EXCLUSIVE – Boehner: ‘Unreasonable’ White House Passing Up ‘Middle Ground Offer’ Today, House Speaker John Boehner offered a counteroffer to the White House’s insulting fiscal cliff offer, which would have increased taxes by $1.6 trillion, raised spending, and indefinitely suspended the debt ceiling. Boehner’s offer would have included $800 billion in new tax revenue from closing loopholes and limiting deductions, and reduced the deficit by $2.2 trillion overall by implementing spending cuts and entitlement reforms.

The White House immediately rejected the offer.

Tonight, Boehner’s office fired back. Kevin Smith, spokesman for the Speaker, told Breitbart News: “Republicans have once again offered a responsible, balanced plan to avoid the fiscal cliff, and the White House has once again demonstrated how unreasonable it has become. If the President is rejecting this middle ground offer, it is now his obligation to present a plan that can pass both chambers of Congress.”

    I wouldn't have made that counteroffer. And I am shocked and astonished that Obama didn't take it. It would have been the smart, Chicago thing to do. Instead he did the Revolutionary French thing.

    The American people bought that party of no bs linestraight from the media and the ignorant lying politicians.
    The Leadership of Harry Reid has ensured that nothing gets done. Now that Boehner gave his offer and Obama turned it down, who will they blame?
    The Republicans
    Why?
    The Celebrity in Chief knows all, his policies will lead to the collapse of American Imperialism, always Obama's goal. Then he and his wife can be proud of taking down this great nation.
    Let the cliff come, all the tax breaks gone from Obama voters sounds like they deserve it.

    Boy, you guys just don't get it, do you? The President is simply following his promise to (the majority of) American people who believe an increase in the tax rate on the wealthy is appropriate at this time. Is there any more to it than that, obstructionists? Get a clue.

    Clinton would have Jumped on such an offer then taken credit for it (called triangulation).
    Obama wants us to go over the cliff.

    I am thinking that Boehner did the smart thing here
    he called obama's buff.
    Now if all the Conservatives go in and vote "Present"
    (you know obama's favorite stance in Congress)
    then HE will own the whole thing and his faithful
    WILL BE SCREWED along with the rest of us.

    Doesn't matter. They'll blame the GOP no matter what. As long as the MSM refuses to report in an unbiased manner, Obama is teflon.

    Gee....those look like along the lines of the election to me....
    no surprise and right now I really don't care.
    I have prepared for this and I am willing to bet these idiots haven't.
    Look the whole election has been brought and those that were
    brought will pay for this dearly because there won't be money for them...
    they were used and they will feel regardless of who's fault they think
    it was because they dayum sure aren't going to blame their messiah or themselves.
    We are coming to a time that the Bible predicted....a day's wages for a loaf of bread.

    The republicans HAVE to pass a responsible and reasonable plan in the house, then send it on to the senate. That way it will be up to the senate and Harry Reid to negotiate a fair deal that is acceptable to both parties. If Harry fails to do that, it will rest squarely upon the senate democrats and Barry's shoulders for NOT working to pound out a fair deal for the American people.

    That's right John, you offered what they originally asked for and they turned it down. The strategy is clear, Obama WANTS the US to go OVER THE CLIFF.
    Now sit down and let them OWN it.
