Krauthammer to Republicans: “Walk Away” From Obama’s Fiscal Cliff Deal (Video)

Walking away seems like the only reasonable response to Obama’s Fiscal Cliff  proposal, other than to “laugh out loud”, as Mitch McConnell did.

Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, says he “burst into laughter” Thursday when Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner outlined the administration proposal for averting the fiscal cliff. He wasn’t trying to embarrass Geithner, McConnell says, only responding candidly to his one-sided plan, explicit on tax increases, vague on spending cuts…

Geithner suggested $1.6 trillion in tax increases, McConnell says, but showed “minimal or no interest” in spending cuts. When congressional leaders went to the White House three days after the election, Obama talked of possible curbs on the explosive growth of food stamps and Social Security disability payments. But since Geithner didn’t mention them, those reductions appear to be off the table now, McConnell says.

Charles Krauthammer, on Fox’s Special Report, tonight, called the offer “an insult.”

Democrats, he says, are asking Republicans for “unconditional surrender,” because there are no cuts – and spending increases – in the current deal. Republicans, says Krauthammer, “ought to simply walk away.”

  1. .

    It’s Murdoch Media/Fox Networks (MM/FN) and Charles Krauthammer. They’re back. MM/FN hates USA, the people of USA, and President Obama. MM/FN are why the GOP became the RepublicanT Party and lost the national election.

    Please keep listening to MM/FN. You go far.

  3. Ahh I see the REgressive wackos troll by now and then huh ND-and always right away to “hate”-yawn.

    Anyway, Charles is right, Boehner better grow a pair and walk. Buy that 30 minutes Levin recommended and lay it out to the country just how bad not only is this idiocy from the left but where we’re headed if we don’t take some real steps to turn this around. Than lay out those steps. RR did this all the time and back then there was no alternative media.

    Personally, I’d love to see Ted Cruz or Rand Paul make the case-it would immediately put the ball back in Obama’s court


  4. Ema….do you even understand how grave our fiscal situation is? Do you understand Obama and his cohorts have no solution – they actually want the economy to melt down? Is that the hope and change – the transformation of America you voted for?

  6. I don’t know about anyone else, but no one needed to make the CASE of our economic nightmare to me-than again, I work my ass off and would live under a GD bridge before I took a nickel of welfare-like it’s been said before, if you can’t chew the fat and haven’t made provision for what’s ahead, than your time on this earth is over.
