    Boehner made his "concilatory" offer to put revenue on the table.  It is all a SCAM and a SHAM.  It is the exact same offer he made during the debt ceiling debacle last time.  Only at that time he claimed he was NOT putting revenue on the table.

    Why is the media allowing this ruse to go on?  Even Gergen in his hack article misleads the public by stating that Boehner has had a "breakthrough" and is willing for the wealthy to pay more.  PUH-LEASE.  There is nothing new in what Boehner is offering.

    Everyone needs to remember that Boehner has signed the Tax Pledge.  Until he renounces that pledge, I don't care what he says publicly (misinformation/disinformation/propaganda), the GOP is not going to vote for revenue.  Boehner will never even bring such a bill to the floor.

    Why has not a single "journalist" asked Boehner if he is willing to violate his pledge?

    This is not even Kabuki theater.  It is just a con game.
