Standing against big government and for the people!
The Boehner plan, Reid argued, did not qualify as anything more than a "big wet kiss" to the Tea Party - and he pledged that "every Democratic senator will vote against" it.
"It's too bad his caucus is being run by such a small number of people," Reid said, of Boehner. "[House Republicans] are struggling to save a Tea Party bill... The way to resolve this crisis is to ignore the extremists and meet in the middle of the road."
Leaders from both parties continued on Wednesday to push for their own plan while lambasting the other. Neither House Speaker John Boehner's Republican proposal nor Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's Democratic plan, however, appears to have the necessary votes to pass through Congress.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Reid argued that the Democratic plan was the only "true compromise" on the table, and urged lawmakers to rally around it.
"We're running out of time," he told reporters. "It's time to get serious about finding a compromise."

Meanwhile, it appears Boehner's Plan may be approved, although word is it still will not pass the Senate. Reid said today that it's OK, he can take their plan and make his changes. So, just like summer of 2009, they treated us the same way as we were fighting against socialized Obamacare. We were really mad and we went out and let them know how we felt. We were instrumental in a lot of their provisions being thrown out of the bill.
We need to get engaged and stay engaged.
Remember to Tweet Boehner and tell him and your congressmen how you feel! Call! Do not let up!
How Dare All of Them!
Do you all see this situation as a small group of men to whom 'we the people' have signed over a 'power of attorney' that enables them to incur debt in our name? We did this before we were born! We did this when the communists, already influencing career polititions in 1913, were successful in passing and implementing the 16th Ammendment. Prior to 1913 there WAS NO INCOME TAX because it was specified in the Constitution that INCOME COULD NOT BE TAXED. We were NOT SLAVES to career polititions. Now we are. I propose that we repeal the 16th and 17 ammendments. I propose that we finally END SLAVERY. With Patriot Love, Ursula
Obama's August date was set the same way the old slight of hand con men operated when they said "Pick a card, any card".
He said "Pick a date, any date". Another great lie backed up by his Slithy Tove, Geithner.
I wish the SLL* in the white house and all his muslim and lying buddies " did gyre and gimble in the wabe" instead of ruining our country. (apologies to Lewis Carroll)

Bill Cristol and some in the Wall Stree Journal editorial board have taken to attacking those in the tea party for daring to question the Boehner plans calling them "Hobbitts that need to go back to middle earth".
Despite significant tea party vcstories last fall these RINOs are stung by the rejection of their backroom deals by Conservative groups and have taken to attacking such Conservative groups like Club for Growth and the Heritage Foundation for daring to opposing the boehner deals.
The fact that Bill Cristol loved Tarp and both Cristol and the Wall Street Journal are for open borders is a testament to how the Conservatives have rattled the RINOs.
Quoting one of these articles John Mc Cain lashes out at the tea party.
At the same time John Boehner was reported trying to strong arm Republican Study Committee and Tea Party Conservative Jim Jordan for not supporting his ever changing deals because Jim Jordan supports real reform like Cut Cap Balance.
If his plans are so great why doesn't Boehner try to strong arm Obama instead of Tea Party Conservatives?

This professional liar has no place in the Congress of USA. He is an Obama shill which ties him to the Soros's destruction
team. I grow wearier and more aggressively vigilant almost to the point of violent rebellion. According to what Congress accomplishes today, I may or may NOT file income tax in the future.
