Do NOT Cave and Raise Any Taxes, Republicans; Bam Will Blink First
I have a question. I want to play an audio sound bite here of President Obama. And, by the way, what is this? Obama sends a request out, summons members of Congress to the White House tomorrow for a hearing or conference on the debt limit. Didn’t Mitch McConnell six days ago invite the president? What Mitch McConnell ought to say is, “Thank you, Mr. President, for accepting our invitation. We’re happy to meet you at the White House.” I’m gonna tell you Republicans something right now and right here, and if you know anybody who’s an elected Republican, I want you to pass this on to ’em because this is key. At this meeting tomorrow Obama is going to do everything he can to get these guys to raise taxes. Now, in the Senate he might not have much of a problem. In the Senate there might be some Republicans that go along, I don’t think the majority of them, but the House Republicans are not going to sign anything that raises taxes. They just aren’t. And so Republicans, you have got to go into that meeting tomorrow fully aware that the president is the one who’s gonna have to cave.
