Boehner Cancels Vote on Fiscal Cliff

Main Page

Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: December of 2012
Categories: Fiscal Cliff, John Boehner, 111th House Republicans & Politicians
Speaker Boehner pulled his tax plan from consideration after realizing that it would not pass the House. The fact that the Speaker of the House of Representatives can not get his caucus to fall in line shows that he has lost total control of his conference. Now that the House Republicans has publically rebuked their leader, the negotiations are at a stand still. With the clock ticking towards the fiscal cliff, Speaker Boehner now has a significantly weaker hand in negotiations with the President and Senate Democrats.
