This is too funny. Two months ago the State House passed a tax increase. They passed it by a margin of 133-23. Today they repealed it 156-1

Vote unleashes tidal wave of flip-floppers

Quote:

Nevermind.

That was what the House of Representatives said yesterday about their wonderful new tax on software services.

On July 24, it was such a wonderful idea that they passed it (by overriding a gubernatorial veto) by a vote of 133-23.

Yesterday, almost two months to the day later, the same solons repealed said tax. The vote was 156-1, against.

So now more than 120 House Democrats can say, truthfully, that they were for that software-services tax before they were against it. Today it’s the Senate’s turn to fall on its sword.

The only House hack to stand firm was state Rep. Angelo Scaccia (D-Hyde Park).

He said, “Never, never, never give up what you had to work for.”

Surely Angelo meant to say, never give up what others have worked for, and you have robbed them of.

This was what you’d call a rout. How bad was it? Last week, when asked about the pending repeal of the tax he’d been salivating over all summer, Gov. Deval Patrick said, basically, “Who, me?”

He told reporters, why are you asking me about this? I vetoed this.

Yeah, he did. It was part of a $500 million package of tax hikes. He wanted $1.9 billion in new taxes. That’s why he vetoed it — it didn’t tax working people back to the Stone Age fast enough.

State Rep. Brian Dempsey (D-Haverhill), the Ways and Means chairman, was one of the very few Democrats who spoke up at all yesterday before the humiliating vote. His excuse was that the business community had initially supported it.

Well, no, not really.

Last summer, Dempsey kept talking about the 35 states who’d passed similar taxes, as if that made it OK. But just before the 123-33 vote two months ago, state Rep. Marc Lombardo
(R-Billerica) pointed out that the leadership’s claims were lame.

“It was sold to this Legislature that the industry was OK with the tax increases.” Not quite. Lombardo had gotten a letter from a computer company CEO saying “a major client he works with that does $20 million in buys in Massachusetts put a halt to all of it. He noted this tax will not only drive his company but his fellow companies to seek refuge in New Hampshire.”

Did the sheeple and the moonbats and the EBT-fraud enablers care in the least? They did not.

State Rep. Carl Sciortino
(D-Medford) was one of the few to speak up for the entire $1.9 billion tax package in July. He thanked the governor for “giving us an opportunity to make a generational investment.”

They’re not making generations like they used to, I guess, because yesterday Sciortino voted to repeal the software-services piece of the “generational investment.”

He’s running for Congress by the way. Another profile in courage, like the guy he wants to succeed, Ed Markey. He’d fit right in down in D.C., flip-flopping, spinning wildly in the wind like a weather vane.

As state Rep. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton) said yesterday: “It’s not that people didn’t know, it’s that they didn’t care.”

thats true of adenocarcinoma of the pancreas but according to the article cited earlier this isnt what he had, and it was apparently found early as an incidenttal finding on a CT.

Supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had a small pancreatic cancer found on an annual scan in 2010, had surgery and is doing well.


Its tragic that the hippie mentality in Jobs probably cost him his life

Jobs wasn't a hippie, he was a yuppie who believed in pseudo-science.

If you're replying to Lost Horizons, it's important to know the Boston Herald is essentially a tabloid.

So the GOP wishlist for agreeing to delay the debt ceiling battle came out today (work in progress)

Quote:
Christmas is coming early for House Republicans.

A draft of the GOP leadership's proposal to lift the debt ceiling through December 2014 is circulating and it's the equivalent of a letter to Santa for the party's base.

The bill, obtained by the National Review, tacks on items including a one-year delay of Obamacare; tax reform in the image of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI); approval of the Keystone pipeline; expanded offshore drilling and other pro-oil and coal energy reforms; increases in military spending coupled with deeper cuts to domestic programs; repealing a fund in the financial regulatory reform bill; means testing for Medicare; repealing the Obamacare prevention and public health fund and medical malpractice reform.

One House GOP leadership aide didn't deny the contents of the summary but cautioned that it may not be final. The aims, however, reflect the direction the House of Representatives is taking and contains important clues as to how the debate will unfold.

"On the debt limit, we're going to introduce a plan that ties important spending cuts and pro-growth reforms to a debt limit increase," said House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). "Now the president says, 'I'm not going to negotiate.' Well, I'm sorry, but it just doesn't work that way."

Democrats believe the Republican plan is crazy. And President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have repeatedly vowed not to make concessions in order to lift the debt ceiling. But Boehner is in a bind because the debt limit is a very tough vote for conservatives and he needs to dangle all sorts of enticements before them in order to win over most Republicans.

If and when the House passes the GOP debt limit bill, it'll be sent to the Senate, and Boehner will demand they accept the legislation (a total nonstarter) or come to the table (which would mean caving on their current stance).

The likely scenario is Reid, backed by the White House, will dismiss the legislation and hold firm in their refusal to negotiate, spurring a staring contest with Boehner as the clock ticks to disaster. Democratic leaders intend to marshal the support of the business community and outside stakeholders to pressure Republicans to let the debt limit hostage go. They'd need to stand united, and so far they have been.

The other option would be for the Senate to pass its own "clean" debt limit bill as Boehner folds his arms and demands Obama come to the table. That'll be a tough vote for many senators and Democratic leaders will need at least six Republicans to break a filibuster. Leadership aides declined to speculate on this until the House passes a bill.

Either way, giving conservative lawmakers the chance to vote for the Christmas tree bill may provide Boehner some cover to eventually succumb to a clean debt limit hike as the country gets closer to the Oct. 17 deadline. Unless Democrats cave, he will face a choice between triggering a global economic meltdown and bringing up a short bill to lift the debt ceiling, which could pass the House with mostly Democratic support.

Boehner dodged a question on Thursday about whether he's willing to risk an economic crash and credit downgrade if Democrats rebuff his demands.

"We have a spending problem that has to be addressed," he told reporters.

It's kinda funny, so many people are afraid of sharing/helping others at a loss for themselves, but we have people in power that only give a **** about "Me. Me. Me." Individualism to the extreme, especially from people in power, is scary.

Based on a rambling post on a blog that links to a website with no actual recall petition?

If that's the opposition, I think McCain's job is safe.

How ever it is a futile since they can't be recalled. But I think it sends a message maybe.

It doesn't send a message. McCain isn't going to lose sleep because a handful of people are upset with him.

I don't know if it would survive the SCOTUS though.

Recall's normally only bring politically active people. The general elections bring out sheeps that pull the lever on R or D and go about their business.

So you're calling those sources legitimate?
