The Huffington Post has a story “John Boehner Fiscal Cliff Proposal Opposed By Powerful Conservative Groups.”
“WASHINGTON — Two of the most powerful and politically active conservative groups in Washington are not pleased with the fiscal cliff proposal put forward by Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday.
Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks stated their disappointment and opposition to the proposal put forward by Boehner as a counter to President Barack Obama’s offer because it contains $800 billion in new tax revenue and not enough spending reductions…”
John Boehner, it looks like, is trying to get a deal done.
Republicans are fighting with each other and blaming each other.
John Boehner is the leader of the House Republicans and he has to try and control that crazy stupid mob. Not an easy job for him.
It will be interesting to see what happens.
