Apparently, the saying is true White men can’t jump. Rather than calling the president’s bluff concerning going over the fiscal cliff the GOP let it be known that they prefer not to jump. However what they also revealed is they cannot negotiate or deal with Liberal Progressive Democrats either.
Senate minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House John Boehner are go-along-to get-along (GATGA) elected Republican representatives. In other words, as it has been for years, there is a certain self-hating element in the Republican Party that agrees more with Liberal Democrats than they agree with Conservative Republicans and Conservative Americans.
The above description is hardly the worst I can say about Misters McConnell and Boehner but I’ll just let actions speak for these two political Neanderthals and you decide if I’m correct in my assessments.
In 2008, Conservative Americans sent Representatives to the Congressional House to stop Obamatax, government run-away spending and higher taxes. What the Washington establishment did, through the establishment Republicans or as I have named them the GATGA Republicans, was immediately dub the people’s Conservative Representatives “Tea Party” Representatives in a move to both ostracize and contain the Conservative movement.
However, what is most frustrating is how GATGA Republicans “got played” concerning the “Fiscal Cliff” and “Debt Ceiling” manufactured crisis. Yes that’s correct I said manufactured crisis.
According to the WSJ Republican leadership has signed on to the biggest tax increases in 20 years in return for spending increases, and all spun for political purposes as a "tax cut for the middle class." But taxes on the middle class were only going up on January 1 because the politicians had set it up that way, manufacturing a fake crisis. (see article)
In other words, GATGA Republicans allowed and are complicit in what Liberal Progressive Democrats, the President, the Senate and the Media, falsified as protections for the “middle class” when in actuality they intended all along to raise taxes on everyone. And yes that means taxes are being raised on the middle class in the form of payroll taxes and other surtaxes.
Again, taxes are being raised on everyone while the president will be permitted to keep up the facade that he is fighting for the middle class and that he didn’t increase taxes on this group of taxpayers.
According to Sophie Quinton of the National Journal, The payroll tax cut won’t be extended for another year, meaning that working Americans will see their paychecks reduced in 2013. (see article)
Although Ms. Quinton couched the tax increase on the middle class in “Good News” it is nevertheless a tax increase one which employers are already defending themselves telling employees not to blame them when paychecks are less due to the payroll tax increase that Democrats allowed to expire.
Yes, I can remember the promise that the president made now about Obamatax he said not one cent of your taxes would be raised if it were passed. Well taxes will be raised because of Justice John Roberts' and president Soetoro’s healthcare taxes and these are only the beginning of the vast array of taxes that will be rolled out on the middle class starting in 2013.
Coming soon, Carbon taxes!
