From the guy who nearly had a heart attack trying to cut $38.5 billion from what remained of the 2011 budget, comes this doozy:
"Without significant spending cuts and reforms to reduce our debt, there will be no debt limit increase," Boehner plans to tell the Economic Club of New York here this evening, according to remarks obtained by POLITICO. "And the cuts should be greater than the accompanying increase in debt authority the president is given. We should be talking about cuts of trillions, not just billions."
"Should" is the key word here.
