Boehner blustering again
Boehner is taking a different tone today than previously, and sounds far more combative while avoiding talking about details on his own part – although Boehner claims that "we are the only ones with a balanced plan" to avoid the fiscal cliff.
According to Boehner:
The Democrats aren't able to come to serious conclusions on spending cuts.
He also complained to journalists that he doesn't know how the White House wants "to get serious about solving the debt crisis" despite talking to Tim Geithner and the president.

Here's an idea - if military spending (currently $1000 billion a year) - were cut by just 10% we would save a hundred-billion. I don't think the military would miss 10% of their budget.

1. Balanced Plan to Boehner is spending cuts, cuts, cuts except for the military. This is not hard.
A balanced approach is spending cuts along with revenue increases. Get it done. Does the speaker want to go down in history as the one who caused the US credit rating to go down TWICE? Now that is something to cry about.
