinks your intolerance for ineptitude is limited to only those who don't have that (D) by their name.
