Well, Boehner finally blinked! Yes, after all of his self-righteousness and sanctimony over protecting the Bush tax cuts for the top 1% of Americans, he and his fellow 1%ers in the House were unwilling to extend Payroll tax cuts to the average American. Hypocrisy’s Poster Child is John Boehner.
What caused Boehner to finally blink and agree to extending the Payroll tax cuts? Some type of Epiphany, some enlightenment, some type of moral decency breaking through? No, I fear not. You know you are in trouble when the likes of Mitch McConnell and the “Bag of Crazy” John McCain are calling for cooperation from the Republicans. Yes, Boehner did the right thing to save his posterior and for no other reason. Kudos to President Obama for his response to the bellicose bigot, Boehner, during a phone call when Boehner told the President he would not compromise, “so what should we do,” to which President Obama responded, “pass the bill.” While $40. a paycheck is nothing to Boehner and his cronies, it is a matter of having enough food, or medication for many Americans.
