House Speaker John Boehner today rejected a proposal from former NRCC head Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) to extend existing tax cuts for middle class Americans, primarily because Boehner (and other wealthy Americans whose incomes have been going up while everyone else’s has been going down) doesn’t get a piece of the tax cut action.
Says the Orange Crybaby: “We’re not going to grow the economy if we raise tax rates on the top two rates.”
Keep in mind, these tax cuts will expire regardless of what Boehner does, so what he actually means is “We’re not going to allow the economy to grow if it means us rich guys have to pay more. We gonna drag all you inferior son of a bitches down with us!”
And so Agent Orange begins his scorched earth campaign, holding several hundred million Americans hostage to his terrorist demands.
