Boehner and Obama Meet in “Secret,” How High Will They Raise Taxes?

At least one member of the Senate is raising a red flag over the “fiscal cliff” negotiations.

Apparently, the Senate is not included in the goings-on (on the whole probably not a bad thing) and Senator Sessions has a problem with this.

He predicts that the “solution” to the cliff will be presented on Christmas or New Years Eve. I’ll bet he’s right. That’s what they did with the Federal Reserve Act in 1913, and the NDAA on New Years Day of this year. Everyone is busy with their lives and when they come to after their holiday induced stupor whatever the politicians wanted to do is a fait accompli. Then we just suck it up and go with it.

(From The Weekly Standard)

Sessions, the highest Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, saved most of his criticism for the president. “President Obama campaigned on a tax increase of ‘only’ $800 billion,” said Sessions. “But now the White House is demanding $1.6 trillion in new taxes. Don’t the American people have a right to see these taxes and where they will fall? Shouldn’t the President of the United States, the only person who represents everybody in the country, lay out his plan, or must that remain a secret too? Will it just be revealed to us on the eve of Christmas or eve of the new calendar year? We will be asked to vote for it, to ratify it like lemmings, I suppose.”

How many golf matches can "Weepy" get out of this? After all, one MUST keep one's priorities straight. And the House Republicans just re-elected him as Speaker. Only Gohmert had the balls to stand against this filth.
