Boehner Suggests 'Cut-As-You-Go' Budget

Thursday, 30 Sep 2010 01:15 PM


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican leader who hopes to be the next speaker of the House is laying out his thoughts on what's wrong with the place and how it can work better.

House Minority Leader John Boehner (BAY-nur), who's hoping that Republicans take control of the chamber in November, says that House rules are rigged to "make it easy to increase spending and next-to-impossible to cut spending."

Boehner says it may be time for new rules on writing the federal budget, including a "cut-as-you-go" rule. That would require lawmakers to cut or end an existing government program any time they create a new one.

Boehner was laying out his ideas in a speech Thursday at the American Enterprise Institute. Excerpts were released in advance.
