|The conservative group Club For Growth attacked House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) on Monday for offering President Obama concessions on taxes and the debt limit in the so-called fiscal cliff negotiations. 'First Speaker Boehner offered to raise tax rates after promising not to, and now he's offering to raise the debt ceiling,' Club For Growth President Chris Chocola said in a statement. 'Raising tax rates is anti-growth and raising the debt ceiling is pro-government growth -- and this is the Republican position?' Over the weekend, Boehner offered to push a fight over an increase in the federal debt limit off for a year, including a proposition to hike tax rates with on those with incomes of $1 million or more annually. 'Raising the debt ceiling would give away one of the best tools the Republicans have in their arsenal to force real reform,' Chocola added.|
