    GOP leaders remove 4 from plum House committees

    GOP leaders remove 4 from plum House committees - Yahoo! News

    Looks like republicans may have had enough from the tea party. Could the republicans be ready to cave and increase taxes on the wealthy? Might we actually get a true conservative proposal involving less spending all around, and some increased revenue from the rich and spoiled? Have the republicans actually learned a lesson from this past election?

    There have been numerous GOP proposals which are exactly this. You can only see them if you WANT to.

    The establishment has its knives out, but it's too late. The Tea Party and its rightwingnoise machine will win. What does Limbaugh and Beck say about this? What they say goes with the knownothing base. The GOP can only go in one direction and that's more and more extreme and absurd.

    The Tea Party is the Republican's concious to the need to control our budget. I think Demint did a great job saying the $2.2 trillion deficit reduction offer by the "Republicans" wasn't enough. It makes obama out the fool for being so obtuse about really cutting spending and increasing taxes responsibly.

    Bring on the cliffy....we need to show the left its over, there are no seats left, the music has stopped and they can't just continue to print and spend.

    The republicans are not in a win win situation here. If they compromise with the Democrats and raise taxes on the wealthy, they face the Norquest punishment. If they do nothing, taxes will go up on everyone, then the democrats will propose a tax reduction on income lower than 250 grand. If the republicans don't vote for it, they will be seen as the party that caused everyone's taxes to increase. The majority of the US is in favor of raising taxes on income over 250 grand and is not in favor of drastically cutting social programs. The republicans dug a deep hole for themselves and if they don't start climbing out of it, they will bury themselves.

    In my opinion those lawmakers removed from their key positions--Reps. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas and Justin Amash of Michigan, and Reps. Walter Jones of North Carolina and David Schweikert of Arizona--has woke up and noticed that there are a brand new breed of voters out there in voting land and it's high time the GOP quit bawling and get on the train because it's going to leave them behind.

    Limbaugh and Beck opinions are irrelevant, as are those of other entertainers.

    If the regime would get off the backs of the private sector and let them make some money, we would see an increase in revenue.

    Always these vague claims, rarely any specifics.
