John Boehner just doesn’t have the answer!

Watch as Republican Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) avoids answering how Congressional Republicans can support cutting the deficit while also supporting extending the Bush tax cuts, which will only add to the federal budget deficit:

I’d love to hear someone explain how exactly extending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy won’t add to the federal budget deficit, thus flying in the face of the argument that Congressional Republicans are really the fiscal hawks they want voters to believe they are.

  1. It’s already been explained time and time again, but here you go, one more time:

    “Tax reduction thus sets off a process that can bring gains for everyone, gains won by marshalling resources that would otherwise stand idle—workers without jobs and farm and factory capacity without markets. Yet many taxpayers seemed prepared to deny the nation the fruits of tax reduction because they question the financial soundness of reducing taxes when the federal budget is already in deficit. Let me make clear why, in today’s economy, fiscal prudence and responsibility call for tax reduction even if it temporarily enlarged the federal deficit—why reducing taxes is the best way open to us to increase revenues.”

  2. Ahhh hello? I would like to hear the Dems explain how extending the Bush tax cuts to the NOT wealthy (by their standards) won’t add to the federal deficit. The “wealthy” are the job creators. And once and for all, $250K per year small business who files as S corp is not exactly wealthy.

    I have some friends who have worked their butts off and are by no means “wealthy”, but would fall into Obama’s category as such. They more than deserve what they have EARNED in life. Ooops, I forgot, Obama wants to redistribute. It matters not that my friends (with two kids) are the ones who sacrificed to get where they are. Obama has “deemed” them “wealthy” hence to take from them to give to someone else that HE decides should simply have it. Don’t forget Alinsky and his “this book is written for the have nots to learn how to TAKE from the haves”. I call that stealing.
