Conservative Groups to GOP: Vote for ‘Plan B’ and We’ll Come After You

Conservative Groups to GOP: Vote for ‘Plan B’ and We’ll Come After You

From Breitbart:

On Wednesday, the conservative ForAmerica political organization and other groups threatened House Republicans who are considering voting in favor of House Speaker John Boehner’s tax-hiking “Plan B” fiscal proposal not to do so.

ForAmerica chairman Brent Bozell told reporters at a Wednesday press conference that he’d put “primary challengers” up against Republicans who vote for Boehner’s “Plan B.” Boehner’s “Plan B,” an unsolicited offer, is a tax hike on all Americans who make more than $1 million per year. Boehner’s plan was originally proposed by New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer – and later endorsed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi – in early 2012.

“I’m going to make a prediction, right here and now, and write it down – and call me on it. If the Republicans support this tax increase, they will lose control of the House in the 2014 elections,” Bozell said.

They will lose control of the House. Not only that, but a whole lot of members who thought they were safe and who thought they could get away with this will lose in their own districts. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this one out. This is precisely what happened to them six years ago and they’ve already forgotten that message. The Republicans were tossed out of the majority when they broke their word on spending. Now they’re breaking their word again but it’s not just spending. It’s taxes on top of that. Fiscal conservatives will not stand for this. This is a terrible bill. This is a terrible box Republicans have painted themselves into, in this corner. They’ve got to try to get themselves out of it. But going for higher taxes and trying to play “Democrat-lite” is the worst possible solution and the negotiations that are going on right now between the Speaker’s office and the Obama administration is the stuff of Keystone Cops. It is embarrassing how badly this has been negotiated. Real fiscal conservatives would simply walk away from this mess.

A GOP operative told Breitbart News that House Republicans had better heed Bozell’s warning: “ForAmerica has built the closest thing the Republicans have to Obama’s online machine.” The GOP operative claimed, “They’re able to get millions of conservatives aware and active on specific issues at the drop of a hat. I’d worry a lot more about ForAmerica than Grover.”

Americans for Tax Reform, Grover Norquist’s group, issued a statement on Wednesday saying they don’t support or oppose Boehner’s “Plan B,” and they empathize with Republicans who will support it. That said, ATR said it does not endorse Boehner’s plan.
