    Today, he stated "The Speaker’s “Plan B” approach doesn't meet this test because it can’t pass the Senate and therefore will not protect middle class families..."

    So let's get this straight. The Speaker's plan, which keeps current rates in place for everyone up to millionaires, doesn't pass the test...because Senate Democrats won't pass it for political reasons, thereby failing to protect the middle class.

    And he said this with a straight face! The guy deserves a raise.

    The Speakers plan protects people over $250K...

    Carney laughs behind the backs of Americans. Democrats will believe anything.

    I think you are laboring under the assumption that the biggest obstacle to passing an agreement is democrats.

    It's 4 times what the President proposed initially and 2 times what his counter offer was..so yeah..it's not going to pass the senate. And even if it does? It faces a veto.

    It's a bullshit bill.

    He deserves more than a raise. He basically with a straight face just told the nation that the Obama plan is the only plan. He managed to tell the hostages that the negotiator isn't negotiating, and that it's the mediators fault.

    That's fucking brilliant. I hope the CIA picks this guy up for high profile hostage situations.

    It would take Boehner five minutes to write a bill extending the Bush tax cuts for the lower 98 percent. He would not even have to do anything more than that. It would automatically allow the top two percent's tax cut to expire. The brackets are already there, no fiddling with them is necessary like with this Plan B bullshit.

    Boehner's just being a dick. As usual.

    And before anyone gets stupid and says Boehner should not give a tax hike to Obama without spending cuts, Plan B does not have any spending cuts in it. This is strictly a tax hike on people earning more than a million dollars.

    There's no "hostages".

    The President won the election.

    Both parties voted for sequester by the way.

    It echoes Pelosi's plan?
    I guess there is only one way this is going to happen. Obama's way. I hope fuckers make him own it (that will never happen).

    You're way to dull for that analogy.
