Women senators agree: If women were in charge, there’d be a fiscal cliff deal by now

posted at 8:41 pm on December 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite, this is worth watching if only to see McCaskill mouth a bit of ancient biological determinism that would have set the left off on a two-day screech bender had she been a Republican man. I think the clip’s worst sin is how cloying it is: Diane Sawyer decided to bring the women of the Senate together to talk about capital-w Women, so naturally some self-serving CW about capital-w Women must get said. Thank you, Susan Collins, for handling the easy lay-up. I’d like to hear more from her and McC about why compromise is a virtue in itself (especially since the fiscal cliff is a product of bipartisan compromise) and how standing firm because you’re committed to your economic beliefs is really just a form of male pigheadedness. Don’t you hate how men refuse to ask for directions when they’re lost? And how they whine when you ask them to concede on billions of new taxes on small businesses?

Speaking of compromise, Keith Hennessey’s got a bipartisan plan in mind in case all else fails. It’s not one he likes and it’s not one he wants to see the House pass, but it might get the GOP a bit more leverage at the table with O:

I think option C is S. 3412, a bill passed by the Senate in July. The short description is that this bill “extends the middle class tax relief for one year and allows tax cuts for the rich to expire.” More precisely, here is what the bill does (Joint Tax table is here):

It extends for one year all current income tax rates for incomes < $200K (single) and <$250K (married);
For one year it keeps the capital gains rate at 15% for the same incomes as above;
For one year it (explicitly) raises the capital gains and dividends rates to 20% for incomes >$200K/$250K;
It extends for one year other provisions of current law, important and not-so-important: marriage penalty relief and the child credit, education tax relief, and a handful of smaller provisions; and
It patches the AMT for 2012…

I detest S. 3412 and do not want it to become law. But I fear that Congressional Republicans are so afraid of being blamed for a no-bill scenario that they will agree to support a hypothetical Obama-Boehner deal that is even worse. They should not do that. They must not do that.

In other words, the GOP would give in on tax hikes on the rich — a prospect that Republicans generally and even some prominent tea partiers seem increasingly resigned to — but it’d be for just one year, thus limiting the economic damage done and buying time for deliberations over tax reform. And because 3412 passed the Senate entirely with Democratic votes, theoretically Obama would have no choice but to sign it if it passed the House now. It’s already “the Democratic plan.” But then, the point here isn’t to get Obama to sign it; it’s to pressure him to make further concessions by threatening him with a short-term bill pre-approved by Democrats that would deny him a debt-ceiling hike, permanent tax hikes on the rich, new stimulus spending, and lots of other goodies he’s looking for in a “grand bargain.” It’s a play for a bit more leverage in negotiations. Just one question for Hennessey: Why does he think O would fear vetoing a Democratic bill now when it was passed months before the election? If Boehner passed it, Obama dismiss it by insisting that voters changed the game in November and granted him a mandate on liberal budgetary priorities, such that the Democratic Senate would also surely reject 3412 if it came before them again now. (Reid would give him plenty of cover on that.) Maybe it’s worth the House passing the bill anyway just because it’d put Obama on the defensive in explaining why he prefers going over the cliff to signing a Democratic bill, but I put nothing past the media when it comes to shaping public opinion against Republicans. Obama’s done an expert job of framing the entire deficit reduction debate as an argument over tax hikes on the rich and little else. If he rejected 3412 because it doesn’t make those tax hikes permanent, what’s Boehner’s move then?

I’ll leave you with Philip Klein on why the “no surrender” option isn’t much of an option either. Exit quotation: “What happens [after we go over the cliff] when Harry Reid holds a vote on a bill that lowers rates on the middle class? Will Republican senators vote against it? If so, their challengers can run ads attacking them for voting against a massive middle-class tax cut. What does that do to the brand? And when, in all likelihood, such a bill passes with near-unanimous support in the Senate, what does it do to the House GOP’s low-tax brand if their members resist, bottle up or vote against the same tax cut?”

Thanks to the most racist and sexist administration in modern history, America is becoming even more balkanized at an exponentially increasing pace — almost as if, it were part of some grand Marxist design and plan. Oh, wait!

Then why isn’t half the world run by women? Why aren’t half the great inventions due to women?

Look, at some point you have to confront reality. You can claim that women are as good at math and physics as men are – and you can even point to a few world class female mathematicians and physicists – but that doesn’t address the real issue that women have not participated at the highest levels in either pursuit, outside a true handful through all of history. And math is the great equalizer as it is free and requires nothing to do, just paper and pens.

Facts are facts.

these are the same females that drive around with a “coexist” bumper sticker with all the religious symbols.

too stupid to understand that “coexist” to the muslims doing whatever they want. Of course, this means having no education, legal rights, marital rights except to get a backhand across the face for being wife #5 and serving dinner 5 minutes late or being stoned to death for going outside without a head tent on.

They’d just do whatever oblamo wanted and our kids and grandkids would only be 30 trillion in debt instead of the 16 trillion they owe now.

Seriously, this is what frosts me. Women and minorities want to be considered equal and then go ahead and segregate themselves according to gender/race/religion (whichever). Then complain they are not treated the same as white men. Then segregate themselves again…lather, rinse, repeat.

Yes the world would look different, but the world would also look different if there were only Asians, or young people or smart people.

Men and women may think differently but we’re more similar than we are different. Women and men have mental disorders, diseases, moral compasses, primitive impulses. Those impediments will effect people equally, whether you’re talking about age, gender, ethnicity…it doesn’t matter.

hisfrogness on December 12, 2012 at 9:12 PM

I have noticed the women really like shoes, lots of shoes.

Guys like power tools.

SparkPlug on December 12, 2012 at 9:26 PM

And muscle cars, and chick in leg-enhancing shoes.

How long will it be before white males start to go back to their country of origin? 20,30,40 years ??

rik on December 12, 2012 at 9:23 PM

There won’t be any white males left to speak of in 40 years. According to the 2010 Census, by 2040 white Americans will be the minority; by 2019 for those under the age of 18.

Like 4″ Louboutins.

Also, sometimes — boots.

So the goal is to continue our spiral regardless?

compromise is what caused the 16+ trillion deficits.

And nothing would be more than about five pounds, unless it was motorized. And all the buildings would already be connected by tubes. And half the cable channels would be replaced by shopping channels (I’m sorry — it’s just true).

And the wilderness would be gone — at least the apex predators for any particular niche . . .

Axe on December 12, 2012 at 9:40 PM

. . . and I suppose men would enjoy the mines, really. And we’d get to be taken to the cities once a year for “happiness time” . . .

We’d still be in caves eating raw meat. Everybody knows that fire and the wheel were invented by men.

A knuckle-dragging sexist pig.

Well yeah..there’s that…

I’m sorry, but most of the women are Dems and they’re really dumb. That’s not to say Harry Reid doesn’t have the intellect of an eggplant.
