House Speaker John Boehner told House Republicans Sunday night that the budget deal he hopes to bring to a vote as soon as possible is not ideal – but “it’s pretty much the framework we’ve been operating in.” He plans to start “selling” the legislation – which no one has yet seen — to Republicans on Monday.
In remarks Sunday night, Boehner said the plan would cut spending by a larger amount than the debt-limit hike and cap future spending to limit the growth of government. “It would do so without any job-killing tax hikes. And it would also guarantee the American people the vote they have been denied in both chambers on a balanced budget amendment,” he said.
