Boehner can do Plans C through Z and all will be rejected out of hand. Obama wants to go over the cliff. The only thing the Republicans can do is make sure Obama gets the blame. Rejecting package after package is a good place to start pointing fingers. Use their own blame tactics against them. Go to the public. If Boehner can't do it, find someone else. Or maybe use the mob tactics of the Left. Everyone needs to start pointing squarely at Obama. If Bohner keeps looking like a sad puppy every time he leaves the White House, this whole thing will (and already is) go downhill faster than an Olympic skier. We know we are going over the cliff/slop/hill/speed bump. Stop messing with non-existent negotiations and work on the PR game.

Somebody said, never get into an argument with an institution which buys ink by the barrel. The media will be in overdrive protecting their beloved man child.

The republicans will get the blame, will lose horribly in 2014 and then definitely lose the presidency in 2016. Would that make you happy?

Phoney baloney. And if this country continues to tip with more and more people on entitlements and fewer paying all the income taxes.... you can kiss 2016 goodbye anyway. And how about just doing the right thing for once. Raising income taxes on top 2% will do diddly squat when it comes to the deficit.

The election sealed our fate.

House Speaker John Boehner announced Tuesday he will be bringing a fiscal cliff "plan B" to the House floor this week for a vote. Boehner says his new plan will protect as many taxpayers as possible and is a tax-only measure. More from National Journal.

Two congressional sources said the vote would probably be held on Thursday.

The tax-only measure is being called "Plan B" by Republicans and they are looking at it as an alternative to a broader plan that the speaker has been negotiating with the White House.
