Boehner: ‘We’re willing to accept new revenue’

It’s a long, torturous road from word to deed, but this could be huge …

“Republicans are “willing to accept new revenue” to tame the soaring national debt and avert an ugly battle over the approaching “fiscal cliff,” House Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday in a speech that offered a potential path to compromise in year-end budget negotiations.

With President Obama reelected and Republicans returned to a slightly smaller majority in the House, Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday’s election amounted to a plea from voters for the parties to lay down their weapons of the past two years and “do what’s best for our country.”

“That is the will of the people. And we answer to them,” Boehner said, according to advance excerpts of a speech he planned to deliver at an afternoon news conference at the Capitol. “For purposes of forging a bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem, we’re willing to accept new revenue, under the right conditions.”

We’ll see what Eric Cantor, Tom Price and Paul Ryan, among other GOP House members, have to say about this. Boehner also repeated his opposition to raising revenue by increasing tax rates, suggesting that he would accept doing so by altering the tax code. But the ice might be breaking.

New revenue will not tame the “soaring debt” Jay. Maybe a little curb on the spending like we all have to do in our own households?

It’s kind of that whole Plan A plan B thing.

Plan A. Block every attempt by the President to improve the economy in the hopes of making him a one term POTUS.

Plan B. If Plan A fails, work with the President so that the GOP is not locked out of the Whitehouse until 2024. :)

From Eric Cantor:

“I’d like to congratulate President Obama on his re-election. Congratulations are also due to House Republicans who were sent back to Washington with a strong majority. We now know the results of the election, but what are the results for the American people?

“I hope President Obama responds to this election by making an effort to work with Republicans. There is no mandate for raising tax rates on the American people. There is a mandate for avoiding the fiscal cliff and finding real solutions so we can make life work for people again.

“Higher tax rates won’t create jobs and they won’t solve our spending crisis. Massive defense cuts won’t make us safer and won’t support our troops. Ingnoring the problems of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid won’t help people get better health care or prepare for a secure retirement. The fiscal cliff is looming, and we must provide real solutions, or face dire consequences.

“Small business owners want results, in the name of substantive tax reform and a smarter regulatory environment. Families want results, in the name of a less intrusive government, better schools and more take home pay. Delivering results will boost people’s confidence in Washington and restore the promise of a brighter economic future.

“I stand with Speaker Boehner when he says ‘let’s rise above the dysfunction, and do the right thing together for our country.’ We will work together, and with our Republican majority, to create opportunity for families, to give those in need a fair shot and to take smart steps toward a stronger American economy. Economic growth, entitlement reform and solving our spending crisis are our top priorities, and I look forward to working with President Obama to meet these challenges.”

I have great compromise:

We should eliminate all special tax breaks and lower the rates. We should replace payroll tax with a national sales tax.

1) The above would eliminate special interest tax breaks which favor big business over small business ie job creators.
2) The payroll tax idea would increase jobs via reinvestment by business on the savings and use foreign tourist and as well business expenses to help pay for entitlements.
3) It would simplify taxes saving consumers opening about more spending on consumption ie more jobs
4) It would promote start-up business via the lower tax rate and even playing field with big business

We need revenue right now, NOT decreased spending. Decreased spending has kept the pain of the Bush recession going. Tax the 1% who avoid paying taxes, and continue the tax breaks for the middle class. More households who have money in their pockets to spend makes everyone richer–their spending means revenue for businesses, who then have to hire workers, who then have more money in their pockets to spend. Businesses do NOT need more tax breaks. Middle class people do.

Boehner had best seek out the Democrats and Republicans in the House that are willing to compromise and include a tax hike for the wealthiest in their deficit cutting negotiations. And in the spirit of compromise, the Republicans can even have their cuts in unemployment benefits now to help pay for those tax hikes. No more 99 weeks of benefits.

Boehner wants to be re-elected to the position of Speaker of the House.
He also realizes the handwriteing is on the wall, since, before today, he would have died and gone to hell before saying “we’re willing to accept new revenue”.

It’s going to be up to the Republican House whether to stick to the old, losing ways or face up to the political facts of life and begin moving the Party away from the extreme right.

I’m guessing it’s going to be an ugly free for all between Republicans who want the Party to have a real chance in 2016 and diehard fundamentalist Tea Party members who will never compromise.

I hope that Speaker Boehner is sincere in his pledge to find ways to get past the divide on finding common ground to move the country forward. His comments last night did not give me much hope, but this change from last evening leaves a glimmer of hope. Regardless, the President needs to get specific on his proposals if the Republican House won’t budge on compromise; the President and the Senate need to find a budget bill to attach the new proposal to and send it back to the House for an up or down vote or to send it to conference committee. I am for a ‘Grand Bargain’ rather than a stop gap due to the fact that in six months, the partisans will be plotting the next election cycle. The deal needs to be made soon and it needs to be big and broad. Just my two cents.

…………Isn’t revenue derived from sales taxes notoriously volatile and subject to large year-to-year fluctuations?…..

A very good question! That is one of the reasons that I would not have it as a high percentage of gross sales and use a hybrid concept with a lower income tax. Also income tax and payroll tax have the same issue when wages grow less than inflation and or we are facing an high unemployment rate ie the last few years……… It we have 2 sources over 1 source we should have less volatile behavior. Finally the plan focuses on job creation and increasing consumption, which in general should help drive up wages up, that would create more revenue.

Unless Rep. Boehner can work a miracle, he’s blowing smoke up the collective asses of Americans all over.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/wp/2012/11/01/grover-norquist-even-if-obama-is-reelected-taxes-arent-going-up/

Grover Norquist is the president for Americans for Tax Reform. He’s led the conservative push against accepting any tax increases whatsoever, convincing the vast majority of Congressional Republicans — and current candidates for office — to sign his anti-tax pledge. We talked on Wednesday afternoon about his goals and predictions for what will happen right after the election as Congress deals with the fiscal cliff. Here is a transcript of our conversation, lightly edited for length and clarity….

SK (Suzy Khimm): So you don’t see any of the Bush tax cuts expiring for any income group, regardless of who’s elected?

GN: No, because Republicans will oppose allowing any tax cuts to expire or not be restored after Jan 1. Dems will fear economic slowdown from tax cuts…just as they did two years ago.

Sir Grover has spoken, and from the sound of it, Boehner didn’t meet with his policy advisor before making that speech. Grover will be mad, and Republicans fear an angry Grover.

GOOD FIGHT

Not at all…Thulsa has his own point of relation to this question and knows exactly what comes from race-mongering and “papers, please…” at a much more recent outplay of genocide..

Oh, well. 4 more years of the worst President we ever had. I guess Jefferson’s prediction has finally come to fruition when he said (paraphrasing) that Democracy will work fine until the electorate realize that they can vote themselves other people’s money. So I guess Obama and all his supporters will have a nice party until the whole country falls down like a house of cards. In 40 years, this country will be unrecognizable. To be honest, today’s America is so different from the way things were 50 years ago, that it is pitiful. In the 50s and 60s, we were actually a solid country with a stable financial situation, a strong defense and a stable society with decent moral standards. I really think the horse is out of the barn now. It might be too late.

Cantor talks just like the Mullahs in Iran. You are cornered and the people have spoken.

Hey Ad, dumping $5 trillion into the economy should increase the stock market. But like any bubble it will crash.

“Grover Norquist LOST the election for the Republicans”

I’m beginning to get amused at the reluctance some people seem to have for blaming the man at the top for Romney’s defeat. Romney is to blame. Not Paul Ryan and not Grover Norquist. Romney.
