Cole, Boehner Still Disagree on Tax Deal

Though House Speaker John Boehner disagrees with him, Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., maintained his proposal to accept a Senate-passed bill that extends the Bush-era tax cuts for 98 percent of Americans.

“I actually do believe that we should take things where we agree with the president -- and we do agree on this -- and take them off the table one at a time,” Cole said on ABC’s This Week. “This will actually strengthen our position in the course of negotiations.”

Earlier this week, Boehner said he did not agree with Cole’s approach, saying the Republican leadership wasn't considering that bill.

 

Although Cole agrees with Obama on keeping rates the same for the middle class, he does not agree overall with the proposal that the Obama administration put forward this week.

“They must think that John Boehner is Santa Claus, because it was a Christmas wish list, it wasn't a real proposal,” he said.
