Mark Levin “Goes Nuclear” on Boehner, DeMint Criticizes Him For Wanting to Destroy Jobs

DeMint Criticizes Boehner’s Deficit-Cut Plan

By Kathleen Hunter and Richard Rubin. House Speaker John Boehner’s proposal to generate $800 billion in new revenue “will destroy American jobs” and Republicans should oppose it, Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina said today.

The comments from DeMint, co-founder of the Senate’s anti- tax Tea Party caucus, represent a strong indictment of Boehner’s plan from a fellow Republican lawmaker and highlight a divide within the party. Boehner yesterday proposed a $2.2 trillion deficit-cutting proposal that seeks $800 billion in revenue in the next decade from an overhaul of the tax code that would curb some breaks.

“Speaker Boehner’s $800 billion tax hike will destroy American jobs and allow politicians in Washington to spend even more, while not reducing our $16 trillion debt by a single penny,” DeMint said in a statement. “Republicans must oppose tax increases and insist on real spending reductions that shrink the size of government and allow Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money.”

The remarks signify that Boehner will have to tamp down opposition from the anti-spending wing of his conference — and probably rely on some Democratic votes — to advance legislation to avert the so-called fiscal cliff through the House. Unless Congress acts, more than $600 billion in tax increases and spending reductions will begin in January.

“Is John Boehner prepared to bring this measure to a vote with the understanding that it will pass with a bipartisan majority? If he is, let’s press forward in negotiations,” the Senate’s second-ranking Democrat, Richard Durbin of Illinois, said today in an interview. “But if this is just a negotiation to win over the Tea Party Republicans, I am not very hopeful.” Read more from this story HERE.

Mark Levin Goes Nuclear on Boehner

By the Right Scoop. Mark Levin has had enough, saying that Huelskamp was elected by American citizens in his district who sent him there to vote the way he pledged to them he’d vote, and now Huelskamp is being treated like crap from Speaker Boehner because he’s not falling in line? Levin asks “who the hell does Speaker Boehner think he is?” Listen to the audio HERE.

    Why don’t we LET these idiots have their tax party? Let Obama & ilk have their hikes, as they’re going to get 80% anyway, then blame failure on the Republicans as they didn’t get the other 20%! Give them all 100%, Republicans sit back, vote “present” just as their President did when HE was in congresses, THEN 100% can be laid totally at O’s feet. THEN people can SEE exactly what this guy is wanting for the Nation. Almost guaranteed that 1-2 years of this would bring country to its knees.
    THEN we launch a conservative-backed coup, overrun the Republican party & within 2-4 years we can bring in real Americanism of hard work, self-responsibility, Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness.
    We get a real leader into the POTUS that strips & curtails government power, returning it back to the States, localities as the Constitution dictates. Back to Republicanism, not Democracy as we see daily where democracy leads – watch the evening news – Middle Ease, Europe, etc. Democracy ALWAYS leads to anarchy…..

    We may rant on this venue, but Boehner as well as Cantor were reelected & thumb their nose at us. Worse, they take it out on the few Reps with spine and smarts. The TP-reps turn out to be wimps in order to stay on the good side of RINOs.

    Whenever Dems talk with approval of a Rep proposal, watch out! Same with McConnell, he’s a fence sitter just like McCain, mostly ogling left. Am amazed at Ryan, has he lost his gumption, too? We won’t see much if anything done that will benefit this country or society, this much seems all too clear.

    There is far too much useless and vaporous quarterbacking going on that only serves to fill Progressives with glee. Is that what we aim for, being mocked?

    Perhaps that’s what was wrong with the november voting–we talked too much against each other, “softened” our stance to stay PC, then stayed away “on principle,” and look what that got us–four more years of a destructive regime.

  • Mark Levin is a hero. We need voices like his ringing from sea to sea. The House must vote against Boehner. He does not represent us, but they do.

    The Boner pronunciation is correct. If Boner wants to mis-pronounce his name as Banor (Baa nor), he should have his name changed legally.

    Republicans in the House need to pass a bill upholding the Bush era tax cuts and submit it to the Senate for a vote. Then, when the Democrats vote it down, the tax hikes will be on Obama and not Republicans.

    Mark Levin needs to start a Central Command, as he jokingly says in his beginning segments….he’s in a bunker….must be prophetic.
