West says that the Boehner plan certainly doesn’t have everything that he wants, but it does achieve the core of what he want which is cuts, caps, and a vote on a Balanced Budget Amendment:
I wish Cauvto would have pressed him more on the plan to get to the specifics of why West believes this is an effective plan as all West gave were plan talking points with no real detail. For one thing, how can we force future Congresses to continue with the cuts from this deal? What if the bipartisan committee can’t agree on more cuts? Does West really believe we can pass a Balanced Budget Amendment with radical leftists in charge of the Senate and the Executive?
This is really just a debt increase plain and simple without any real changes in the way we do business.
