Boehner’s biggest boner

WASHINGTON, DC - AUGUST 01:  U.S. Speaker of t...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeSpeaker of the house John Boehner may have just made the biggest political boner of all times. He and his tea party counterparts have seriously underestimate the disdain the American people have for congress. Does he not recognize the approval rating for congress is 11%.

He and his party voting to increase taxes on a 160,000,000 Americans is just political suicide.  Their refusal to pass the payroll tax cut citing they want a year’s extension not the two months contained in the Senate bill is plain and simple B.S. That spin will not be bought by the independent voters, which both parties desperately need to win the November elections.

The evidence is clear. The congress sent a payroll extension bill up to the senate, which contained nine poison pills designed specifically to make the senate reject it.  Here is a partial list of these poison pills:

If passed the State Department would have been prevented  from finishing its review of the Canada-to-Texas Keystone pipeline, and mandate its construction.

If passed the bill would let individual states bar people from collecting unemployment benefits unless they submit to drug testing.

The bill would strip the EPA of authority to regulate incinerators and boilers.

The bill removes $8 billion from the health care act.

89 Senators(including 80 % of the Republican senators) rejected the House plan and sent back a two months extension which Mr. Boehner’s tea party (read Eric Cantor) promptly rejected. In fact would not even let the Senate bill come to a vote. So Mr Boehner, or should I make this statement to Mr. Cantor as he seems to be the one in charge, we the people are not buying what you are selling.
