ABC News Reports ‘Republican Doomsday Plan’

At ABC News Jonathan Karl reports:

Republicans are seriously considering a Doomsday Plan if fiscal cliff talks collapse entirely. It’s quite simple: House Republicans would allow a vote on extending the Bush middle class tax cuts (the bill passed in August by the Senate) and offer the President nothing more: no extension of the debt ceiling, nothing on unemployment, nothing on closing loopholes. Congress would recess for the holidays and the president would face a big battle early in the year over the debt ceiling.

rding to Karl, a “variation” on the plan would have House GOP members allowing a vote only on extension of “middle class tax cuts,” but voting “present” on the bill, so that it would pass with Democratic votes only, and so Democrats would “tak(e) blame for tax increases on 98 percent of income tax payers.”

What better to follow a contrived “fiscal cliff” than a contrived “doomsday plan”?

    The House of Representatives is under the control of a suicide squad!

    Sounds more like a suicide mission to me. The Republican Party might just as well put a bullet through its brain because voters are dumb. They know who is responsible and they will vote them out in the then 2014 midterms and again in 2016.

    Go ahead with your “doomsday plan” Republiturds because is will only accelerate your own funeral which cannot come too quickly as far as I am concerned.

    Make that “voters are NOT DUMB’. Remember the election we just had? Who do you think the majority blames for the downgrade of the US credit rating? Not the President, but the jerks who blocked increasing the debt limit for Obama, the same jerks that did it like they were falling off a log for Bush.
