Boehner shows no leadership in the Republican party. It is an absolute no brainer that taxes must be raised on the top 2% of income taxpayers. He also must be able to convience his party that military hardware that the military doesn't want should be cut from that portion of the budget. Cutting medicare, social security and medicade will only exacerbate the demand problem which drives the economy. Loopholes for corporations need to be closed. Tax incentives need to be put in place for corporations that create jobs in the U.S. Subsidies to the oil industry need to be cut. Ethanol subsidies need to be cut. Ethanol does little to reduce the usage of oil. In fact, it may have a negative impact.
