John Boehner, Mr. Ultimate Establishment Republican, is desperately trying to secure the passage of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for Obama, which would give him fast-track authority to secure congressional approval of at least three secretive trade deals without the public having a right to know what the hell is going on. Why is Boehner so willing to violate the Constitution and surrender what remains of some Democratic/Republican process? There must be something behind the curtail deal for him and his family somewhere.
The Democrats shot Obama’s dictatorial trade deal down and Boehner is aligning himself with Obama. This is really strange. Boehner is now secretly supporting an increase in taxes on small businesses. Boehner is destroying the Republican Party for he is simply Mr. Washington. Perhaps this deal is the straw that breaks the camel’s back and splits the Republican Party.
Unfortunately, we should expect taxes to rise sharply over the next four years. The government budget will fail and as interest rates will rise, so will the deficit. Their solution is ALWAYS to raise taxes – never reform.
