    Here we go, no give and all take

    3:08 PM A GOP counter offer to the White House includes $800B in new tax revenues (but without higher rates), and $1.4T in spending cuts. House Speaker Boehner calls the White House's original proposal a "la-la land offer."

    • It's a start. Quit crying.

      My guess is you only want more spending and forget about cost cutting. Now tell me how that will balance the buget and pay down the debt?

      Better yet why don't they just go ahead and pass another bill continuing on with the Bush tax cuts. Pass it on to Harry and in the Senate. Ilike that. That puts it on the Democrats to do something.

    • We give, the government taketh away. The game is rigged, the bickering is actually the grand illusion of the two party system that makes you believe their opposed when in fact these buttheads are drinking buddies who work for business interests and wall st who fill their coffers. They are not for the people. If they were, their would be NO fiscal cliff,federal reserve,wars or lobbiests who pay off these corrupt officials. When will the Dumb Americans wake up to this fact? My guess is when it's too late.

    • President;s proposal was for $4 Trillion reduction while GOP's is for $2.2 Trillion. Thought I heard the same two numbers before:

      Updated 3:25 p.m. ET -- Republicans offered up their own proposal to avert the impending “fiscal cliff” on Monday amid Democratic demands that the GOP match the Obama administration’s plan with one of their own.

      In a letter to President Barack Obama, House Republican leaders outlined the contours of a deal they said would achieve a net savings of $2.2 trillion. The plan, which is based on fiscal commission Democratic co-chairman Erskine Bowles’s proposal to the super committee, would achieve these savings through revenue from tax reforms, health savings and discretionary spending cuts.
