Boehner holds the cards in these negotiations.  The Senate voted to raise tax rates on the wealthiest Americans, but the House didn't.


It's been clear since Boehner took over as Speaker in 2011, that he can't control his own caucus.  He made a "grand bargain" with the President last year, only to have his own caucus reject it.  He continually caters to the far  Read More...


This "fiscal cliff" was manufactured by Republicans and their obstructing raising the debt ceiling, even though they raised it 7 times when Bush was in the WH with no threat of a government shutdown.


Republicans set the date that the Bush tax cuts would end.  President Obama extended that date for two years, but he has said he wouldn't do it again.  Republicans have known for 2 yrs when those Bush tax cuts would end.  They have been unwilling to compromise on anything with the WH.


When we go over the fiscal cliff,  Republicans will be blamed.  The Speaker must decide if he is more concerned about his far right base or about Americans that make less than 250k a year.  The answer seems obvious.

The sound of a desperate man crying for help.

Not sure when it will finally dawn on this guy that he and the Repubs have no choice but to cave.

When you lose, you are in no position to bargain. It's time for this rich protectism to stop.

Boehner appealed to a very small cross section of America. Obama is only one in office that was elected by the entire US.
