John Boehner is likely the single most impotent Speaker of the US House this nation has ever known. He can't bring his caucus together to agree that Thursday is Thursday. The Tea Party Problem won't permit a deal, he pulled back on his offer already made, the rush to the Fiscal Cliff continues and the Tea Party legislators, many on their way out, a few just entering, have neutered Boehner.
Fidelity.com tells us, "Without congressional action, up to $600 billion of expiring tax cuts, new taxes, and automatic spending cuts are set to take effect at the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013. If they hit all at once, the impact could amount to as much as 4%-5% of GDP, according to our research, the equivalent of falling off a “fiscal cliff.” Some experts anticipate the economy would experience a significant slowdown and there would be major consequences for financial markets."
The Tea Party is the equivalent of the Peoples' Temple of Jonestown fame,a cult, and Ron Paul is the Rev. Jim Jones encouraging fools to drink the tea flavored kool aid. Ron Paul is chanting: "How very much I've tried my best to give you a good life. But in spite ..... All I think (inaudible) from the hands of the enemy. Hurry, my children. Hurry." And when we look back at the Tea Party Downgrade II, the Tea Party Great Depression II -- and the weakness that is John Boehner, it's not really a blame game - it's the nation holding the Tea Party and those who are aligned with them responsible. Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Michele Bachman -- all of them are true believers - let them drink the tea flavored kool aid.
