The Boehner Plan

House Minority Leader John Boehner spoke in Cleveland, Ohio this morning, and outlined a five point plan "to break the ongoing economic uncertainty." Here, devoid of spin or messaging, are the five steps he'd like President to take "immediately" -

  • Announce he will fully extend the Bush Tax Cuts.
  • Announce he will veto the Employee Free Choice Act, a carbon tax or cap and trade, and “any other tax increases on families and small businesses” if passed during a lame-duck session of Congress.
  • Call on Congress to repeal the provision in healthcare reform mandating that small businesses file IRS 1099 forms on purchases of over $600.
  • Reduce non-defense discretionary spending to 2008 levels.
  • Ask for and accept the resignations of his economic team, starting with Secretary of the Treasury Geithner and National Economic Council Director Larry Summers.

Boehner also said that "We've tried 19 months of government-as-community organizer," and that we should "put grown-ups in charge."
