Boehner’s Tax Bungle

13 Sep

It’s common knowledge that the best the GOP and its de facto leader John Boehner are ideologically bankrupt and bereft of ideas. The best they can do is gainsay anything the President proposes. He naturally vehemently opposed the restructuring of the tax cuts (of course he did – they would have affected his constituents and paymasters – the rich). Now the orange-faced one has buckled.

While much of the weekend was devoted to remembrances–political or not–of the 9/11 attacks, House Minority Leader John Boehner made headlines for a policy statement. Speaking to Bob Schieffer of CBS, he said that while he thought tax cuts instituted by President George W. Bush should be extended for all Americans, he would support a package that extended them only for people earning less than $250,000.

I guess he was against it before he was for it …
