Boehner's Plan Unveiled

Fox News has the details of House Speaker John Boehner's two-step plan to raise the debt ceiling:

In the first phase, there would be $1.1 trillion in non-defense cuts with an increase in the nation's debt ceiling by $1 trillion which should last until April.

In the second phase, there would be a vote on a balanced budget amendment, which is designed to secure the votes of 59 House Republicans who have already pledged not to vote to raise the debt ceiling under any circumstances.

Right Scoop notes Boehner unveiled the plan on Rush Limbaugh's radio show.
