View Diary: GOP offers fiscal cliff 'proposal' but forgets to include any details (140 comments)

  •  Demand the Republicans produce a bill (0+ / 0-)

    that can be discussed in committee and then voted for on the floor.  They control the House, which is where the revenue bills have to originate from (well, the Senate bill for the tax cuts for middle income started with a House bill which was gutted and replaced).

    Then we'll see the targets for the cuts and the numbers.  I don't see a purpose in accepting a 2-3 page letter for Boehner as being a surrogate for an actual 1000 page bill (or however long the US Budget bill will run on).

    If they want to control Congress, they better be ready to govern.  If they just want to whine about Obama, they should vote Pelosi in as Speaker and then they can sit in the back bench and carp all they want.
