    U.S. House Speaker John Boehner said Republicans would be willing to accept new tax revenue to reduce the nation’s budget deficit if it’s accompanied by a tax overhaul and changes to entitlement programs.

    Speaking in Washington a day after President Barack Obama’s re-election, Boehner of Ohio said all sides are “closer than many think” to being able to revise the tax code.
    “Shoring up entitlements and reforming the tax code -- closing special interest loopholes and deductions, and moving to a fairer, simpler system -- will bring jobs home and result in a stronger, healthier economy,” the speaker said, according to a prepared text.

    “Mr. President, this is your moment,” Boehner said, according to the text.

    Boehner called for bipartisan negotiations to avert the fiscal cliff of tax increases and spending cuts scheduled to begin in January. He emphasized Republican opposition to raising tax rates.

    Yes of course, we still have the house. How long did it take for Boehner to cave, 16 hrs

    Why you consider it caving ? Many economists agree that closing certain "Loopholes" and lowering tax rates would generate higher revenues.
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Wasn't "closing loopholes" part of Romney's tax plan?

    Not worth the time...

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    Well it was and Speaker Boehner must agree with all the economists that agree such a plan would work without raising taxes.

    No matter how you want to slice it, removing more revenue from producers by taking away expense deductions etc... and giving the money to the non producers in society is not good for an economy that is hurting for jobs and investment in the manufacturing sector.
    Take away my deductions and incentive to grow and you remove any desire I have to produce.
    This is all about Obama refusing to spend less and continuing to give his friends and interests a free ride.
    Call it what you like, it is taking my investment money and giving it to non productive individuals.
