Remember when Weeper Boehner said tax rates wouldn’t go up on anyone? Looks like that went up in one of Boehner’s cigarette’s smoke. I’m against tax hikes period, but ‘only’ raising tax rates on those ‘evil’ millionaires would be hard for the squishy RINOs in both the House and Senate to resist. Being that Obama is so adamant on raising taxes on those ‘evil rich people’ who dare make more than $200,000, I’m not sure he goes for this anyway.
Speaker John Boehner has proposed allowing tax rates to rise for the wealthiest Americans if President Barack Obama agrees to major entitlement cuts, according to several sources close to the talks.
It is the first time Boehner has offered any boost in marginal tax rates for any income group, and it would represent a major concession for the Ohio Republican. Boehner suggested hiking the Bush-era tax rates for top wage earners, including those with annual incomes of $1 million or more annually, beginning Jan. 1, two sources said.
