Ron Johnson: John Boehner Would Lose Speakership If He Caves On Taxes To Avert Sequester.

What is all this business about caving to taxes? Again whether you are republican or democrats especially elected official, shouldn’t the priority be to get the country back on its feet and out of the fire? The repercussion are enormous if nothing is done about the sequester as the United States will be worse off with more job loss and automatic spending cuts that will affect many of the government assistance programs people use on a daily basis. Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) told Fox News that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) would lose his speakership if he agrees to new tax revenues to advert the across the board spending cuts that are set to kit in March 1. The comment has raised questions a second time about Boehner’s ability to be House Speaker in the last few months including claims during the fiscal cliff talks in December where he was accused of being more concerned about his job as speaker than making a deal. He most likely will not lose his position even with tensions in the Republican party he was still re-elected to the House Speaker position with only ten House Republicans voting against him. In the fight over sequester, Boehner in his statements has confirmed he will not accept any new tax revenues or hikes, while the president and Democrats are asking for a solution that involves spending cuts and increased revenue by closing corporate tax loopholes and implementing the Buffet rule to raise taxes on billionaires. Hey if Warren Buffet himself is asking for increase in taxes why not do it? In his own statement make Monday, Boehner remarked,”The president says we have to have another tax increase in order to avoid the sequester…Well, Mr. President, you got your tax increase. It’s time to cut spending here in Washington.”
