    In other words, don't go along with the Republicans who've spent their entire lives as “public servants” and get silenced.

    Read the articles @

    Huelskamp Rallies House Republicans to Reaffirm Anti-Tax Pledge

    Then

    Boehner, GOP Leaders Purge Conservatives from Powerful Committees UPDATE: Boehner Scoffs


    And finally, Mister Speaker plays like he's a tough guy [but we all know he's gonna cave when he gets and under-the-table offer from the White House]

    Exclusive - Boehner: 'Unreasonable' White House Passing up 'Middle Ground Offer'

    Doncha love it. The next four years are certainly gonna be interesting.

    :cool:

    Taxes are going to go up. We are either going to strike a deal or go over the cliff. It's better for America if we strike a deal.

    Y'all keep on voting Republican though, because they're the conservative party, m'kay?

    Boehner may be a washington-insider/career politician but he knows who butters his bread :)

    So it's better that taxes rise by $500 billion and defense spending cut by $50 billion next year with no progress on spending?

    Got it.
