John Boehner has voted with the Democratic leadership 52 percent of the time in 2010. So has Rep. Mike Pence, chairman of the Republican conference and former head of the conservative Republican Study Committee. Gee, they must be rubber stamps for Nancy Pelosi!

I was reminded tonight that John Boehner could become second in the line of succession for president should the republicans gain majority in the house. The thought has me feeling unnerved.

No matter how much the corporate GOP-friendly media tries to cover for Republicans, it’s kinda hard to project the appearance of an unstoppable juggernaut when you have to go into hock to do it. Yet that’s exactly what John Boehner and the NRCC are planning.

While the unfunded pension liabilities in many public retirement funds have received an inordinate amount of attention, the larger retirement deficit of most Americans is not generating the level of concern that it deserves. Individuals who have been left on their own to save for retirement in 401(k) accounts face challenges that are not being met.

Remember how John Boehner and the Republicans said they’d pledged to help small businesses through tax cuts? That was September 23. On September 24, all but one Republican voted against a Democratic bill that does just that.

Virtually all of the Republicans’ proposals to repeal or “chip away” at the health reform act would make Americans sicker, raise health care costs, reduce insurance coverage, allow or encourage insurers to bilk consumers and further liberate anti-competitive health care providers to fix prices and collude, to continuing charging far more than their European counterparts.

Thursday, September 16, 2010! Happy early Constitution Day, softcore porn for Christine O’Donnell, and Ohio’s corrupt incompetence.

Yesterday, John Boehner was challenged by Bob Schieffer with the indisputable fact that only 3% of small businesses would benefit from extending the tax cuts — but he quickly shifted his attention to a different and less relevant statistic.

We constantly hear the monotonous refrain from the right that now is not the time to raise taxes, even for the richest Americans, citing that this will somehow threaten the weak and halting recovery. Yet a composite number of 59% of the American people either favor the expiration of tax cuts for the wealthiest or a roll back of the Bush era tax cuts entirely as per the latest Gallup Poll.
