Welcome To 2013 Party While You Can ~ The Real Fiscal Cliff is on it’s way

Another great post over at the Lone Star Tea Party….  It was the photo that caught my attention. We will look back and say remember the good old days….. 

Fiscal Cliff ~ Welcome to 2013


“What we do know about 2013 is, Obama will continue to fundamentally change this country into God knows what and lead us into financial collapse while republicans standby and watch.  

From  @nittigrittytax

“Progressives in both parties passed the Senate Bill to avert the so called fiscal cliff and kick the can down the road again. What a dramatic show it was. Many republicans held their votes until they were sure it would pass then voted no to cover their butts back home. You aint foolin us, we watched as the votes were coming in and we talked about it in the final minutes of last nights Chaos Radio Show. 

In the coming days, you’re sure to read about how Vice President Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell valiantly worked through the night on New Year’s Eve to save 98% of Americans from impending tax increases and “avert the fiscal cliff.” Understand, however, that this deal accomplished only the former. The fiscal cliff has not been averted; it has merely been postponed. In fact, in an almost miraculous measure of negligence, this particular deal will force Congress to take up debate on fiscal cliff issues again in a mere two months.” 


Congress approves ‘fiscal cliff’ measure

The bill [in the House] drew 85 votes from Republicans and 172 from Democrats, meaning well more than half of its support came from the Democratic minority…151 House Republicans voted “no”; 89 to 8 Senators voted for it. 

Congress approved a plan to end Washington’s long drama over the “fiscal cliff” late Tuesday after House Republicans surrendered to President Obama’s demand to let taxes rise on the nation’s richest households.

The House voted 257 to 167 to send the measure to Obama for his signature; the vote came less than 24 hours after the Senate overwhelmingly approved the legislation.

With end of payroll tax holiday, 2013 bill will rise regardless of “fiscal cliff” resolution.

House Speaker John A. Boehner (Ohio) and most other top GOP leaders took no public position on the measure and offered no public comment before the 10:45 p.m. vote. Boehner declined even to deliver his usual closing argument, leaving House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) to defend the measure as the “largest tax cut in American history.”

The bill will indeed shield millions of middle-class taxpayers from tax increases set to take effect this month. But it also will let rates rise on wages and investment profits for households pulling in more than $450,000 a year, marking the first time in more than two decades that a broad tax increase has been approved with GOP support. 

As a final note from Mel Moss over at the Lone Star Tea Party 

Now for us Texans the big question is? Just what is the state legislature going to do to protect us from this out of control overspending over regulating federal government of king Obama?

Right now legislators are in planning sessions for the upcoming session, planning for what?

We all know the big obstacle in the road for conservative legislation is Joe Straus, corruption and collusion is the game of the state house elite. It’s a mini version of DC complete with committee threats and assignments for votes for Straus.

There is no one riding in on a white horse to save us, we have to step up and do this ourselves with great public pressure.

Call or write your legislator “no on Straus”, what steps are they taking to protect us from the out of control feds?
