Your Wayback Time Machine To Last August’s House Vote On The Fiscal Cliff

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

dead man sobbingPerhaps you have just watched John Boehner manage to stop himself from weeping through his press conference outlining where we go now, after yesterday’s ceremonial Shitting of the Bed. And you noticed (after of course noticing the ease with which he told fat lies like he was Mitt Romney in orangeface, again) that he mentioned several times that the inability to come to an agreement with the president and the senate is not the fault of House Republicans, because they passed a bill to replace the sequester back in August. Let us remind ourselves of what this comprised.

Here is Kris Benson, girlsplainer, at the time:

[T]he Republicans who agreed to a debt deal (to be put off into the Future, which is Now) would like to rewrite it so that the half of the automatic spending cuts that they care about (i.e. high class escorts for all military contractors) miraculously do not go into effect. Because Barack Obama refuses to compromise, obviously.

One year after Congress approved a controversial plan to extend the nation’s debt ceiling, Republicans are stepping up their campaign to repeal a major part of the law. They’re worried about a part of the measure called “sequester,” a requirement that spending for some federal government programs be slashed starting in 2013 once a “supercommittee” of Congress failed to compromise on $1 trillion in deficit reductions last fall. The law requires that more than $100 billion be sequestered — or automatically cut — in January.

GOP officeholders and candidates, however, aren’t worried about all the automatic reductions. They’re concerned that more than $50 billion in cuts will come from the Defense Department, saying that will threaten national security and tens of thousands of defense-related private-sector jobs. They’re pushing to rewrite that part of the law.

The rest of the cuts that would deprive 700,000 young children of nutrition assistance, 100,000 kids of Head Start, and the 25,000 teachers and aides of their jobs — well, we have to make Sacrifices, you guys. And by “we” we mean you, specifically, unless you work for a defense contractor or the highest echelons of the federal government, in which case you’re in good shape.

Remember, being a Republican means never having to live up to your end of the bargain, because compromising is for losers.

Cool cool, thank you August 6 Kris Benson! Let us always remember that the House GOP, who are one half of one half one branch of government, are the ones who never have to compromise a single one of their “principles” (tax cuts for millionaires) because the American people are completely behind them.

I really miss the southern drawl of Shelby Foote, author of the trilogy on the Civil War and featured in Ken Burns' documentary. But his statement in that film that we as Americans are talented at political compromise and that this talent failed during that period makes me think he was speaking of another America, one which I don't live in and am not familiar with.

Lot_49 December 21, 2012 at 10:48 am

You can't compromise on human slavery, or manger scenes on the city hall lawn. You either think this is Christian theocracy which countenances chattel slavery, or you don't.

Unfortunately the republitards and their Pope Grover the First have made tax increases a symbolic issue rather than a quantitative one. "Taxes BAD!" is not a philosphy; it barely rises to the bumper-sticker level of discourse. But they've bet the farm on it, and I hope they lose it all.

Chet Kincaid_ December 21, 2012 at 1:05 pm

Christian theocracy and chattel slavery don't necessarily go together, many Abolitionists were devout Christians.

Lot_49 December 21, 2012 at 1:16 pm

Of course. Meant to relate them (the creche and slavery) has issues that cannot be compromised on.

tessiee December 21, 2012 at 12:33 pm

The Shelby Foote segments are one of my favorite parts of that Civil War mini-series. I would listen to Shelby Foote read the phone book*.

I'll say this about John Boehner — he's been the most consistent Speaker of the House that I know of — everything he's ever done has been failure and obstruction. When the man can't even get his own party to pass a deal that's slightly better than the awful crap they passed to give themselves incentive to pass something better, well — I don't know, there's just something magical about that.

The republican party has become, since Ronald Reagan, completely, thoroughly, radicalized, in a reactionary fashion. They no longer accept the basic premises on which our system is based. For example, they no longer accept the basic premise that government is a good thing and taxes are a necessary and good thing to accomplish collective works for the common good. The mentally ill, and I truly mean it, mentally ill, insane, "philosophy" of the Rand-tards and anti-tax libertarians are a cancer and it is these radical insane reactionary ideas that have broken the system by making compromise impossible. When it was a matter of "we both know its good to help the poor, but we are just arguing about HOW MUCH HELP, we could compromise, when we both accepted that taxing the people to fund the government was a necessary and good thing, and we were just arguing about HOW MUCH TAXATION, we could compromise. But these people reject the basic premises about the nature and role of government and charity and really, I mean this literally, CIVILIZATION ITSELF. They are barbarians and cannot be compromised with any more than the Romans could compromise with the Vandals or the Huns.

prommie December 21, 2012 at 11:04 am

I didn't even get to why I said "reactionary." They are not FOR anything, there is a fundamental amoral nihilism about them, they are FOR nothing, their beliefs are entirely defined by what they are against, and what they are against, is modernism and liberalism, everything in civilization since the enlightenment. They have no positive agenda at all, all they want is a return, literally, to the dark ages, they promote nothing, they only reject things. What are they in favor of? Their idea of a perfect society is, literally, "nature red in tooth and claw," survival of the fittest, devil-take-the-hindmost SAVAGERY. They want a return to a state of uncivilized savagery. Their fondest dreams are of some unfettered capitalist state which truly seems to resemble nothing so much as savage uncivilized anarchy. So I say again, they are barbarians, and their beliefs, fundamentally, are a reactionary attack on the achievements of civilization itself. They are evil, in the darkest most nihilistic way.

FakaktaSouth December 21, 2012 at 11:06 am

Well, I think they are "for" things like Mitch McConnell's net worth increasing by like 18million in his last 6 years, so there's that.

prommie December 21, 2012 at 11:09 am

I over-simplify. They are FOR guns, wars, and the death penalty. They are for letting the sick, the weak, and the helpless die. They are for DEATH and the tools and means to bring about death. They are savages, they are bloodthirsty belligerent violent uncivlized barbarians.

FakaktaSouth December 21, 2012 at 11:16 am

I don't really think that is the case. i don't believe they would give a fuck about any of that if they couldn't make such bank over it. It is all about who is giving them the biggest influx of cash, the insurance companies, the private prison contractors, the NRA, the makers of bomber planes we will never use. Those are things upon which to stand, because, money.

tessiee December 21, 2012 at 12:39 pm

This, exactly.
It would be one thing to say that they're greedy fucks, who want to suck up all the everythings and let the rest of us starve to death — which is blatantly obvious to me — but that's only half of it.
The rest of it is they HATE poor people, minorities, old people, and now what's left of the middle class. Everyone with eyes to see saw that every time Ryan smirked. They don't want to just let us sink, they want to throw us an anvil. They're angry, hateful, shitheads whose day is not complete until they grind their heel into somebody's windpipe.

So true! The ONLY way!

SayItWithWookies December 21, 2012 at 11:13 am

Actually I think this is good for President Obama and the only thing that's surprised me about how it's played out is that Boehner couldn't keep his own party in line — of course that has more to do with having a majority whip who's constantly working against him, but that's another matter.

If Obama and Congress had worked out a deal to avert the sequestrations, then the Republicans were just gonna play chicken with the debt ceiling limit once they got back into session in January, and Obama would've given up all his leverage already with the fiscal cliff deal. Now Obama can hold out a deal to keep the tax cuts for the <$250,000 brackets as an incentive for Republicans to vote for the debt ceiling, which he wouldn't have been able to use before.

So all that crying should just be going on in the Republicans' camp — there are some cuts to social services, too, but those don't have to take effect immediately, and Obama will have a less teabaggy Congress to work with in 2013 — one that's seen the consequences of their — ahem — principled stand blowing up in their faces.

Meh, it's not like they're fetuses or anything.

I haz a confuse:

"GOP officeholders and candidates, however, aren’t worried about all the automatic reductions. They’re concerned that more than $50 billion in cuts will come from the Defense Department, saying that will threaten national security and tens of thousands of defense-related private-sector jobs."

I thought that government doesn't create jobs.

Wait, this is a different fiscal cliff? It's not still August? So that's why it's so cold outside.

In the immortal words of Pogo: "It is to larf!". Boner, thinking he is Captain of the Tea-Tanic now learns he is naught but a lowly Steward, in Third Class, no less. I can't fucking wait for Louie Gohmert's ascension to the Speaker's Office.

I think some actually believe it, the dumb, unhinged ones, which is most of them. Look at Rand Paul, the poster-child for dumb, unhinged libertarian retard, and yes Rebecca, fucking retard, retard, retard, libertarian retards are ruining this country, fucking emotionally and intellectually retarded fucking libertarian fucking retards. Precious little fucking retard angels. Re-Fucking-Tards. Anyway, look at Rand, he actually believes that fucking Going Galt 12-year old boy revenge fantasy bullshit, cause he's a fucking retard. Or am I naive? I think they believe it, because, they are retards. Motherfucking retards.
