Washington - House Speaker John Boehner says higher taxes won’t be part of any deal to solve the country’s budget mess.

Boehner emerged from a White House meeting with President Barack Obama and said there was nothing new to report on staving off $85 billion in spending cuts that are set to start kicking in Friday.

Boehner says the House will move ahead next week with legislation to keep the government running beyond March, and he hopes the country won’t have to deal with the threat of a government shutdown.

Of course no closing of tax loop holes or taxing hedge fond managers as reasonably as workers on the assembly line of GM, Ford and
Chrysler. Must protect the donors of the next election and the country can go to h'll or the invisible stealing hand will adjust the market and deficits don't matter former Republican mantra

Same old, same old. How does this guy not get tired of saying the same thing over and over again, instead of looking for a way forward?

He may as well go home and leave an iPod playing in DC with the same sound bites we've been hearing for decades.

He is saying the same malarkey by virtue of having been elected by the tae baggies and is milking the tax payer as much he can

Have you been folowing the news?
Let's be clear, Republicans are pushing to get rid of tax loopholes. They want to do it in a responsible way, they want a comprehensive rewriting of the tax code - one that will make the tax code simpler and one that will get rid of those loopholes.

Obama however, is not interested in helping, good, middle class Americans like you. He is not interested in making the tax code simple because his agenda is a Big government, Not you.

You mean Obama and his democratic allies, dont you?

Want the cold hard truth? The only thing democrats care about are themselves and big big government. The more taxes you give them, the more they demand, from YOU.

Uhhh...right. Keep parroting Rush's and Levin's ridiculous lies. Obama is only interested in so-called "Big Government" - why? Is he a shareholder? Will "Big Government" pay him dividends in retirement? Get real...we don't need Big government or Small government - we need government that works and looks out for all citizens. If it needs to be bigger to do that effectively - fine, if it needs to be smaller - fine. I don't really care one way or another and neither does Obama.

"Want the cold hard truth?"

And, you are the repository of 'cold hard truth'- right? Or, is it as simple as you hating the President in your own psychopathic way (and we all know why)?
