Senate Source: WH 'Increasingly Comfortable With the Cliff Dive'

Today, Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner visited with Senate Republicans including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), where he proposed $1.6 trillion in tax increases, a one-year delay in scheduled $1.2 trillion cuts to defense and domestic spending (which would only give Obama leverage to raise taxes again in a year), and an eventual, somewhere beyond the rainbow $400 billion reduction in Medicare.

According to a source familiar with the meeting, Geithner also asked for spending increases. Geithner has also publicly asked for a permanent increase in the debt limit.

Senator McConnell laughed out loud at the proposal.

According to our source, when Geithner began reading the details of his proposed deal in Senator McConnell’s office, McConnell began smiling. Geithner saw this, and said, “I see you’re smiling. I didn’t expect you would like this.” That’s when McConnell laughed out loud at him. “Everyone understood that this whole charade was a joke,” said the source. “They’d sent Geithner up there to be the messenger of a ridiculous proposal.” After a brief back and forth, McConnell ended the meeting: “Okay, thanks for coming.”

A Senate Republican aide tells Breitbart News, “It’s clear that the White House is becoming increasingly comfortable with the cliff dive. They’re just not engaged. They’re less engaged than they were two weeks ago.”

Now Timothy Geithner can go ahead and say that the Senate Republicans are stalling the recovery process by laughing at their proposal. Typical. Can't wait for the bottom to fall out. $20T is not that far away.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Let the sequester/cliff happen.

1.6 trillion more in taxes, but wait another year to cut spending, so you can say you'll have to raise taxes again to pay for the stuff you should have stopped paying for over the past year.

My leftist acquaintances are all carrying on about this MY2k tax cut shit and how they can't wait for the middle class tax cut. Where the hell do these people live and how can we get them back to their home planet?

Raise 1.6 trillion in taxes while extending the Bush era tax cut for middle class? They think that's gonna happen? Yeah, bend over and grab yer ankles, comrades. How can people be this damn stupid? I can see why there's talk of raiding private retirement accounts . . . oh, wait, the White Rabbit just ran by here, I 'll see you guys later.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Lol. The cuts proposed I believe 20 years down the road which of course will never happen.

Once again and I can't emphasize too strongly.
HE IS HERE TO DESTROY THE USA.
And they voted for it twice.
